The Pause Button
You know what I mean, right?
You want to freeze those adorable moments, to stay in that stage forever. For years, I complained I hadn't found the pause button! I wanted to stay at certain ages and stages forever.
At the time, I didn't stop to consider the fast forward, rewind and eject buttons. Those would be good, too. Maybe even better than that pause button I was fixated on.
Kid said something so funny that you want to share it with the world? Rewind
Kid's throwing a temper tantrum? Fast Forward
Meltdown at DEFCON 4 and climbing? Eject
Child has mastered something for the first time and your spouse isn't around to see it? Rewind
Wishing that bedtime was a little closer because they just are driving you INSANE? Fast Forward.
And someone else didn't get it about your child's special needs and you're paying the price? Eject (the other person), then fast forward until your child has calmed down.
Just think of the possibilities. Now, if only I could make it happen, I'd be rich!
