amen to that! LOL! Maddie had to miss her 6:40 bus to the Cross Country meet causes I made her skip it. Frickin some nerve in her mouth is going insane and she is in horrible pain...I am like..You CAN"T RUN 4 miles jarring your mouth...we have to wait and see if she broke a molar or just really hurt her mouth..and trying to explain to Russ what nerve pain is without hitting him with a frying pan..he has never had that kind of pain so he can't understand that it feels like someone is trying to rip out your teeth with no numbing..ugh...I am on countdown till they are all back in school next Tuesday. I am hoping my house is still standing by then..LOL!!
 
Totally pinning!  What an awesome idea!  I definitely need one of these in my kitchen.  It'd be a great place to write a grocery list!  Love it, Karin!
