SNAP! Insights

Mandy learned a lot at SNAP!. She learned about about Pinterest. She learned about making Google love her blog. She learned about making more money from blogging so she can buy me a Harley.

She also learned about succulents, which I had never heard of. Turns out it's not some sort of homemade lingerie, but crafting with live plants. I'm glad she got that life skill down.

While she was gone, I learned a few things as well:

  • 90% of laundry is caused by pajamas and unnecessary outfit changes.
  • 90% of washing dishes is caused by cups used once for a single drink of water.
  • The easiest way to settle an argument between the kids about which night to eat out is to eat out every night.
  • Ice cream is part of the diet when your wife's out of town.
  • Our 4-year old can turn on my phone, hack it's passcode, and beat the hardest level on Angry Birds, but he can't make his own oatmeal. I'm not sure if that's a parenting success or failure.
  • Your 6-year old daughter thinks it's great to be the last one picked up at soccer practice since the field has a jungle gym. Her coach doesn't think it's great.
  • If you show up at the airport to pick your wife up with a pint-sized security detail, she will inevitably be the last one off the plane.

  1. I bet everyone at the airport had fun seeing your family dressed up.

  2. Awesome! I love your perspective on things. The question IS, did the cups that cause 90% of your dirty dishes make it to the sink, or get left half full of water all around the house???

  3. That is great! Every man needs to have a weekend as a mom! Everyone looks pretty sharp at the airport. My hubs has trouble matching the girls tops and bottoms.

  4. That's the best airport pick up ever! We live two hours from the airport so I never have anyone waiting for me. I just get off the plane and drive myself home. I consider it a victory if someone helps me bring my bags from the car into the house.

  5. As always a great laugh! And amen on #1! Drives me nuts! But a 4yr old and a five year old find it necessary to change all day!

  6. Your laundry one is the best. Oddly my five year old son is the biggest offender of this. Not my girls...just my boy. Figures.
