Today, I am thankful for a blustery fall day and comfort foods like grilled cheese, tomato soup, and homemade apple crisp. I heart the fall.
Oh yeah, and I am thankful for batteries. To kids, putting new batteries in old toys is like getting new toys, and thus might as well be comparable to winning the lottery. Its, like, awesome. Kids are entertained. Mom gets a break. Everybody wins!
P.S. The title of this post is a line from a movie I watched several times as a kid. Can anyone guess it? Only if you’re a dork like me…or a member of my family.

I hope this line is from movie “Sister Act”.
Totally correct!! You are awesome! Isn’t that a great movie. Love it. That was a line our family used for years 🙂
I’m with you on the battery/ old toy/new toy theory. As long as something lights up or teaches him Spanish, my kid is happy as can be 🙂
Haha…teaches him Spanish. LOL. So true. I started singing “Frere Jaques” to my son today and he looked at me like I was on drugs.
Sister Act! Alma, check your battery!! Same one you’re thinking of? 😀
YES! You’re awesome!!
Wow…I suddenly want to watch Sister Act again. I wish I had it in my movie collection. I had forgotten about that line. I love both Sister Act and Sister Act II. Gotta love Whoopie. =)
