If I Were Running for President.....


If I were running for President:

-Work would begin at 11...we'd give it our best for a few hours, and we'd all be off by 3........attention, Daddy! (I work for my father....this is a subliminal message)

-Home economics with a concentration in cooking would be required from 5th grade ALLLLL THE WAY UP TO senior year. This is something I was never offered, and while I feel like my mom did a pretty great job, I really would've enjoyed school a lot more and would have probably picked up a few good tips and talents.
-I would invent the healthy pill that would allow everyone to eat what they want whenever they want without gaining a pound. This pill would not cause any long-term bad effects....it would just be plain good for us all! Ok, maybe this isn't if I were President.....maybe this is if I had special powers.......

-I would require every child to take typing classes in elementary school....this seriously pays off in the long run. No offense to you slow typers, but I can't stand watching the peck with pointer and thumb fingers :)
-Every person would be required to go on a mission trip at a very young age and continue to go at least once a year. I think the reason that some people think mission/missionaries are so crazy is because we weren't always raised in an environment where people really went out to all nations and preached the Word. It has always been "crazy radicals" who up and take their kids out of the country. Now, I'm not saying I would or wouldn't do this with my kids, but I do think it's good to have kids doing this at a young age so they can get their feet wet and see if this is something that they would potentially want to do with their life.

-No smoking inside any building in any state....period. Sorry, smokers. I love ya....my lungs just can't deal with it.
-I would change summer reading from those boring, required books to books of your choice. Not sure how I would regulate this/make sure students didn't read the same book every summer.....but I'd try to change it. Summer reading was a drag, and usually because I hated the book required. I'd probably require Twilight, The Hiding Place, Shopaholic series to name a few...Haha, totally kidding....NOT!
-Kids would be required to learn how to balance a checkbook/maintain a budget in middle and high school. Kinda sad that I just learned how to balance a checkbook this year. Oops...I just admitted that out loud, and I'm a bookkeeper. You didn't hear it from me.

Ok, ok...I'm sure there's a TON I'm forgetting, but here were a few of the things that just popped in my head super super quick! I am getting over a horrible infection with strep that has just absolutely knocked me out for the last 72 hours and this just seemed so fun when I caught up on Erin's blog this afternoon! Have a great week. Who knows...maybe one day I will become President and we will all be sleeping in Monday-Friday. Wishful thinking :) Don't forget to link up with Erin, and have a great day!

I'm sorry your sick! Strep is the WORST! But this was so funny. Vote for Brooke :)

Erin said...

Love your list :) I could definitely go for the work starting at 11 am and being off at 3. Also--great idea on the Missions trips for young kids. What you said is so so true.
Thanks for linking up!

(I work for my father....this is a subliminal message) I still am laughing..

Uhm, I might not vote for you.. let me explain.. uhm. I don't balance my checkbook. If you had been president when I was growing up, maybe I would. So I'm just gonna go right ahead and blame you:) Way to not be president when I needed you most.

Hahaha!! Love y'alls responses. Let's face it...I think the most important one is eating and never gaining a pound. PS-I went to respond to a few of y'all and didn't see emails attached to your blogger profile :(

Have a great day! Xo!
