Trick or Treating

FL decided to be a mummy this year for trick or treating. After an hour of walking, she said her eyes hurt because she hadn't been blinking. When I asked why, she told me a little known fact: mummys don't blink. Who knew?

Pick Me Up?

In my struggle with being organized, I am trying to emphasize to the kids that if they have plans, activities, parties, church doings, whatever, that they should put it on the calendar. Here is what I found today.

Don't know who, what, where, but I do know at 4:30 on Thursday the 20th Something is happening. Hope I can be ready.

Age-Activated Attention Deficit Disorder

Yes! Just like I said, Adult Onset ADHD! Now I have proof. So if you come to my house and don't like what you see, just remember this video.

No Thank You

Nothing like a child offering you a bite of cookie at the same time he sneezes on it.

LO and the Wants

remember, LO is my little neighbor boy that comes over to play with FL when his dad goes to work.

LO watching tv: "me wants that!" I reply: "cool train!"

Another commercial: "Me wants that!" I reply: "cool truck!"

I see the next commercial and say: "What about that? Do you need some of that?"
LO replys:"No, me a kid! me no like toothpaste!"

LO sees another commercial and says "FL wants that! Then I can play with it! I'll tell her she wants that when she gets home."

FL being a FL

I was on the phone last night talking to my sister when FL barged into the bathroom. (Yes, I have to hide in the bathroom to talk on the phone.) FL came in with a paper and proclaimed she was my lawyer and had a "document" for me to sign. "If you refuse, you'll have to go to court and get put in jail." So I read the document and it seemed strangely familar. It read "Have you ever been convicted of a crime? circle yes or no. Are you on any medication? circle yes or no." I asked where she got this. "I copied it off of my brother's job application," she said. 

Joke of the Day:   Signs that you have picked the wrong lawyer:

Your lawyer has a red briefcase that is full of crayons.

Your lawyer's office is in a bathroom.

Your lawyer brings you popcorn to eat in her office (bathroom.)

Your lawyer spells "convicted" wrong.

Your lawyer is 7 years old and doesn't comb her hair or take a shower without a temper tantrum.
