Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

So. What happened was...

It's been crazy around here.  I'm a bit (or a lot) of a procrastinator.  There are things I should have taken care of this week (Easter baskets and stuff) that I put off to the end of the week.  I figured Thursday morning would be a good time to get all the candy and put the baskets together.  The less time it's in the house to tempt me, the better.

Thursday morning I got a call at 6:53 am.  I only know that because hearing my cell ring before 7am kinda freaked me out.  I mostly use my cell for long distance so that's the number my family and out-of-state Friends have or me.  I just knew it was going to be bad news.  Who else calls that early?  The School.  That's who.  A couple weeks ago I was asked if I was interested in Substituting at my daughters pre-school.  Of course I said yes.  I filled out all the mandatory paperwork for background checks and (surprisingly) I'm in the clear. (that's a joke)  Anyway, one of the teacher's was ill and they needed me to work.  "Great.  I can still get my shopping done on  Friday." NOPE.  They needed me on Friday too.  Since morning is the only time I am without child... I'm kinda hosed.  But... I have a plan.  I also now have more money.  Let's see if I can pull this off.

On a side note:  Handsome's school did a "Walk for a Cause" to raise money or Relay for Life.  They set up the track with bounces, face painter, balloon guy, and food.  The kids got to walk the track in a two hour even and all the money raised will support the PTA's Relay for Life Team.  It's an awesome idea and this was the First Annual.  Did I mention the Balloon Guy?

He was AWESOME.  Every kid got a bracelet.  Handsome wanted an Alien and the kid behind him got a birthday cake.
