You might think...

You might think that pudding would not stain a child's shirt very badly (compared to the usual suspects - berries, mud, Popsicles, dirty taxis, etc...) You'd be wrong

You might think that they would have warnings on knives like "talking on the phone while slicing peppers could be hazardous to your health". They don't.

You might think that if your daughter loves bottled peaches, you could just peel and slice one up for her right off the tree. You would be wrong. She wants them to go through the entire bottling process before she pops the lid off and slurps down a pint or so.

You might think that giving up soda (mmmmm, Pepsi....) cold-turkey would be hard. It isn't. Those handy "fat burner" green tea capsules have caffeine in them!

You might think if you accidentally lopped off part of your thumb with a butcher knife and all you had in the entire house was Scooby Doo band-aids, they might not do a good job with the whole "applying pressure and stopping bleeding" thing. You'd be right.

You might think that your lame thumb-injury isn't so bad because at least it's the left hand. You'd be wrong. Do you know how hard it is to braid hair with only 9 fingers? Minnie's pre-school teacher had to do her hair for her (it's cute!) Next time I'm going for Mr. Pinky.

So you'll have to let me know how well the green tea capsule really work. Of course, exercise is always good too. But I keep hearing about them and wonder what the hype is!

I would love to lose about 30 pounds, the sad part is I am not doing anything about it. LOL

You think!?
Brielle came the other day and told me Ms. Janae had done Minnie's hair and then preceded to tell me she wanted Ms. Janae to do her hair, too, because it was SO, so cute!

Hey Jeri! Fels-Neptha soap gets practically everything out of clothes. You can find it in the laundry isle for $1.
I hear you on the caffine thing. My addiction was forcefully thwarted by pregnany.
