Hello mamas ... wanted to check in with everyone. We're doing good over here at the present time. Cole did get a postcard from his teacher a couple days ago so now we know what class he's in for the upcoming year. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet, to be honest. From what I've been able to discern from other parents, this teacher, as one mom put it, "doesn't tolerate any clowning around".

It's like he's an animal, and can smell our indecision, our waffling. Okay, ladies, two things we need some input on tonight: Dealing...
