A fish in the toilet bowl

My 14 & 9 year old son's took my daughter down to the pond to go fishing. She comes back all excited waving a dead perch in my face. She then digs in her can a pulls out what appeared to be a dead minnow, goes into the bathroom to wash it. Then I hear her laughing and carrying on "Mama I dropped it in the toilet, I dropped it in the toilet and it is swimming" !! So of course all 3 boys go in and check this out, as I wait my turn in line at the bathroom door they all confirm it is swimming in the toilet. So now it's my turn and sure enough here is a baby fish swimming in the toilet bowl!! Guess who got to "fish" it out? Yup you guessed it, I did.

The joys of high school schedules

I remember in high school I ended up in the guidence counselors office every year on the first day of school to have my schedule fixed. Now it's times to do it with the kiddos. We had to go to school yesterday to turn in paperwork, get schedules etc. (this is all done before the 1st day of school). My son is scheduled for English 9 and English 10, he passed English 9. I can honestly say I wouldn't want to be a guidence counselor when it comes to fixing all of the mistakes on schedules!!

A girl and her shoes

My daughter got money for her birthday from all of her Grandparents. I asked her " so what are you going to buy with your birthday money"? Her reply: "shoes" We went shopping and she came home with a pair of sneakers, flip flops, dressy boots and a pair of slippers :) Now of course this works well as she likes a variety of styles in clothing so it gives her different shoes to go with the different outfits, but I can't even begin to imagine what it will be like when she is a teenager!!

Are clothes to sexy for little girls?

Okay, so I have been looking at clothes for my eight year old daughter. Are clothes getting to "sexy" for little girls or am I just getting old? Some of the clothes I saw looked like they belonged on someone much older. They even had little girls bras that were padded? I seriously am not looking forward to my daughter needing a bra, and when the time comes I won't be buying a padded one to make them look bigger!!! Maybe I just don't get out enough....but the styles seem a little "too old" for little girls...

Is it morning already rooster?

It is 4:30 in the morning and I can't sleep. So here I am on the computer. One of my roosters has decided it is morning and time to start crowing!! Not so sure the neighbors will find any humor in it!! He seems to be a confused rooster, crowing extremely early in the morning, all hours of the day right into the evening. I have tried to have a talk with him about proper crowing times to no avail. Maybe it is because I don't "speak" rooster that he looks at me with that crazy look and just crows again....
