Two Sundays ago they made an announcement at church that one of my kids teachers from our church school was celebrating twenty five years in the teaching service.I remember the first time I met her because most of my kids had her as a teacher.
Back in the day all the teachers would come to visit you before school started at your home.It wasn’t too hard on them because we were a very little church school and most of the kids had siblings there so they could kill more than one bird with a stone.(I love that saying)
This particular visit was exciting for me because Miss Bach who is now the one celebrating twenty five years was bringing a new teacher with her.I cleaned and cleaned and the house was spotless.I made cookies and I gave the kids a talking to be on their best behavior.
After we got our little meeting over and all of the niceties were finished the new teacher asked if she could use the restroom and I showed her where it was.She came out and off they went.I was glad that they left because I had to use the facilities myself.I walked in the bathroom and there hanging all over the wall by the toilet were about twenty Kotex mini pads.I could have died right there and I really thought now would be the time to homeschool my kids even though I never graduated myself.Good gracious did the new teacher stay in there so long because she couldn’t find the place to put her dime?I don’t know.
That’s how my boy was back then.Quiet but deadly,and a lot of stuff with bathrooms.Another time I was in the bathroom and the phone rang.I heard Jared answer it.I hollered out asking who it was and he told me that it was the Sears catalog store.Before I could say anything else he was telling them no my mom can’t come to the phone because she is going poop.
His Dad picked up that order and I started ordering from Penney’s.
I now think that history does repeat it self.One day Brooke was telling me about something that Collin did and I laughed.I am always laughing at these kids.I mean anybody that reads this blog knows who the new poop bandit is in the family and it ain’t Landyn.I know he will grow up and deny deny deny because his Uncle Jared does but that’s alright.My first little dude is thirty and I adore him.He is a work in progress.God has always taken care of him and I know He is taking care of Collin.I have one knee replaced because of it and by the looks of things before he gets to be thirty I’ll be getting the other one done too.That’s my job I guess The Praying For Safety Nana.Blessings everyone.
