#28 Superman Joins the Boy Scouts: When my husband & I attended a community event with our oldest daughter, our little guy wandered off. We searched room by room, upstairs & down. Panic! Finally we tried the occupied room next door--there he was, in the middle of a Boy Scout troop meeting! The Scout leader assured us that he was just fine and had done well in the troops' activities, including an obstacle course. The Scouts were reluctant to let him go - apparently he kept them entertained.
Dramatic Mom #27: "Towel Powder" Lately I've been letting my youngest child have free reign in the kitchen. She made Irish soda bread from a kit. It required that she roll the dough on a floured cloth. The next day, I grabbed a kitchen towel from the counter to dry my hands--POOF! Flour bomb!

Dramatic Mom #24: "How NOT to Use a Hand Dryer" I was wearing an oversized jacket with bulky sleeves. I slipped my hands into the grooves of a turbo hand dryer in a public restroom. When I tried to pull my hands back out, I realized that I was STUCK! The sleeves were wedged in the grooves of the dryer; the kind that blasts turbo-force air via motion sensor. How long would it take before someone came in and saw me? Fortunately I didn't have to find out - I wriggled my wrists until I freed…
Dramatic Mom "Santa Baby" I told my son Nicholas that our baby would be born near Christmas. I didn't realize that he would think Santa Claus was delivering the baby!
Dramatic Mom #22 GREEN WRITING I wrote part of my latest book in the garden. More accurately, the garden was where I was writing. I was overzealous in my attempt to grow pepper plants. Summer was unseasonably cool and none of the peppers produced anything. When frost threatened to kill them off, I brought them all inside -- all of them.
