Lying lips sink ships

Well today Max pulled one over on me.
He said he was sick, so I decided to let him stay home.
So while Danny and I bustled around, packing lunch and eating breakfast, Max, 7, was plotting his next video game strategy.
I had planned to get together with my mom and go to Panera Bread, so I told Max to call and tell her that plans had changed, he did and sounded very cheerful and of course, not sick.
"Are you really sick, Max?" I asked, my eyes searching his.
"Mom, feel my head, don't I feel pale?" was his reponse.
So, because he felt so "pale" I decided that maybe he really was ill.
His brother of cource freaked out.
"No fair, I want to be sick, too! Feel my head."
I didn't feel Danny's head, I just blew my stack.
"All right, I don't want to hear anymore about this! Daniel, you just get your coat on this instant!" I had my best car alaram "mom voice."
Then a small voice behind me said "Mom, I'm gonna go to school."
Of course it was 7:50 a.m. when Max decided that he could no longer be dishonest with me. And he took 20 minutes to change out of his play clothes back into his uniform.
"Max why did you change your mind?" I said as we were driving away.
"Mom, lying lips are an abomination to the Lord."
Ah, Christian private school money well spent.

Anyway, here's your freebie, it's called "All My Clothes Is Camo." Based on Josie's of Iron Orchid Designs, see right (isn't that stuff cool?), post on DST under pet peeves. What she said made me LOL and I thought her comment was the perfect name for my kit.

LOL! I saw her comment on that thread, so when I saw your freebie pic and read your post, I really did laugh out loud. And while it wouldn't technically be accurate that all of my son's clothes are camo, sometimes it seems that way. Thanks for the great papers; very kind of you to share!

I haven't visited your blog for the past few days and I did some reading to catch up. I'm loving all the talk about the 80's and 90's. Makes me feel young again. Sometimes, I, too, still feel like a teenager and then I remember I have kids of my own and I'm supposed to be a grown up. The Tampax story really made my laugh though! Never expected that on a blog! Thanks for the beautiful freebies. That's great about making it to the second round at Srap Artist! Congratulations! That's no small accomplishment as there were soooooo many talented entries! I'll bet you are stoked! Anyway, have a great weekend!
