I have a dear friend whose child is entering kindergarden. There is only one child in the family and thus, Mom, Dad, and Baby Girl are all in new territory. Not only did Mom forget to pack the "get to know you picnic" lunch (she ran through the drive thru for a happy meal) but she had the dates wrong and missed the picnic. She was sure she was the Worst Mom Ever.

My personal favorite is #5--"I spelled 'first' wrong on the homemade sign my son held up for his school photo..."
- My first job was as a "Soda Jerk" at Cone Corners in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. (Cheesy, huh?)
- Every spring, I participate in the World's Largest Trivia Contest in my hometown of Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Out of about 500 teams and 10-12,000 players, we usually finish in the top 100!!! It's 54 straight hours of useless information and I love it. See? I'm not wired right. Just for the record, my team placed 73rd this year. :)
- I am a proud doggie mommy of "Spooner." She's a rescue who was an abused puppy mill mom. I am amazed at the FANTASTIC rescues and shelters we have in West Michigan. If you think you want to add to your family, the joy of a shelter pet in unparalleled!
- I was the lead singer in a cover band and I miss it.
