Parenting...so close.

"Mom, can I get onto the computer?"

"Have you finished ALL of your homework?"

"Yes, Ma'am."

"Have you cleaned your room?"

"Yes, Ma'am."

"Really cleaned it?"

"Yes, Ma'am."

"Have you taken out the trash?"

"Yes, Ma'am."

"Ok, then, you can get on for a little while."

"Whew! I gotta play Battlefront. I mean, those Clone Troopers aren't gonna kill themselves."

Fabulous.

Thank you for making me laugh every time I come here.

Now I'm off to get a napkin to clean up my tea that I spit out when I laughed.

May I guess who this is/was? Oh, dear. It's a war out there all right! Keep it close, Melissa.
Love,

Whats everyone doing for safety precautions for Halloween? My husband came across an article (http://i-newswire.com/pr220892.html) with some info about background checking neighbors. I thought that may be a little overboard, but it had some other good suggestions for some precautions I haven't thought about. Last year my youngest son came down with a massive fever after Halloween. I almost thought about just taking the kids to our church's fall festival this year instead of door-to-door to prevent that from happening again. I don't know yet. What's your advice? Am I over-reacting or just being a concerned mom?
