    Yeah, the sticky Sweet Tarts are right up my alley. I've always encouraged the kids and grandkids to be thoughtful. They sure never saw that firsthand. My husband never gives me a gift for any occasion. I want the kids to do better.

    I wouldn't just settle for sticky Sweet Tarts, the best ones are also lint covered!

    Mmmmmm -- Sweet Tarts!
    (yes, it's been one of those weeks . . .)

    Oh, geez -- that's kind of off topic. And I don't have kids. Mmm. Let's see. Did one of my students say anything cute?

    Oh yeah -- I was doing a grammar lesson about direct objects and indirect objects with a sixth-grade girl. The example sentences had baseballs, basketballs, footballs, etc. as direct objects. The girl looked up from her reading and asked: "Is this lesson going to be all about balls?!" No, she didn't mean it that way. And, yes, I laughed!

    Maybe Orbitz will let you use the hovercraft.

    Shay, I am SO very glad my religion doesn't require me to give up anything for lent. But hey, Easter's not too far away.

    Yeah....only 2 weeks. BIG SIGH.

    And I don't think this is so much about "my religion", as it is my own personal discipline. Yes, I did grow up Catholic, but I am not a religious person. When people ask when the last time is that I went to church, I usually ask them to help me to remember when the last time was that someone died.

    Re: Cutest things you've heard your kids say

    My girlfriend called earlier and was telling me about her husband taking their three year old great grandson to Burger King yesterday. She said they stayed about two hours and when they came home she could hear the kid crying when they turned on her street. He came in and marched right on through to the den, sat down on the floor and bawled for several minutes. He had not wanted to leave the jungle gym thing at BK. She said that suddenly he wiped his hands over his face, stood up and said "I'm okay now" and went to find toys.

    While we were talking I could hear him coughing his lungs out. I wanted to mention that he probably got every germ that BK had to offer, while handling that nasty gym equipment but didn't figure she would appreciate me telling her how to raise a kid.

    Re: Cutest things you've heard your kids say

    My cousin's daughter is 9 years old and has one heck of a sassy attitude. She has one younger brother who is 3 years old and has a different dad than she does (she is very Irish with platinum blonde hair, blue eyes and fair skin and her brother is half Mexican with dark skin, hair and eyes- you wouldn't even guess that they were related let alone brother and sister). My cousin just had a third child with the same father as her son (of Mexican decent) and the first thing that Maddie asked when she got to see her mom was "Does she look like me or does she look like Mateo." She spit his name out like it was something sour on her tounge! My cousin said it was the funniest thing because she wanted a sister who would be a little mini-her. Marlee, the new baby, turned out to have blue eyes, medium skin tone and beautiful honey blonde hair; a perfect mix of her older brother and sister.
