happiness in the mail!
it’s like holding the “candy store” in your hand!
THANKS granma Lily… we got your SWEET package!
they were so excited… their FIRST caramel apples on a stick… i know terrible mama!

we were “booed” last night too!
the candy mayhem has begun!
do you boo?
interesting… we may live in the boondocks but… they boo here too!  :)

now…
i’ve got to get going on getting our boo treats… so we can boo back
and
a gazillion other things!

with one birthday party this weekend AND another one next weekend…
it’s all a bit much.
funny how no matter HOW simple you make the parties…
a party is still a party!


now our “salty” of the morning…

curious what you would have done.
thursday is library day…
a few weeks back my daughter forgot her books…
so being the first time…
i ran back home… grabbed them…
took them back up to there… so she could return them & get new ones.
after school we talked about the responsibility & the consequence.

well… this morning… after lallygagging around all morning…
in the car on the way…
my daughter - ”oh mom i forgot my library books”
me -  “oh i’m so sorry”… “oh no”…
“i guess you’ll need to check them out again this week”
my daughter - “but MOMMMMMM”
me - “honey i am so sorry”!
you get the point!

i think it should be a small lesson learned…
she needs to learn to be responsible for them.
as much as i wanted to help…
sometimes you have to let them slip a bit… TO learn… right?

what would you have done?
lesson or rescue?
i’ll still love you if you don’t agree!  :)

now…
i have GOT to quit lallygagging…
i have a list stretching down to my toes!
happy Thursday yall…
even with all the sweet and salty it’s all good… they ARE good together!
