There's No Crying in Baseball, But in Pre-K and Kindergarten.........

Remember the movie, “A League of Their Own” when Tom Hanks delivered that memorable line: “There’s no crying in baseball.” Of course, those angry words were uttered as he berated one of his players severely who then began to cry. I might be crying too after a tongue lashing like that.

Holiday weekend brings thoughts of daunting fall schedule ahead

It's a holiday weekend. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and I have the day off.

I should be ecstatic. Instead, I'm fighting the blues. It's silly, I know. But end-of-summer time always does this to me. I absolutely love summer. I love the sun on my face, I love my little flower garden, and I love the lazy, slower schedule.

Tomorrow, the kids go back to school. And that means it's back to packing lunches, helping with homework, volunteering in the…

How to be a Bad (Good) Mom!

What a Mom will do nowadays to help support and raise a child is much different than in years past when all one had to do was feed and diaper a child. The rest was just left to chance. It occurred to me this week as we are preparing (at my house) for ACT prep testing that there may be many of you who have not been down this road yet. As parents we must pick the right pre-preschool. This sets the whole education resume. One cannot have a bad Pre preschool experience otherwise it is homeless,…

Back in the Graduate School Saddle Again...

I’m about two thirds finished with my Master’s Degree in Counseling.  My sub-degree is in School Counseling.  I haven’t talked much about this side of my life because when this blog began, I was on summer break and started to focus predominantly on my writing.  However, my degree is something I am extremely proud of because growing up, my favorite phrase in school was, “I’m totally accepting of adequacy.”  I was perfectly happy to get B’s or C’s for grades.  If I didn’t love the subject…

Parent Involvement is a Must

With my oldest child finishing up the 2nd grade school year, I've been a little reflective on my involvement in his school life and wondering why more parents aren't actively involved.  My experience with my son's charter school this year has been rocky to say the least, and has forced me to make the decision to find a new school -- more on that in another post.  My 8-year-old son, Cameron, is a straight "A" student, never had a single bad behavior report and is loved by all the staff and…

New Kindergartners Day brings on wave of nostalgia - or is it more like envy?
