Piece de Resistance

Peanut Butter graced us with her First Drawing on the Wall, titled Scribble-de-Scrib. I almost didn't think it was going to come off. I really had to scrub. I know, I've heard the magic eraser is, well, magic. I just can't bring myself to buy one. Too bad she has eaten most of the color wonder stuff, who ever came up with that is genius, pure genius. PB just doesn't have the patience yet to wait for it to magically appear. Maybe that's why it says ages 3 and up. Who knew.

I finished the book, Come Back, last night. It was an amazing read. I picked it up to prepare my self for what could be the very worst in dealing with the Mom/Daughter dynamic. It is about a mother who's daughter ends up half way across the country strung out on drugs and her quest to save her. The mother ends up sending her to a rehab/reprogramming place in Czechoslovakia, which gets shut down and is transferred to one in Montana. The book is written by both of them, so you get a sense what the other is feeling at the same time. It bounces back and forth between the two. It was really really good. I don't want to give away to much, but I am recommending to all moms of daughters even teen daughters. It can be difficult to read in parts as in emotionally.

I have regressed on the running. I only walked yesterday; Friday I did nothing, my hinder was killing me. I did some today, but I admit I took a shortcut to get to the park sooner. I'm such a slacker. I did get out there though.

Yikes! My son's first artwork was at about the same age as PB--with a ballpoint pen on the fabric / cushion of my taupe colored chair. I got it out with Oxyclean. But-ugh- what a mess!

The Magic Eraser ROCKS! (although I"ve never used it for writing on the wall). Get it at Walmart where it's cheaper! So worth it.
