Random Tid Bits

  1. If you haven't seen this movie do: I Am Big Bird

  2. I've watched it twice. It was that good. Yes it's about the guy that played Big Bird. I just love the creativity of his. A few things I learned, while watching it: 1. Big Bird almost went to space. Luckily they ran out of room on that space ship. It was the Challenger that blew up when I was in 3rd grade. 2. Caroll Spinney was great friends with Jim Henson. There's a lot more, but I don't want to give the movie away.

    It's creative, sad, happy, feel good kind of movie.

  3. I have 1 student that didn't show up all the first week of his classes. I mentioned something to administration and they said, "Ya he has a lot on his plate right now. He'll be in tomorrow." That tomorrow was said for 3 days. I hate when they tell you a student has a lot on their plate, but they don't say what. It's a small school. We all know each other. They get all secret like with some things, and totally not with others. It's so strange.

    There's been times where I've had a lot on my plate, and my sister that has 4 kids - 1 being special needs still shows up. I'd have more empathy if I knew why his plate is so full.  I think anyone would.

  4. I really can't wait for sunnier weather. I hate going home, and not being able to take photos because it's dark right after I get there. It makes reviewing products, or taking photos of my kids hard. 

  5. We had "Memories With Mom" this morning. Maybe it's called, "Doughnuts With Mom". Anyhow we played UNO, and Isaak won twice. Mica kept saying, "He cheated!" I don't know how you could really cheat in UNO. Someone was a little bitter about his brother winning.

  6. My kids are so different. Mica could navigate through a maze like Travis. Isaak could get lost going straight like me. We were at Khol's - having Mica try on shirts. Isaak had to go to the bathroom. I said, "Just go straight. I'll stand right here in the hallway between you both." I saw 2 store clerks directing my crying son down the straight hallway. He was seriously going to turn to go the left instead of straight. Mica was doing the typical big brother thing by laughing at him. I have to admit it was sort of funny, but not. Have you ever gotten lost in a store when you were little?

My girls are total opposites too. If Allison had come first, there wouldn't have been 2 lol. She's my wild, fly by the seat of her pants kind of girl. Mariah is very by the book and quiet.

I used to get lost in Kmart on purpose because I got a kick out of the service desk people calling my mom on the intercom to come get her child. She didn't find it amusing, but I always did!

I have had one of my kids get lost in the store. It was scary for him, but I knew where he was the whole time. My oldest though, slipped under the bathroom door at the beach when he was wee little, and by the time I got out of the stall he was gone. THAT was VERY scary!

Thanks for sharing that trailer for I Am Big Bird! Can't wait to watch it! :)

I think it's hilarious that Isaak gets lost going straight. I'm pretty bad with directions, but I don't think I'm that bad!

We have MUFFINS WITH MOM... but they don't do anything fun. You eat a muffin and then leave. lol

As for getting lost... I can't do maps. I need gps or I am gone.
