Karma and Green Beans

I sometimes say in respect to certain things that I have ‘paid my dues’.  I sometimes invoke Karma.  I’m not sure if I’m using any of these phrases properly but what happened this morning tells me that I might.

Today was Green Beans Day #2.  George was in a great mood but – being his usual wiggly self – managed to scutch me at every turn.

Mouth full of green beans –  talk to the cat – green beans on the floor.

Mouth full of green beans – kiss the Lamb Beanie.

Mouth full of green beans – chew on the snoolie (pacifier) – wipe the snoolie all over face.

Mouth full of green beans – hand shoots out to grab spoon.

Mouth full of green beans – chew on his tiny-bit-loose onesie.

If you’re getting the feeling of a bucking bronco then you know how I handled this.

Wipe off his face, snatch away the bowl, exclaim, snap back the spoon before he grabs it, exclaim, wipe off the snoolie, exclaim…all the while still feeding the boy without learning my lesson and thinking “why are you scuthing me this morning?!?”

And then it happened.  Before I had a chance to fill his mouth up again – he sneezed.  And I realized the scutching ain’t so bad.

I paid my dues.  I dodged a bullet.  I garnered some Good Karma.  Whatever.  I ain’t got no green beans on me.
