a word to the wise...

uh, ok...to michael...i made this little sign as a reminder to my son b/c he rarely listens to me and always ends up getting upset when things don't work out his way. i'm not a negative nancy to him, but i just try to remind him that if he lollygags or does/doesn't do certain things, he won't get to do other things that he really wants to do (or things he wants to do but doesn't realize he wants to do yet--does that make sense?)
anywho, i wish i had a sign like this when i was a kid b/c it sure as heck rings true to me, even now! i was going to make it read, 'live and learn or just listen to you mother.' but i went with this instead.

tomorrow is soccer game #2. i forgot to mention that Coach Mike has a winning record! they won their first game 5-1. the kids had a great time and all played very well. mich had a goal and was able to get his 'goal patch' for his shorts to go with the two practice patches he already has.
have a great friday!

i hope to be back tomorrow with some etsy items! i say that, but we'll see how it all goes.
