Kids vs. Adults, and Panic Moments

Kids vs. Adults, and Panic Moments

I’m standing in the line at the Wal-Mart pharmacy waiting to pick up some prescriptions for Tigress. This lady in front of me is holding her kid, and he’s acting cute like most little kids do. He’s talking to his Mom and all of the sudden starts asking if he has to take a nap when he gets home. He’s really not big on the whole nap thing. I’m thinking, “Kid, if I could go home and take a nap I’d be so happy.”

Shanti, is this common? Do kids just not like naps when we adults love them? In truth, is the whole napping concept really just for the parents anyway?

I had a little panic moment this afternoon when I couldn’t remember how long before the wedding I had to apply for the marriage license. Fortunately my friend who works for the county gave me the clerk’s office number (I was still at Wal-Mart when this thought occured to me) and I found out it only costs $20. All you need is photo ID, no blood test, and no waiting period. The 60 days thing was the limit before the license is invalid. Panic moment averted.

Next panic moment involves a bill from the hospital, and an insurance problem.
Fortunately, I was able to clear that one up quickly too. I love computers. When the hospital can log into the insurance company’s system and realize the problem is with them, and has since been fixed, it’s great. Especially since we no longer owe them $990. Like we’ve got it anyway. Sheesh.
