al..most...there...

Two more days till summer vacation! I am definitely more excited than the kids. I'm more excited than when I was a kid. I was in no way prepared for how much work school would be for me as a parent or for how personally I would take the grades. I sat there for 2 1/2 hours with a whiny kid! I want my A, dammit! Oh, excuse me. I mean, I do so want to see the kids do well. (So they can afford the therapy they will need to deal with their mother issues.)

I am killing the TV this summer. I am terrified and excited by this experiment. As someone who is most comfortable with the companionable babble of the set in the back, I am so curious to see what we all do without it. (All but Shawn that is. The day I called to actually cancel the cable service, he had me call back an cancel the cancellation. I'm not telling the kids.)

Really, Sean? Seriously! It's only 2 months! I say you go girl! With all the work we do at home, we may as well just home school! Then I wouldn't have to deal with the fist throwing first graders! FIRST GRADERS!!! Fat and bloody lip at the school play anyone? I think NOT! Let's start that not so hippie commune my friend. I DARE YOU! XO

Can we have mini-goats? If so, I'm in. Oh, and exactly who was handing out smackdowns at the play?
