Re: Basically it's Thursday

Gahhhhhh!

After pulling myself together and dragging my maths schooling up from the depths to help Shannon with her homework Heiner walks in and tells her to not use the times table, to just add. It's not about doing it the easy way...It's about doing it the right way!!!!

After talking to him and explaining while that might be the easiest way it's not good for her to do that, she needs to learn the method of using her times tables for this question. That she needs to put the numbers into the proper question from so she can see what she's times'ing with what.....and he says fine. And as soon as I turn my back he says we're going to to do this the easier way.

Well thanks! You just f'ed up in a big way chappy. You have just won yourself 4 kids maths homework for the rest of their school lives....because I'M NOT DOING IT ANYMORE!

Re: Basically it's Thursday

Anyone got a favourite smoothie recipe?

I remember Mel had one a while back. Raspberry I think?

I made a banana pineapple smoothie. Everyone loved it except for Fynn.

Aiming to get the new routing in swing. It's not too bad just now.

Fynn and the girls get ready for bed by 6:45pm,
Fynn brushes his teeth and the girls make sure their room is tidy.
Then it's time to sing Twinkle twinkle with Fynn and he goes to bed at 7pm.
7pm and the girls get to watch their program.
The girls brush their teeth and go to their room for story time.
Lights out at 7:45-ish.

It's working well...except for Cami and her ADHD-ness making it impossible for her to be quiet after Fynn's gone to bed. So there's a lot of trying to keep her quiet and sitting. It's not really helpful for her to be jumping about all over the place when she's about to go to bed. No one sleeps well if they've been doing sport minutes before going to bed.

Re: Basically it's Thursday

Hola mamacitas. I've spent the whole day looking for someone to tar my driveway.

I did hit Target today and boy you were right. The girls' clothes suck. The shorts on clearance now look like Daisy Dukes. And there was nothing in the boys' section in Ian's size. For anything.

Good job janine on achieving Nirvana. I love it when that happens.

I have been looking and looking for a fall wreath to put on our front door. Everything is either $40, or if it's cheaper it is sparse and spindly looking. So I went to Dollar Tree today and bought a dozen springs of faux flowers and some florist wire, and bound them to a wreath form I already had at home. I'm pretty dang impressed considering where I got all the materials.

I really really want to take a nap. But I need to take the kids to their afterschool thing. And get my chance to go to the really cool shopping center. But I may just nap in the parking lot, I'm so tired.
