Hooray for my thread title being picked! I was actually eating a PopTart when I wrote it.

So, what is next week's "theme"? And shouldn't it be starting today? I sent out my monster box of books yesterday. I am super excited to see what next week is! Did many other books go out to MIN's?

I fell for the poptarts title!
I'm going to have to go learn about Holiday Helpers so I can figure out what this is all about - sounds fun!

Oh it's that time of year again where I have to remember to mentally ignore the titles that are obviously out of place here.

Yup, apparently it is completely non-toxic according to poison control. She did giggle at me though.

- 200 sq foot apt and mil wants to get dc a ( insert loud, obnoxious toy)

- dc is three and ready to go snipe hunting

- any tutorials for sewing a hot air balloon?

- my toddler loves to play with fireworks but they don't sell them in October

- has anyone used felted cat fur for soakers?

Is the exorcist an appropriate movie for a five yr old slumber party?

Gag! I screamed, "we never eat out of the compost!" as 2.5 yr old dd was sucking on a mulchy lemon.

Check out the "rules you didn't know until you had a toddler" thread in toddlers.

These made me giggle uncontrollably until DS came over to make sure I was ok.

Love the cat picture!!

DH got a laugh out of this one: "I found a woman's bra in my husband glove compartment and its not mine! Should I ask him about it?" (I actually took off my bra the other day because it was killing me and left it in the car, found it yesterday and had to tease him about it..)
Or for finance board:
"Almost bankrupted for the 3rd time in 5 years, help me review my budget"

LMAO!!!! That's awesome!

This is a tree on fire with love, but it's still scary since most people think love only looks like one thing instead of the whole world. *
