Do you take pictures with your phone? I’ve never had the means to do so until very recently and I was quite pleased with the results. And the convenience.
But really, with the results.
So pleased, in fact, that I insisted on showing my family a slide show of all the great pics I took of Sam’s too-well-to-go-to-school day (also known as his birthday).
I simply downloaded the photos via bluetooth, hooked it up to the TV and pressed play then went into the kitchen to grab myself a drink. And heard laughter.
But not the “oh, this was a great, fun day” laughter more like “Oh, Mom. . . ” laughter. And the giggles just got louder. In my defense, I didn’t realize at first that it’s so easy for your thumb to hit a “reverse camera” button.
So there were quite a few pics of me thinking I was taking a picture of someone else.
Then, the accidental finger over the lens.
Apparently I have a problem.
Maybe I’ll stick with a real camera.
There are some days when the kiddos come home and show what they did in school, that I wish I could’ve been there. To participate and maybe gain the newfound skill that my child is now demonstrating.
Today was one of those days, as my daughter showed me something she did with a pencil and paper in drawing class.
I’m always surprised. I shouldn’t be, but I am every time the kiddos let me know that none of their clothes fit anymore.
It happens so often. Which is why I agreed to pass on that Aeropostale is launching a new store for kiddos age 4-12 called P.S.
They have a site called P.S.Moms for you to sign up to become a mom ambassador. Full disclosure: I am one! They’re launching stores across the U.S. slowly but surely. This weekend, I know they’re launching one grand opening in Boise. Moms that sign up receive $25 PSDollars to spend during the grand opening, as well as another $3 for any friends that you invited. So check it out! We are.
When my son came home and told me he started his home-ec quarter, I was surprised. I had no idea they did that anymore. My daughter missed out because we lived somewhere else during this grade.
“Do you like it?” I asked.
“You’ll see,” he answered.
I think I know the answer now. I’ve had 4 mugs of orange julius (copycat recipe) in the last 3 days. And every single one has been made by my son without me asking (and without him asking, for that matter). As long as you have the ingredients, you can enjoy it too!
2 c. milk
6 ice cubes
6 oz. orange concentrate
2 c. water
If on the fourth batch, you get a little careless in measuring (because you’ve become an expert by now), you can expect a sort of volcanic reaction with the foam and blender lid. The kids will likely volunteer to lick it up.
P.S. Tip from Sam: ”Don’t buy the kind with added calcium. It doesn’t taste as good as regular orange concentrate.”
