I arm wrestled my son last night, and not only did I lose, but I hurt my wrist.
"Can you make me 4 packs of oatmeal? I'll be down in a minute."
Has anyone gotten a more ridiculous text this morning? Bonus points if it came from inside your own house.
I actually love how this turned out 💕 My family really is humoring me with our walks and projects and cooking.
(I'm well aware it's only been 1 week (2 days for Ant), and we've also had plenty of video games and youtube too, let's be real! I'm ready to be done, but while we're all stuck here...)
My 13yo is living his best life, making hot lunches/eating leftovers every day. 😁🥘🍝🍲🥙
Point out the GOOD!
Last weekend a store associate was super helpful with (what I thought was going to be) a problem. I called the next day, asked for a manager, and told him the guy's name and the situation. He said that is *not* how, "Can I speak with a manager?" calls usually go 😬
And today, a teacher came up to me to tell me how amazingly well my son is doing in his class, and how he's an overall really great kid. It made my whole day! Even if I already know he's great, hearing it is priceless.
Report the good, not just the bad
Christmas tree carried in and fully set up-- who said teenagers aren't useful? 😉
I'm for whatever kind of healthcare plan doesn't lead to me paying $283 for a *generic* epipen, with expensive insurance and the copay coupon.
Pure robbery. Or maybe not pure. A touch of entrapment and extortion since the other options are more expensive and the alternative is potentially risking my son's life.
Somehow we've avoided a fight or fortune the last couple years, but it looks like it's on again.
"What's your name? What's your sign? What's your birthday?" [lyrics]
Wait, what does sign mean?
What sign am I?
What?! I'M CANCER?!?!
Here we see a preteen boy (Eaticus Sweatera). He has retreated to his cave after battle. Snacks, socks, and the sound of YouTube is all that can be detected. Best to let him emerge when he's ready, so as not to disrupt the delicate balance of power.
