So I sent D to the store with R for milk and bread. You want to guess what they came home with? Bread, soda and those frosted sugar cookies from the bakery. No milk. Ah I gota love him right?

I wish I could be there, but that is in the middle of bedtime madness around here. Do you have someone to henna your belly yet?

Just a modifiedartist.gif trying to find some peace and regain my balance.

So, the fingerprinting thing is not an APS thing it is a charter school thing. Aps you only have to print once in 12 years (basically the full school time) APS also does not require current licensed teachers/subs to fingerprint to volunteer either. So that is our punishment for sending our kids to charter schools.

But at least they're getting a better education. I can't volunteer in the classroom this year because I missed the Abuse Awarness program and the two remaining classes in the state are in Belen and Los Lunas, which I am not driving to on a Saturday morning to be there by 8. Oh well. Next year I'll probably remember to sign up for that, lol.

Do you have a copy of that somewhere? Because we've been hearing all along it's not us it's big bad APS.

I am so glad M isn't a runner, we went to Target this morning and when I pulled my keys out in the parking lot the key chain somehow fell apart and ALL the keys went everywhere. So there I was with two bags in one arm M in the other the car locked and keys all over the parking lot.

S2 is finally getting better about running off in parking lots. But that situation would have been difficult. He'd either be picking up keys and mouthing on them (yuck!) or he'd be wandering as he looked around.

Doularn, I'll take the wooden blocks! I was thinking of getting some for Christmas anyway

That sucks emans! But you're right, at least you don't have a runner! N would have bolted! You saw how he was at the aquarium! Though in a parking lot he may have been suffiently confused and just stood there. I'd probably have grabbed a cart and strapped him in while I hunted for keys.

Crazy that would have been a good idea, why do I never think of those things in the moment.


ASF even his tantrums are cute.

heh, i wouldnt have thought of that either crazy. Emans - he even threw himself on the concrete and banged his head loud enough for me, elm and crazy to hear. I had to struggle to get him in his carseat! He was asleep by the time we got home though.

I'm glad to hear he went to sleep, but yeah, that was a monster tantrum. S1 used to do that crap to me all the time about really random stuff. S2 has oddly been a lot more easy going in that department. Would've figured my most difficult kid wouldn't be the one who tantrumed?

Elm they have to throw you a curve ball every now and again or you might start to think you know what your doing

So Target at least by me has all their summer hippie tie dye tee-shirts on sale, I got one of the more expensive ones for 6 dollars. Sigh, why is it cheaper and prettier to buy than make.

I know why can't it save us money to make things. Speaking of tantrums A threw some royal ones on her field trip that i was so kind to go with her on. Her teacher said she had never seen any behavior from her. She even took her outside. A screamed and hit her. So... I am not going to her class for a while. Way too stressful, draining and embarrassing. We are probably going to start horse therapy again. Just one more thing I dont need on my plate right now.

Anyways, the blessing is being changed to Sunday 7:30 if anyone wants to come.

Does she qualify for horse therapy? Or will Medicaid (or whatever it's called) pay for it? I know one lady who has the same time as us pays every single time and that has to suck. Incidentily, her daughter goes to the same preschool as A, E and C. Not sure which class she is in though. (Oddly enough, she also knows one of S1's teachers, which was just "It's a Small World" for me.)

ETA: I'll be out of town Sunday, but have fun. And call me if you have that baby! No Basho's Please!
