Just wanted to share a little something...
So I am sure if you have been reading my blog for the last couple of days you know that I have started a new program at my house called "Mom School." Mom School is basically summer school for my kids taught by ME. My kids need some structure over the summer and stuff to look forward to. Mainly because I don't want to hear those words that we all dread, "Mom, I'm bored."
So Monday was the first day of Mom school.
Every morning I give my daughters some writing prompts.
This morning both girls chose the same writing prompt. The prompt was, "If cows gave root beer instead of milk, what would happened?"
My oldest daughter who is 10, wrote the following story.
I actually think it is quite creative so I am going to share part of it with you.
"If cows gave root beer instead of milk, we would probably wouldn't have the long exhausting journey to Family dollar because my mom doesn't buy soda often enough." We walked to Family Dollar today for a gallon of milk, #1 it was the closest store that sold milk (hubby had the car) #2 Family Dollar is like a mile away. Not far way at all.
Back to the story.
" My mom would have to find a nutritious breakfast alternative, because we usually have cereal and milk for breakfast. And most kids would have a pretty sad life because most desserts that kids like have milk in them. Plus a lot of families make a living off of making cereal, which probably wouldn't sell as well, because most people who buy cereal are buying it to have for breakfast."
She goes on to talk about how children would not get the nutrition they need for healthy, strong bones and it is a good thing cows don't give root beer. My 10 year old really is quite brilliant. I wouldn't have guessed she was so concerned with nutrition. I must be teaching her well then. :)
One more thing I wanted to share with you is that Google analytics is a good thing to have. Except for when it lies to you. You see back in March, I was boasting, well, err..uh... not really boasting, just sayin' that I was getting about 1,200 pages per view. Well for the month of May, I got about 500 pages per view.
Where did y'all go?
Am I boring you?
I think Google Analytics is out to get me. But I have my eye on him. Don't worry, I'm still here.
Blabbing your ears off probably. I probably should only post about 3 times a week, but I just can't. I got too much to say.
Well, my treadmill is calling me again. And so is that cheesecake, thanks to Krista. Thanks, Krista. Where am I am going to get some good cheesecake now? You owe me girlfriend. :)
I report my miles into Mama Nut tomorrow. Boy, oh boy.
You'll see how I did tomorrow, OK? :)
