Wrinkles

Once upon a time, there was a scientist who questioned why some people tend to grey faster than others.
(probably wondering why his wife spent so much money on hair dye)


And why some people tend to age more gracefully with their wrinkles than others. 
(perhaps the six bottles of anti-aging cream on his wife's side of the bathroom counter made him curious)


So he first set about doing research on women's hormones, since they appear to be in some sort of drastic over-haul every couple of hours. 
(pish, and what would he know about that!)


He ran hair samples and skin cells, and all manner of curious tests. 
(he would have done well to get an MRI on himself)


But he could have just saved himself the trouble. 
(we women could have saved him loads of time if he had simply asked us! But maybe that falls under the rules of not asking for directions)


All he had to do was to look at home life to understand.

(I mean, running out of chocolate would be stressful for anyone! I know it has sure given me wrinkles!

Oh, and so would my boys standing on the baby bikes while the bikes are on top of the trampoline. Because the bikes would surely keep slipping to the edge.

Not that they would ever actually do that! Because if the did, I would surely end up looking like a three year old potato... after I took pictures of it of course.)


And it would have all made perfect sense.

The end.

Thanks. Now I know the etymology of my gray hair! Somehow, I suspected it all along...

=)

Neisha said...

oh my!

I found my first grey hair the very first time I took my brand new baby boy (who is now 15 to church)... true story. Hard solid proof that they're all his fault :)

Hahahahaha.....that's totally something my kids(and hubby) would do.....have done....

Lisa said...

Okay, so at least the trampoline is a larger surface than say, a table top? Or a dresser? So I think all is well. Right? Plus, gray can be disguised as blond highlights. It's all good. :)

I love the way you write and your happy and breezy perspective when it comes to kids.

I went outside to find a shovel on the tramp with the kids the other day. I went outside because I heard crying....can you guess what had happened? Yup. Shovel (luckily a small one) to the nose.

I want a tramp and I don't even have little kids at home anymore! I just want it to sleep out on. And maybe ride my bike just for fun!

Great pics

Well that explains it!

That's too cute, you are such a fun mommy.

And greyest and wrinkliest of the bunch would be the moms with young boys and teenage girls.

Cherie said...

Amen! My youngest was/is my "hellion" and I totally blame him for gray hairs!!
Your boys are darling :-D

Patty Ann said...

I love it. I used to have a sign on the fridge that said: "Wrinkled is the one thing I never wanted to be when I grew up!"
Yeah, those were the days!

Saimi said...

Couldn't agree more! Cursed grey hairs, just thankful for foils and dyes!

Miss having you visit, stop by some time!

Larsen said...

That is nuts. They were perfect angels here, no such craziness at all! Seriously. I am not being sarcastic this time.

Charlotte said...

They should just send you all the grant money and you can give them all the answers! It's a wonder I'm not completely white haired and deeply wrinkled in my "Why are you doing THAT?" face.

Larsen said...

Dont you dare look to close at my wrinkles. Ever.

Kim Coates said...

Definitely falls under the "don't ask for directions" thing. This is awesome!

Cheeseboy said...

I am hoping to decrease future wrinkles buy never buying a trampoline. Not working so far.

Mama Smith said...

I look at it this way...I EARNED all this WHITE HAIR...a symbol of raising "8" children and "husband"...I wear it with dignity! (smile)
