I heart Dr. Who and other random stuff

randomtuesday

 

My youngest is only 13 months old and is already constantly hunting my coffee. Why oh why do my children want to drink my precious coffee? Don’t they understand, I NEED my coffee, I need it in my cup, not on the floor or in their bellies.

I’m having trouble getting started on this new class, I suppose watching old episodes of Dr. Who when I should be studying might have something to do with that. I just can’t help it. I love Dr. Who.

I saw an episode of Diego (you know, Dora’s cousin) and they cleaned up an oil spill in the ocean with this vacuum thing. I hate preschool shows, they are so far removed from reality they make me want to vomit. Speaking of preschool shows why are all these pre-k cartoons running around without parental supervision? Dora and Diego run all over the world with talking animals, Max and Ruby don’t seem to have parents at all, those kids on Dragon Tales disappear for hours at a time and no one notices…the central theme of all of these shows must be parental neglect. Go on Kids, your parents are absent/neglectful they don’t care, it’s up to YOU to take care of everything!

 


Another class finished!

Love math 1

I finished my last math class this week. It’s a little bittersweet because I’m glad it’s done but I’m a geek and I love math so I’ll miss it a little. I’m actually surprised I got it finished on time because I’ve been sick and a couple of the little ones too. It’s been a long week. We’ve made some changes to the kids curriculum and we are loving it. I’ll be making a homeschool page on here when I find the time soon! I’ve got my girl hooked and she wants a blog (a video blog), because toys are just not enough these days. Some people’s children…

 


Random Tuesday Thoughts

Holy Crap (Fifteen Pounds of Candy)

The great candyfest is almost here, that means my totally ocd kids have too ask me how long until halloween at least 200 times a day. Even though there is a calender on the wall with the day clearly marked and my 8 year old has made dozens of paper countdowns over the last few weeks. Really, somebody save me.

Did I mention the ‘guess what I’m asking for’ game my 4 year old has started. It goes like this…”I want to play the game that goes round and round!” (computer game) What game is that you might ask, I did. Well it’s “THAT GAME THAT GOES ROUND AND ROUND” but I don’t know what sort of game that is or on which website full of preschool games it lives….

I would pack up and go to the park but there is no park other then the school, and school is in session. Driving 15 miles to the nearest public park is almost as bad as driving 40 miles for coffee.

It’s ok though, soon I will get to eat the baby’s Halloween candy and all will be better.
