Apple Jacks or Captain Crunch with Crunch Berries
Neither. Rice Krispies or Cheerios.
Band or Choir
Both at one time or another. Band in 6th grade. I played the clarinet. Choir in 8th and 9th grade.
Yes. I bought mine at a local jeweler called Evans. It was antique gold with an aquamarine stone. There was a cross in the stone. On the side was a basketball with my number, #25 and Center written on it.
Ducks or Battleships
I’ve probably played with every bathtub toy imaginable. I’m thinking at one time or another I’ve played with both.
Babysitting. Lots of babysitting. Cleaning the church. Keeping score at Little League baseball games. Cleaning my aunts and grandmas houses. And I was a sandwich artist, at Subway.
Roxie Hatten, my second grade teacher, Mary Webb, my general and advanced biology teacher, and Mike Cain, my chemistry teacher. Wonderful ladies!
Go Back and Do Over
Ummm….I wouldn’t date in high school. Absolutely not!
Not required and not interested.
I liked indoor recess fine. I preferred outdoor recess though.
Jacks or Jump Rope
Never managed the jacks. Jump rope it is.
Kickball or Dodgeball
Strawberry Shortcake, metal lunchbox, with a matching thermos.
Believe it or not, yes. I was a towns person and an Indian in The Music Man. What fun!
Number of School Districts
Stone County School District only. For twelve years.
Orange or Apple
The seesaw was a blast. And swings. NOT the monkey bars. I never could figure out how to do that…
Quiz Team or Debate
Quiz team. But I wasn’t that great.
Kickball, football, basketball, putting together plays, playing house, chatting with friends….
Florida on several occasions. With my family a few times and the choir once.
Well, I don’t consider it unfulfilled now…just changed. But I wanted to be a Child Psychologist growing up. I had big dreams of owning a clinic that was non-profit for kids. It would have music therapy and art therapy classes. Now, I have no desire for such a thing…although it sounds nice.
These guys. They rock. Most of them are high school buddies. Or even jr. high or elementary school buddies. I am fortunate!
Walk or Bus
Ah. But my mother was a teacher. So I rode with her. I had my own truck in high school though. Lucky me!
X Country or Basketball
Basketball but I ran 5K’s as well. Our school didn’t have a track team or I would have run cross country.
My favorite years were 8th and 12th. It’s always great being the senior.
My Spanish class was the pits. And I ended up missing health in 9th grade, and had to take it in 12th grade, with all the freshmen. Not cool.
If you wanna play along, be sure to add you link to Sallie’s Mr. Linky.
On Friday, my baby will be seven months old. We’ve had Rebekah hanging out with us for more than half a year. It seems she just came into our lives yet its hard to remember what life was like before her arrival…is that cliche enough for you?
She’s a very laid back baby. I must admit, that she’s been too easy. Sleeping all night. Being happy and content most of the time. It makes me wonder what I’ve got in store for me . She’s not been perfect though. She doesn’t want much to do with solid food. Well, she likes to spew it across the high chair…but not eat it. She’s a chunk. She doesn’t look like a kid that doesn’t like to eat. Well, solid food anyway. She loves her milk.
And she’s been sick more than my other two ever were. She’s not been sick a lot really. Just more than I’m used to. We are hoping she’s not asthmatic, but she’s had breathing trouble on two different occasions. The nebulizer does bring out the worst in her. And me. We are a cranky pair when we have to use that horrid contraption.
But mostly she’s such a happy baby. She smiles at everyone. Her big blue eyes sparkle. She loves to be held, talked to. She loves for her big sister and brother to play with her. The adore her. Either one is willing to shake a rattle with her for an hour without tiring.
And she’s amusing. Okay, not really amusing. Just freaking hilarious! She is Queen Raspberry Blower. She blows raspberries forever. And she tries to sing. Its a rather brilliant combination of grunts, growls and coos. But the funniest thing, is when she tries to crawl and suck her thumb. It doesn’t work, but that doesn’t keep her from trying, over and over and over again. I think she would have mastered crawling by now if she didn’t have to have the thumb in her mouth. It is a beautiful thing to watch. If you love laughing until you can’t breathe…
Anyway, that’s my girl. How about those eyes? Aren’t they amazing?
Has it really been almost a month since I’ve posted? Wow!
I guess that’s what the end of the school year will do. It’s funny really. About a year ago is when I stopped blogging religiously. I did blog about five or six times a week until that point. I keep resolving to be a better blogger, but stuff keeps happening. Morning sickness, work, having a baby, just being busy!! Busy, busy, busy!
I did revive a bit last summer, while I was on summer break, so maybe that will happen again this year.
Anyway, I’ve been busy with the last days of school (kids finished yesterday) and all the things moms of three kids get busy with. Like laundry. I am making a new resolution to blog more frequently. I’ll probably break it…but here’s hoping!
So, what have you been up to?
