Z Moves Out of Special Needs

Got back from Z's SEP meeting...possibly the last one I'll ever have to go to. They've proposed final tests and data collection to officially re-classify him and mainstream the kid. I'm excited. And I really want to say how much I love and appreciate the amazing work the school and his teachers have done for him.

Sometimes you edit with a red pen. Sometimes you edit with a machete, a blow-torch, a dull needle and three yards of knotted twine.

Anno Domini

Me: "Today is February 10th, Anno Domini 2014."
V: "Wha?"
Me: "Anno Domini--it means, in the year of our Lord. You know, because once Christians practically ruled the world."
V: "And then Mormons came along and ruined their day?"

I couldn't answer. I was laughing too hard.

A Little Peace and Quiet

Whenever I need a quiet evening, all I do is tell my boys to go clean their room. It never gets clean, but they leave me alone for HOURS.
