Funny Foto Friday: Mom, where are you?

Generally speaking, running has helped me laugh in the face of father time with joints that essentially do what I want them to and an ass that won't quit energy to keep after my son (except for long run day... those days I'm a gimpy, hungry, mess).  But, this week is an entirely different story.  I feel old.  The reason is pretty explainable.  Due to illness, I went from running basically 40 miles a week for the last month or so to an expected 60 this week.  Oyy.

This isn't what I would prescribe for everyone, but I like to think that as long as I'm healthy, 60 miles is essentially my base.  So, while I'm not increasing the miles like I should, I know that after a few complaints my body will basically figure it out and get with the program.  But, until then?  I'll be the 31 year old reaching for the railing in the handicap bathroom stall and taking the elevator to the 2nd floor.


This week's funny foto Friday makes me laugh every time I think about it.  I remember my mom doing a headcount whenever we went anywhere and were about to leave.  Granted, there were only 3 of us kids, but the more I have a kid of my own, the more it seems like losing him is an inevitable predicament.

I totally would have lied.  
"JUST KIDDING, in the bathroom with diarrhea. Will be out in 15 min"

Bonus funny pic!  I'm not sure why this optical illusion makes me laugh (because I'm 5), but it does.

Finally, while I've been sick over the last month, my son has really been a trooper.  He hasn't been TOO naughty and is even starting to potty train.  Thank God for cartoons.  Happy Friday!

The only way that you can tell I felt like death in this picture was my crazy bloodshot eyes! #Winning

Bonus kid pic!  This isn't my son, but I'll bet you $100 it will be, very soon.

Shortly after we acquired our fifth child, my wife took the entire brood to the local department store. She lost the two year old and freaked out. She had the two older kids seal off the exits and went to the security guard in a panic...before realizing she was holding him the entire time.

You may want to consider not having five kids.

Haha I like your comment on the text messages. I don't think your kid would question you on that!

Your son is very cute! :)

Glad you are feeling better.
Your son is so stinking cute.
I have to head count constantly and I consistently forget to pick someone up from somewhere.
It builds character or at least that's what I tell them ;-)
