1. What is one thing you will spend money on? One thing that you won't?

2. Retirement money-I was watching Suze Orman the other night (don't really care for her lol) and she does a segment of "How well am I doing" and there was a 38 year old woman, married with 3 kids and she gave her a low grade. She had about $100,000 in her retirement fund and she said at her age, that was too low. Is there a goal (no need to put $ amounts down as I know that is a very personal thing) you have by a certain age or goals you had by certain ages and do you think that amount is good or bad for that age?

3. Weekend plans?

Yes, I'm just a babysitter there.  I wouldn't care about school if I just kept them home I guess.

Are your kid's learning disabilities fixable?

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

Does your DD have a gym locker spring? My girls take sneakers to school and leave them in the lockers there, I don't like it b/c they don't ahve a second pair to run around in at home but by the end of the school year they do come home! My kids take llbean lunch bags to school (did I just drag llbean into debate? Lol!) and they've left them there more than a couple times, They end up in the lost and found, their classrooms or the front office. Who wants a lunch sak anyway... :)

Only in the minds of the Italian judiciary.

You orginally put borrowed in quotes as if to imply she took them without permission.  Why doesn't she wear her own shoes for track and gym? How do you lose shoes? DId she come home barefoot that day? 

Does she turn in homeworK?  Does she remember things to do with her friends?  Is she just forgetful when it comes to you?    If her ADHD is under control wouldn't she not be forgetting things?

Given your comments, it was a pretty fair question.  I would hope that substitutes in any school would consider them an educator and not just a space holder.

On the mobile app, yes. On the regular interwebz? I have no problem with the quote feature. Works extremely well for me.

I'm trying to consider the source of the comment and give the benefit of the doubt.  I'm not sure it's working.

As the mother of a kid with severe memory issues, I am just going to say here that the assumptions behind your questions are coming through loud and clear, and they are offensive.

Are you being sarcastic or do you really think of yourself as a babystitter while subbing?  Do you have a teaching degree?
