Did you know that giraffes did not start out with long necks? They adapted them to feed at the high levels of treetops? Ohhh ohh, get this - On a manatee, the diaphragm and the lungs has adapted over time to extend the entire length of it's body cavity which lets it stay underwater for long periods of time to eat.
So it is no wonder today, that while picking up Kix cereal for the 4th time one actually suctioned to my finger. It really did, well, not really, but my story is better that way, don't you think? My theory is that a mother's adaption has got to be that we are all turning into Hoover vacuums.
We are constantly bending over to show our deriers in the air, and reaching our arms on the floor like orangutans to pick up whatever our children, who mind you are sooo much closer to the floor, leave behind. Whether it's cereal from a baggie, dirty laundry they haphazardly drop where ever they get naked, or toys that we just can't risk breaking our necks on, we are there to "pick up the pieces." (pun intended.)
So don't be alarmed if soon, you too reach down to the floor and find that the crap starts coming to you, like the dirt to a vacuum, or a paperclip to a magnet. There's nothing wrong, it's just a natural progression of nature, and for me, it couldn't happen soon enough.
