You Know Bush is in Trouble When Even Poppy Says Go Slow
US Department of Education Announces New American-English Standards
Okay, maybe a real post later. Maybe. sambear is sick. shadowkatt is sick. I don’t feel good, but I refuse to get sick, dammit. I need to get sambear out the door for his doctor’s appointment, which I’d be driving him to if it weren’t for the fact that I have a sick kid here too.
littlefirefae and real_pochacco are at school, but they got there late because they just won’t get themselves up and moving without a parent nipping at their heels constantly.
Oh—yesterday we learned that littlefirefae had forged sambear’s signature on a disciplinary note from school, and we got a lovely note from real_pochacco’s school letting us know that he has detention Friday. Because he bit another student. This is a 14-year-old, not a 4‑year-old. And it isn’t the first time he’s bitten someone, it’s just the first time he got caught. Yes, the other kid was out of line and has detention as well—but BITING?!
As none of the other approaches to explaining why it was so very wrong seemed to work, I pointed out that biting is unsanitary and could lead to broken teeth for him. Maybe that’ll stick. I rather doubt it, though.
Wait—that was a real post, wasn’t it? Just a very whiny one. Sorry.
