All the back to school sales have began and if you are like me, you are starting to buy a crayon here and a glue stick there to get your child ready for school. I remember when I went to school a few decades ago (sigh) our supply list consisted of a pencil, an eraser, a ruler and a few exercise books. Fast forward, my child supply list is a little longer than that, from 40 pencils to a tub of wipes. But here is my dilemma. We have the option of writing a $30 check or buying the supplies myself. Should I write the check or should I go shopping? I have decided to go shopping! I think my total will come under $30, we will see. Happy shopping!
So baby boy starts coughing
and I had seen him with a puzzle piece in his hand
I ask him,
what is in your mouth?
and he is crying…
did you swallow something?
Panic sets in
I must be the worst mother in the whole world
Baby boy is crying uncontrollably
and I thought I was a combat medic!
At least he is still breathing since he is crying
he starts throwing up
and the penny comes out of his throat
never been so happy to see a penny
I let him know that I put the penny in his piggy bank
baby boy asks:
did you clean it?
discover that my child is not the first
nor the last to swallow a penny
Thank you God for taking care of the little boy!
The past week has been interesting, I have been running into rude and selfish drivers, parking so close to me that I cannot enter my car using the driver’s door or deciding to park on our driveway without our permission and taking off. How rude! If you are reading this, next time I am calling the police, I now have the number to call.
In the world of couponing, Bi Lo is slowly but surely becoming my grocery store of choice. First of all, there is a Bi Lo in every corner, some of their price locks are awesome (like the $1 Bounty napkins – which have ranged from free to .50 cents with coupons) to many BoGo deals. Bi Lo released their new coupon policy that really works for me.
July has been a race free month for me, apart from volunteering at the Triathlon, it has been a slow month, but come August, I have 4 races back to back. Well, I hope you are having a great summer. I love not having any assignments!
