* It's 93 degrees out there. And I have only one window AC unit. *flops over dramatically*
* I love my daughter. But if she plays the soundtrack to Hairspray one more time... NYARGH. Every day. On repeat.
* zarhooie: she wears the pendant you made out of scrap wire frequently. :)
* I love my daughter. But I hate having to constantly nag her into doing her homework. She spent a little over half an hour reading (one of the Alice books you sent, penmage - thank you!), then retreated upstairs (to the tune of "Good Morning Baltimore"). After about an hour (my brain does weird time-lapse things), I looked up her homework. Hm. Lots of homework tonight. Went upstairs to find her drawing. Have now retrieved her and am more actively supervising.
I have nothing against reading and drawing. I think they're great. I hate having to say "Put down the book." But she's got to get her homework done, man.
