Do people really fall for e-mail scammers?

I don’t typically respond to e-mail scammers but I did reply to one twice today. I thought you might enjoy a copied and pasted e-mail conversation. I have a hard time believing that people really believe these kinds of e-mails but I have heard of it happening.

I most likely won’t reasond to any again but this girl caught me on a day that I just wanted to call her out. Not that it will make a difference, she is a crook, but it made me feel better.

The font is a little messed up because I copied it but you can still read it.

Here it is: Continue reading

Keep ur 2-year-old busy for hours!

My 2-year-old requires a lot of attention right now and it is hard to keep him busy for long. If the TV is on 24/7 that helps but I just am not going to give into 24/7 and phone and computer games.

We have had a piggy bank for him for awhile, well since he was born, but yesterday we opened a business account and the bank gave us 2 piggy banks for the kids, when we left. They both were very excited when we brought them home.

Today I was needing some time to get things done and my son found a “big penny” on the floor  (yes I know it’s a quarter, but who am I to argue with a 2-year-old) and he wanted to put it in his piggy bank. Continue reading

Best babysitter ever!

The best babysitter for my very moody two-year old is not a human being. It is not the TV, nor any of his toys. The best babysitter ever is something I cannot go out and buy for a few bucks at the store.

My son has been going through his terrible two’s lately and he has been a little tougher to deal with. His attention span is at a negative on most days, and he is really starting to show his independence. Continue reading

Don’t leave the dog food open!

My 6-year old daughter has the job of feeding the dog. She does not have a lot of jobs around the house yet but she does have to feed the animals twice a day. It is actually a job she enjoys…mostly.

We keep the dog food int he garage and she has to scoop the food into the dogs bowl, in the garage, and then feed the dog in the back.

This may seem like a drama free task, but today it was not so drama free… Continue reading
