One Chicago mom's attempt to keep an accurate log so her kids will have something helpful to show the therapists.
Too funny! My son and my daughter couldn't be MORE different from each other. And I'm not talking about the 14 inches of height difference or even their chromosomes. They were born one year and one day apart and raised in the same environment, yet they might as well have been raised on separate planets.-andi
How does this happen??? Baffles me. Not that a little variation can't be interesting sometimes, but it really messes with my parenting playbook!
You sound so erudite even when you are humorous. "Lackadaisical" is a great word. I love your vocabulary. I picked up "shanghaied" from your last post; although I knew what it meant it wasn't in my working vocabulary and now it is. Thanks. My two cents. I think that you and your friend are both right. It is BOTH nature and nurture. I will be substituting for almost two weeks now in a special education class. These students need to be nurtured, whereas your three sons sound bright enough to learn on their own with parent supervision.
Thank you, Carol! I really admire all the nurture you provide your students. I fear I'd be leaving them to their own devices. Reason #408 why I'm not in education...
Wait, did someone say "Shanghaied"? Because I say "Veniced" all the time, and by "Veniced" I mean that my bathroom flooded. I also say "Alaskad" and that translates to that The Husband left the windows open in the dead of winter and gave us all frostbite. I never knew other people used cities as verbs!!! I am so Canadianed about that!xxoMOVps-- are you wearing a SCRUNCHIE in that photo, Mar??? You just Nebraskad me with that one
shhhh...how are you the ONLY one who noticed I'm wearing a scrunchie?? Do you work for the FBI's photo investigation team or something??
Snickers? Did you keep a hidden stash? Yum! By the way, I bought some Nutella the other day and it made me think of you! I shouldn't mention it though because now I want to go downstairs and eat some more. I think I WILL! Ha!
Thank you and keep posting those new baby pics! I LOVE THEM!!! Congrats again, lady!
