I walked in to Jackson via elementary school this week to bring Rece a change of clothes,(accident). on my way to the nurses office I pass 3 or 4 adults I have never seen, All of which greet me by saying, Oh your Angela's Mom, or "that must be Lauren", "Rece tells us all about Jordan", or, I can't wait for Lauren to be in my class, the last one...."How's coda doing? I hear she is in heat!" WOAH, I started to worry.....How much of our personal life to the kids share....with EVERYONE? I took Rece her clothes gathered up Jordan and Lauren and started back for the car, seeing a couple more teachers in the lounge who said, "bye you have such wonderful girls. " I felt like a celebrity mom in my kids elementary. It's just their first year there, and they know everyone. I am so lucky to be blessed with these amazing kids. When parenthood gets overwhelming, It's days like that I try to remember.

Dinner at the boggs house was smelling a little funny on monday. checked the stew, tasted fine, the rolls, a little brown on the bottom, maybe that was it. We went on with dinner,with random interjected comments about the smell from the kids. I had forgotten about it completely when I went to clean the crock pot between the layers of steel and ceramic was my Favorite tupperware lid, non recognizable, melded to the bottom of my sad crock pot, alas it is a total loss. I thought, at least I dont have to clean it, and dumped the entire thing in the trash.....SAD!
