I turned on Dr. Phil yesterday while Mary Grace was at school and I was home with Jack and Claire. I don't know why. I almost never watch television. I wasn't even really paying attention to it, and I couldn't tell you what the topic was. I just wanted some noise, I guess.
Anyway, so Dr. Phil throws to a commercial for this:
...and Claire, who was sitting at the kitchen table coloring and wasn't even supposed to be paying attention said, "You should get some of that Mommy."
"What?" I asked.
"For your eyes," she said, as she pointed to the area below her own eyes. Where the bags under my eyes have grown their own bags.
"No," I said, (I did not say, "No, smartass," though I wanted to) "I need your brother and your sister to sleep."
This, my friends, is why I almost never turn on daytime TV.
