Motherhood is hard work. If we don't stick together, we'll all fall apart.

Irony, n.

I thought it would be easier to just sit down and watch a movie instead of trying for naps. We were late getting having lunch because of the followup appointment at the doc's. I sweetened the deal for them by promising them their own bag of popcorn, and told them we'd start the movie when they'd each selected two toys to donate.
What could possibly go wrong?
Deciding which toys took fifteen minutes, since they--one in particular--were more interested in confirming toys to be kept.
Then came the popcorn. Mercifully, Madeleine took charge of that; then we started the movie.

With popcorn comes drinks and movie pausing. With drinks comes pottying and more movie pausing. With each movie pausing comes an adjustment of seating arrangements. Times three children. Louie got hold of someone's bag of popcorn and flung it about, spraying popcorn over a three foot radius and more movie pausing to sweep the mess up.
The movie's not even half over and I need a break from my break.

What's the irony? The movie I had chosen.
It's A Wonderful Life.
