Sugar high

Here we are all the way in November, and my last post was on Halloween. I think I may still be recuperating from the fact that Joseph ate several lime-flavored Tootsie Rolls. (The kid had never really eaten candy before, and he chose those? Wouldn’t have been my first choice.) We’ve tried so hard to make sure that he eats a well-balanced, healthy diet (whatever that means), and so the choice to let him eat a little of his Halloween candy was not an easy one. But we let him, and the mixture of partially hydrogenated oils and corn syrup didn’t seem to make him explode or ooze any kind of toxic substance, but we’ll see what happens next year when he eats more than a couple of pieces.

So what has been going on since we gave our child candy? Not much. I’ve pretty much been busy holding crabby, crying children, wondering if the amount of hair that has fallen out of my hormonal head and has collected in the bottom of my bathroom garbage can is enough to make a full wig or just a small toupee. That, or why on earth do toy makers make “realistic” dolls that open their eyes when you pick them up and close them when you put them down in their beds when in reality it is the exact opposite.

That’s kind of how it is lately.

But don’t worry, you’ll hear from me soon. Today is Joseph’s second birthday. I’m sure I’ll have something to report other than the status of my post-pregnancy hair.

I really like lime-flavored tootsie rolls. and here I thought it was because my taste was becoming more mature . . .

I'm glad you're back!

I got my student teaching assignment--Kalamazoo Central HS! Nervous as all get out? You bet! I guess soon I'll be panicking over 90-minute lesson plans...

Good luck Becky. I've never done a block schedule before. My friend Jen really likes it. I like a shorter class myself.
