In my house...

  • In my house, being “high” has everything to do with the pasta we ate with dinner, and nothing to do with drugs. 
  • In my house, being "low" isn't just a state of mind, it's an emergency.
  • In my house, a forensics team would find blood residue in ten thousand places. 
  • In my house we avoid politics, but if you mention a raw food diet cure, you get a (polite) whooping.
  • In my house, drinking apple juice at 3am while sleeping is normal. 
  • In my house, the dog is more likely to poop test strips than anything else.
  • In my house, crackers in bed are not only allowed, they're encouraged.
  • In my house “what’s your number” doesn't refer to a cell phone. 
  • In my house, blood is seen as an opportunity - and no one is squeamish (anymore).
  • In my house, you DARN WELL better finish that junk food on your plate!
  • In my house, if you act drunk, we stuff you full of apple juice instead of coffee. 
  • In my house, brushing your teeth after you eat is optional (when it's 3am).
  • In my house, teaching responsibility is literally a matter of life and death. 

Can you imagine what it's like, in my house?

  1. That sounds like "our house", too! It helps to know other struggles with many of the same things. Thanks for sharing!
