Read all that piled up e-mail!! Then relaxed with one of those silly TICKLE TESTS "What Kind of Mom Are you?" they are validating and self indugent ME time for me! http://web.tickle.com/tests/mom/ My results: you've got what it takes to be a Creative Mom! Recipe for: The Creative Mom Quote: "No problem! We'll just..." Ingredients: A bunch of fresh ideas A potful of ingenuity A dash of inspiration Whatever's in the fridge You're the type of mom who can make a prize-winning Halloween costume from cardboard boxes and old stuff from the garage, or whip up a tasty after-work meal from whatever's in the fridge and the cupboard. And what about your ability to make an earlier bedtime sound like a great idea to the kids? When there's a problem, you solve it—with wit and inspiration. You're a figure-outer and it shows in your creativity and innovation. Whether it's taking care of school projects or giving social advice to your kids, when you put that sharp mind to it, you always come up with devastatingly clever solutions. Tip: Don't slow down on the ingenuity when it comes time for cooking for the family. If you know they like something, don't make it over and over. Be creative. Think of other dishes that are similar to the favorites, but with an interesting twist. It may lead to a world of new "mom, can we have?" requests. NOW IF ONLY I WERE A MORE ORGANIZED MOM! HAVE TO GET OUT OF MY PJS FAST AS ITS ALMOST TIME TO GET SADIE TO THE BUS AND I HOPE WE MAKE IT!!!
