Today was a rough behavior day at our house. It was the kind of day when a certain five-year-old boy lost one privilege after another until he was basically stripped of every Lego, battery operated device, and toy he had. All he had access to was paper, crayons, and his books.
When I picked up Luke from school on Friday his teacher said, “Well, we got our school pictures back today. They’re in Luke’s backpack. All I can say is wow, and can I please have one. It REALLY captures him.”
There are plenty of times that I take special care to use a shampoo that is specific for my hair type and, ahem, color. In fact, I almost always have separate “Mommy shampoo and conditioner” in the shower that no one else is allowed to touch.
Our house was hit with a plague this week in the form of a virus. My focus has mainly been on keeping Luke’s fever down, forcing fluids, and having meals delivered to our house.
You’ll see what we mean, especially if you watch all four videos in the series.
I received an email from Luke’s teacher last week stating that he was overheard at circle time asking a couple of little girls to marry him because, according to him, he was going to be having a baby soon.
Well, I’m sharing the whole awkward story in my debut today In The Powder Room.
So come on over, and while you’re there you can read more about the Amazon best selling book, “You Have Lipstick On Your Teeth” And Other Things You’ll Only Hear From Your Friends In The Powder Room.
PS: Don’t forget that I’ll be at the Parnell Memorial Library this Saturday, September 7th to speak and sign copies of the book. I can’t wait to see you there!! Click HERE for the details.
Ok as promised several times, here is a video from Luke’s hip-hop class. He is on the far left with a blue and green striped shirt and khaki shorts. His freestyle segment is in the last fifteen seconds of the video. Unfortunately, the only audio is lobby noise. Feel free to mute the video and sing “Funky Cold Medina.” I know you know all the words. Also, you may want to enlarge your screen.
Luke could sense my excitement one day last week as I held my copy of “You Have Lipstick On Your Teeth.”
