Herding Cats

Well if this is a typical book that you would take away from a 7-year-old who is reading it under the covers with a flash-light after lights-out… I guess then Erik is your typical 7-year-old.

And after Jason confiscated it tonight, Erik’s words were… “Oh man, but it’s sooo good!”   Of course it is Erik, and I’m sure when you are done you can pass it around your grade 2 class so that everyone else can enjoy it too.

And he has the nerve to blame his taste in books on me because he says that I’ve read “Dummy” books before.  Which I have, I’ll be the first to admit I love a good “how-to” book, but I think the ‘Dummy’  book I read was how to be a be frugal mom trying to raise 4 kids on a single income, NOT how to learn Power-Point.   I do often wonder how Jason and I ended up with this child and I also wonder if his teacher’s prediction of him becoming an Astro physicist will come true.  Although I just looked that up (I didn’t even know what it was… dummy!) and apparently those guys are on a quest to figure out how the universe was made and so I’ll betcha that not many of them are Christians.  If they were then their thesis could contain just one word…. “GOD”…. but I betcha it probably wouldn’t go over too well.

So as my little Einstein sleeps,  I bake another batch of midnight cookies, this time for William’s “graduation” party – and I use that term in the loosest sense of the word as we are celebrating with his classmates tomorrow his and their completion of Senior Kindergarten.   It’s very exciting.

So another day of herding cats… this is what it has come too… or what it feels like… trying to get my children out of the door in the morning when all of them are doing their own thing with their own agendas, none of which seem to be getting dressed, eating breakfast or walking out the door.

Thank goodness there are only 4 MORE DAYS LEFT OF SCHOOL!!!!
