I get it… I really do… but c’mon… ack!!! Your phone is showing!!!
If I sent you outside right now, how many of the plants and insects in your immediate environment could you name? How about your children… could they name more, or less, than you? Do you know, from experience, that if you take an ant from the backyard and put it with a trail of ants from the front yard that usually, not always but usually, the front yard ants will attack and kill that backyard ant in what appears to be a frenzy?!
I was listening to the snippet from Sesame Street (you can check it out below) about children and stressful events. You know, the one that is circulating heavily since Fridays event at Sandy Hook Elementary school. Of course, those familiar and well-meaning characters are advising children who are feeling upset or fearful to go talk to a grownup about it. That can certainly be sound advice… as long as the grownup they choose to turn to is not equally stirred up and off center.
Today the local newscasters were talking about the updated World’s Record book when they started quizzing one another about ‘special’ talents they have, when the sports guy starts in with the Announcer’s Test. Made me laugh and brought back lots of memories.
Hard Boiled Tip #1:
It’s Saturday and I’ve decided to devote Saturday’s to sharing silly, fun, creative and/or intriguing things. (my version of Saturday morning cartoons :-)) So today… it’s a video about how to make a very cool paper gun that really, really works! Well, if shooting paper ninja stars is what you’re going for…
I had fun this weekend baking with the oldest Granddaughter. She’s not a kid anymore so I really appreciate being able to grab a couple of hours of her time and… the good news is she’s a bit of a Pinterest junkie so there are always recipe’s that we want to try. :-)
