"Abandoned America"

Tonight we cuddled up in bed and turned on a documentary. It's just something we do for fun. Our pick "Abandoned America". It sounds safe. A little history. A little questioning. A little learning. A little unexpected questioning after this... "The town was made up of 90% men, and half of the women were PROSTITUTES." Yes, they emphasized prostitutes. Then they talked about them three more times emphasizing the word. Who does that? You can use the word prostitute in a sentence without yelling it. Any Ways... Charles sits up and says "What's a prostitute?" I was going to tell him in my own special way, but right before I did, I laughed and said "Ask your daddy." Ha I can wait to hear what he tells them. The best part so far has been William who instantly called me on it and said "I bet you don't know what it is?" to him I replied "Your right, but your daddy is extra smart and he can tell you." They are now sleeping on daddy's side of the bed, waiting for him to come home and tell them what a prostitute is.

A Mom Thing

Imagine a world where you are a mom. Its been a long day. It's 10 pm, and you not only go to bed, but fall asleep. Now imagine it's, I don't know, 10:38 pm, you're asleep, in the dark, snoring. All of a sudden you hear "mom, Mom, MOm, MOM!" You jump out of bed and the rest of the story goes "I need printer paper." So now, lets say you find the paper, that was next to the printer, you throw yourself back into bed and by some miracle fall back asleep. Then it's 10:55 pm and you hear "mom, Mom, MOm, MOM!" You jump out of bed to hear "I need a stapler." Now you're feeling a little irritated. You look at the clock, process the family internet is set to go off in five minutes, so instead of going back to bed, you go on facebook, because you know what's coming next... "mom, Mom, MOm, MOM! Can I use your computer?"

The Printer is My Friend

16 year old: Mom something is wrong with the printer. My computer said it is out of something.
Me: Did you check the paper?
16 year old: Its not the paper.
Me: Is it the ink levels?
16 year old: It's not the ink levels. Its something else.
Me: Did you check the ink levels.
16 year old: It's not the ink levels.
Me: The last time I used the printer it was running low on black ink. Try to print again and select the option that mixes colored ink for black.
16 year old: It's not the ink levels and besides you can do what you just said, its not possible, you don't know what your talking about.
Me: Okay, I hear you are telling me the printer is out of something. It is not ink or paper.
16 year old: That's what I said.
Me: Then what is it out of.
16 year old: I don't know, that's why I told you.
Me: It's a simple home printer. It can either be out of ink or paper, there are no other options. I think you should go upstairs and look at the printer.
16 year old: You are not getting it. The printer us out of something else.
Me: What! Please tell me what it's out of. No, don't, just email me what you want to print and I will do it for you.
16 year old: It won't work.
Me: Just email it to me. (Yes, I did yell that)
... I go upstairs to print the papers off my computer only to find them sitting on the printer already printed...
