OH OH OH OH OH! I forgot to tell you all! So last weekend we went garage saleing (I adore garage sales. ADORE THEM!) and Pippa was pretending to be a puppy while wearing one of her her hulk shirts and this guy whose garage we were in was commenting on how cute she was so I said, “When she grows up she says she wants to be either The Hulk or a puppy.” “OR A LIBRARIAN!”...

Michael, I understand nuclear fission now.– Eight year old Brain at breakfast. (via theremightbebrownies) My nephew, however, should probably also not be teaching sixth graders but he’s totes a genius.
I had a dream last night that Kaylee’s school decided, instead of promoting her to first grade, to promote her to sixth grade AS A TEACHER. I kept trying to tell people at the school that this wouldn’t work and they kept reminding me that Kaylee its really smart and I kept agreeing that yes, she’s really smart but she is not THIS smart and them the school acted like I was a...

ellpea: phantasypunk replied to your post: So I just got a voicemail from a librarian in… Digital story time, you say? Do tell. OHMIGOSH it was the best ever. Our normal storytimes are half an hour but this one was 45 minutes to add in a bit of teaching. For the most part it was a regular storytime but the catch was that everything was digital. We hooked our laptop up to the digital...
So I just got a voicemail from a librarian in Virginia who wanted information about one of my programs and in my head I’m thinking, “My Digital Storytime? Circulating preloaded ereaders? The Early Literacy Summer Reading Club just for babies?” No - she wants to know about my book club for 3rd - 5th graders. Ugh - can’t we talk about a program I’ve done that was...
mar-see-ah: It’s the Internet. Who gives a fuck if you’re saying “gif” or “jif” in your head while you read a post on your phone in the bathroom.

You know what I don’t get about all this Yahoo hoopla?

Pippa: I don't know who I'm going to marry yet.
LP: That's ok. You have plenty of time to figure that out.
P: I'm going to pick it out now. I'm going to pick out who Kaylee and I are going to marry. BUT NO ONE IS GOING TO MARRY A GIRL.
LP: Why not?
P: Because you can't!
K: Yes you can, Pippa! That's called being a gay. Or a bi, like Mommy. And then you can't go to chick-fil-a.
K: Does Mommy have to eat all her dinner?
LP: If I don't eat my dinner, I get a headache.
P: If I don't eat my dinner, I get a headache AND I DIE! ! ! !
