Grant’s class is studying the US Postal system… how to address an envelope… where the stamp goes, etc. They are practicing writing letters too. I received the following letter in the mail yesterday: (Just in case you can’t read it… here it is word for word.) Dear Mom, Your the BEST mom ever! You also […]
A county fair… bad food, bad prizes and good fun.
Did you go to a county fair this summer? My neighbor Melissa said in an Instagram upload, that a county fair is the Olympics of People Watching. Oh, amen to that. It’s also the Olympics of Fried Food. It’s also the home of giant food… All. Kinds. Of. Wrong. And if you’re going to eat […]
What’s the secret code for getting out of homework…?
I am soooooo glad it’s the end of the school year! I am tired of fighting The Battle of the Homework. Going through Grant’s papers I found this: The assignment was to look up a word and write the definition. While it would no doubt have helped if he had spelled concert correctly, he appears […]
Favorite Songs: Grant shares his Top 4.
Scene: driving Grant to his football game last night. I am punching through radio stations, looking for a good song. Grant pipes up from the back seat… Grant: “Mom, do you want to know what my favorite song is? Born To Be Wild!” Me: “oooo! Nice one!” Grant: “And also? No Sleep Til Brooklyn.” Me: “The […]
In addition to mph, some speedometers measure nagging as well.
My parents are visiting friends on the East Coast. They left their car parked at our house and I drove them to the airport. In their car, I noticed this…. Little strips of pink sticker on the speedometer. The stickers correspond to 25 mph (“David! Slow down! You’re in a neighborhood!”) and to 65ish (“David! You’re […]
Make your bad photos work to your advantage.
I love photos! One of my favorite items to use when decorating my house is photos. I have never been one to line the hallway with my kids’ school portraits (not a criticism if you do it… to each his or her own…). We haven’t had a whole lot of family portraits taken (the last […]
Blinky McBlinkerton’s Vlog #2
Have you met Mamarazzi and Shawn? Have I mentioned how much I adore these two bloggers? Have I mentioned that I am taking a little trip toward the end of May to meet up with Shawn (and JennyKate, Impulsive Addict, Harried Mom Of Four and Becca) In Real Life? And that I will have a […]
Legos have a soundtrack.
Yesterday, Grant was playing with his Legos in his room. He was making the typical little boys noises: vroom, pow, crash, etc. Then those noises gave way to singing. Not just any singing. Singing that lets momma know that big brothers have been playing SNL episodes on the DVR when Grant is around. Singing of […]
Let’s work together.
Handsome Hubby and I try to teach our boys to be respectful, well mannered and self sufficient. We want our future daughters-in-law to like us. Each night after dinner, their job is to clean the kitchen and dining room. (I cooked… it’s only fair that they clean up.) So last night after dinner all 4 […]
Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies. Salty-Sweet heaven.
“Mmmm. Move over, eggs. Bacon just got a new best friend – fudge.” Homer Simpson Bacon. And donuts… Wait. This is about bacon. And chocolate. Together. In a cookie. Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies. A little bit of salty sweet heaven! Some may scoff when they first hear of the combo. Like caramel and sea […]
