Fast comebacks needed!

As so many say, T.G.I.F. My DD was happy that her SOL's are completed which signals the end of another school year. The whipper snapper was extremely on track this week as she corrected me on Tuesday that she needed to eat a healthy breakfast since she had an SOL that day. A donut is not healthy? ;-) She constantly amazes me with her factorial statements. This week we worked on quick comebacks when someone is trying to get her "goat." After explaining what "goat" meant, it was time to find some fast words when someone was trying to get her "goat". She is extremely literal so when a boy told her that her entire family was ugly, she said, " no their not." Then continued to argue with him that he had never met her father or I so he could not know that. This ensued into a huge screaming debate in PE where the two were pulled aside. Hmmm. No further comment. I found a few online games that offer responses to bullies and she played them once. Now it's boring. If you know of any sites that provide this type of lesson I would greatly appreciate the link. Thanks!

I worked on a card for the So Sketchy sketch using the Use It challenge.

Supplies: Cardstock: Wausau white, Bazzill red;pattern paper: Making Memories Love Notes; stamp: SU; ink: Staz-On black;ribbon: Wright's red satin; button: Dress It Up pink; floss: Prism pink

Last night my alter mojo came back and I made my friend Pam a little circular box with some SEI papers and misc. items she sent me recently.

Here's a view of the entire box:

Beautiful card! I love that chipboard. Your daughter's responses are funny. sounds like exactly what one of my daughters would say. The other would say, "I know you are, but what am I?" Cuz that's what her mom says to her ;)
