Finally got a new cord to charge my lap top and I’m back!
Gearing up for NaNoWriMo 2014. Who else is?
Green tea is saving me today.
This fall I’m going to make an apple pie and it will look like this. Yup. OUAT season premiere party might have this for dessert. It might not but it might.
It could be worse. It’s venom could liquify your muscles so that it can slurp it up like a slushie or cause paralysis or eat away at your flesh and muscle like a brown recluse bite.
A praying mantis tried to get in my car in Fountain Square tonight. It was very curious. I sort of wanted to catch it and but it in the terrarium at my place. #becurious cc: @wildthingsdom
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Dr. Maria Montessori!
To the woman who founded the incredible education system for which my son now gets to be a part of!! Standarized, uniform-education (as I call it) would never have worked for my son, as it never worked out for me. The idea of “learn or fall behind” public school have impairs people in their education and subsequently their self-confidence and self-worth.
My son is a very active 4-year-old and in typical public school I feel he would have been ostracized, made to feel inadequate, and I would have been forced to put him on ADHD medication because America loves their medication band aid’s for everything.
At his school, Francis W. Parker 56, not only is he learning at his pace (slightly advanced when he’s able to concentrate) but he is given the free-reign to be a bouncy sitter — they have those medicine ball chairs for the kids who can’t sit still. Sometimes, people have to move to learn. Once he gets the bouncing out, he does his work and does it really well as I’ve noticed with his homework.
Thank you, Dr. Montessori! This mama and her boy are so happy and grateful for your work!
This just sent my OCD out of whack and now I feel incredibly anxious.
