Most of my food grade buckets (from a bakery for free or nearly free) are slightly smaller 3-5 gallon buckets slide easily in and out from under the bed this way, since I use them more often. In the 6 gallon buckets I store wheat berries and white rice, sealed in mylar...
Quote: Creamed corn, which goes in cornbread (if you haven't tried it, cornbread is SO much moister and more delicious with corn in it! Sour cream or yoghurt is good, too). Thanks for this tip Smokering. I think I'll give that a try.

If thats what your looking for, good luck... if your OK w/ wierd looking apples w/ a few worm holes its 100% possible and quite easy - there are tons of wild apple trees growing around here that have apples... they just aren't big, blemishlesh apples,...

When the cashier dude asked if I wanted to go get another one I replied "no thanks, I'm not planning to eat it." Vancouver Mommy you take the cake! These are all so funny

And I like the rebranding a lot, too. I...
Hello! Can I join you all? I'm a mom to one six year old boy, and last year I admit I lurked on this thread once or twice and was green with envy . But as of last week I have a "daytime empty nest" myself. SAHDS your post reminded me that my first PTA meeting is on Thursday. I'm kind of nervous because I don't know any of the other parents but I really want to be a volunteer. It sounds like you have done a lot for your kids' school over the years.

I couldn't find one unfortunately. It's not too fussy of a song, more of a chant actually. It's a little bit like the "One Two, buckle my shoe" tune actually, except not quite. I am not very musically inclined. I hope this is somehow helpful information

We used to sing this one: Daddy is home! Daddy is home! Mother, Daddy is home! Time to clap our hands, Time to beat the drum, Time to have some fun, Daddy is home! It's kind of a boisterous song but it captured that excited energy and gave dad a nice warm welcome.
I agree with the PPs about the toys with lots of "crossover appeal" if you will. Books, science stuff, puppets, games/sport gear, etc. would probably all be good. Also just to throw in my two cents on the Stomp Rocket-- my little boy loves those. Melissa & Doug makes a great set of 60 standard unit blocks. They ship free from Amazon too which is nice cause they are fairly heavy. Quote: Like, a playsilk? Because while I adore and value them as...
