I think Riley stays up late thinking up ways he can keep things entertaining at school.  I'm starting to get a little gun shy when I pick him up from school.  I never know quite what he will have come up with during the day to keep his teacher on her toes.  Today's report was not surprising since he left the house in a mood.  He didn't line up from recess and hid in the ferns during music class.  The weird one was when the little boy in his class stopped me to tell me that Riley glued his vest.  I didn't really understand what he was talking about until I picked up the vest and it was indeed covered with Elmer's glue.  Even the teacher was a bit baffled how it happened and wasn't so sure he was being naughty but really how does one end up with their vest in a puddle of glue with out being naughty. 

When I sat down to write this evening I was in search of some inspiration.  I actually typed it into my Google search bar  "Inspirational Quotes on Patience"  and then when I wasn't satisfied with the results I added  "while raising children" . 

I found a few I liked. 

Children are unpredictable.  You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next. ~ Franklin P Jones

Boys, n:  a noise with dirt on it. ~Not Your Average Dictionary

If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers.  ~ Edgar W Howe

In my stroll around the Internet I found this video that I enjoyed.   I found my inspiration for the day.

  1. Between the hiding in the ferns and the glue on the vest, this was just the laugh I needed to start my day! I know it's frustrating for you, but I figure he's five and at least he's not eating the glue. There was a kid in my kindergarten class who ate glue...Never have understood that. ( ;
    That was a great video!
