Keeper of the Cheerios

Yep, that's me: Keeper of the Cheerios

I love that title. That really just sums up the average day in the life of a mother doesn't it. I can't tell you how many cheerios that I have swept up off the floor in a given day. Then, of course, how many I keep discovering that I missed (those little rascals are sneaky!).
I just heard the song "She's Somebody's Hero."
The lyrics for the first verse go like this:

She's never pulled anyone from a burning building
She's never rocked Central Park to a half a million fans,
screaming out her name
She's never hit a shot to win the game
She's never left her footprints on the moon
She's never made a solo hot air balloon ride, around the world,
No, she's just your everyday average girl (but)

She's somebody's hero
A hero to her baby with a skinned up knee
A little kiss is all she needs
The keeper of the cheerios
The voice that brings Snow White to life
Bedtime stories every night
And that smile lets her know
She's somebody's hero







Here's to all the heros out there - to all the other Keepers of the Cheerios!

I LOVE the words to that. I can so relate!

I can't belive Antonella is still on Idol. Have you heard of that website called vote for the worst? I heard about it awhile ago. It's the site where they try to keep the worst singer on for as long as they can by getting people to vote for the worst one. Guess who's listed as the worst female? ANTONELLA. That's probably why she's still on. I think people have too much time on their hands. LOL! Have a great week!
