So What Wednesday

I found this idea on Life After I Dew, and I thought it would be fun to start linking up every other Wednesday.

This week, here's what I'm saying SO WHAT to:
  • So what if I have the urge to grab the pizza box out of my neighbor's trash and sneak it into my recycle bin?
  • So what if I'm a really bad sharer when it comes to my Ben & Jerry's?
  • So what if I never fill out my kids' reading lists from school. They read, I promise you!
  • So what if I let my big kids skip school to attend their little sister's preschool graduation, AND two days later signed them out of school early to go up north with their grandparents? We did not, after all, get any threatening letters from the school district this year regarding attendance!
  • So what if I never answer a phone call unless I recognize the number?
  • So what if I sometimes leave dirty dishes in my sink all day because I don't want to do my kids' chore of unloading the clean dishes from the dishwasher? It's the principle!
  • So what if my 2nd and 4th graders are responsible for fixing their own breakfast and making their own lunches every morning? I'm teaching them to be self-reliant!
  • So what if my kids eat things like cold cereal, yogurt, and bagels for breakfast when their grandmother cooked a hot breakfast for their father every day of his childhood?
  • So what if I haven't put nail polish on my finger nails in years? It chips off within about 2 hours anyway, so why bother?
How about you? What are you saying SO WHAT to this week?

ok- so we have already laughed about klondike bars in the tub for about so what?....I had 10 minutes to serve myself dinner last night before I needed to tend to the instead of eating, I drank a glass of wine :)

LOL Tracy, I hope you enjoyed it! It's probably better than ice cream, which is my no-time-or inclination-to-cook meal of choice!
