Survival Skills


Someone once told me that if you can survive an 8-yr. old boy, you can survive anything.


I believe it.


Our son's birthday presents of a season each of Man vs. Wild and Survivorman, coupled with his 10-yr. old "mentor" Justin's earlier exploits and the presence of a 7-yr. old neighbor GIRL, produced the following:

Last Tuesday I grossed out a girl by eating a worm. She was realy grossed out. She almost threw-up. ((P.S. Tell to Jeremy and Justin.))

And I have at least two more boys to live through?

  1. ok, finally i get the msg. i will be arriving un invited, un announced, and un wanted. i will bring dozens of gooey cupcakes with 2 inches of frosting and feed children until they are fully coated with stickyness. then a game will begin: see how much interior of house surface can be reverse frosted, like re gifting. while children are making mom weep, i will measure mama for her own personal tent. i just happen to have 22 yards of 60 inch wide fabric, printed in gigantic flowers in purple, hot pink, bright red and blinding yellow; just the outfit for declaring yourself as a zip code. on the bright side... valentine's day will never be the same for you, or any of us!
