It’s Not All Mary Poppins

It must be PMS

Three three-year-olds sit in my front hall, each working hard to put their shoes on.

“Anna, lovie, you have that on the wrong foot. Put it on the other one.”
She takes it off one foot, holds up the other.
“This one?”

You know, normally this is cute.

“Timmy, that’s the wrong foot. Other foot!”
“This one?”

Normally, that’s pretty funny.

“Emily, why did you take it off? You had it on the right foot. Now you have to put it back on the other foot.”
“This one?”

Normally I find this goofily sweet. Today?

Today I do NOT say,

“Oh, for the love of all that’s holy! You only have two feet. Which “other” could it be? DUH.”

I do not say it, because I am a True Professional. I do not say it, but I think it. Because I’m human.
