Raise a (My) Child

Hey Chickas! How was your Wednesday??? Mine was pretty good. Started at 7am, getting kids ready for school. I was just about ot make their lunches, when I decided to call the school and see if their free lunch was still in effect. WOOHOO! It was. That saved me 5 minutes worth of prep time - hehehe. I got the kids out the door by 7:30am, and everyone had eaten breakfast. Yesterday I had to send theim with baggies of cereal. Silly kids :)

Jake and I worked on his History, Health, and English. Captain America came home for lunch around noon, and I started Jake on his Math. Andrea and Adela and I went to the mall to go to the "Jewlery Box" to get some more fun stuff after lunch. My plan was to get some PINK in my jewlry collection, but I ended up with Black sunglasses, a green necklace, and a brown necklace, brown earrings, and brown bracelets. So much for adding color. You should see my closet. My biggest section is black - LOL! It IS my favorite color - hehehe.

I stopped by the Elementary school and picked up Tom, Eme, and Joe. I dropped them off at the house, then Tom and I headed to the TMC (Army doctors office) for his Immunizations. He had one 6 months ago, but needed another in the series. It was fast and painless, and we were home in about 20 minutes. Gotta like fast :)

It was left overs night, which the kids hated (but we had to get that food eaten, right?), and after the kids did their chores, they had free time. Captain America and I got to go on a little mini date. We decided to go and return his shoes (he'd got the wrong size) and go to Target. It was fun to walk around with Captain America, and just hang out.

We were home by 9pm, and everyone was asleep. And the house was still clean-ish. Beauty! I was SO happy :)

I got my weekly products designed, packaged, and uploaded to my store, and even watched a bit of the Tonight Show. It's been a while since I had the TV turned on :) I think I should stick to Fan Fic - hehehe. It's more entertaining. Well, at least until Prime Time TV starts. You do know that I'm a TV junkie, right?

OK, this WordArt request is from Sharon. I couldn't do just one side, so I did both. I know that last time I did a quote like this, I got a TON of comments on it, a few saying that they didn't agree with me. See how non-confrontational I am. hehehe. Both sides. Everyone is pleased. Right??? Hopefully :) I wonder which one will get taken more? I'll have to keep tabs on this one.

Hi, Bethany. I am a TOTAL believer in the concept of needing a 'village to raise a child'! But I can think of instances where the other quote would be just PERFECT!! Thanks for the smile you just put on my face!

Thank you for this word art. I also believe "it takes a village to raise a child". The only way not to have that help is to keep your children on a shelf at home and not let them have contact with other people. No teachers, scout leaders, little league coaches, etc.

Bethany, thanks for the quote. I know that if there wasn't a village helping raise my grandbaby, this grandma would be in the funny farm! LOL

Melissa said...

I'd be really interested in which is downloaded more! Do share the results:-)

Tricia Berg said...

Thanks, Bethany! I know exactly what you mean about not wanting "the village" to raise your child (as they see fit, not you). I "voted" with my download. It'll be interesting to see which version gets more downloads.

Hee hee - I believe in both. :-) So thanks for both. :-)

Bethany, I haven't downloaded either of the quotes, since I don't have a need for them. However, I felt the need to post a comment.
Your word art is wonderful, and I have more than a few of them. This selection of WA is about as bipartisan as you can get. You have both sides of the child raising issue beautifully. So to get crap over a request, is just that...crap. So compost any crap you get , make it Bandani, fertilize any creative seeds you have and go for it girl.

I giggled, then my hubby chuckled, then I downloaded. Thanks
