A Funny Thing Called Life

http://thebesttexasmimi.blogspot.com/

I blog about the many funny things that happen in my daily life. It can range from catching the living room carpet on fire with flaming taco shells to the story about my grandson drawing an "eagle alien"!! I tend to find the humor in every day...

What's the funniest thing your child has ever done or said?

What always makes you laugh?

What's the funniest gift you've ever received?

Have you seen any cute kids' rainboots or umbrellas for sale this fall? Please share a link!

Do you try to give back when you declutter? Please share your family traditions for benefitting others.

This is a huge thing in our home!! Whenever my grandkids outgrow toys and clothes, instead of taking them to a thrift shop or a consignment store we always take them to one of our local Crisis Pregnancy Centers or one of our local "crisis centers". They are always so happy to receive these items!! Also check with other local agencies that help out families in times of crisis and see if they might want those items. I know there was one time we donated and the next day someones house burned down and the items we had taken to them were used o help that family. They wrote the nicest letter to me thanking me for bringing those items!! I also want to mention something that is done in my community quite a bit, when a child outgrows a larger toy or "ride on" oftentimes the parent will put it out next to the road with a big "free" sign on it. We've "donated" and received awesome items this way!!
