What Is In My Purse

I am joining Klugy Mom's Back 2 School, Back 2 Blogging (B2S, B2B)!  Klugy Mom has some great blog tips in her posts and I thought this would be a way for me to learn some new tricks and do some updating to my blog.  You know, every now and then you just got to "spice" things up!
So enjoy my homework!  I'll be posting something at least once a week.  You will also start seeing new things pop up on my blog!  If you are interested in learning some new blogging tricks, use the button on the right here to come and join the Back 2 School, Back 2 Blogging!

The other day I was in a meeting.  One of the ladies in the meeting with me had her daughter with her.  She was 5 or 6 and was starting to get bored. 

Now she had been really good up to this point, but the meeting was getting a little long and it was just all she could do to keep up the good behavior.

I happened to think that I had some toys in my purse.

I reached in the purse and pulled out two toys--a small tractor and a small car.  Now if she had been my boys she would have grabbed up the toys and hit the floor, the table and all the book shelves in the room playing away. 

But she was not my boys and she just looked at the car and tractor with a look that said, "What are these? Do my pigtails and cute girly shirt not tell you that I don't play with those!!  Lady, you've lost it!!"

The other ladies saw the same looks the young girl was giving me.  It was pretty unanimous that I had pulled out the wrong toys for this girly, girl!

So, back to the purse!

I pulled out a zip lock bag.  In it I had some muscadines.  I thought she might want something to eat.  Besides, eating something would keep her busy and muscadines will really keep her busy because she would have to use her hands to eat them. Again I thought, this would work for my boys.

This time she looked closer at the food offering.  But looking was all she did!  The look I got this time was, "Lady, you are just strange!!"

I wasn't giving up...back to the purse!

There had to be something in this "bag of tricks" that would hold her interest!  I dug deeper.  I found a little magazine!  This would be perfect!  It small and would just fit in her hands. 

I pulled out the magazine--a football magazine.  What girl wouldn't like to look at a magazine with sports stuff in it!  I know the boys would have a blast checking out all the pictures and pages!

Well, this time she looked at me with confusion!!  Her look said, "Lady, you really have no idea that I am a GIRL!!".

There is a reason I have boys!!!
