Parent Of The Year, Part 1

I was going to post about Jonah's most recent column today. It's about global warming and contains the usual kind of crap; hysterical environmentalists, capitalism roolz, an unsupported and unsupportable conclusion. And a smug photo, of course. I don't even the energy to link to it, though. It's just too mind-numbing.

I went grocery shopping instead. Found a delicious can of smoked dace in black beans but passed on the eel when my youngest said he wouldn't try it. We stocked up on candy for the grade school party, along with a package of the ever-popular American Chopper series of Valentine's cards. The romance lives!

We got home and my middle one asked for help with a school time-line project. I'm good at that sort of thing. My suggestions:

December 12, 2000 - The End Times begin.
March 17, 2001 - Mommy stops crying.
August 3, 2002 - Daddy teaches me to swear.
May 25, 2003 - What a bunch of bullshit.
November 2, 2004 - The End Times, continued.
February 8, 2005 - Daddy stops crying.
October 7, 2006 - The family enjoys a nice batch of chili.

We spend a lot of time with the school principal.

My 6 yr-old came home with a behavioral notice yesterday. She was asked to write about something she had done that day... she wrote about pooping...
