Go Go Gadget Arms


I have noticed since Elle entered the world that my arms have grown longer. Ok, maybe not really but my brain thinks so. So often we are driving in the car & Elle wants something & I think that I can reach it. Actually, often I do reach it…while driving! The worst is when she wants a snack & I contort my arm (she sits behind the drivers seat) betweent the front seats, behind me, & and hand her 2 goldfish at a time. Nobody ever warned me that I will have Inspector Gadget Arms when taking on the Mommy title. This is reason #743 that I don’t want to own a mini-van!

    Oh, you can still do this in a minivan…it’s just more dangerous, and you can hurt your shoulder doing it. I’m serious. I did.

    And trust me, once there are 2 or more children, the minivan seems oh-so-desirable, despite it’s dorkiness. Let me just say that we felt incredibly cool going to the Fundamental Elements show in our minivan. It rocks.

    Kelli, you grew up in a van. But we were too cool to go the “mini” style. Remember the bench seat that would flip over to face the back and the table would come up between the seats? You guys LOVED that on trips! Or we would lay them both down so you could sleep. That, of course, would be totally illegal now! Thank God you survived all of your mom & dad’s dumbness!

    p.s. for anybody wondering … we were not homeless and Kelli did not literally grow up in a van. I was speaking metaphorically.

    Ron, thank you for making me laugh. I know all about Kelli’s homeless childhood.

    Why do you think I’m so musically inclined…I grew up in a van, just like Jewel.

    Well, you are a jewel so you are partly right.
