Apparently

Apparently, tap water gotten free at home and put into a water bottle doesn't taste nearly as good as the water bottles you buy at school for $1...but you fill your bottle at home anyway because your mom is too cheap let you pay a dollar for WATER.

Apparently, powdered milk ($5 for a huge box) used in recipes tastes just as good as regular milk...as long as your children don't know.

Apparently, it doesn't hurt as much to spend your parents' money as it does to spend your own...and then it's excruciating.

Apparently, it's very important to do your own work on the school project until you realize you are waaaaaaaay behind and mom is right there...and has nothing to do.

Apparently, if your parents must sit in a car and wait on you, it's not nearly as long a wait as if you have to sit and wait on your parents...that's just torture and abuse.

Apparently, it's imperative that you have a cell phone at school even though the teachers will give you detention if they see it or hear it. Therefore, you put it in your locker before school and it stays there until after school when you promptly enter the bus...that brings you straight home.

Apparently, little boys sometimes refuse to come home from school because they want to play longer, forcing daddy to come home empty-handed...and pouty.

Apparently, naps required at preschool are cruel and unnecessary...even though you're consistently the first one to fall asleep.

And apparently, God is listening even when you're sure He's not...especially when you're sure He's not.

This is too funny. I love your blog - it makes me laugh and helps me know I am not the only one trying to bumble through this parenting thing :)
