I almost cracked a joke about the baby's ears... I reined myself in!

Beef and broccoli with rice and Chicken Osaka with noodles...not a candy bar or orange to be seen. That's okay, the Bake sale was open in the room next door.

I bet you wish someone would feed you and send you to bed! Glad my smiles were contagious!

annie, i couldn't find the story in the link.

babe, your fridge is an art gallery far greater than those here in soho. truely!



my smile today was two-fold. firstly, it's from the relief that a boy with lots of problems who's been bullying my son (my boy actually can kick this kid's butt since he's much bigger and has summarily just tossed him aside when it gets to be too much, but the kid is so messed up that he keeps coming back for more), but today after some intervention by dw we found out that this boy is finally going to be sent to another school for help. the amazing part is somehow she managed to remain friends with this kids mom. i wish she used that kind of diplomacy with me, lol.

secondly and more importantly, we also found out that the school has recommended that our son be put in classes for gifted children.


to quote martin and lewis, that's my boy!!!!

BuckyTom-I edited the post to include the link to CBS news site who originally aired the story. There is a place to click for the video.

My silly "big" smiles from today came in the form that my 2 fav's from American Idol were saved. Does it even count that I voted for 2 hours straight for both of them? LOL
Also, perhaps even firstly, I got informed that my DD is STILL the highest-ranking 3rd-grader in her school for her AR(accelerated reading) points for her grade...which, is QUITE an honor. As it stands, she is quite likely & able to win the yearly award for this alone. (It is QUITE an accomplishment...Lord knows...I spend HUNDREDS of $$$ for new books for her to devour)!! Proud Mama here!! YAY!!

I am smiling at all of you! These stories are so special.

I am also smiling for another reason. Our Vancouver Canucks just won the President's Trophy as the top team in the NHL!!!!! No, it isn't the Stanley Cup, but at least we will have home ice advantage for how ever many series we are in. Yay Canucks!
