I just came across this facebook post of mine from a couple years ago. It still cracks me up so I thought I’d share:
Phonics and spelling assessment for one child + math unit review for another = Momma gets to have a little a-d-d-i-t-i-o-n to her lemonade today!
= temporary relief from insanity
Remember, faithful readers, when my oldest came up with a handy excuse for her spelling mistakes, ala “a letter was missing because it wasn’t invited to the word party,” or the quotation marks were so low because “they had rocks in their boots”?
The latest came when the printer was running low on ink and the bottom halves of a few lines were faint to non-existent. My daughter said the words were stuck in quicksand.
In unrelated news, here’s an overheard conversation between my husband and our youngest daughter:
Girl: I got hand sanitizer on my pants. Will it stain?
Husband: Not if you wipe it off quickly. (I’m pretty sure he was just guessing.)
A second later…
Husband: Wipe it off with your hand not more clothing!
Anyone know if hand sanitizer really does stain clothing? If it caused a new stain I wouldn’t notice anyway.
