I'll take, "Things you should never have to say" for $1000


We all have things that before we became parents, we never would have said.  Things that seemed so self-evident, we wouldn't have even believed anyone would ever need utter these things.  Things that defy the very essence of the universe.  Things like, "Don't lick the trash can" and "No, you shouldn't put lunch meat on your soccer ball" (yes, I've said both of those.)  Here are this weekend's submissions from our household.

  • Did you put water in your water bottle? (after numerous times that they had brought along an empty water bottle after been told to get a water bottle.  The water part is NOT obvious.)
  • You have to comb all of your hair, even if you, personally, cannot see it.
  • Don't throw rocks at the windows
  • No, you cannot play "take turns being locked in the trunk of the car"
  • Peeps are not a pre-breakfast treat, you have to eat breakfast BEFORE getting a treat
  • Breakfast cannot be Peeps
  • When you are banned from your computer, this does not mean you can use your Dad's computer (or sister's or mother's)

I'm sure there are more that I'm forgetting.  I need to keep a running list somewhere other than my brain, as it is less than reliable these days.

Oh, and while looking for something to write about, I saw "101 Great Posting Ideas That Will Make Your Blog Sizzle."  Well, my blog definitely needs some sizzle, right? I jumped right in at #78 Create a post that utilizes a bar chart or pie chart.

 Now that's info you can use! I know people will be flocking here for this information.

Just wait until next time when I utilize another helpful tip, "incorporate the word 'crossover' into your post title."

    Wow! That pie chart quite accurately reflects the dishes situation in our house! Only it's missing one section.... The amount of time spent moving things around in the dishwasher so it they take up the most amount of space, thereby having to wash less dishes. I wish the would just realize that it just means another load for them. UGH!
