Rob received a check in the mail, a payment on a job he is doing painting someone's basement. The check was accompanied by this:We both had a good laugh when he opened it. But I can't let it go- my curiosity over the ordeal is twofold:

1. Who sends confetti with payment on a check to your painter?
2. What company makes this particular confetti and for what purpose? Someone graduating from handyman school? Happy birthday cheer for the plumber in your life? Congrats on that new set of power tools?

I am totally befuddled (and amused).

An advantage in raising a slim-hipped child

Pants that served the purpose they were made for (clam diggers for a child 12-18 months) - make cute board shorts for a child creeping up on 4.

Fun With Apples

For any of you that don't follow my family blog, here is a video from there. Perhaps it will give a little insight on why Scout adores her Aunt B and Uncle Matt so much (also some insight on why we all adore Miss Scout Ginger). The last half is a nice showcase of some of her "moves".

Random related moment: About an hour after posting this, I was in my room and Scout yells from her room:
"Mom! I need another apple!"
Me: "What happened to your other apple?"
Scout: "It's an apple core now!"

Rob and I just had a good laugh having never heard her use the term "apple core". I just thought that was funny and had to share it and adding it to the "fun with apples" post seemed fitting.
