B: We have to just get Jack a new computer so he can have Minecraft.
B: Hey, Mama. I’m sure Bigfoot likes rainbows. And if he sees a unicorn, he’d just kill it like a big jerk.
Blake, taking a shower: Gotta get my armpit…now my kneepit…
Blake, talking about the story he wrote: So he upgraded Bambi, apparently.
After some discussion of Blake’s story, I realized that he had never seen the movie. Jack said he didn’t remember seeing the whole thing. So we popped some popcorn and watched Bambi.
Heard in a group of social entrepreneurs: I’ve been trying to figure that out, too!
Heard in a group of homeschooling moms: So my kid isn’t the only one who does that?
We hear it all the time, but I’m not sure it really sinks in for many of us. It just hit me yesterday, after spending a couple of hours with several homeschooling moms, a few of whom I had never met. We have more in common with those around us than we realize. We are not alone. Continue reading It’s Not Just You

Right now, I’m reading A Writer’s Coach: An Editor’s Guide to Words That Work by Jack Hart. It’s entertaining and educational. It’s edutaining! Or entercational. One or the other.
For even more entertainment, I’m reading about dead bodies in Concealed in Death by J.D. Robb. I somehow let myself get a couple of years behind on this series so I’m playing catch-up. I’m almost there. If this book doesn’t bring me current, I only have one more. I think.
That list doesn’t do you much good, though, if the only thing on it is milk, bread, and chocolate chip cookies. (Don’t worry. I’m not going to suggest you skip the chocolate chip cookies. I wouldn’t mind if you threw one this way, though.) With eMeals, you not only get a weekly meal plan, you get a fabulous app that generates a shopping list for you! You can even add your own items to the list! (Don’t forget those cookies!) Continue reading Free Fall Recipes from eMeals + Giveaway
B: Why do I keep getting sick? Does the virus come along and say, “Hey, he looks good. I’ll eat him,” and jump on my head?
J: What do you call a cow with no legs?
B: It’s okay when other people smile, but when you do it, it’s creepy.
Blake, after checking the battery level on his tablet: All the percent is almost gone.
B, all in one breath:I like helping people. Like you and Daddy and Jack. Like putting up my clothes and holding doors and stuff. Like for you and Daddy and Jack. And myself. I just put the stuff down and open the door.
J: Blake please leave me alone for a while! Mama, please tell Blake to leave me alone for a while!
