Poo Pieces - 05/09/14

    For any mom reading this, the title won't even make you flinch.  Others, well.... you may need to click out.   This blog is an  ode to all my fellow moms.
    First off, let me just say I looooooove being a mom.  I was so busy working on my career and so was he that my husband and I started our family late.  So, I'm incredibly blessed to have 2 healthy children, but I've just got to tell you... if we had started earlier...  I would have given the Duggars a run for their money.   I love this!
    The things my kids say, the things they do, the way they're learning to relate to the world around them is the most intriguing thing this curious journalist has ever and will ever be a part of. 
     So, why Poo Pieces as a title?  Because that's what I had to clean up today.  My dear husband left early before the rest of us were up.  The toilet in our master bathroom apparently was showing signs of malfunctioning, so since he was running late, he simply closed the lid and stacked 10 rolls of toilet paper on top of it. 
     Somehow, we were supposed to all figure out that that meant the commode was out of order.  When my son woke up, he was the first to run down to our room and use OUR toilet for some reason.  In one fell swoop he throws off the toilet paper rolls and hops on board for his morning ritual.  Then, he flushes.
     For the next 45 minutes or so.... you know it... I'm cleaning up poo pieces. 
     Happy Mothers Day to all the good and loyal moms out there who've done that and more, who answer the call of motherly duty every day whether it's to wipe a tear, give a hug, correct behavior or sneak some neck sugar from your babies....  Your work is leaving a legacy.... and I'll just end by saying thank goodness for Comet, Lysol Wipes, Bleach and Soft Scrub.  I kept them all in business today.

OLYMPIC SLED RIDE

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) -- If this record-breaking winter isn't wild enough -- you can slide belly-down on sled at about 40 miles per hour. The site of the 1980 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid, New York, is offering skeleton sledding. For 75 bucks, visitors can try the twisting sled run. It's all over in a flash, about 40 seconds. Scott Hayes of Toronto says it was a lot faster than he anticipated. Jillian Frascoia of Richmond, Vermont, says it was scary, but great.

BASKETBALL JERSEY CONTROVERSY

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It's was an attempt to think pink. And it almost cost a girls' high school basketball team a chance to play for the Los Angeles city championship. Officials disqualified Narbonne High, after the girls wore uniforms with pink letters and numbers for breast cancer awareness. Rules require teams to wear only their official school colors. Now, league officials have reversed their decision, but coach Victoria Sanders has been suspended for the rest of the season. Sanders tells the Los Angeles Times she accepts the punishment. The Narbonne girls' basketball program will be on probation through next season. The team faces Palisades High in the section championship game Saturday.

NATIONAL ARCHIVES-ALCOHOL

WASHINGTON (AP) -- You might think of it as the United States of booze. The National Archives is exploring America's long history with alcohol. Curators pulled 100 original items and documents from the archives. They include the 18th Amendment that created Prohibition, the 21st Amendment that repealed it, President Franklin Roosevelt's cocktail shaker and a first edition of "Alcoholics Anonymous." "Spirited Republic: Alcohol in American History" opens tomorrow in Washington.

TIME CHANGE-SAME HOUSE

KENDALL, Kan. (AP) -- Think this weekend's time change is a headache? Well, consider the situation of Ron and Sherry Finlay. Their home near Kendall in western Kansas sits on the line that divides the Mountain and Central time zones. Walk through a door on one side of the house, it's Central Time. Go through another door, and it's Mountain Time. They tell the Hutchinson News they've decided to live on Mountain Time. But Sherry Finlay says it sometimes gets confusing for visitors.
