Empty Nest? Not!

Have you any idea how many children it takes to turn off one light in the kitchen? Three. It takes one to say, "What light?" 
and two more to say, "I didn't turn it on."

Veggie Mom, reporting on location with College Girl and The Wild One. No Empty Nest Syndrome here the past couple of days. I'm taking a few days off to Commune with My College Kidz, and they've shown me a thing or two.

Most of my recent college education involves the cost of groceries ("More Ramen Noodles, please!") and the location of the nearest mall.

I love 'em, I really do! I guess I just wish I didn't feel like a Human ATM Machine all the time!

LOL! Yeah well, once they are smart enough to realize how much stuff costs...they are smart enough to learn to ask MOM for everything again!!!!

Ha, ha, ha! The nest doesn't get empty by pushing them out but by gently guiding them to your wallet:-)

HAHAHA....a human ATM. Ok, I know that's not funny...but it kind of is. Have fun with your kiddos... :)

Human ATM... yes! That is what I am. I used to ask them what the magic word was and now I need to ask them what the "code" is. Ha!
