Food for thought...

My sister posted this on her blog. I've gotten this in an email before & really got a kick out of it. Some days, I think my kids would vote ME off the island! I think the dads should also have to hold a full time teaching job & commute an hour to & from work & make it winter, in a car, with no four wheel drive!

Six married men will be dropped on an island with one car and 3 kids each for six weeks. Each kid will play two sports & either take music or dance classes.There is no fast food. (This is where I would lose!)Each man must take care of his 3 kids; keep his assigned house clean, correct all homework, and complete science projects, cook, do laundry, and pay a list of 'pretend' bills with not enough money. In addition, each man will have to budget in money for groceries each week.Each man must remember the birthdays of all their friends and relatives, and send cards out on time—no emailing.Each man must also take each child to a doctor's appointment, a dentist appointment and a haircut appointment. He must make one unscheduled and inconvenient visit per child to the Urgent Care.He must also make cookies or cupcakes for a social function. Each man will be responsible for decorating his own assigned house, planting flowers outside and keeping it presentable at all times.The men will only have access to television when the kids are asleep and all chores are done. The men must shave their legs, wear makeup daily, adorn himself with jewelry, wear uncomfortable yet stylish shoes, keep fingernails polished and eyebrows groomed.During one of the six weeks, the men will have to endure severe abdominal cramps, back aches, and have extreme, unexplained mood swings but never once complain or slow down from other duties.They must attend weekly school meetings, church, and find time at least once to spend the afternoon at the park or a similar setting.They will need to read a book to the kids each night and in the morning, feed them, dress them, brush their teeth and comb their hair by 7:00 am.A test will be given at the end of the six weeks, and each father will be required to know all of the following information: each child's birthday, height, weight,shoe size, clothes size and doctor's name. Also the child's weight at birth, length, time of birth, and length of labor, each child's favorite color, middle name, favorite snack, favorite song, favorite drink, favorite toy, biggest fear and what they want to be when they grow up.The kids vote them off the island based on performance.The last man wins only if...he still has enough energy to be intimate with his spouse at a moment's notice. If the last man does win, he can play the game over and over and over again for the next 18-25 years eventually earning the right to be called Mother!

I thought this was a great email! It is so true. Sam's hair would look really cute all curly. It is really pretty easy. When she has wet hair at night from her bath, pull it into the elastics how you want it in the morning. If you try to do it after it's curly, it is just to frizzy. Then just use the foam curlers(found at a dollar store) to roll it all up. I usually spray a little hair spray before I roll it for a crunchy curl. I usually put about a square inch in each. Then in the morning, unroll them all, spray a little more hairspray, and separate the curls. You could also do little braids with a curler at the end that would be cute. I'd love to see how it turns out! The worst part is sleeping on the curlers. If she can't do that then try rags with the same concept. Let me know if you try it. It makes for an easy do in the morning :)
