I have a confession...

I peeked.

I wish I could say I was sorry, but I'm not.

Hubby caught me peeking and said "It was a violation of her privacy" but really, when your eleven year old pierces her lip with a thumb tack, doesn't she then forfeit her rights to privacy? I am thinking YES.

So I saw peeking out of one of her binders a piece of paper that read...

What I've learned... Age 11

I knew I had to get back to it and read the rest, so once she left the binder in the living room (I didn't even have to go in her room) and went off swimming... I snagged it and read...

I've learned that parents NEVER LEAVE YOU ALONE!
I've learned that parents don't want their kids to be Goth or Emo.
I've learned that boys get into a lot of trouble.
I've learned that lying is a lot harder than I thought.

That last lesson is a tough one for anyone to learn!

So Friday, the kids go to florida with O'ma and it will just me hubby and me for almost 2 months... One of two things will happen either

1 - I will resume blogging with a vengeance. or
2 - My kids are the source of my blogging and i will have NOTHING to write about at all...

I guess we'll just have to wait and see...


  1. All I can say about that is you better start making crap up to keep me entertained with reading material.

  2. Just popping by (nice place ya have here by the way) to let you know that Jane! from Emptying The Nest will be guest blogging tomorrow--and I know you will have missed her as much as I have.
    Her guest post will be here:
    please come and say hello to her-maybe we can get her to come back like blogging. Kind of like bringing a box of wine to the intervention.

  3. What!? How the heck did you manage to arrange to have your kids go to Florida for TWO MONTHS leaving you and hubby alone? I need that recipe. STAT!

  4. OMG Lorrie! Go sit down and be quiet.
    I'm still cringing at the piercing her lip with a thumb tack thing. I was starting to feel bad for you but then I read about the 2 months without kids and I think that that thumb tack was just a little karma prepayment for the vacay.

  5. You, as a parent have every right to peek. I think she wanted you to see it.
