Mother Nature

Morning Pooka Family!  Approximately 1 month ago I wrote my blog on Spring!  I was excited that we made it through the winter, I was looking forward to planting some flowers, seeing the groundhog in my backyard, and just welcoming the warm weather.  Well today family, April 16, 2014 I stepped outside of my house and saw snow and ice on my car window shield!  WTH!!!  Did I just step back in time?  IT IS FREEZING OUTSIDE!!  I could do nothing but laugh at the marvels of Mother Nature.  I guess we all know who's in control!  Stay warm family!!

Give me a reason.

The boys and I were eating dinner the other day and my oldest was telling me how someone in his class got caught with their cell phone on. The student explained to the teacher that he was texting a message to another classmate about homework. Of course both students got in trouble for having their phones on. I laughed and asked" How come they just didn't pass a note?" Both of my kids looked at me like I was crazy. " Pass a note?" "Yeah" I said, write the message on a piece of paper and then pass it to the person, without the teacher knowing. " Why would they do that?" asked my youngest, "they should just use the phone like they did." " Well they are not supposed to do that in class," " But you can pass notes in class?" Me " No your not supposed to do that either, it just seems easier." My kids didn't think so. "Ma those were the old days, nobody passes notes around." said my oldest. Fine I said, "Another reason not to get you a phone." Lol, just like the good ole' days parent, I will turn it around on you in a second!
