each year I buy 356 pens and pencils one for each day of year

I have 1 pen left and zero pencils, what the heck happens to them

My coffee tastes like crap, my tea is not much better

my kids grow an inch a week after buying them new clothes and shoes

My 8 year old girl is now 5 foot 6 and refuses to stop growing for longer than a day

my puppy is 55 pounds at 6 months and has now discovered that he can jump a 6 foot wall to go find me or the kids when we leave

the puppy also thinks that eating poop is part of his diet, any poop, be it rabbit , coyote, his own etc

The puppy also thinks that when you run a bubble bath and leave the room that he should guard it by sitting in said bubble bath

my old dog just wants some peace and quite

my ex is a wanker, that is why he is an ex

I bought another house and out of everyone I know, only 2 bothered to ask me about it or say congrats

my youngest is not conforming to school at all and I am waiting with baited breath for the expulsion notice

my youngest thought it was a good idea to stand on the bathroom sinks and school to shout at a cricket

Also thought it was a good idea to stick his head through the metal barred gate at school promptly getting stuck

I feel fat, even my fat clothes feel fat

Also got a case of waking up at 2.38am for the last 3 days, i am tired

no one ever calls just to say 'hi' anymore, they always want something

I think I am pms'ing

so i think that is it so far today! whoohooo and it is only 7.58am!

You're first problem is that you are buying 9 too few. . .. . .

DAMN IT, see that is why you get when you are sleep deprived!!! LOLOLOL

It's a choice to see the downside or the upside.

Life always has bumps in the road.

You *have* a house, you *have* great kids, your ex is, well.....your ex!

Another day above ground, it's *ALL* good!

As far as the pens and pencils?

There's a special place in Hell for the f*ckers that steal 'em!

Oh I know Jeb, just once in a while I like to write the whole lot down, I am just fed up today, tomorrow will be better!

This is great if you have cats. You never need to clean the kitty box.

2.0 Get a percolator, add some honey to the tea or drink water. That chicory stuff in the bulk tin is floor sweepings anyway.

13.0 Stuck you say? It could be worse, at least you could yell at him whilst the fireman brought the shears to cut him out :) BTW this fireman can help erase all memories of 9.0 above...

Congrats on the new house.

Thank you all,

aye aye aye

just got a note home from school.

Charlie put stones up his nose twice.

"what the heck am I going to do with this child?????
11/05/2009 05:39:20 PM · #17
love him, and squeeze him, and pet him, and call him George?

I'm not sure what else, but start with a deep breath. . .

eta: did he get in trouble for that? cuz, I can see them letting you know in case he gets a sinus infection or something, but kids stick things places. it's part of being a kid. not trouble worthy, IMO.

(Story -- two years ago, my nephew and two of his buddies thought it would be kinda fun to "skip class" and go exploring around the school. so they did. they also got into big trouble, which i didn't find appropriate. why? they were five. in kindergarten. my question was how in the world did a teacher and her assistant "lose" three kids. did this not alarm someone other than the parents and me? especially kids that had a presence like brooks and his buddies did. -- and yes, I HAVE been a public school teacher, at the elementary level.)

I have serious misgivings about his teacher to be honest, he breaks a crayon, he gets written up, a pencil the same thing, touching another student, breaking a toy car that he stood on that he didn't see, not raising his hand in class. 3/4 of them I actually laugh at (inside my head) but tell him not to do that again as his teacher doesn't like it. The other 1/4 he deserves (like climbing onto the bathroom sink)
\\

He is Charlie and he won't be broken by her, but I am really beginning to think she is trying her hardest too break his will. Time for a school conference I think

Cowboy, i drove by a huge roadside ad today for border patrol 1/877usbphelp(i think, i was going 90) and here is a website that may help you out right now //jobsearch.usajobs.opm.gov/

we've talked about how your charlie and my kristi are soulmates (or twins separated at conception, thank God), but he also sounds A LOT like my 8 yo nephew Brooks (whom Kristi is also like). My brother and his wife have had many of the same experiences as you.

He breaks a crayon and he gets "Written Up"???????

SERIOUSLY time for a conference!

She's an elementary school teacher, she's supposed to be working with these kids to help them socialize and understand how things work.

What kid is going to understand being written up for being......a kid?

If there are special needs, that's one thing, but still, she isn't handling it well.

She's supposed to communicate with you if there are issues.

Give 'em Hell, Jules!

He sounds like a 'real' boy ! I cant believe that 'teacher'

I remember my mother telling me I used to eat coal and earth !

Hope your day is better today

You must quickly adopt my mothers motto, as she had 3 boys to deal with: BOYS WILL BE BOYS

Its perfect for school problems, fighting, mischief, etc.
