it's real!

It just happened to me. I had a very difficult year last year; I was bullied by a coworker, who took it to admin. Long story short, bully is best friends with principal's daughter. I resigned...

My kiddos are now 20, 16, and 10. They have always had chores (age appropriate, of course). When I tell them to go do XYZ, they do. I still have to remind them (even the 20 year old!), and they...

TempurPedic

Hubby bought it without me. Hated it for the first week, but woke up each day without back pain. Now that we have had it for 7 years, I can't sleep on anything else! You could try a memory foam...

Airboat vs. regular

If you just want to get them a swamp tour, Honey Island is your best bet (Cajun Encounters is good too....had their kid in my class). Airboat rides are more expensive because of the insurance. ...

Smartboard

You will LOVE it! First off, see if any of your textbooks come on CD/DVD. Our math book (consumable) came on CD, so I could flash the same page the kids were working on....I also make a lot of my...

Been there....

I did exactly that and have never regretted it! You cannot turn your back on them and you almost never get to sit down. You can't just hand out an assignment and expect to go sit at your desk. The...

I have a Stephen, too, but we pronounce it with the "f" (like Stefan). I wish we had just spelled it that way on his birth certificate, because everyone calls him Steven!
