~ Lovegirl’s teacher, the school director, and I are having a sit down on Monday. Nearly every day Lovegirl comes home and tells me something her teacher has said that I consider inappropriate for a teacher – particularly a teacher of 5 year olds. Most recently? The new class is rule is “don’t talk to Lovegirl” and Lovegirl’s been told “you can’t write anything.” Okay, my kid talks a lot. And she needs to be quiet in class. I get that. However, I’m sure that saying “don’t talk to Lovegirl” is not the best approach to dealing with my chatty kid. And “you can’t write anything”? No ma’am! Lovegirl’s writing can indeed be atrocious. But how about “your threes are good, let’s work on your eight and six?” Why would you tell a child they can’t do something academic? I spend way too much time working on building Lovegirl up to have this chick speak negativity into her life. Now, I’m hoping this is all a misunderstanding and that Lovegirl hasn’t told me the entire story. But if not, it is on. I will not have anyone putting limitations on my child – particularly when it comes to academics!
~ Speaking of academics… my wintersession has begun. Blech. I have class every day for two weeks straight. Three papers due and I have to give four lectures. Blech. But, it knocks out a semester, so I’mma dig in and be comforted by the fact that it’ll be over before I know it. Right? Right.
~ Pelvis has left the building. My old boss from Hell went to the house yesterday. She shall be missed. By someone. Not necessarily yours truly.
~ Another Qhemet Biologics rave. Their castor and moringa softening serum? The bomb! My locs are much, much softer than they’ve ever been. The only downside? I think I paid like $14 for a relatively small bottle. Please believe I’ll be running to the natural food store and trying to replicate this at home. But if I can’t. I’ll just have to part with the $. This stuff is good!
~ I am getting ready for another corporate fast with my church – we start this Sunday. I am giving up the same three things this year that I did last – meat, bread, and sweets. The bread and sweets are most difficult for me. I will be sitting down this weekend and planning my menu for next week. I am preparing to eat a lot of fruits, vegetables and whole grain pastas. I will definitely be putting my soup pot to good use!
~ Looking forward to Jaheim’s new album. I think he is an artist who is slept on by the masses. The dude constantly turns out good music. I can’t think of a single song of his that I don’t like. Well, except “Me and My *itch.” And if he’d chosen a more appropriate term of endearment, I’d be down with that one too.
~ I believe I’ve talked Smoochy into going to a comedy show with me next month. Sommore, Bruce Bruce, George Wilborn and Don DC Curry. I’m really going for Bruce Bruce. That dude is hilarious to me!
Mmkay, that’s it. I’ve got to get back to my coursework. 2 days down. 8 to go!
