I have DS's Kindergarten evaluation today. He's more than ready, but sometimes he doesn't feel like participating and just won't. I'm nervous he might do that when they evaluate him. I told him if he does a good job, I'll buy him a donut after. No Shame!!

$700 for a damn phone?! That is $100 less than my mortgage. Who the hell spends that kind of money on a damn cell phone? That's just crazy! There's no way our combined income would allow for such a discretionary (and careless) purchase.

I found chocolate tortilla chips at the store. At first they tasted funky but now they are addicting! They need something else to go with them cause they are kinda boring on their own.

A proud braggy mommy moment for me: Went to my ds6 parent/teacher conference and ds is doing so well. SO well that his kindergarten teacher is advancing his reading curriculum to first grade reading level. He's the only kid in his class who knows ALL of his shapes, only one in his class who knows how to count by 10's past 100, and the only kid in his class who has had almost perfect attendance (if it wasn't for him getting strep throat a month ago, he would have had perfect attendance). I started teaching him some cursive and he's almost written his first name in cursive. He is just so smart. Really really smart. I'm so proud of him.

I went back to college. Grants paid for most of it because our income was low. Now we have full health insurance instead of paying out of pocket. We're making extra payments on the house and paying off the credit card in full every month. It was worth going back to school, and it is worth sacrificing things like being able to volunteer for field trips. Investing in yourself and your future is worth it.

I need to shake this bad mood I'm in. I'm so irritated and I even feel a bit angry. And there's no reason why. No argument with DH, kids are nice and quiet, just one of those things I guess. Tomorrow can't come soon enough.

My 7 ear old's loose tooth is hanging by a thread. He screams like he's being murdered if I even ask to look at it but in all seriousness I could probably pull it in his sleep and he'd never know.

I don't believe in the five second rule. One second, maybe. Past that, no way!

I definitely think it's not a good idea to go deeply into debt to go to college. I'm encouraging my son to do his best in school and to consider both college and trade school. He can live at home while he pursues either of those. We have two good state universities in the area within driving distance. He could go to community college and transfer. He might qualify for grants. If he wanted to study a trade, or become a journeyman or apprentice, I would support that too. I've made it clear that if he wants to live on his own while going to school that he would have to work to pay for it. He's ten years old but I am preparing him for reality, and the reality is that without some kind of higher education or certification, there isn't much out there. College isn't the golden ticket, but I am making it clear that, when the time comes, he needs to have some kind of realistic plan.

I went to my kid's open house tonight. The science projects were all on display. My son made crystals from ammonium phosphate. When I got there they were missing. Some little *$&#@ stole his crystals! He's keeping a good attitude about it. He told me he was "disappointed" but that it was okay. I'm raising a good kid.
