On of the blogs I read had a post title of Wednesdays Child is full of Woe. It got me thinking. I pulled up the poem. I remembered who I could and calculated who I couldn't remember. Here are the results...
Monday's child is fair of face, (Rara)
Tuesday's child is full of grace, (Knight)
Wednesday's child is full of woe, (Me)
Thursday's child has far to go. (Desti)
Friday's child is loving and giving, (J-Bird)
Saturday's child works hard for a living, (J-Bell)
But the child born on the Sabbath Day,
Is fair and wise and good and gay.

So none of us were born on the same day of the week, and none of us is destined to be fair and wise and good and gay. Oh, the psychic ability of Mother Goose!

In other news...I won! Melody at Slurping Life had a fundraiser for Parker. People donated to help raise money. I won an animial costume from Janice and Susan at 5 Min for Moms.

And the last thing I have for you is helpful guidelines to help you understand what you will encounter if you venture into the midwest.

Because of misunderstandings that frequently develop when East Coasters and
Californians cross states such as Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, Nebraska,
Kansas, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota,
those states' Tourism Councils have adopted a set of information guidelines.In
an effort to help outsiders understand the Midwest , the following list will be
handed to each driver entering the state:

1. That farm boy standing next to the feed bin likely did more work before
breakfast than you do all week at the gym.
2. It's called a 'gravel road'. No matter how slow you drive, you're
going to get dust on your car.
3. We all started hunting and fishing
when we were seven years old. Yeah, we saw Bambi. We got over it.
4. Go ahead and \n bring your $600 Orvis Fly Rod. Don't cry to us if
a flathead catfish \n breaks it off at the handle. We have a name for
those little \n trout you fish for...bait.
5. Pull your pants up. You look like an idiot.
6. If that cell phone rings while a bunch of mallards are making
their final approach, we will shoot it! You might hope you don't have it up to
your ear at the time.
7. No, there's no "Vegetarian Special" on the menu. Order
steak. Order it rare. Or, you can order the Chef's Salad and pick
off the two pounds of ham and turkey.
8. You bring Coke into my house, it better be \n brown, wet, and
served over ice.
9. So you have a sixty-thousand dollar car you drive on weekends?
We're real impressed. We have a quarter-million dollar combine that
we only use two weeks a year.
10. Let's get this straight - We have one stoplight in town. We
stop when it's red. We may even stop when it's yellow.
11. Our women hunt, fish, and drive trucks--because they want
to. So, you're a feminist... Isn't that cute..
12. Yeah, we eat catfish. Carp, too--and turtle. You really
want sushi and caviar? It's available at the bait shop.
13. They are pigs. That's what they smell like. Get over it.
Don't like it? Interstates 70, 80, & 90 go two ways--Interstates
29, 35, & 69 go the other two. Pick one and use it accordingly.
14. The "Opener" refers to the first day of deer season. It's like a
religious holiday. You can get breakfast at the church.
15. So every person in every pickup waves. It's called being
friendly. Understand the concept? 16. Yeah, we have golf courses.
Just don't hit in the water hazard, it spooks our fish.
17. That Highway Patrol Officer that just pulled you over for driving
like an idiot, his name is "Sir". No matter how old he
18. The bill on your hat should turn down at the edges to shed the
rain and be centered over your nose to keep the sunlight out of your eyes.
Any other location/orientation makes you look like an idiot.
19. We also speak ENGLISH here, speak it or go

I find that poem rather psychic too. Weird! My kids-
Gabriel is Monday's child, Hannah is Tuesday's and Holly is Wednesday's. All of them fit with the day's theme!

Congrats on winning the costume. Those are cute!
