Today Was An Unexpected “Take Your Daughter To Work Day”

And not by choice! This morning I was shocked to hear my little one had a half day of school. Usually when she has half days, I makes plans with her sitter or my husband. But being that my husband's unit was deployed to help with the disaster that Hurricane Sandy left behind, I was left to my own devices.

My favorite mom saying won!

I couldn't believe when I received the email fromLeTop.  It said, "Congratulations on your recent win on your favorite mom sayings"  I was so excited! It was a secret Twitter - only contest and I decided to enter just for the fun of it.  I sent them what I usually say to my family.  I had no idea I would win although I was hoping to. I was so glad I entered. It all started several years ago when my son couldn't find something in the refrigerator.  I forgot what it was but I know it was … [Read more...]
