How we missed Disneyland’s Diamond Anniversary

1 Comment 15 June 2015

And I am happy about it!

See, we recently spent a small fortune planned a family vacation. Two days one night seven tickets and very little sleep at Disneyland! But, apparently we missed all the fun. As we travelled the week before the big 60th anniversary party. A party complete with new fireworks show, parade, and even a line of sparkly blue food. Continue Reading

Teacher mom part two

1 Comment 24 April 2015

Can you smell it?

Some may say it’s shame. Others a peace offering.

But, I prefer to call it an affirmation of constructive criticism. More simply put, chocolate chip cookies.

See, as a teacher and a mom it is inevitable that I am going to from time to time disagree with one or more of my children’s teachers.

And when asked to sign a set of tests while trying to rush four kids out the door, in time for the third grader to sing three songs in front of the entire school, on a day when the two kindergartners may possibly be nursing colds… Well, this one mama may or may not have been so inclined as to give that test a piece of her mind.

In orange colored pencil. No, not on a polite little sticky note, but right on the test paper.

Using, but not limited to, such words as clearly, and obviously while pointing out that directions where misunderstood.

Yes, I’m making a double batch this time.

And, yes I’ll send the dimpled three year old in with still warm baked goods in hand so she thinks knows it was all intended to be constructive, of course.

Anyone else ready for summer break? I know I am.

Diversity or damaging? Ryland Whittington’s story

1 Comment 16 June 2014

Recently, a set of parents in San Diego accepted an Inspiration Award at the 6th Annual Harvey Milk Diversity Breakfast. For a video of their little girl Ryland transitioning at the ripe old age of five into a boy.

The video subsequently went viral and was applauded by many as a break-through in being accepting and understanding parents of a transgender child.

But honestly, I think they crossed a thin line between reaching out to support other parents and abusing their own child’s trust. In fact I think they pretty much trampled all over it. Continue Reading
