What's Your Fortune?

In light of the HATE MAIL I'm still receiving, and deleting (because when you start insulting the other commenters who don't agree with you by spewing nasty, naive and ignorant words their way, I will not stand for it), I thought I'd post the fortunes my family received with our Chinese supper. They seemed quite appropriate for today.

Mine: Reach for the high apples first, you can get the low ones anytime. And it's right. I could spit nasty words back to the haters but I'm better then that and I'm better then those negative people. I'm a good person and a GREAT parent. I know it, as do my family and friends and that's all that matters.

Jer: Talk is cheap, barbers give it away free with haircuts. We're not sure exactly why fate brought this to Jer. Maybe it meant to back up the first fortune? Maybe the Haters need to go get their hair cut...?

Kyra: The one good thing about repeating your mistakes is that you know when to cringe. Jer and I both got a good laugh about this one. We think it was quite appropriate for a 3 year old who is still learning right from wrong by testing boundaries.


  1. what a great laugh! I am glad you are taking the high road. Stooping to their level is not worth it. Like you said, your family and friends know you are a great mother and that is all that matters. And when Kyra is my age she will call you up and thank you for being such a great mother (just like I did to my own mother)

  2. I think actually the haters are the haircutters, not that they need one...guess it could go both ways...either a)they are the hairdressers spewing out the cheap talk...b)they need a hair cut so they can get some cheap advice

  3. Oh I see now, that's why I can't leave a comment by just entering my name and url anymore. You changed the way comments are left, didn't you? I could use my Blogger account but that goes to the wrong blog...I guess I'll settle for being called "chickwithsticks"
