Out of Step

Monday, May 5th, 2014

One evening, my daughter had not participated well in an expensive ballet class we signed her up for. My husband told her if she did not start participating, the teacher might kick her out of class. She responded, “Miss Dyer doesn’t kick people!”

Dancing Queen

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

My younger daughter came with me to watch my older daughter at her hip-hop dance class. An older woman saw Alyssa observing and asked, “Do you dance too? What kind of dancing do you do?” Alyssa enthusiastically responded, “I do hippopotamus too!”

letter to fruit loopsMy “Type A” son was on the verge of a meltdown after the acitivity on the back of the Froot Loops box wasn’t working as the instructions promised. I recommended he write a letter to Kelloggs as a constructive way to channel his frustration. Here’s what he wrote:

Dear Froot Loops,

I tride to make the cube on the box. It did not werk. I am frusterated. Please make better activities on your boxes that werk.
