Puberty Class

Last Friday the 5th grade boys had their puberty class at school. Being the good mom that I am I asked the boys after school how the class went, what did they think about the video, and if they had any questions. This is how the conversation went.

Charlie has gotten into Legos quite a bit these past few months. He switches between NASCAR and Legos on a daily basis. Consequently there is quite a collection of Lego characters in my house. I swear Lego figures and their accessories are worse than Barbie and her accessories!I spent Mother’s Day putzing around the house picking up Charlie’s toys and putting them back in the toy room.

How to get FREE tennis balls for your Dog

  Max loves tennis balls. It could be defined more as an obsession really.  Max is either chewing on a tennis ball, chasing a tennis ball or carrying a tennis ball around.

I dreamed about tennis balls last night. I'm blaming you. And Max. Still love this, though. :-)more
