I really want to make one of these... note to self: Start taking pictures of numbers and letters. The possibilities are endless!

Charlie started woodshop this semester and it turns out that I’m not the only one all excited about the potential of having homemade wood thingys around the house. His first project, after he aces the safety test, is a box. Samantha at dinner last night asked if she could please have it. Well, that’s not going to fly, my boy, my box, right? I want the shelf that’s up next too.

An argument ensued – and I found myself pulling out the “mother’s day is coming” card. I refrained from reminding them that the WHOLE FRIGGIN FAMILY neglected to do ANYTHING for me last Mother’s Day, but I reserve the right.

In an attempt to match me, Sam claimed Sister’s Day was coming up even sooner. “When?” we asked. “February 30th”. I promised her that as soon as February 30th rolled around we would have a HUGE celebration just in her honor.

Samantha is my absolute favorite person to play Balderdash with. I am cleaning off my desk and ran across two game slips I wanted to make sure and save so we wouldn't forget. May not have been necessary because the following two definitions seem to already be permanant additions to the family lexicon:

corking [kawr-king] - verb
1. Coughing up chewed on food

1. When a chunk of your nose is gone

I have no idea what the true definitions of these words are. But really, who cares?

At Samantha's request, I came home tonight with boxed Valentines and candy to distribute to her classmates. Charlie hadn't asked, so just to prevent another store run, I grabbed some I thought he might think were cool too. A combination of make your own sports games valentines and Gummy Rings with little phrases on them.

When I got home, I asked Charlie if he still intended to give out Valentines. (He DID last year). Charlie snorted and laughed and said, "NO MOM. I'd have to give one to like 400 kids." I told him I thought he could just hand them over to his buddies, like Nick. 

This made him laugh even harder... "Sure," he said, "I can hand it over and say, 'Here Nick, Be Mine.' "
