Interrupting Your Regularly Scheduled Blog Reading

Did no one else notice?
Or are you all just too nice? unlike me.

Proof reading is not a skill I have perfected.

And apparently numbers are not my strong point either as I can't even count to 21 correctly. I feel like my 4 yr old who counts to 8 and then randomly starts throwing numbers out. 1,2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 15, 17, 19, 25... when you call him on it he says that counting takes too long. Once you hit 8 it doesn't matter anymore.

I feel like my face belongs on a poster entitled, "This is why homeschoolers need more regulation."

Who knows, maybe my addition on the cost of the boxes of cereal was off and it didn't cost the equivalent of a weeks worth of groceries to buy 9 boxes of cereal.

So really it should be "How To Start The Day With Jedi Action In 24 Easy Steps". Though I would add a 25th step, one that was somehow overlooked in the initial post.

25) Convince children that contrary to what they believe, all spoons are IDENTICAL and therefore there is no reason to segregate them in various locations all around the kitchen. Because this will drive your mother insane the next day when you want to enjoy more jedi action eating but have forgotten where you hid your spoon.


Carry on.

I came back to comment on your last post and found this one. I not too good at counting, so it's lost on me.

Your little girl is beautiful. My little boy turns 2 on the 26th. I shed a few good tears reading your last post.

then you made me cry a little with the tribute to your beautiful little ones...almost makes me want another one...

great stories!

God bless.

I think Homeschooling sucks out our brain cells.....I didn't even think about adding it up. Don't even matter! LOL

Beautiful writing - from the heart. Your Birthday wishes story brought tears to my eyes.

I stumbled across your blog a little while ago and thoroughly enjoy reading your post. I am a mother too - it's nice to know I don't suffer the trials and tribulations of motherhood all alone!

Don't worry, I spelled slime (slim) wrong in my last post. :*)

Chris,
I LOVE your blog. I was led here last night by a post on thicketdweller's blog and I just couldn't stop laughing or reading. In fact, I blew off all of my housework last night, and started to read your archives. I had no less than three ACTUAL,water-on-the-monitor, had-to-get-a napkin, spit-takes. I love to read things that make me laugh out loud! I plan to finish reading the rest of your archives tonight, now that the baby's asleep. I've only ever read one other blog from start to finish, and that was my dear friend thicketdweller's :). I feel honored to be wasting my only free time of the day reading your blog. You are that good!
And I'd like to add that I never proofread my posts either. I figure that anyone who is overly concerned with my grammar and spelling, probably wouldn't like me anyway, so why should I bother to impress them?

And I came here because I laughed at a comment of yours in Michele's room. As Arnold says, "I'll be bawk"

Your blog presented a dilemma - I can't decide which post to showcase in my "Sampler" blog.

I'm just wondering how many of your readers (like me!) never even noticed the missing number...

It's hard to look for numbers when your eyes are watering from laughing so hard!!

I'll admit it... I never even noticed. You'd think I'd be more observant because of my writing and photography - but no.

I bought three boxes of cereal today - just so I could duplicate the fun at your house! I really enjoy your blog....

What's wrong with your counting? I think it's just fine.

Ahem.

::posing for that poster, too::

So you have spoon issues in your house too! As for your counting - I think you suffer from what most mothers suffer from - 'maternal amnesia' - for which the only known cure is chocolate... take heart!
