Daily Diary: My Daughter The Hoarder And My Son The Super Hero


Soooooooooooooo – Natalie was getting ready for school yesterday and she told me she wanted to bring her purse. I told her it wasn’t a good idea because she might lose her money. She then informed me that there was no money in her purse – just lollipop wrappers.


I asked – WHY would you have lollipop wrappers in your purse? She told me that it was the only way she could think of to help her remember what different flavors of lollipops she’s tried in her life.

Apparently, she’s been doing this all year long! Please tell me you have children that do similar things. LOL


And I couldn’t resist posting this adorable picture of my boy dressed up as Captain America. He loves that mask!!

  1. Too funny! My daughter hasn’t done this yet, but it sounds like something she would do. By the way, did you ever find the missing Halloween costumes from last year or were they actually thrown out?

    1. LOL – NO can you believe it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Spider Man costume was the spare we bought. So unreal!
