Texting with the Shorties

14594978_WelcomeToTheFuture_03112013Final1

As a parent, technology is often my worst enemy.  Not only does it turn my son into a zombified video game addict half the time, but it also gives me gray hairs worrying about the prospect of someone sending a damn naked picture to one of my middle schoolers.  (*Gasp!!!*)  However, I'm starting to…

Trying to Keep My "Cool"

keep-calm-and-never-grow-up-102

I swear it wasn't that long ago that my kids wanted to do EVERYTHING with me.  But lately, I'm starting to realize that maybe I'm not quite as cool as I once thought I was.  (*What the hell?!!*)  Fifth grade is bringing on a whole new desire for independence, and friends are…

Plugging in when your middle-schooler wants to cut the cord

I'm always looking for opportunities to stay involved in my son's educational experience, which has gotten a little trickier since he moved up to middle school.  In elementary school, there were more ways for me to feel plugged in to his experience, as well as to engage with teachers and staff.   Now there are no more apple picking trips, family dance…

The Birds, the Bees & Bye Bye Birdie

Last week we went to see the 7th & 8th grade production of Bye Bye Birdie at my son’s middle school.  I am particularly fond of this piece because, back in the day, I was one of the “screaming girls” in my 8th grade’s production of the musical.  I…

Why Middle School Is Hell On Earth - From a Middle School Teacher

I taught several years as a middle school Spanish teacher before I became a full time stay at home mom. So when someone was talking to me about the trials and tribulations their 7th grade child was having, it reminded me how tough those years really are.

Middle School Vogue

I pride myself on being a reasonably fashionable person.  I make an effort to keep my clothes up to date, my hair in style, and my makeup fresh.  So, it is with much angst that I have watched Elliott slip into the sloppy styles sported by her middle school friends.

Ejected

Saturday was Elliott’s basketball tournament. We live in a small town, so her tournament was not an all day, all weekend kind of event. There were only four teams in her league with a single elimination tournament. Being from a small town, every team had at least one of Elliott’s best friends on the roster. Since the start of the season, I think she had played each team at least four times, so she kind of knew what she was up against.

In the middle...

I am a middle child. They say the worst placement is in between girls. I had the experience of being a little sister and a big sister. I had the experience of being in between two very different people. I have the gift being able to see many points of view.

I am still in the middle. It is a theme that dominates my life.

I am in the middle of keeping teenage girls quiet at 1 am…

Georgia O'Keffee's guardian angel comes forward quietly

Now that the world knows what I knew back then, I can blog about it! Tennessee’s attorney general, Bob Cooper, announced on Friday, October 22, 2010 that Fisk Alumna, Dr. Carol Creswell-Betsch, stepped forward with funds to keep the Stieglitz collection at Fisk University. To the shouts of many on the outside of the Fisk bubble, a Fisk alumnus was doing what alumni around the country do daily, support their school.

Review of Justin Case: School, Drool, and other Daily Disasters

September 14, Tuesday



Do you have a child who worries? I do. He’s been worrying since he was two. I worry that his worrying will keep him from having fun, playing with other kids, and trying out for the swim team.



I think it’s contagious.…

Choosing Books for Advanced Readers

On my Ink Spells blog, I've tried to give parents some content guidelines to help in choosing books for their kids. Even so, finding good books is a constant challenge as my kids are always reading faster than I can keep up. There's three of them after all; it's hardly fair.



Usually I check the AR guide first, to see what the "target" audience for the book is: publishers develop…
