Father's Day
Houston, I have a problem:

At Church on Sunday the kids made Father's Day presents -- as they do every year in advance of Father's Day. One of the ladies who helps with the kids sadly had her father pass away last year and she brought in all his old ties and had the kids "decorate them" with all kinds of little doo-dads that they glued on.

That's not the problem. I have lots of trophies like that and I love them all.

My problem is that I had four little girls in with this activity and ALL of them expect me to wear their tie this next week.

Has anyone ever had to wear four ties at once before? How do I do it?

oh boy
four ties?
think think think
could wear one regular, one on each arm & the other.......jeez it had to be 4....headband?
or wear one aound your neck & try and hang the others off it?
Your gonna look goofy one way or another

Hmmm, tough one.

How about one around the neck, one as a head band, and one ties around each bulging bicep!


You could try tying all four around your neck; one in front, one in back, and one on each side!


I don't have the problem. My son is 14 and it is just not cool anymore...
And my daughter, 9 will likely create something using multi colored construction paper, flour, water, glue, several markers, and a few carefully chosen pebbles from outside. Oh and lots of glitter!

looks like sc & I are operating the same wave length

Jeff Westover 06-06-2007 10:06 PM're both forgetting that I have to wear these things TO CHURCH...thank goodness my three older children weren't in there!

Jinglebelle 06-06-2007 11:06 PM

why don't you make some kind of deal with them to wear one for the next 4 sunday's?
in no paticular order of course... or maybe make up some game to decide who's is when...

either way...good luck!

I'm just hoping for a bad cold at this point.

Jinglebelle 06-06-2007 11:14 PM

Maybe you could make a tie schedule and change them every half hour or so on sunday...?

Good luck with the cold, don't wash your hands till sunday! hehehehe!

I'm picturing a James Bond-esque tie rotator.
