Proud Mommy Moments, CTR

In my church, we teach the kids three very important, simple and effective letters.  CTR.  They stand for Choose the Right.  From the time they are 4, they are learning all about CTR.  Of course, we as parents are reinforcing those lessons in the home.

Recently, we have been having a lot of problems with our neighbor children.  Drama has ensued.  It has escalated since Spring Break started.  At one point, I was ready to kick the parents' door in and then kick something else.  I was done.  Luckily, my dinner was ready, and I decided I wasn't going to let their rotten children ruin my holiday.  I let it be.  I enjoyed my holiday with family.  It was nice.  Besides, I am not good with confrontations or the spoken word.

I have been using google to aide me in Draw come I can google just about anything and see scantily clad women?

How come I can smell my perfume and I am not dressed yet?

I am sure I could come up with much more...but I have a dentist appointment.  I hate going to the dentist.  Don't you?
