A little advice and a big donation

First of all I must say I am totally stoked to be the inspiration for one of Mama Kat's prompts. I've always wondered what it would feel like to be someone's inspiration, and now I know. Thank you so much, Mama Kat. Now on to my writing, I will be choosing numbers 3 and 5. The rules clearly state that you can choose more than one.

#3 Advice to all parents: Take daily life with a grain of salt. Enjoy every minute you can with your kids. If you need a break take it, it will make everyone happy. If you do take a break don't feel bad about it. Everyone needs a break every now and then.

#5 If I had $5,000 to donate I would give it to our school. Not directly to the school, but I would choose a class that is wanting to go someplace special for a field trip. Or give it to a teacher who wants to do an awesome project in class. Or I would give it to the library so they could buy some super cool current books. Or I would donate it to our janitors for a meal out at a steak house, they all do a wonderful job at our school and have a thankless job.

The Prompts:

1.) Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page and share two “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
(inspired by Heather)

2.) What do you aspire to be?
(Inspired by The White House)

3.)Share a piece of unsolicited parenting advice...only I'm soliciting it.

4.)Tell us about your long have you been blogging, when did you start, what were/are your goals for your blog, etc.
(inspired by Corn)

5.)If you had 5000 dollars to give away or donate to a charity...explain what you would do with it and why.
(inspired by Hallie's letter)

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh I love what U would do with $5k!!!!! That is a WONDERFUL idea!!!!! Me, sadly....I would probably be a little selfish and actually get braces for myself...i have the UGLIEST teeth and my folks couldn't afford them when I was growing up...and now I am putting Adam thru them so he doesn't end up looking like me...(lol)....soooooooooo yeah...I'd have to be selfish for once in my life and get attention to any of my blog posts...LOL...U will never see me smile with teeth showing!! LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):)
