|Throw back from last summer, rockin’ the pout
My kids are amazing.
They were sitting around the living room the other day, brainstorming how mommy could sell her books. (my mini-marketing geniuses)
They ended up deciding that they should send Annabelle and Gabby out, my two youngest, (door to door I guess…) and have them look scraggly and dirty and tell people, “Please buy my mommy’s book so we can have food to eat” complete with pouty lip face and all. (see picture for example!)
They all practiced the sad face and everything, totally excited for the idea.
They were very crushed when Mommy told them this would probably not be a grand idea, because
a.) It’s not true– (my kids have plenty of food, I promise!!!!)
b.) The department of children’s services might be called by someone concerned that I wasn’t feeding my kids (or was using them for money.) I’m rather fond of my kids. I’d really hate for them to be carted off to foster homes….
But I gave them an A for effort in their brainstorming.
I think I’ll stick to the traditional annoying people on Facebook and Twitter and begging people to host me on their blogs/post reviews/etc.. (although their way might sell more books, LOL!!!!!)
What are some crazy ideas your kids come up with that make you just shake your head?
Another fun one…. my kiddos and their cousins made up a holiday. August 2nd is officially Flirburt day, the day to celebrate the color purple. You can see the fun on last year’s post….
So, if you think of it, Go PURPLE in celebration of, well, PURPLE, on Saturday.
