What's been making TeacherMommy giggle this week? Glad you asked.
A "letter of appreciation" from a former student for Teacher Appreciation Week:
Dear Ms. TeacherMommy,
U made me learn how 2 right bettr. eye din't thenk u wood help me 2 right as good as eye do now!
Sincerely, Steve H. :)
A letter from daycare I found sitting on the dining room table when I returned to the house last night, obviously left there via the ex for my
Dear Mr. or Mrs. TeacherMommy,(The kicker? DramaBoy wrote his name at the bottom too. IT'S HIS FIRST BEHAVIORAL CONTRACT, PEOPLES.)
Today DramaBoy did not choose good choice at naptime, so we are sitting down and talking about what he chose to do instead. DramaBoy has told me that at naptime we are supposed to be quiet and stay on our cots. DramaBoy told me instead he was playing around and not listening to the teacher. I have asked DramaBoy if tomorrow he will make better choices and listen to the teacher when she tells him to be quieter and he says he will try but might need me to sit by him, to which I agreed. If he makes good choices tomorrow at the end of naptime we will draw nice pictures and write a good letter.
From the car on the way to school/work this morning:
DramaBoy: Mama, do you like Hannah Montana?
TeacherMommy: No, I don't really like Hannah Montana very much, baby.
DramaBoy: But why don't you like her? Girls LIKE Hannah Montana!
Gems gleaned from going over rough drafts of the paper affectionately known as The Bitch:
Harriet Beecher Stowe aroused many people through her very famous and controversial book, Uncle Tom's Cabin.(I can't help but wonder--did the first of those have anything to do with the slave driver's stickiness in the second? I know. Ewwwww.)
This theme was completely utilized towards the end of Uncle Tom's Cabin when the beloved hero, Uncle Tom, is brutally beaten to death by a viscous slave driver.
Through Twain's life, his experiences and wisdom seldom come, molded the modern author into the sculpture he is today.
And the fourth thing that's made me giggle?
All the snarky, funny, wonderful comments and emails and texts and whatnot my friends and family have been sending. I big puffy heart you all.
