100 Things

Some days I worry about my own sanity.

Quintus has to take 100 things to school tomorrow. Thinking that I can’t send my child to school with 100 coins, I decided to make 100 tiny pencils from the zillion pencils lying around our house.

What on earth was I thinking? I have blisters on my hands from cutting and sharpening. It is really cute though πŸ™‚ It was so adorable when he saw them and said “I’m so glad YOU are my mom”

I got this funny e-mail that I just have to share:

One morning Pappa bear and his son came down to the dining room to have their morning porridge. They looked at their empty plates with horror.

Baby bear cried: “Who ate my porridge!”
Pappa bear was clearly anger and growled: “Who ate MY porridge”

Just then Mamma bear shouting from the kitchen: “Oh shut up!!! I have not made the porridge yet. The bloody electricity is off!

    Love the little pencils, you are clearly without a doubt…. SUPERMOM. I’d never think of something as original.

    Glad you enjoyed the joke πŸ™‚

    PS there’s a typo… Pappa bear said: “WhO ate my porridge?”

  7. My kids just had their 100th day of school for the school year and the 2 boys had to bring 100 things, too. Gabe’s had to be a snack, so he took 100 goldfish-type crackers. Joel took 100 nails.
