School is Back in Sort Of


Yes I am Angry Cat right now.

Yesterday the bus did not come for my kids.

Today the bus did not come for my kids.

Yesterday I was told their bus (A-10) was broken down and another (A-27) should have picked them up. It’s supposed to come at 8:17am, we were there from 8am until 9am, school starts at 9:05am. They said I must have missed it somehow yesterday, but no it did not come, I looked at every bus. Besides that, how was I supposed to know to look for the A-27, when we told the A-10 was picking them up. How was I supposed to know they switched busses unless they tell me?! My mind reading or telepathy does not work that well as I’ve aged as I must have missed the telepathic message about the bus change.

They told me that today the A-27 would come to pick them up, it did not again. They said the A-10 would be out of service until Wednesday or Thursday and we’ll get the A-27. Today I called the school to find out what’s going on a about 9am, they said the A-10 was sitting in front of the school. ?! 

It did not come past me, I looked at every single bus number going both ways on the street, the A-27 or A-10 did not come past us.

They assured me yesterday that my kids would be picked up today, they were not. They assured me today that my kids would get picked up tomorrow, I guess we’ll wait and see won’t we?!

Yes, I am Angry Cat right now….

The Very Hungary Caterpillar

Yes I know it’s ‘hungry’ and not ‘hungary’

If you have children, then you are very familiar with the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ , I’ve got three kids and have read it so many times I’ve lost count…

anyway, my middle child, Nick, is in kindergarten and today he came home with this little book that they made in school… It’s a variation on the original story where in the end he says his stomach hurts and from now on he’ll only eat good food instead of junk.. but anyway, here’s a picture of the cover:

Notice anything wrong there?

I’m guessing he’s a very Hungarian caterpillar?!?  as opposed to be a plain Hungarian caterpillar…

The best part is that this little booklet thing is actually to help them learn to spell!!!!

Amazing isn’t it?!

Oh, well…
