the art of passive resistance

J has been going to his new school for three weeks now. He likes that we stop off at a bakery on the way to school each morning. He likes that there's no homework on weekends and there was no homework during spring break. The lovefest ends right there.

The lunch lady called the other day to tell us that he doesn't each the free breakfast, and he also hasn't been really eating much for lunch. Well, I suppose stopping at the bakery on the way to school doesn't leave him much of an appetite for the USDA approved free breakfast. Did I mention it was free? As for lunch, he tells me he drinks a carton of milk and eats a bag of carrot sticks--he says he's just not hungry at that time. He eats a big snack after school and a good dinner, so I'm not worried. But I guess they told him he needs to pick three items so that they can charge him for lunch. He added a pear to the carrot sticks and milk the other day and said it was ok. I think it is just fine he's somehow not eating the chicken nuggets, the meat patties, the pizza, etc. But, that's just my opinion.

We signed up for the virtually free afterschool programs for the spring term. It's our way of not having to pick him up until 5pm and hey, we don't have to pay $12 a day for the afterschool care program. On Wednesdays he had his choice of art adventure or soccer, and he thought for a long time and chose art adventure. This week, when the class met, he sneaked a book into the program and read during the art lesson. They were making paper crowns, he told us later. I'm sure the kindergarten kids had fun with it.

Today, the principal called to say that J had refused to go to music, and he was in her office, and she was unsure what to do. C talked to J, who had no real explanation for not wanting to go to music, and J agreed to go back to class. Sigh.

No one said it would be easy, that's for certain.

In other news, S is refusing to stand on her own. This is a skill marker she should have passed a few months ago, and frankly, she doesn't seem to be anywhere close to making this one happen any time soon. She can do lots of interesting fine motor things--feed herself, empty containers, try to scribble, take things apart, etc--but she's not into standing and walking. We're giving her another couple of weeks to figure this standing thing out before we do something about it. She did just discover that she can hold TWO things if she doesn't have to hold onto something for support. So...that's a good sign!

I guess with kids, it's always something...keeping us alert and making sure we're paying attention. So, here's some eye candy as a reward for your paying attention:

Happy spring, everyone!

A couple of family & friends, it has a couple of dozen CC numbers IIRC. The CC variety by by itself is usually a bit useless without the need of expiry date & CVV.

Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I've been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Cheers

This design is incredible! You definitely know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My website goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post's to be exactly what I'm looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content in your case? I wouldn't mind producing a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome website!

Heya this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it's driving me crazy so any support is very much appreciated.

Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Thanks

Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

Could not wait around for to help you redeem my best Main number of grey taller %anchor% in the mail and when they will turned up.....there was clearly several staints a single of one's %anchor%! :( Seriously at this moment, those $$$ they cost they are able to have already been wonderful.

Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Right now it appears like Wordpress is the top blogging platform available right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Cheers

With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd genuinely appreciate it.
