The kids have been back at school for a week now. So we are in full swing as far as homework is concerned. So while I’m cooking dinner Tiger is sitting at the kitchen table and this is what it sounds like:
Tiger: ‘I’ll start with the hardest homework first’
me: ‘that’s a good idea, what will that be?’
Tiger: ‘the writing…. I have millions of words to write’
‘ I hate my teacher’ ‘who does this, gives so much homework’ ‘ it’s not fair’
‘I wish I was 22’
Tiger: ‘then I could drink red bull’
‘look at my sexy body’ …. quoting Fat bastard from Austin Powers
Tiger singing: ‘you can’t stop the music’ ‘you know that hey?’
me: ‘come my boy do your writing, the faster you do it your sooner you’ll be done’
Tiger: ‘I hate my teacher, I’m going to kill myself’ ‘I’m going to be here until after midnight’
me: ‘don’t say that! your teacher is only doing her job’
And so it carries on and on and on ….. and he is only in 2nd grade! How we are going to make it to the end of high school is beyond me at this point.
Cat on the other hand has not had any homework yet, we are still waiting for them to get their school books. There was a delay with the stock so none of the 4th graders have books yet. According to the school it will be sorted by Friday.
Meanwhile, I haven’t posted about the weather in a while (see how smoothly I changed topics there) and today summer is truly gone. It’s raining and grey and dull. The good thing is that Starbuck have started selling their fall coffees. I treated myself to an Apple crumble latte this morning …
What else, o yes I mentioned the other day that I was getting bored with my red hair but didn’t know what to do….. well I changed it on Saturday, what do you think:
Yes, I realize it's quite a drastic cut but I like it. It's also really cheap to maintain and Himself loves it. The kids, well they don't like it all that much but they'll get over it.
So what is happening in your life?
