Casandra Bennett said...

The one about Monica made me laugh...true! And now my kids know not to use my supplies unless I allow it by personally overseeing, and yes, I ended up doing my son's kindergarten poster a few years ago. Mine, I mean HIS, was easy to spot because our last night was cut in big letters on the cricut. LOL
