I have the complete manuscript now with all of the edits included. It’s nerve racking going through every word and every line but I don’t want to risk missing something important. So when I’m done I’ll probably
read it another dozen times or so!
This morning my son had on grey, fuzzy ear warmers (his sisters) and he thought he was going to wear them to school. Not a chance. So we had the
conversation AGAIN. I also want everyone to know that this kid has a huge pile of hats to choose from. He has everything from Cars to Spiderman. My uncle Randy said that any GOOD mom would buy their kid a Packer hat. I just might have to do that.
When my daughter was two she began having bad dreams about a man in a suit with a black hat on asking her to go with him, to take his hand. The
house we lived in at the time was in Garnivello Iowa and I truly believe the house was haunted. Someday I will tell you about it.
After we moved those dreams stopped but others appeared. She is now eight and the dreams are becoming more vivid and realistic. When we were
getting certified to do foster care we learned a trick that works sometimes. We hung a dream catcher on her bed. Each night before bed she touches her heart
and then the dream catcher, eight times, one time for each year she has been on this planet. The dream catcher is supposed to “catch” the bad dreams in its
web. She thinks it’s broke because of the dreams she has been having lately. I even rearranged her room, thinking a change of environment might help but it
This morning at 3:00am she woke me up and she was terrified.“Mom, when I went to bed I had socks on but now they’re gone, someone took my socks!” Trying to keep a straight face I explained that she probably took them off in her sleep and sure enough they were under the sheets in her bed. Thankfully it wasn’t a bad dream but to be honest I was pretty scared…..what if her socks really were missing?
My son only has bad dreams about me. A couple months ago he woke me up in the night to tell me that he dreamed that our house was on fire and everyone made it out alive except for me. He said I died walking through the flames because I don’t allow running in the house!
British Phrase – Bob’s your uncle
I love this one! Brit’s use this phrase in place of saying “and that’s it.” So for example someone might say: I took the kids to school, went to the grocery store, stopped at the bank and Bob’s your uncle. Or if you were making a pizza you might say: you take the pizza off the cardboard, put it in the oven and Bob’s your uncle. Now that’s funny.
Have a great day passengers, and Bob's your uncle!
(I just had too!)
