DVD Cleaning

When you let a six year old put a DVD in the DVD player, sometimes they get coated with a mixture of peanut butter, jelly, snot and glitter.

Through trial and error, I have found the most effective way to clean these DVDs is to use rubbing alcohol and paper filters for coffee.

And not to let the six year old put a DVD in until she washes her hands.

Still Does Not Have her Two Front Teeth

001

Yes sick again.

Since yesterday's Crackerville visit, kidlet woke up with a fever.

Chuy puked last night.

The old bag had bronchitis and proceeded to hug my children and cough all over them.

Yeah, it's going to be an AWESOME holiday.

Rainy Day Visiting Crackerville

We went to Crackerville.

Apparently, some people cook meth and lose custody of their grandchild.

Because the powers that be know enough to take their kids away but not the grandchild.

How to know you are bad at parenting: When you have to do it again for the next generation.

Grey Day

So it has been a grey Tuesday.  Which makes me feel lethargic, so no pictures today.

Stand or Sit?

This article is very thought provoking.

I never knew that there was something called The Washington.
