Amber Alert

Mommy Test

I was out walking with my then 4 year old daughter. She picked up something off the ground and started to put it in her mouth. I took the item away from her and asked her not to do that. "Why?" my daughter asked.

"Because it's been on the ground, you don't know where it's been, it's dirty and probably has germs," I replied.

At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked,
"Mommy, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart."

I was thinking quickly and said. "All moms know this stuff. It's on the mommy test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a mommy."

We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, as she was evidently pondering this new information.

"Oh...I get it!" she beamed, "So if you don't pass the test you have to be the daddy." "Exactly," I replied back with a big smile on my face.

Make Me Laugh Monday - Getting Into Shape

I am going to get into shape in no time! I thought you would like to try the program that I am on to "tone-up." I really like it.

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface where you have plenty of room at each side. While holding a 5-lb potato sack in each hand extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold your arms out as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute and then relax. Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.

After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato sacks. Then, move up to 50-lb potato sacks and eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (I'm at this level now.)

After you feel confident at that level, put one potato in each sack.
