Things I Learned


Last week I learned a few new things that I thought I would share with you. See you learn something new everyday!

  • A 10 year old can plan an outing to the movies with a friend in one phone call. It takes ten phone calls for a 17 year old to plan an outing to the movies with a friend and then the day of the movie the friend calls and cancels and the 17 year old ends up going to the movies with the 10 year olds!
  • When hot glue from a glue gun hits your skin it burns, really bad! I finally broke down and used a hot glue gun for the first time. I guess my 10 year old felt bad, even though she was laughing really hard, that I had burned three of my fingers so she showed me how to use the dang blasted thing. Now that I know how to use it I love it! 
  • A 38 year old mom attempting to show off teach her children how to Pop-a-Wheelie on a kids bike will always end up on her butt. The second attempt will leave her flat on her back with children laughing at her!
  • A 38 year old mom should not attempt to jump hurdles. Again, the first attempt will leave her on her butt and the second attempt will leave her flat on her back with children laughing at her!
  • A 38 year old mom does not heal as quick as she did just a few short years ago! A few landings on her butt and back will feel like she jumped off a building the next day!

    • I am fine just a few bruises here and there nothing out of the ordinary!
      OK, I am sooo glad to know that I am not the only one who tries to wipe up the dripping glue!

  3. I fall, quite often- I hate it when I do it in front of anyone, let alone the kids…. I think it’s cool that you at least tried to pop a wheelie and jump a hurdle! Not many 38 year old mom’s would be that cool!

  4. For the record I managed to pop a wheelie and ride it for about 10 feet before I busted my A$$!
    As for jumping hurdles I never could do those stupid things! I don’t know why I thought I could do it know except that I was told I COULDN’T do it. They should know better than to tel me I can’t do something!

    I’ve never tried to pop a wheelie in my life! I’m impressed that you did it! It’s good to be the fun mom–gives something for kids to laugh at and you know you will be talked about for a lifetime by them. Good memories for them. 😀

  6. I think I was 38 when I burned one of my daughter’s friends with a hot glue gun! Add that to what you wrote and I’d have to say that 38 years olds aren’t too smart! Sorry.
