Now I know....

...that a Sharpie or a paper airplane won't go all the way thru my vacuum cleaner. I know it's pointless to ask who tried to suck up a Sharpie in the vacuum, because they will blame it on Not Me, the infamous trouble maker. I also now know that once the thing is clogged, I have to take all the hoses off ( I didn't know the main one even came off, but now I know!) and coax the hair balls and gunk out like I'm milking a cow (not that I've ever actually milked a cow, but I watched).
Another thing I know is that even though kids need to be responsible for their own spaces and have chores to do in the house, it inevitably makes more work for me. ( like having to unclog the vacuum among other things). I guess I have to make an offensive strike on Not Me again....

I was just looking thru my 360 blog and I don't think I ever told you how that whole school bus driver story ended up. For the three of you who were with me on 360, you might remember the bus driver shoved/touched/pulled* my child on the first day of school incident. (*depending on who you talk to). She drove the buses in that district for 12 or 13 years. Eventually she did herself in and was let go (or fired) from driving the school bus. :)

Raising kids is no job for sissies or the faint of heart. Just think of all the new skills we learn because of our kids. You could probably become a milkmaid now! You could teach 7 others of us and we could be Eight Maids aMilking. ROFL!

That's FUNNY...eight maids a milking!

Kids can really be tough to deal with, sometimes they make you feel like a police officer and detective all in one. I guess it's kind of hard to lock up Not Me, huh?

I find your "tagged" answers very interesting, especially the purple issue. teehee. TFS.
