For two nights in a row now I've been kept up nearly all night with not-quite-sick-enough but really-fucking-uncomfortable and not-perfectly-healthy children.
And now I have germy sludge waving around in my head making it impossible for me to do anything in my normal capabilities which, granted, aren't all that fantabulous but sure as hell beats the pants off this moving-slower-than-a-turtle shit.
Griffin's home from school today with a fever, which he thinks is great. So I'm thinking, the fever isn't all that high (101.3) and keeping him pretty docile, I'm not gonna give him anything to lower his fever. If you're sick, act like it. And fucking motrin takes their aches and pains away and then they're running around the room. And I'm just not in the mood for that today.
I've been getting a lot requests wanting to know how Griffin's school is doing. ::sigh:: He doesn't like school, there's no science program. He's not getting challenged enough to be interested in learning the basics so he doesn't like it. We do projects at home with him that suggest an age range from 8 to 15 years old. And for him to be expected to learn things for a five year old? Pshaw. Totally not worth his time in his mind.
He still haves the long-term substitute teacher. A rumor was going around that they hired a permanent teacher, but we haven't heard anything "official" yet. I know for certain that Griffin's classroom does have course books for everyone and he says they have cubbies now. Past that, I'm have no clue how well the class is outfitted, given how strict they are with security and not letting adults who don't work there getting too far into the hallways. ::sigh::
What matters to me now is that he is learning to read and write. To me, that's what Kindergarten is all about. We continue to do lots of science stuff with him at home. And discussion has begun for getting him tested for the "gifted" or "advanced" classes. But we need to wait until the basics are covered. AND he goes back to his Occupational Therapist in October for a re-evaluation for his Sensory Integration Disorder/Borderline High Functioning Autism, who told us years ago that he functioned on a higher level of "intelligence" for kids his age.
In other news, I found out about this today:
The new Chronic-what-cles of Narnia comes out May 16th. I shameless stole the image from here, where you can also read about the details from the movie. Andy Samberg better damn-well make another video and song for this one too.
Oh, and this came out yesterday:
Note to self: buy Aaron some new jeans, oh my hell. And some pretty panties too (booty shakin' looks better with pretty panties).
