I totally agree with the taking care of husband=ew. He is a grown man and does not need someone in the home specifically to cater to his needs. DS is young and can't even change his own clothes, so obviously does need to be taken care of. Can't conflate the two! Once DS does not need fulltime care I'm going to be taking care of myself by picking up my rewarding and fulfilling career. I.don't.like.staying at home. Bleah.
And that is why standardized tests are ! Seriously, I hate them. Reminds me of when I too the CSET test (teaching subject test for history). It had an essay question on the Black Death which was great because I have a freaking master's degree and my emphasis is medieval plagues, death and dying. So I answered their crappily worded question (the premise of the question was dubious at best) and they gave me a three out of five. Probably because I pointed out the...
Oh gosh no! I was just checking actually to see if anyone posted. After 4:30 on weekdays is fine for me. Weekends it depends on what's up. I'm up in Sonoma County lots of weekends because my mom won't drive down to see me . Let's set a day. I'm wide open (read: no life) except for maybe Friday if I go back to the Foster City meetup (are you going to come too Ami?).

OP what I am most disturbed by is the fact your daughter is doing all those...
Look, as a teacher I've gotta say that when a student answers a question based upon an incorrect interpretation of the instructions it is because it was a crappily written assignment 9 out of 10 times. I think that the way your daughter answered it makes perfect sense. A good teacher will not use an opportunity like this to shame a student or tell them they are wrong...but to see what the child knows when the instructions are made more clear. So I think the teacher...
My kid speaks less than ten words (more like five) but he has the frustration noise I make down pat. And he uses it all the time (just like me )!
Will MDC content still show up in Google searches? I find that...creepy.
Ooooh...that looks great! If you're going to be knocking them out any chance we'll see them in a future MDC craft swap ?
I also really like Everett Alverez Jr. park too. Its off of Winchester kind of over by Valley Fair. They have a toddler and a kids structure right next to one another, and lots of good shade seating. Plus I have never found broken glass in the sand there like at the park closer to my house . I could certainly meet at Valley Fair...heck the play area is right by Starbucks . We could meet at the library too. There also is a cool children's section at the Rose Garden...
