Here's how you know this is not a picture of me.
See the little love-bugs playing nicely with their teddy bears in the background? And see Mommy having a pleasant uninterrupted conversation?
Look at the serene yet engaged look on Mommy's face. Mommy is having a meaningful dialogue with another adult, which makes her happy.
Here is a transcript of MY typical phone conversation:
Caller: So what did the doctor say?
Me: He said NO! NO! PUT THAT DOWN! GIVE IT - GIVE IT - GIVE IT TO ME.
Me: Sorry. He said NO SHARPIES! NO! USE SOMETHING ELSE. THERE'S OTHER MARKERS.
Me: I'm sorry. He wants me to have a cardiogram.
Caller: Wow- do you want me to take you?
Me: NO YOU CANNOT. NO. I'M ON THE PHONE. I-AM-ON-THE-PHONE. Sorry.
Caller: It's Ok..you wanna call me later?
Me: No, no.. NO! DAMMIT, GET AWAY FROM HER - GIVE IT BACK.
Caller: So is he concerned..or....
Me: He thinks it's probably just stress.
Caller: Huh. Do you feel stressed about something?
Me: STOP. DON'T POUR THAT - IT'S TOO FULL- DAMMIT!!!! (sigh) No, I really can't think why I'd be stressed.
Me: I know.
