Don't push me

… cause I’m close to the edge.

Ah, Grandmaster Flash! I’ve always been a big fan of this song and I really didn’t think I could love it any more until it was used in a car ad around the time I was coming to grips with the sleep-deprived haze of new motherhood.

It was played constantly and it always got stuck in my head, becoming a daily anthem of sorts.

“It’s like a jungle sometimes, it makes me wonder how I keep from going under.”

And now, more than a year later I’ve noticed that the ad is back on the TV. While it still makes me giggle, it reminds me how quickly those jungle days, the newborn haze that seemed to stretch for eternity, end and you start thinking about doing it all again.

“I’m trying not to lose my head.”
