Yep, I'm a bad blogger

Well, that's what you get with three kids, a full-time job, hubby, a dog, and (now) three gerbils--a fight for the computer and no time to blog. I guess I should be happy I don't have to fight for the computer with the animals (that would be the dog and gerbils; NOT the hubby and children, but I digress).

The elementary school my children attend has hired me as an kindergarten assistant. Love the job. It's funny. When I planned my future, I never thought "Get your finger out of your nose. There's no gold up there" would be a phrase I would use with great frequency. I've learned life has a way of throwing curve balls at you when it comes to kids.

Donovan made a perfect score on his TAKS test. YEAH!! You don't know how his teacher and I sweated while he was taking it. Why the sweating? The kid made a 49 on a practice test (benchmark) because he didn't finish it! ARGH!! Sometimes I think he does stuff like that to get even for all the broccoli we make him eat for dinner. I also think he eats beans for the same reason. The child will eat three bowls of beans for dinner without blinking an eye. By midday, the teacher is asking me what he had for dinner. Oddly enough, her eyes are watering and a strange green fog is hovering over her classroom. Go figure.

I'm home today because my little one isn't feeling well. She was sick right before going to school. Poor little one. She went right to sleep after I put her back to bed--that's how I know she's not faking. If she was faking, she'd be up, watching TV, asking for hot tea, crackers, and anything else her little mind can conjure up.

Well, I'm off to catch up on laundry. Oh, joy!
