Small Successes

FaithButton
Go to Faith and Family Live, a great Catholic magazine to join this activity.

1. I apologized to my son's elementary school hall monitor today for blowing my top last week because the school is grim and harsh like the Pink Floyd song "Another Brick in the Wall." Then she offered me some pudding.

2. Baby Bigfoot used the potty, (and the mud room floor).

3. I took time to read a book to myself that did not contain illustrations of trains with faces or ducks with high ambitions.

It sounds as though you are making great progress. In what, I can't imagine. :)

Love numbers two and three. :) I haven't started potty training yet, and Sunshine still just likes turning the pages and looking at the pictures, so doesn't care if I read to her or not. However, she also likes reading my books or stealing my bookmarks...

Sounds like you are getting a good early start in with Big Foot! I would have loved to have been there when you "blew your top"! I just wrote a complaining letter to my daughter's teacher who took points off because she handed in an assignment late because she was SICK because she was out in the rain helping the 2nd graders with field day! Ugh!

ROLMBO... about the books...

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.

Fondly,

Loren Christie
