1. “Shark Teeth” is the word for when your child grows permanent teeth behind their baby teeth without losing the aforementioned baby teeth. “Freaked” is the word to describe my reaction to seeing two sets of teeth growing in the exact same place in my 5-year-old’s mouth.
2. Hobby Lobby will not make you pay (no matter how much you insist) for the $6.99 decorative plaster ball that gets chucked violently across the store and decimated by your 2-year-old in his fit of rage at the indignity of being forced to ride in a shopping cart. Thank you, Hobby Lobby. You have earned a customer for life.
3. A bank-wide computer glitch can prevent all bank customers from accessing any money for an entire day and in those instances there is nothing at all that can be done to get your money while the computers hold it hostage. Scary but true. The moral of the story? People who hide cash in their mattresses or floor boards might not be as crazy as I thought.
4. When you’re at your son’s first dentist appointment and he has an epically dirty diaper just moments before getting in the chair and you realize you came to the dentist with diapers but no wipes it is good to know that Trader Joe’s Oatmeal Make-up Remover wipes also work on the other end of the human body.
It’s been a busy day around here. Can’t wait to see what I get to learn with the rest of my week…
