Fun Reads

Hope you have a great weekend. I found a few links I thought I would pass along....  

I laughed my way through this funny article by Jen Hatmaker. I saw it on twitter and then my sister sent it to me. My giggles really started when she mentioned the kid with the paper taped to her shirt. I can completely identify with that mom.  Completely. I not only become a poor mother towards the end of school, but pretty much with the entire childhood of Child Number 3.  For instance: Child Number 3 has a "Connections Awards Ceremony" twice a year where I am supposed to go sit in the gym on hard bleachers and watch him receive an award  - not an academic award - but another award - pretty much an award for showing up to class and behaving. Both times this year I simply said "Sam, do you mind if I skip this?." He knew I had nothing else to do - I just honestly could not attend another event. He was okay with it. In fact, I believe he would prefer that I not show up for most events. He is to THAT stage. Personal space and all.  

Jill is someone I know in real life and always has an inspirational post: Shine Girls

If you can read about wonderful places to visit, without getting all "woe-is-me", then look at these photos in Coastal Living....



Have a great weekend!

At least you know when those awards events are. I always seem to miss the emails or calls announcing them. You should be more like me and then you wouldn't have to be torn whether or not to go.

I usually notice because there are a lot of cars when I drop him off - "uh oh - why are all of these cars here?" - Every now and then he shows me a note out of his disgusting bookbag. There is no way I am going in there.
