untitled

Syrup is on the shirt, dripping off the table, sticking to the floor.
"I was just having a snack, Mom."

Week-old, old-school metal lunchbox is crunched beyond usability.
"I was trying to make it fit, Mom."

Dog is off and running, leash-free, through the neighborhood.
"I didn't mean to, Mom."

Possible titles for this post:
  • 7-year-old for sale
  • Lovable deep down
  • Where is the Margarita Fairy when you need her?
Got any other suggestions?

Ohhhh, I'm going with the Margarita Fairy on this one, although you know that "lovable deep down" is probably the best and the truest title. It's just been a looooong day. :)

Margarita Fairy. Definitely.

Hope tomorrow is a better day!

Nah...not alcohol. Chocolate is better--no hangover.

As the mother of an almost 7 year old, with whom I've had a WONDERFUL summer, but is now always bored and getting into mischief and who, along with her mother, wants desperately for school to begin, I vote for 7 year old for sale. Problem is, at this time of year, there is a surplus of supply and a paucity of demand, so you may not find a buyer...!

My title suggestions:

"This, too, shall pass."

"You'll miss this one day. No, really."

Margarita Fairy is pretty darn good though!

Thanks for the belly laugh. Sorry if my laugh was the cause of several headaches for you though! If you ever discover the Margarita Fairy please send her my way.
