Hello!! First of all, thank you all so much for your sweet comments regarding my crazy side. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who knows how to through a temper tantrum. Today was much more successful. It was full of teaching, laughing, and food. Smoothie, Cliff bar + yogurt, carrots + hummus, green tea, cashew butter + pretzels, bbq chicken salad. As The BFG would say, it was all scrumdiddlyumptious! I also had a much more encouraging run after school, and now I’m relaxing with a long overdue viewing of Monday’s Gossip Girl.

In the 3rd grade world…

We still have no confirmation of the penguin story, but when I asked about it today, I got this response…

(He has a very advanced vocabulary, and this is pretty close to verbatim…)

“Apparently, it’s illegal to have a pet penguin in United States. We had to send him back to Antarctica. We got him connected with a penguin family that didn’t have any babies because when adult penguins don’t have babies, they steal and eat other penguin’s children. This way, Mumbo (which I later learned was his former pet’s name) can prevent the death of an innocent baby penguin.”

Then he drew me a picture of Mumbo.

Pin It!
