      I miss her! And it's weird to think that I won't know whether she's doing okay or not. Even if she writes, it will take several days for the letter to get here.

      I mean, I was a camp counselor in my youth. I know she'll do fine. All of them do. But this feels DIFFERENT.

      My DS goes to sleepaway camp for the first time this Friday. I'm already a mess.

       

  3. For the first time ever, I have run out of "likes." Thanks, Obama!

  4. Alex is having a slumber party. It's only 9:54 and I am well past ready for bed.

      I hope you got some sleep! I hate slumber parties. Who decided that is the "it" thing for tween girls to do for their birthdays? Parents tired of parties at jumpy play centers?

  5. OMG lice. Someone please hold my hand. Alex has waist-length hair.

      I agree, a lot of movies, conditioner and patience...

      Worked on the kids for almost eight hours straight yesterday. Electronic lice zapping comb, then medicated shampoo, then nit combing. Thank God for my regular babysitter who came over and did many loads of laundry while I combed.

  6. I am ooooone like under a "popular" badge on page 1 of the "no school for two years" thread. Not that I'm so uncool as to keep track. *sulks*

      You made it! I went over to give you a bump, but you were over the top! What an accomplishment. Now maybe I should actually read the thread! LOL

  7. I can't wrench my attention away from the Alecia Pennington thread. It's making me so sad.

      I didn't hear about the case until today but got scared off by the length of the thread. The whole case just seems so odd and sad :-(

  8. I bought my first pair of yoga pants. My life is forever changed! They are SOOO COMFY!

      I love this from one of Khristne Billerbeck's books. Paphrasing here..but was something like"officially they are called yoga pants. Unofficially they are the pants that I eat ice cream in." Love that.

  10. So how old do kids have to be before they catch on to "Daddy and I are going to take a nap now"?

      That is why we "do laundry" instead of take naps...no one interrupts chores :)

      Right now I think they just feel super lucky that they get to watch a movie.

  11. Is it mean to call my daughter "Alanis" when she misuses the word "ironic"?

    1. bobbeym

      bobbeym

      depends on whether she gets it or not. :)

  12. Bless Michael, he's taken the kids out for the WHOLE AFTERNOON so I can have a Mother's Day of peace and quiet.

  13. Text from a good friend: "Just did an open house at the local elementary school. Holy hell, when can you come over and teach us how to homeschool?"

      LOL. We made our final decision after an open house right before school started!

      Ha - homeschool consulting = $50/hour, no? ;-) I know that feeling well. I wish them luck!

  14. Volunteer-teaching outside classes would be awesome except for two things: the kids and the parents.

    1. FuzzyCatz

      FuzzyCatz

      LOL - isn't that the truth.

      Sigh...were you at the same committee meeting I was today??

      It can also be good to use the ignore feature when needed - and to just avoid some boards!

      Still remember first business trip after having the baby. I planned on sleeping 15 hours straight. No such luck :)

  20. If someone gave your 3-year-old a harmonica, would you consider that an act of aggression?

      You just have to hope the guilty party will have a 3 yo of their own in a few years.

      Swimmermom3, I know someone whose mother in law sent her 2 year old a drum set when his new baby brother was born. Can you imagine anything worse?

  21. Augh! Colin has pinkeye.

  22. Just scored a beautiful Hanna Andersson dress at the thrift store - $2!!

  23. I just put away 45 of the 47 books we had on our coffee table. But I swear we don't have a problem. We can stop reading any time.

      47 books on the coffee table is perfectly reasonable. Now how many do you have on your kitchen floor?

    4. Rivka

      Rivka

      Beaners, zero. Zero books on the kitchen floor. (Don't ask about books on the service bar, the bar chairs, or the birdseed box.)

  24. I am going to be good. I am going to be good. I am going to be good. I am going to be good.
