sorry for the rant....

The meeting with my teacher went great! Kids are all good and the war hammer table was a HUGE hit! YAY kids!

You should have seen us in there! We're such a gong show AND we brought the dog. Lucky for me our teacher is amazing. She's flexible and fun and loves the kids (and dog)!

Maddy (my six year old) is not really reading yet which gives me a bit of worry. There's nothing wrong with her brain and she's very bright but oh so stubborn. I think she doesn't like being told what to do? (who do I know like that?) and she wants to be able to do thing well, first try (also... no idea who she gets that from!) The boys also didn't read well until at least grade two and now are both voracious readers, so I do know it will come. It's just hard to wait for it to come and frustrating fighting with her to practice:)

So onto my new rant.

Christmas shopping!

Which actually, I like doing. I love finding the perfect gift for someone, buying it and then watching them open it! I LOVE that! I don't like having a budget but then who loves that at Christmas time but I seem to always find something great for almost everyone.

What I HATE and I mean dislike so much it makes me want throw things and then drives me to drink?
Are you ready?

Shopping with my three year old!

Don't get me wrong, I love my three year old, just not in Winners! 'nuff said!

'nuff said, indeed. LOL.

Glad the meeting went well. Your six year old sounds like she has enough will to carry her far. I wouldn't worry too much (and I'm sure you don't).

Have a good one! Heidi

Shopping with a 3 year's enough to drive ANY mom to drink!

Happy Shopping!

Nope - I don't like shopping with any of my kids - they just need to stay at home! Have a good weekend - Kellan

I have to say that for me shopping with my toddlers is just fine, it is the 10 and 13 year olds that make me crazy! But thankfully I can leave them at home together for an hour or so!
Glad the facilitator meeting went well. I know how nerve wracking that can be. I can just imagine the craziness of your 4 plus puppy!

Wow, that is so exciting about the meeting with the facilitator. Someone in the school system who doesn't look down on homeschoolers? I haven't run into that but I am so glad yours is so cool! I totally get you on the running thing and wanting your daughters to just enjoy life and not worry obsessively about what they eat or how much they exercise, etc., but still live a healthy lifestyle with all those things. It's tough to find the balance. I think it's so cool that you're wanting to show them that balance!
