Making appointments or simple phone calls is pretty much impossible these days.
I don't know what it is about me being on the phone that makes my kids freak out and need me right then. I try and sneak away from them to make a call (you know, if they're, like, engrossed in a snack or Mickey Mouse Clubhouse or something), and without fail, they always find me and choose that moment to want to play, to complain about their attire, or to projectile vomit. It's uncanny.
I especially can't just answer the phone and expect to have a normal conversation without experiencing something similar to these scenes.
Also, for some reason, any time the phone rings, I'm elbows deep in a dirty diaper either here:
(I'm spraying out a dirty diaper in the toilet, here, in case you're curious.)
So, if you're wondering why I never seem to call (or answer the phone), wonder no more. And, you're welcome.
