Punk Rock Parents: ABM! ABM!

ABM! ABM!

We live in an age where we shorten everything. When I leave the house for an errand I will always yell out a "BRB". Even Lou knows what I mean. Lately, thanks to our rushed mornings, there is a new one being yelled around the house. Most mornings you can hear me telling The Phi...

"ABM! ABM!"

ABM= ALWAYS BE MOVING

The Phi has this gift of making a 2 second task last 10 minutes. It's truly amazing. Every morning I found myself saying things like...

"are you still peeing? why are you still sitting there?"
"You don't need to rinse your toothbrush for that long."
"I have showered, changed, and put on my make-up and all you've done is take off one sock!" 


So instead I have made up "ABM". When I find her just standing there I yell out an "ABM" and she gets her butt in gear. This saves us a little time. And every morning we need all the minutes we can spare.
