Another Year of Childhood, Gone

J1 started middle school this year.

J2 started second grade.

I cry on the first day of school as their bus pulls away...every year. This year it was twice because they now go to different schools. In a few years, it will be three times in one morning!

I'll just have to call in sick on that day.

My Eleven Year Old With Cholesterol Problems

J1 is almost twelve years old. She eats Cheerios for breakfast every morning. While watching a commercial on tv this afternoon, she looks at me and says, "Mine must almost be gone!"

I'm like "Huh?" I don't even remember what the commercial was about.

J1 says, "That guy's cholesteree was down. I eat Cheerios every morning, and the box says my cholesteree is lowered every time I eat it. So, mine must almost be gone!"

I said, "CholesterOL?"

She rolled her eyes. "That's what I said. Cholesteree."

Things My Husband Said

Me: "Do you ever regret marrying a woman who can't cook?"

Husband: (after pondering a moment...) "No. It wouldn't be up to my standards anyway."
