Friday Fragments

Friday Fragments?


I still have not picked out costumes for the boys.

No dinero = no store bought costumes

I was thinking Bob the Builder (already have the tool set, hard hat, etc.)


black eyed peas (paint black eye, P on white T-shirt).



Yesterday, I checked on the boys about an hour after I put them down for their naps.  

Frick was still awake.

Frack was naked and still awake.  

It took me a moment to figure this out.  Hiding my smile, I asked him why he was naked.

“I pee.”

Smile faded.

“You peed?”

“Uh huh.”


“Ober der!” (as he points to the corner of the room)




I received this email from a student’s parent:

(printed with permission, of course!)

*names have been changed, again.


I was helping Fred* play on the computer today –  A picture of Dora came up and he said “Dora Saves the Ice Princess”.

That is what it said under the picture.  

I said “How did you know it said that?”

 He said “Because I am smart”.

 I said “Yes you are.  Who made you smart?”  

He always says “Jesus” when we ask him this.

 Today he says

“Mrs. (insert my last name here)!!


That, my friends, is the very reason I teach.




Go visit Mrs. 4444 at Half-Past Kissin’ Time for more

    I think we need a mommy retreat! I don’t know the details but it involves very little responsibilities. Costumes.. I have a ninja, spiderman, doctor, and karate costume and parts of a pirate (vest, hook, and hand thing) various princess and fairy type things though I don’t suppose you’d be interested in those. Why do I have boy costumes you might ask? For when we have boy friends come play. You’re welcome to use any of those. Good seeing you today!

    Have you ever seen cousin J’s train conductor dress up outfit? There’s a hat and a bib overall thing and a red bandanna — it’s cute. You’re welcome to it. I’ll bring it this weekend.

    Can’t wait to see you guys!

    We did Bob the Builder. It was so easy and cheap! 🙂 My favorite of Chandler’s costumes so far. We went to Kid 2 Kid and found a costume for Chandler for $10. Can’t beat that!

    Hope you have a great day “off”!!!!

    Good luck with the costumes, it sounds like you’re getting some great ideas so far! I still haven’t figured out what my kids will wear either.

    That email is adorable! Thank so much for sharing, it definitely brought a smile!

    Have a great weekend!

    I haven’t a clue what toddler is going to be for Halloween. I keep thinking, ‘she doesn’t even know what Halloween is, do we need to get her something?’ LOL

    Hilarious pee story!

    When I was inpatient with my twins (for 10 weeks), one of the nurses always called them frick and frack. Love it. Sorry about that pee in the corner though. 🙂
