remembrance day

The kids get really excited about holidays.  I'm glad school is willing to remind them so they'll remind me.  So WonderGirl was kind enough to make this for me 11-11 today:

Beautiful, no?

But then as we were going out the door, the usual chaos got even more chaotic and some missing snowboots drove us all over the edge.  (ugh.  just the fact that they were needed was enough to send me to the crazy bin).  After I dropped everyone off, I wished there was some way to let WG know how much she was loved, no matter where she'd left both her boots AND her gym shoes.  I'd hate all that squawking to ruin her day, and I wouldn't see her until dinner time.  Providence shined on me when I saw her homework folder sitting on the counter...  so I I found a card, wrote her a few jokes and told her how much I love her, slipped it inside and dropped it off with the secretary at her school.

Tender mercies.

You'd make a great promotional director - starting the great story and then leaving us hanging about the ending. (You have to read the book to find out the end...)
How did it go?!?!

Um, you definitely know how to rock the parenting thing. But I agree with Jane, what happened???

HEAR YE. I need to document the fact that I ran 3 miles and didn't feel like death.  So just to make sure it wasn't a fluke, I did...
