What Back-to-School Resolutions Do You Have As A Mom?

Finley, the 1st grader, brought home the first homework yesterday.

She has to turn in homework every Friday by 8am, and if she doesn't she gets sent to study hall for the day.  Yikes!  So we decided that homework time would be Monday through Thursday at 4pm.  She has to sit down and do the homework before she gets the Wii privileges or before softball practice.  Homework at 4 is one of our resolutions.

I read about one mom setting the "no electronics after 8pm" resolution.  Do you have any?

Freshman Are Happiest At These Colleges

I remember my freshman year of college being pretty stressful.  It was leaving home for the first time, being denied the chance to get into the sorority that my mom had been part of, gaining what turned out to be the freshman forty instead of the freshman fifteen, and generally feeling out of place and not knowing where to fit in.  But other than those things, my first year of college at the University of Nebraska was great!

I ran across a list today of 50 colleges and Universities with happy freshman.  Did Boise State make the list?

I’m So Happy Football Is Back!

This is my favorite time of year, because the weather is awesome, it's my birthday month (we girls claim the whole month), and football has returned.  Yay!

I grew up in Nebraska and over there you just have to love football.  The Huskers are part of the culture, and so is high school football.  My dad and I watched games together when I was a kid, and so my knowledge of holding penalties and the nickel package dates back to watching him talk to the TV.

I've become a Boise State Bronco fan now too, and I love the new uniforms with the shiny new facemasks.  Do you?  Oh, and which uniforms will the Broncos wear this weekend against Colorado State?

What If The Person You’re Dating Is A Bad Kisser?

Come on can of worms, open up.

It's a conversation that's hard to have, right?  "Hey hottie, I like you and all, but the kissing part isn't happening for me."  Not something we want to say, or hear!

I just read that since kissing is a "learned behavior," we can teach an old dog new tricks.  Kissing takes practice, and with a little work, it can get better.  Hmm!

3D Movies Aren’t For Everyone

If 66 percent of the population approves of something, that's pretty good, right?

Well, two out of three of my kids loved the 3D movie we went to over the weekend, and that third kid was having none of it.

Does The Tooth Fairy Come If You Literally Lose The Tooth?

 

If you have a 6-year old like I do, chances are the tooth fairy makes regular trips to your house.  Where does the he/she get all that money? The tooth fairy leaves on average, $3.70 per tooth. Sounds cheap, but these kids have more than one tooth, ya know?

Finley lost another tooth last night on the way to softball practice, and that led to an unexpected meltdown.  Here's why.
