Little Bag and Bad Words








Hello Friends,
I just want to share my little purchase from my sister's shop. Yes, I really did BUY it....even though I know she's going to tell me I didn't have to. She's making these adorable little artist's pouches for us to carry all of our things in. I am going to keep a few pencils and ink pens inside for when I'm on the go. I realized the other day that I really need to start carrying my sketchbook with me because I come up with ideas for paintings and forget them by the time I get home. Most times I tell Jake, "Hey, remember this for me" and he always does. Unfortunately for me, he remembers everything!!
So on that note, I'll share a little story......
I've been a volunteer at Jake's school library for the past few years so I'm really friendly with the librarian, Mrs. Zino. Well, the other day I'm walking around putting books away while she was reading a story to Jake and his class. Apparently the story was about not saying bad words. So as she's explaining the story to them she says, "Mrs. Dodson, I know there are probably times when you feel like saying a bad word but can't. What word do you use instead?" Before I have a chance to answer Jake pipes up "She usually just say's the word." And then Mrs. Zino says with a smile "Ohhhhhhh, she does, does she?" Of course I was mortified but the funny thing is, I don't use really bad words. The worst thing I say is damn. So I promptly walked over and flicked him in the head! I have some video of him poopin in his diaper and I swore I'd never show it to anyone but I'm seriously thinking of reconsidering:) Future girlfriends maybe????? Paybacks are a BITCH.....read that Mrs. Zino.
I'm very excited to do the drawing for the Friday Giveaway tomorrow. Have a great day!!

The other day I took the kids out to lunch with Paul's mom, when I returned from the restroom (from washing my hands of course!) my son blurts out, hey mom, remember when you left me at the table all alone so you could change Ally's diaper??? WHAT???? I don't remember such a thing!
