Best Silly Kid Arguments

Okay, I stand really, REALLY corrected. Have you been following the comments about dryer lint? Turns out this stuff is gold! Besides clay, you can turn it into paper, firestarters, stuffing, a source of income, and even art. (I love the little lint angels.)

My poor deprived children. No wonder they had to fight over it! Ha.

I also greatly enjoyed your stories about stupid kid fights that have taken place under your roof. The brothers fighting over who got to wear the garbage can on his head is a classic!

Anyone else got a Kids Fight Over the Most Ridiculous Things story? Send ’em my way!

Sure and She’s a True Irishwoman

Today is the feast day of my confirmation name saint, St. Brigid of Ireland, patron saint of scholars, poets, babies, blacksmiths, milkmaids, and midwives. I admire St. Brigid for her kindness, her merry spirit, her love of scholarship, her generosity to the poor and sick, her feistiness—and this quote:

"I would like a great lake of beer for the King of Kings.
I would like to be watching Heaven’s family drinking it through all eternity."

A great lake of beer—now that’s what I call a prayer!
