Life as a reformed Zookeeper. Now living a life as a working mother who dabbles in karate, scrapbooking, and Coors Light!

RAP is back in da house....this time it was Erin again. We were on the way back home from southern Indiana for the twins' and nephew's combined birthday party. It went really well, considering the family dynamics....

So now I've more toys than should be allowed by law. It's good, though, because now I have FOUR Mr. Potato Head bodies, with a slew of parts. The kids were playing with them (for about five minutes) this morning, and everyone had a spud to play with! :)

You know that phrase in the Bible about judging that says "do not try to get the speck of dirt out of your neighbor's eye and ignore the plank in your own" (definitely not verbatim here...). Funny how that could so commonly be used. We were talking about the mother of the kids that my sister-in-law used to nanny for. She acts like she's never met us before, but Collin used to hang out with Savannah when he'd come down, and I know that I've told her with whom I belong....Well, MY biological mother had the nerve to say that she wasn't very maternal....I'm so amazed at how she can judge other people's parenting skills when she has none herself?? Kind of like the people who tell you how to raise a child, when they have never had any of their own. Or the Catholic Priest who can give marital advice. If you've never done it yourself, how can you be so bold as to judge others or give them advice?? Anyway, there is my deep thought for the day! ROFL

Keep this thought in mind when dealing with people like that: "Opinions are like assholes. Everyone's got one" ;-)
