The Day School Closed

I am watching the great blizzard of 2011 raging outside my window. There is a fire in the fireplace, homemade salsa simmering on the stove, and a glass of Irish whiskey within reach. Life can’t get much better. I had nowhere I needed to be today, and I have an appointment tomorrow, but if I don’t make it, it’s OK.

 

School was closed today and it has already been cancelled for tomorrow. I don’t think the girls have gone to school for a full week since before Christmas. I am…

A Sexting Failure

There were three things I promised myself I would never write about when I started my blog…first, I would never write about my mother…second, I would never write anything that would cost me a presidential election…and last, I would never write about sex.

High School Sucks...And Then It's Over! Mary's Story

Yesterday, my daughter Mary, who is 22, and I took Sandor out to play tennis. I've always wanted a child to play tennis with and now my hopes lie with my youngest boy.

 

  As a pre-teen, Mary tried to play tennis, and several other sports, but they were all miserable and almost embarrassing failures.  We laughed and had fun on the court but she was a beautiful, smart, spaz who refused to even…

Long Term Concerns & Wishes

I spent the better part of my afternoon filling out a school application for Norrin. One application. Nine pages long. I took my time, printed as neatly as possible - even at the end, as my wrist began to ache. I needed his application to be perfect; the application was…

The Common Denominator

What do teachers and students have in common?  They're all people.  Too often, this similarity is overlooked if not entirely forgotten.  Teachers good and bad fall into their roles, and students, often with some resistance, follow suit.  Ignoring humanity in our school systems does no one any favors, and it only gets worse as the government focuses on test scores and statistics instead of on students.



As I considered who to highlight here, the choices seemed endless.  I could choose… Continue

Back To School: mUm, Where Did I Put My Book?

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/08/back-to-school-now-where-did-i-put-my.html

If, like me, you are counting the days 'til Summer holidays take a hike, then you are also getting ready for the back to school madness that, somehow clings to my, almost 11, step-daughter, and probably, most children this age!



This whole back to school madness, with missed lunches, dog ate…

Becoming a stay at home mom part four....

Jay blew into our lives like a whirl wind. He was my cousin’s fiancé’s cousin (kinda confusing, I know) and we met because my cousin lived in the apartment upstairs from me.





We started talking slowly – my car got stuck in the snow a few times and he would come down and get me out.

Then we started actually hanging out, and the first time he came over, we talked nonstop for 4 hours! It was great. I was actually happy when I was with him, and I felt so…

Using Leftovers for School Lunch

Running out of ideas for your kids’ school lunches? Nobody wants to eat the same lunch day after day. That’s why LEFTOVERS are a perfect idea for lunch. Always cook extra so you know there will be enough to send for lunch the next day. There are many dinner foods that can be made into a nice lunch and it will be super convenient for you so you won’t have to prepare something new in the morning! Finding the time to plan and pack the perfect lunch can be a challenge for most families. School… Continue

Life is insane and never catching up

I must have been kidding when I said that I would have more time to
blog, amongst other things, when my daughter started school. Life has
been anything BUT completely hectic. Wine, anyone?

PART 2







After being out of work, and living on one income plus a small amount of unemployment, we decided that I needed to go back to work. Violet was older, she was more adjusted and a little less clingy. We decided to

give it a try - again.

Marker discrimination? Who knew??

All my daughter was required to bring with her when she started

Kindergarten, other than a backpack, was as listed on her class web

page:



A supply box labeled with your child's name

A pack of colored pencils

A pack of washable markers



The school will supply anything else that is needed.




Shortly before school started, Kevin had picked up her required

supplies. Since we had waited until last minute to pick up her things… Continue

A Terrorist Plot Unveiled…

It’s a tragic story. A community up in arms, frightened for their children, as one small body after another turns up. Flattened like pancakes. Stiff, furry tails sticking straight up in the air, a grim marker of a senseless death. You see them every day, littering the streets & sidewalks, while mothers scurry past shielding the eyes of the innocent children in tow, hoping to protect them from such a horrific sight. Along the grassy boulevards, little furry sentinels keep watch, like an…

Back to School and Back to Blogging!

What a crazy, CRAZY month September has been! Almost 3 weeks ago, my daughter finally started Kindergarten and, can I just say, that I don't think I have ever been this busy, nor have I ever second guessed myself more in my life than I have now?



It all started with some busing issues (courtesy busing cut due to state budget cuts. Had to pay a $398 fee!), and then between fundraisers (more payouts. Eek!), and helping Raelyn adjust to going to school 5 days a week (never mind the BOTH… Continue

The Golden Rule…

I’m no stranger to the wonderful world of Kindergarten. This is my fourth foray in to the realm of refrigerator art, trips to the farm, & agonizingly annoying Letterland characters. And as many of you know, I have not taken kindly to having to send my last wee baby off to school this fall. Aside from the obvious reasons that any mother can relate to, there is another, far more compelling, reason as to why I was loathe to put her in the hands of the educational system. Those bastards…

Mom vs. Herself…

The biggest thing I’ve learned as a parent, is the biggest thing I struggle with the most as a parent. Because it demands that I engage in a constant inner struggle with the very fabric of my being. Here’s the lesson…BEFORE I give in to my immediate reactions, stop & ask myself: are MY opinions/actions/decisions what’s best for THEM?? It’s usually not…thus the struggle. Having to back down, bite my tongue, stay out of it, go with the flow, often requires a massive dose of happy pills…
