what gives me hell?

My girls are crazy about the All-American Rejects. They’ve been making me listen to their awful songs. Well, okay, I see Tyson’s face and it gives me hell, it gives me hell! That’s all I can say… 😆 .

Oh, did I mention it’s hip to be mom of my teens?

Hands down… The Backstreet Boys!

We went to their concert last year, woo-hoo and I think AJ smiled at me 😛 !! No, I’m sure he was.

Okay, I can’t even think of food right now, or rather, I shouldn’t. I just did a snack run less than 2 hours ago so my tummy shouldn’t be growling. But it is. So yes, I am thinking of food… and this is what I’m thinking of right now.

learning to read

All my kids were reading by age 4. Steev and Raine, my older ones, could read Peter and Jane books by the time they were 3 years old, and Skye around 4. I started late with her because I was too busy with the two older ones. Not an excuse but you know how everything becomes a blur when you work full-time and have 3 kids. But I guess as long they learn to read before they turn 25, they should be okay.

rushed kids

It’s pretty sad the lives of some kids these days. They often have to forgo a childhood at the expense of an education. Yep, it’s a rat race out there and many parents feel pressured to pressure their kids into as many activities as they can possibly squeeze into a day.

From regular school to ballet to piano to sports to numerous school activities to tutoring, there’s no end to the rushing about, no time for a childhood. I think it’s sad. But many parents think this is the only way to prepare their kids for future success.
