I was zipping around the internet on Sunday afternoon and there was an article entitled, "How To Stop Your Kid From Being a Nosepicker."
Now I ask you, why would you WANT to stop your child from picking his nose?
1. It's a time consuming activity that doesn't involve drugs or alcohol.
2. It improves his motor skills, specifically his hand to nostril coordination.
3. It's one less thing you have to do for him.
4. When he's finished playing in his nose, there's nothing to clean up.
5. And last, but certainly not least, it makes for a handy snack.
I still think that Hambooger Helper idea of mine wasn't such a bad idea.
I woke up at 4 o'clock this morning to the sound of sleet hitting against the window, then several loud kabooms of thunder and bright flashes of lightening.
I looked out the window and everything was covered with snow. I went into the living room and looked out the picture window, and it was blowing so hard all I could see was white. I couldn't even see the apple tree which is only about twenty five to thirty feet away from the window. My first thought was, "Ooooo, how beautiful!" My second thought was, "God, don't
let it be blowing like this later when I have to drive to work."
My third thought was, "Full bladder....owie, owie!!"
When I went out at 7 to go to work, it wasn't blowing, and the snow looked so weird. It looked exactly like that fake snow you see in train displays at Christmas.
I kept looking outside this afternoon, watching the swirling snow, and wishing
that I was home taking a nap with Mr. G and the dog.
I like the "snuggly warm in bed together" part. Sigh. I love my job, but I hate never having a weekend off.
I don't know what kind of camera angles they're working with Drew Berrymore in those Cover Girl mascara commercials, but her head and face look HUGE. Huge as in "horse head" huge.
