Letter From Braden's Schoolmate

Well, just when I was starting the process of updating my blog, my computer broke AGAIN! This time it is unfixable, and there are no immediate plans to get a new one. I have the iPad, but can't upload pictures, and weirdly, can't see all my friends' blogs either, so my blog-stallings days are on hold too.

A couple of weeks ago I went on a field trip with Braden's class. The kids assigned to me all wrote cute thank you notes to me. But one note in particular I keep reading again and laughing every time. Here it is:

Dear Mrs. Pinney,

Thank you for chaperoning us. You must be a good mom for the way Braden turns out. Did you know Braden brings Legos to school? Braden almost always gets his clip pulled. He's hard to tame. You should check his pocket or backpack before he goes to school. If anyone can tame him, it's you, the mom of Braden.

Daddy Daughter 50's dance

January 28, 2012 Sienna had a father daughter 50's dance at her school. For months I scoured Pinterest looking for an easy way to make a poodle skirt. I was stressing big time! Then about a week before the dance, Sienna asks if she can wear this skirt already in her closet. Best day of my life! It's not technically a poodle skirt, but it swirls like one and I didn't have to do any sewing. And that's good, because it would have produced a lot of tears and maybe a few bad words in my mind.
