Mama Kat's Workshop: Have you ever

It's been too long since I've played along with Mama Kat and today's prompts made me chuckle.

Have you ever wanted to punch someone? Ummm more than once. Most recently at the 5K when the mother of a fellow t-ball player got in my face about not knowing practice was cancelled on Friday. Here's an idea--provide the coach with a working email address and you'll likely be informed.

Have you ever wanted someone to stop talking? I've got myself thinking this during many conversations I have over the course of the day. In fact, I often zone out and hope the speaker will realize that I'm not longer listening.

Have you ever eaten the last....piece of gum....bit of Halloween candy...donut and then told the kids that daddy did it? Don't judge. Sometime you just need to eat the six year old's Reese's cup because you know you will appreciate it more than he will.

Have you ever questioned someones education? Sometimes it boggles my mind that most of the staff in my elementary school has significantly more formal education than I do. This brings to mind the question what happened to common sense?

Have you ever eaten an avocado? It surprises me how many people haven't. In fact, at Walmart one time the cashier asked me what I was going to make with the AV-E-ODD-0s. Seriously. That really happened.

Have you ever regretted buying amusement park tickets? I'm taking all three kiddos to Hershey park in late June and I'm already having anxiety about it. The are all different heights and we'll be going with two other families and four additional kids. What in the world was I smoking when I agreed to this?

Have you ever wished for rain so you could get out of something? Guilty. I'm wishing for rain right now so I don't have to take my brood to t-ball practice.

Have you ever been asked to sign a 1st grader's yearbook? Apparently it's cool to get the lunch ladies to sign your year book when you're in elementary school. My standard catch your veggies!

Of course I have eaten an avocado. Of course I also once lived in an apartment with green shag carpet and avocado colored appliances too.

Great post! first graders are so cute! everything is new and exciting for them, can't believe they have yearbooks in elementary though - the expenses just keep adding up.

I love your "tag line" for the yearbooks!!! : )

And I have never eaten an AVE-EE-COD-OH. Nor will I.

I have that same concern when I go to Hershey Park. I'm sure you'll have fun anyway. Maybe more gray hair too! LOL.

Fun post.
