Good news my friends! Amy Wilson, author of When Did I Get Like This? has offered to send a signed copy to one of my readers! (Remember my review on it a couple days ago?)(I really liked it.)(You will too.) To be entered into the drawing, comment on this post, or the original review post if you haven't already, and tell me one thing you have done as a mother that you swore you never would before you had kids.
In the spirit of fairness, I will tell you one of the many things I do as a mom that I said I wouldn't: I will plop my children in front of movies for hours at a time so I can get other stuff done. I'm still worried that their brains are going to fall out of their left ears one day. But, in my defense, they can't watch on school days. But let's not talk about how well they make up for it on weekends, holidays and summer vacation. It hurts my soul to think about it.
Sophia had a song she learned in preschool stuck in her head yesterday, and told me as much. Then she commented that "brains can only have jest one sing stuck in zem at once," so I asked her if Jesus was still stuck in her head.
I'm sorry to say, that no, he isn't. She informed me that she was being really crazy the other day and, well, he just fell right out.
I just baked a cake from scratch. It's in the oven as I type. I only did it because the PTO Carnival committee at the Elementary school needed cakes for the bake sale so I said I'd provide one. Unfortunately, I haven't had a single stitch of time to go and buy a mix. So I made it from scratch, which is a first. I'm rather proud of this feat, but Joel is just glad that the experiment will be going to someone else. Oh well, at least I know it will look pretty.
Speaking of The Maestro, he gave his last final the other day and is sitting in the other room grading them. I always enjoy his running commentary as he grades essays and questions. There are always one or two students in every class who clearly didn't study or listen much, and their answers are entertaining. And that probably makes me a really bad person, but well...it's funny! And for the record, Wagner was not Polish, surely everyone knows that?
Chloe lost a tooth yesterday and she left the most adorable note in the entire world under her pillow:
And, nice try, Chloe, but the Tooth Fairy only gives a dollar. She didn't seem too disappointed this morning, but the feelings usually come out after school. We'll see...
Now, just in case you've already forgotten, if you'd like to win a signed copy of When Did I Get Like This?, make a comment! And then go have a wonderful Friday!
We so excited.
