First things first, I am honored to have received the MI - You Caught and Kept My Attention award. Thank you! I love it. Malicious Intent’s blog is fabulous. If you haven’t checked it out, you should. I love her truth spiced with humor.

Now for some Wednesday Fun. A friend sent this to me and I loved it. Yes, I do believe I heard everyone of those from my mom. Alright, I probably used them on my kids too. Trust me, if they read the blog, they’ll tell you. In fact, knowing my wonderful kids, they’ll more than likely have one or two to add. :)
