Back by popular demand (well not really demand, but I got some stuff to flip off)
#1 Absolute biggest flip off ever might be the a-holes...err - people who think it's okay to ask me when I'm going to "try for #2?" - Ummm is it your damn business?!? People: let's make this clear: You should never ask a person a) if they're pregnant (that will never go well) and b) when/if they are trying...seriously with all the crap that goes on with baby making - you still have the balls to ask me...well STOP.
#2 Hey all you know-it-alls who think teachers should get merit pay?!? Umm...children are not bottom lines. I do not sell a product nor do I have clients. I teach children to do and be the best they can. Period. We do not pay firefighters based on the amount of fires they put out or police officers on the amount of arrests made - so really? Teachers should not be paid based on how their students score on some standardized test that business people and politicians developed. Thank you very much.
A Flip Off to the parents who do not call teachers back. It's your kid's education I'm calling to discuss. C'mon...find 5 minutes to give me a ring.
#3 Flipping Off time - why is there never enough of it? I feel like by the time we finish with J's nighttime routines and have our own (dinner/showers) it's freaking bedtime. Mike and I are like two passing ships in the water. BOO!!
#4 A final Flippity Flip Off to the never-ending cold/cough my kid now has since starting daycare. As my pediatrician said so bluntly, "Daycares keep peds in business." I love you daycare, I really do, but please keep your colds to yourself. I do like to sleep at night.
Happy Friday everyone!
My goal next week is to get some more posts done over here...(see flip off #3)
