I Am Sick Of Obama Ads

I am really tired of Obama ads. Since Nevada is a swing state we have commercial after commercial for Obama. I swear it is 3 to 1 in favor of Obama, as far as the ads go. But none of them say anything like this http://greensboro.rhinotimes.com/orson.10.09.08.html . I SO wish that they did.

Socks and Such

Does anyone else have a child/sock problem? I know it exists because I have heard countless stories about my older sister Noelle and her hour long fits about her socks (every morning from the time she was in 1st grade until 5th grade). She wasn't a favorite child around the house in those years.

The dreaded sock problem has now come to our house. I thought it would be my girls, but nope it's Parker. Last week he had a fit every single morning about the line in his socks. It "bugs" his toes. He can't quietly have this fit somewhere out of my hearing. Instead he has to sit as close to me as possible, but not close enough for me to kick him, and complain, throw his body on the floor, squirt tears from his eyes all the while telling me it's not his fault that he is acting this way. "It is his socks that make him do it. " After four mornings of this I decided to put the matter in his Dad's hands. Matt, who is the way better parent, went to the store and bought the kind of socks that Parker likes, saving me from countless mornings of Parker fits and saving Parker's backside. Thank goodness for Dad.
