I think I'm in love...

Last week I needed some cute flower headbands for my girls (needed them) but at 20 bucks a pop it just wasn't gonna happen. I mean with four daughters that's eighty stinkin' dollars. I'm so good at math. Actually I'm not and here's a little side story to prove it...

The other night while at an interview at my church the counselor, who is also a teacher, asked how my kids were doing in school. I said that one was struggling with Geometry, but that I couldn't blame her because it never made sense to me either. At which time he said, "You know without Geometry life would be pointless." We both smiled and if I had only left it at that all would be fine, but no, we were making small talk so I had to, well, talk and say, "Oh, I don't know. I think I've gotten along just fine without it." At which time he somewhat sheepishly explained to me that it had been a joke because Geometry deals with points and all that jazz. You know. But of course I didn't know because I DON'T GET GEOMETRY. Hadn't I just told him that? Anyway, it was funny because I'm simply not embarrassed about my lack of math skills. To each have been given gifts and math is definitely not mine, but no worries because I have other mad skills to get me by in life.

Like my new mad skill of making my own cute flower headbands (made the flowers and all) for my girls at far less than 20 bucks a pop. I know, right.
S-K-I-L-L-S!

And now I give you...

I agree; who needs geometry? I can't do geometry OR cute headbands, but as you said, we each have our own gifts!
