Cooking with Kids

Where does the time go..

Wow I've been a super busy Momma these past couple of weeks. No time to post or time to even think. With my surgery date creeping up around the corner, it has got me very scared of what I am going to do with only one hand for 6 weeks.. (Yikes). Being a mother of a soon to be 9 month old and a bouncing kindergardener , I need both my hands!!! I guess I better enjoy my time left with my 2 valuable hands!!!

On the other hand :P. Peyton is going to be 9 months! Wow where does the time go. I remember the day she was born and now today. It is true with your second the time just flies. I guess thats why they say enjoy the little things.

I hope everyone is doing well. And the weather is at least better then it is here in Vancouver.. Sigh...

Here is a recent pic of my Munchkins

Have a nice long weekend Friends!!

Schools Labelling Kids

Jeez , I'm mad and Irriated . Feeling lost and a bad Parent :( Why must People make you feel like that.My son started Kindergarden this year, and ever since the beginning of the school year its been a whirl wind of things.I don't know what to think anymore. Is my son ok? Is he just a kid?

Sometimes it makes me wonder about schools these days and labelling kids with things they don't have, just because the school system is broke or just plain lazy . Don't get me wrong...., Some school and teachers are A++ Material, with caring and understanding nature, but Others.. Hmm.

I guess I cant blame anyone besides the Government for taking away funding for "extra" help or just plain paying the teachers more to "exactly" like their Job.

I am talking my son to the Specialist to really get down to the problem. I just hope and pray he's just a kid and just needs some extra help ..Sigh..

Sorry , I had to vent :)
