I am officially insane

Yes that is right I am insane. Tomorrow I go back to school as a student. I registered for two classes before the baby is born. I realized that If I finished two classes I get bumped to the next pay increase - so who couldn't use a raise in these economic times especially with a baby on the way. So I bit the bullet and signed up for classes, luckily they are online but this might infringe on my 8 pm bedtime or the fact that I am still sick with this pregnancy.

So the plan is to do a majority of the work after Owen goes to bed. I did take several classes when he was first born, but it was really easy to respond to an online message boards when he was sleeping and nursing.

So wish me luck I will try to keep up to date with the blog but if I disappear you know where I am - :)

Can I run over my students?

Okay not really BUT as I was leaving school today there were several boys (shocker I know) running in circles in the middle of a three way intersection. Seriously I just shook my head at them as they happily danced to the side and let the cars pass. I guess they are just happy about the 4 day weekend.

umm excuse me miss you look twelve?

How is it that my students think I am a middle schooler but yet the police can not be bothered to patrol the local high school

As we were driving by the high school today I notice about 30-40 kids smoking just off the school property - Where may i ask are the police - which has a station directly across the street - Seriously they look like they are twelve - I am sure there are a few that may have been 18 but seriously some police presence is that too much to ask when 1600 high schoolers start leaving the local high school

oh my

that is about all I have to say after getting this email from a friend - i hope she doesn't mind me sharing because it is so funny

"This is how I know I teach 8th grade boys.

Today in homeroom the students were asked to write three goals one for career, one for wellness and one for family. Along with those three goals they were to write 7 ways they can help themselves reach that goal.

One of my boys wrote for family that his goal was to have a wife and 2 kids.
His seven ways he can help himself get here were the following:
Be social
be social
Be social
get a girl friend
practice getting to base 1
practice base 2
practice base 3

I guess since he got to base three he didn't need to go for the home run!

Yep and he read it aloud to the class so everyone could here how he was going to practice getting a wife and 2 kids.

It's fun having 8th grade boys."

I am thinking that we shouldn't let him date our daughters

To where do i send curdling milk

Okay so today is a rare exception to the normal mommy day. I usually have Owen with me by this time and am busy trying to clean the house and get dinner ready - I get to go out tonight and I had to leave before my lovely man of the house would arrive home so Owen is still at the sitters - what I noticed when I awoke this morning already (rushed because of a field trip I didn't know I was going on until yesterday) - Little boys highchair still had food and the half sippy cup full of milk that he was working on when I left him with daddy dearest last night. SO in other words my hubby left the dirty highchair with curdling milk. SO i could be the nice wife and clean up his mess so when he gets home with little boy he can feed him. BUT i think it would be a better lesson if I left it. You see dear hubby will come home later than normal having to pick little boy up and realize HE was the one to leave it a mess and he has no one to blame but himself.

He does this a lot and I think it is only fair that he sees what i have to do with the curdling milk he leaves me as presents - Think pregnant lady, weak stomach, and curdling milk - you get picture

Now I am off for a wonderful girls night

No Longer MIA

I am been MIA but I am back with all new topics - like the 7th graders that asked me if I was pregnant or just fat - he was lucky I am pregnant

Or the wonderful 8th grader that told me today I wasn't allowed to touch his homework - hmm - that was a new one

Of course there is the overbearing mother that thinks we are sexually harassing her child by requiring her to follow the dress code. Seriously I have never seen so much cleavage on a middle schooler - There was nothing left to the imagination - I can't even believe she was comfortable wearing that shirt

There are the students that don't know their locker combos into the 7th week of school. I think it has more to do with the fact that they like to be in the hallways after the bell rings

And of course last but not least - The student in my technology class that kept saving EVERY document as Document 1 and then couldn't figure out why his work wasn't saved.

Seriously

I had an 8th grader tell me today that he KNEW all of the problems I marked wrong were actually right. I was talking to him over the phone from one classroom to another so I had him come visit me as we went over the test - he just sat there saying well I never understood those problems so I just guessed - Then how may I ask did you KNOW they were right??
