Five for Friday {March 29}

WAAAAAAA!!!! It's the cry heard 'round the world-
(well at least around my block)
It's the LAST Friday of Spring Break!!!!

There are still good things ahead though for the last couple of days- so much to look forward to-
And the big plus is that it is Friday and we get to Link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for :

This week was relaxing for the most part-
Until......

Until I took Chickadee to the DMV to get her permit.
I know what you you're thinking:
"Squirrels, you don't look old enough to have a child who drives..."

Oh? You weren't thinking that???
Wait, now you are just pretending you were to make me feel better- I appreciate the compliment!

We spent 2.5 hours of our lives at the DMV Wednesday morning. My plan was to be there 20 minutes before the doors opened so that we could be one of the first ones in line.
Apparently I am not the genius that I thought I was- because 50 other people had the same idea!.

I made a few observations while we were there-
(And even though I said "few", remember, we were there for 2.5 hours.

Here's what I noticed:

1. It's never okay to wear sweatpants in public, Dear Sir.

2. There's a good chance their gonna take your picture today- spruce it up bit,  folks.

3. Babies. Call a buddy. Text a friend. SOMEONE has got to be available.

4. Whispering is not a practiced skill in many households. Grown ups should know how to use their inside voices.

5. No one cares how cutely you dressed your toddler today- we are not here to entertain her.

6.No matter where you sit, there will be awkward eye contact throughout your DMV experience.

and finally

7. There are 628 ways to respond to "You do not have the correct documentation."

It was an adventure to say the least.


Anyway, here she is.
What once was a tiny bundle of screaming, pooping, puking, non-sleeping, crying-all-night joy is now legal to be behind the wheel.



She has requested that I not share her photo- so I disguised her- SMELL IT, Chickadee!

Half way there folks!!! Check and see if your state is sporting cute coffee!

I have a few little things to take care of this evening-
LIKE PERPETUAL NOTHINGNESS!!!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
Smooches!

  4. It sounds like DMVs are the same no matter what state they're in! Been there, done that once already with my oldest, and I still have 2 more kids to go. I'd rather cook dinner than go to the DMV, and you know that's saying a lot!

  6. I love your observations from the DMV! Sounds like the experience my husband and I had just a few years ago when we had just moved. Glad to know other people make these observations when people watching. ;)

  7. Oh wow, the little miss is behind the wheel! Yay, she can drive you down for a hangout day! Funny thing is I had the same observations last time I was at the DMV.
