Back To School Funnies

I taught kindergarten for three years before having Captain Fussybuckets and becoming a stay-at-home mom, then a houseparent at a children's home, then a stay-at-home mom again.  School was always filled with mixed emotions.  The first day of school was exciting, scary, exhausting and inspiring all at the same time.  The end of the year was full of relief, stress, and bittersweet sadness!  All day today I've seen my friends post pictures of their kids going back to school and I'll admit, I'm a bit emotional!  It's so sweet to see all of these kids growing [...]

“Take A Bite And I’ll Tell You.”

I'm so glad that my husband is the father of my children.  He plays with our boys like he is a boy himself.  He teaches them good things and is a great Christian role model for them.  But the purpose of this post is not to gush about how awesome my husband is, but yet, the brilliance of one of his famous phrases that he has coined..

"Take a bite and I'll tell you."

Hubby started using this phrase when Captain Fussybuckets began a) asking billions of questions and b) [...]
