All that praying didn't help

i can cross Sunday School Teacher off of my list of jobs.

Today Walker stayed home from school sick. Actually, he played hookie. And he thought that i should be his partner in crime. Unfortunately, I have a job that requires me to actually work. But that really didn't phase my son who popped into my office every 10 minutes with various questions.

"Mom, why are they called the Barenaked Ladies if they're all men?" Don't know.

"Mom, how do you clean up cat puke?" SERIOUSLY???

"Mom, if you eat too many carrots will you turn orange?" Yes, but you should try it.

"Mom, what's Mardi Gras?" The party before Lent.

"Mom why do we have to give up something during Lent?" Because it symbolizes Jesus going into the desert for 40 days to pray."

"Mom?" WHAT.................

"It didn't help, He still died."

Astute, that one.

I wrote once last fall about having to bring Shark to work with me and the questions - of the questions! - and it's just impossible to get anything done!
