  1. "It needs to be more sleek and slippery." My perfectionist is practicing cursive.

      She loves those! Unfortunately she is a lefty so they are too messy for writing.

  2. Box checked: my 8 year old can finally tie her own shoes.

  3. I am delivering all nagging by singing telegram today. Strangely I am enjoying this more than my children.

      You are an evil genius.

      Awesome idea! Borrowing! :)

  4. Everyone is asleep so I'm curling up with a cup of tea and my newest seed catalog. Spring is coming eventually, right?

      I'm counting on it! Hope you enjoyed your quiet time!

      My kind of relaxing too

       

  5. It has been a coffee plus red bull kind of afternoon...

  6. 6 kids who use pencils. Two sharpened pencils in the house. Broken pencil sharpener. Send help. (Imagine I'm typing this in crayon.)

      I called it a craft day and tore through our construction paper stash! Husband brought home TWO pencil sharpeners, thank goodness!

      I found a cheap battery operated sharpener at Big Lots and it is working great! I have to hide the pencils in different places so we don't run out! I also have to hide the sharpener! Kids ruined my best electric sharpener with Crayons :(

  7. A little dance party in the morning never hurt anyone.

  8. My husband shows his love with a Big Bang Theory calendar. :)

      *Lulu*

      He's a keeper then!

  9. Why is the person providing my son's speech and OT calling us to ask if he has an IEP? That's *why* she comes to our house once a week.

  10. The third load of laundry ruined by a crayon this month? I'm on a rampage. No art supplies are safe.

  11. Reading all these recommendations from the SLP and OT have me convinced that I am the source of every challenge in my children's lives. I have awesome genes for longevity but poor genes for functionality.

  12. When did the top banner change to a picture of a tree?

      hmmm...I noticed it this morning but haven't been checking in here much lately. I do like it though.

  13. Should I hide from the children on the front porch or in the bathroom? There's no chocolate involved, but wine will be after they're in bed!

      I once hid in the top bunk and they never thought to look there...almost a half hour of alone time

      Brilliant idea! I'm using that next time.

  14. After so many comments that I needed an avatar...here it is. How anticlimactic.

  15. Did I need to find dead chickens in the driveway when I'm cleaning the house for my son's transition meeting?

  16. Can someone please PM me the eyebrow shaving reason?!

    1. beaners

      beaners

      Got it! Thanks!

  17. I just threw away our huge bin of old, broken crayons. That was cathartic.

  18. Confession: sometimes I steal my daughter's slap bracelet so that I can play with it.

      If she has long hair, get a hairgami-it's basically two snap bracelets attached together, covered with cloth. I have several around for dance, and they're just plain fun.

      Oooh, I'll have to check that out!

  19. My son is wearing barrettes and a ponytail. My MIL would pitch a fit.

  20. Making dandelion tea! We are so weird.

      Hey! Are you making jelly? I have an awesome recipe for dandelion jelly. Tastes like honey!

      We love dandelion jelly!

  21. I needed to finish the box so that none of the remaining cheez-its could tempt me. This is why I don't normally buy them.

      I am so with you, but the sale was buy-one-get-one so I just HAD to!

      This is why I don't buy Cheez-its or Cheetoes. Once I start......

      My mother + potato chips = empty bag

  22. Dancing around the kitchen to the Cure after everyone else is asleep? I needed that.

      fantastic, I love Modern English for that too, or Talking Heads. ;)

  23. I'm having red wine with my hamburger helper dinner. In my defense, it's a new "classy" flavor.

  24. There are ants in the kitchen. So I'm having a panic attack. That is all.

  25. Is anything more disheartening than throwing in the towel and calling to order pizza...only to have no one answer and realize you need to cook after all?

      I tried to call the place in town, and the places 10 miles away don't deliver. :( The kids were happy with stuffing and canned vegetables.

    3. unsinkable

      oh,(beaners)I wish I could send you a pizza! Oh, I just remembered a 6th place...it is more upscale and has panini
