Ah well, that'd be the place for DD. Last night the babysitter asked if she had any boyfriends in kindy. She said, "No, I don't have a boyfriend. Pretty much all the boys in my class are into me." 

Whether she qualifies for the gifted program or not, it's nice to know her self-esteem isn't an issue...and no, no I'm not looking forward to her teen years. SIGH.

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

Ah the town car... those were the good old days... so very pretentious, so very mean.. so very very mockable... yet I always felt like if I"d had the chance to have a bottle of wine with her we would have been pals... even though I'm just a poor hick from the froze north

[quote=bordwithyou]Yes, well, Jams doesn't believe in the existence of gifted kids, bad teachers, mediocre schools, or, last I heard, the cost-of-living index. It's no wonder her policy recommendations do not mesh with those whose educational policy is grounded in what some people might refer to as external reality.[/quote

Also doesn't believe in Head Start and giving at risk children a proper preschool experience.

Honestly Peacy, I worry for the kids who don't have parents as advocates working with the school and teachers to get the best education for their kids.  Every child deserves to have their parent be an advocate and take an active and engaged role in their children's education and to not just sit back and let the school lead the way.  Even a very good public or private school can't provide 100% of a childs education and as parents we shouldn't let them even if they could.  IMO.

-what does your poster name mean?  It popped up when I returned in Jan!  I used to be a version of "Tinder." 

-what is your favorite room in your house?  living room

-what is your favorite sandwich?  it's been a long while ~ between 3 slices of white bread: a healthy slattering of peanut  butter, then jelly, then bread, then more jelly, then cream cheese, then bread.  White bread.  Since then, no favorites really.
