What plans lie ahead for May

Your kid comes home and says s/he wants to be homeschooled.  When you ask why she says because she doesn't like going to school anymore..  What do you do/say.....

If you were granted one wish what would it be

1.  May is always the busiest--dd1 bridging to Ambassador level in Girl Scouts.  Rehearsal/Recital weekend--busy busy!  Dd1 is in 3 classes & is doing 4 dances in the recital.  Dd2 is in one class, one dance.  My nephew is graduating.  My aunt is visiting to see the dancing & graduating.  School ends, so we'll get into summer mode.  I'm really planning on the snow to melt, it's getting ridiculous here.

2. There'd be plenty of discussion to see if it was a real problem or just a bad day.  If was a huge problem we'd try to help fix it.  Going to homeschooling to do that probably be unlikely.  Dd1 has actually expressed interest in going to a boarding school--not going to happen!

3.  5 billion dollars sounds about right.

Thank you thardy and I wish her needs were that simple. But I'm a huge advocate for her education and needs and school is pretty aware of where my defenses lie.

Mother's Day, Duh, I forgot!  I plan to keep my feet up that whole day, Lol.

What plans lie ahead for May -- Is it May? lol.  Let's see, we have coming up:
-- band spaghetti dinner/musical
-- band banquet
-- graduation (dd will play; we'll go to see friends' kids)
-- I have a 5k mud race
-- end of school
-- a possible work trip to Austin - although I'm trying to push that off to June
-- spring band concerts
-- my birthday
-- lots of little things
-- lots of "usual" things - excessive yard/gardenwork, etc

Your kid comes home and says s/he wants to be homeschooled. When you ask why she says because she doesn't like going to school anymore.. What do you do/say..... -- tough chit kid.

If you were granted one wish what would it be -- two new staff people for my office and the appropriate resources to match.

 I guess some kind of wondercure for bad chronic diseases - diabetes, MS, cancer etc.


Can you include SMA in your cures?  Because if you do, then you will have taken care of several of my wishes, and I can scale my wish back to just a lot of money.  ;)

What plans lie ahead for May Nothing in particular.

Your kid comes home and says s/he wants to be homeschooled.  When you ask why she says because she doesn't like going to school anymore..  What do you do/say..... I find out what the problem is and take steps to solve it.

If you were granted one wish what would it be Not sure, since I tend to overthink this kind of stuff. I guess some kind of wondercure for bad chronic diseases - diabetes, MS, cancer etc.

1. Similar to my plans for April.

2. If my child said s/he wants to be homeschooled, I'd suspect something was wrong at school.  If it were insurmountable, then we'd start touring the area private schools.  Maybe the Catholic schools too.  Some here are very good.

3. One wish?  I'll have to think about that.
