I think we're going to go out to dinner tonight...mainly because I'd never be able to sort through the mountain of stuff that came home today, in time to find the table underneath it all.
I can't promise this will still be true in a month, a week, or an hour, but right now, I can't wait for the boys to get home from their last day of school!
I agree with the first sentence.
However, I'm not sure that the reason for the dresscode is boys' distraction. Isn't it about appropriateness? There are clothes I'd wear to work, to school, to bed, to a party, to an interview, to church; and they are not all the same type of clothing.
Yeah, I'm stuck on these school shooting articles, AS WE ALL SHOULD BE.
"Gun violence should not be a normal hazard of being in school. It is unacceptable to trade the safety of our children for the right for free and unfettered access to arms...The problem is that any attempt to regulate guns—to enact a licensing system that would, as for a car, require a potential gun owner to pass a safety test, to require a universal background check—is immediately seen as an assault on Second Amendment rights [but] The equation is not “Dead Kids = Constitutional Rights.”"
I'm not trying to provoke a gun control argument (or any argument). I don't know the answer, but it has to stop.
No. No. No. This cannot be the statistic that defines our kids' school experience.
Pretty sure this is my award, since it wouldn't have happened without my watchful vigilance
The true dilemma of motherhood: having kids on different teams for Field Day. Who's it gonna be? Blue or Gold? Blue or Gold?!
Second grader thinks that if you get all your spelling words correct on Monday night that you shouldn't have to do spelling homework the rest of the week... I tend to agree.
"Uh-oh, dude, it's report card day. What's it going to say?"
"It's gonna' be all 'A's. Because I'm Awesome."
Well, we know there are no problems in the areas of self-esteem and humor...
