I just learned something fascinating that my son gleaned from his basketball coach. This from the kid who’s room is littered knee deep with packages and wrappers and Lord knows what. They essentially invented Halloween just for him. Well guess what he was good enough to share: Did you know it’s a good idea to have a big healthy breakfast, a number of small meals thereafter, consume fruits and vegetables, exercise and stretch? Wife deaf? Why do we even bother speaking to our children? I suppose if you’re a stay-at-home mom it’s a good way to exercise ye old pipes, and stay in touch with the peeps, but it’s just a teeny weenie bit maddening. Why is it that they can’t hear it from you? I know I should just be happy that he got the message but it makes me so mad all I want to do is eat a bar of chocolate, even if it is from Halloween, circa 2009.
