Purposeless Prose

  • When Eliza goes to day care in the morning my dad sings his version of the popular Amy Winehouse song...Rehab

    They tried to make me go to daycare but I said 'no, no, no'

  • It is Wednesday evening and I feel like it is Friday. I am too pooped to pop.

  • On Sunday I was very ill from not eating enough before I took my antibiotic. I learned that as a mother I can multitask. aka throw up while holding my daughter. When my MIL arrived to help out we were sitting on the bathroom floor. I was too dizzy to carry her up the steps so we just sat down.

  • Papaya is tasty

  • Word verifications exist solely to annoy me

  • If nervousness is selfish energy than I am the most selfish person alive.

  • Today after I put Eliza down for a nap a bird flew right into the window and made the loudest smack. I think it was like a turkey vulture or something. OK- maybe it was more like a robin- but I swear the sound was deafening. It almost woke her up. ALMOST! When I peeked in her mobile was still shaking from the impact. This actually happens quite often at my moms as her sun room is mostly made of glass..

  • Whoever decided Kindergartners should take the Terra Nova should be stoned in public. I will throw the first stone.

  • People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. DAMN@!*&

  • Jason Castro rocks and I can listen to this song over, and over, and over

I love "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" that version! I made a movie of all the activities my first graders do and how they've grown; I used that song and version (by Israel...). It made my movie even more emotional! I agree, Kinders SHOULD NOT take standardized tests! That picture of Elizer is SOOOOO beautiful! Who took it?

Marlene said...

oops I meant to type Eliza, not ELizer. I have a student Elizer in my class.

Lori said...

the multi-tasking comment is too funny... hope you are feeling better!

I totally agree about K's taking any type of standardized test.. thank you so much No Child Left Behind... NOTTTT

I hope Eliza does well at day care and your week flies by

Birds used to fly into my sliding glass doors all the time. The problem is the bird doesn't see the glass and tries to fly through it. You can get decals to put on the windows. This will save the birds' lives and your sanity.
