Ahhh Children Are So Honest!

There is always that one time when you might be in the store and there is a old person and your child has to point them out and say "oh my gosh that person is so old!" yea totally embarrassing! So I want to let you in on some funny, witty, honest comments I have been told this last week. Oh and look it's only Tuesday!

"Mama why is your hair black and purple?". "Well alora I love to dye my hair fun colors." "Well mama then if you want it like that maybe you should cover ups your silvery hairs."

"Denise why is there a hole in your pants? Is it because your legs are fat?"

"Denise I went to school today. I told them everyone farts even my babysitter."

And the Best I saved for last...
"Mommy your boobs are so large. Do they hurt when you let them hang down on your belly?"

:) anything good your kids say this week?

Preschools Without Structure...

If I am paying hundreds of dollars a month for a preschool my child goes to two-three times a week for a few hours I want them to learn, have fun, listen and behave. I mean that's me you might disagree but what else would you want from school?

I know this preschool that ha no structure what so ever. Basically the kids run around all day doing whatever they want. Now this is a conversation between a mom and a teacher I heard.
Mom "Oh this is a beautiful story book and drawing it go with it!" Teacher "oh Micheal didn't want to listen to the story so I just let him go and play with the blocks."
Ok so the kid drew a picture, where mind you he is 4, of a brown scribble. Like took his anger out on a crayon scribble. Ok some 4 year olds are not artist of course but even Alora who hates to paint, color anything crafty will do what she is told and attempt something. Clearly this kid was give a paper and crayon and that's it.

This kid was allowed to do whatever he wanted while the entire class was listening to a story. So that was when I was dropping a kid off. So I stayed to observe the things going on in the class room. It was chaos! No structure nothing. I later had a chat with the teacher where I asked her what the day was like and what the children were allowed to do. Basically her response was.
Well we have a schedule see it here but they are allowed to explore anything they want and are never made to do anything on this schedule. ARE YOU F'in SERIOUS?!
I believe even at the age of 3-4 a child should sit for story time, be at the table during snack time, listen and get ready to go outside with their class. What is this crazy Crap?
Am I being to strict? I don't think so I mean come on don't you make your child do stuff at home? My children, husband and I are at the table eating together! This gets me steaming! So basically these kids have no structure and when they come home are off the wall and don't think they have to listen. Like I heard another mom say "Well Sally here will be running the show in no time if they handle a class this way." She was the only mom who thought the way I do apparently! God I hate snobby people who just let their kids run ragged...

What are your thoughts on this?

And I just want to put out there this is not our preschool! We love the structure of our preschool and the trouble they are in when they don't listen! A firm hand is welcome and needed in some cases! (and no not spanking people.)

Thankful Thursday *week 1*

I want to start this thankful Thursday so that I can remind myself week after week of one thing I am thankful for that happened during the week. It is always easy to say, "I am thankful for my children." "I am thankful for my spouse." "I am thankful for my family." Etc Etc. However it is harder to pin point one thing during the last 7 days to focus on being thankful about. So over the next couple of months I will be posting every Thursday something I am thankful for that happened the week before. Please feel free to comment on here on what you are thankful for this week! Funny, Serious, Sad, Everything goes.

I am thankful for the woman who pulled up next to me at the red light singing the LOUDEST she can and noticing me singing as loud as I can to the same song! We then proceeded to bop our heads and wiggle our bodies while in a weird kind of sing off.

I am thankful for this because this made think if even for a minuet that this world is as happy as a song, as sad as a song, as scary as a song, as playful as a song or just everything like a song. A song can come in many ways many genera's. Songs are about life no matter if it is good or bad. Songs can express everything! It pretty much kicks arse.

So woman in your silver Honda Mini Van if you are reading this YOU ARE WHAT I AM THANKFUL FOR THIS WEEK!
Crazy bad singers in minivans like myself :)
