Lizzy and I are reading the Encyclopedia Brown books, because I dug out my old one and she loved it. They're great books that help her learn problem solving and critical thinking, and lead to lots of good discussions about th...

I really enjoy hearing about your smart kidlets. And your employer is awesome!

I may be That Parent, although I tried to make it clear in my email to the Transportation department that I am not usually That Parent who thinks her little darlings can do no wrong.

Let's face it; kids can be annoying little twerps. But if normal kid annoying-twerp behavior bugs you, you probably shouldn't be driving a school bus. Or you should at least get some sensitivity training rather than make small children cry.

We shall see...

Your small annoying twerps don't seem like they'd be any more annoying than average.

I would really like for this cold to go away now. Via deity, scientific endeavor, whatever; I don't care. Just nuke it from orbit, please, however you like. It's the only way to be sure.

I agree Miss J.
Is there a death by cold? If so, that may be the cold I have.

Because you just can't... not always
When Abby was little, maybe three, not long after Laston and I met, he made her cry by singing the Rolling Stones' You Can't Always Get What You Want. He likes to suggest that she was spoiled - and she may have been, a bit - ...

It's challenging, isn't it?  We've had a lot of change at home lately, and my wriggler has been mostly ok with it.
But then last night he totally lost the plot about something (setting the table - a new chore he's been very excited to do up until now) and we had a melt-down.
I'm a little relieved that he's back in holiday care for the rest of the week.

Still feeling coldy, but getting my Rhythm Parade on...
Yesterday was lazy. Today not so much. Oh, we're still hanging around home, doing a little housework, like laundry and dishes and such. And we still have the TV on. But the difference today is that I got at least two of the W...

Abby, Lizzy, and I are going Into the Woods.

And they both wanted to badly enough that they paid for the rental. Children with diverse musical tastes rock.

And it is now established that Lizzy's attention span is (barely) long enough for Maleficent but not for the entirety of Into the Woods. She has about an hour and a half in her for live-action fantasy...

Encyclopedia Brown holds up surprisingly well. My first-grader adores it, and our copy of it is older than +Laston Kirkland - it was published in 1963!

I forgot how much I enjoyed The Road to El Dorado until I shared it with my children this evening.

Of course, in spite of it being animated, my periodic Hollywood Crush on Kevin Kline may influence me in this.

On this spring break day, with Abby's cold getting better and mine getting worse, we're spending the day introducing Lizzy (7) to The Sarah Jane Adventures.

Sometimes you just need a whole day off...
Today is the first day of Spring Break, and the girls and I (with some participation by Laston) have spent it doing, well... nothing much. I mean, some dishes, some laundry, and Abby did some weeding of the lawn before I even...

As someone said once in a bad movie full of stereotypes, "True That".

Introduction
JennTheGamerMom here! Also known as GrumpyJenn - but I'm really not, much.

I blog at Out of the Mouths of Gamers' Babes (and this is babes in the children sense; get your mind out of the gutter)
I'm socially liberal, fiscally moderate, going to school online, writing for fun (but alas, not profit), working full time, and being a Mom (it's not a job; it just is).

I don't mind text-based smut or NSFW, but audio-video NSFW will get you uncircled and possibly blocked; I have small kids hanging around me and my laptop quite a bit.
