Pass the bottle...

Someone who inspires me...

My children inspire me to be a better mother every day. Their dirty diapers inspire me to ramp-up the potty-training.
The Holy Spirit inspires me to continue my spiritual growth and draw closer to God.
Reading novels and eloquent words on a page inspires me to become a better writer.

Today's post should be about all of them...
... but it's not.

It's about a bald 4 year-old named Caillou.

Caillou, as much as I love the 23 minutes you give me to do a load of laundry and unload the dishwasher on a daily basis, my children have become obsessed with your non-stop chatter. The soundtrack of some people's lives are the rock anthems of Pink Floyd or The Who. Mine is the incessant whines of a cartoon character. As such, you inspire me Caillou. To drink. Heavily.

Damn Canadian cartoon children. Caillou's mommy can probably relate. I'm pretty sure she takes large doses of Valium just to get through the day so coolly.
