I lead a wonderful life, but a life with built-in stress. Family situations, autism, sobriety and my ridiculously sensitive nature sometimes all come to the forefront at the same time. So when the titans collided recently, I handled things in away that surprised even me.
My dear friend visited a Disney store on her trip to her home state, and brought back a pack of Muppets Most Wanted figures for me. I almost cried they made me so happy. Seriously.
(See, I used to have muppet figures a long time ago. I wore them on my college graduation cap and displayed them in my car. For real. Here's yearbook proof:)
So when I brought these figures home, and told my boys they weren't allowed to touch them, I started playing with them. I posed them and took pictures.
"Animal goes for a walk"
"TLA and they both look great in green"
"Walter - not yet 100% 'in'. Poor Walter."
Innocent, right? Well that didn't last for long.
"Equal opportunity frogs"
I couldn't stop laughing at my own immaturity. Then I hid in Peter's closet and jumped out and scared him. In my mind, hilarious!
See??? Total regression!
And just like that, BOOM! Not so stressed.
Laughter rules supreme.
