To say I’m athletic is to say that the John Legend and Chrissy Teigen holiday special was magical. Both are a lie and it’s ok to accept it. This is the second dodgeball game I’ve attended. First with my oldest and now my youngest (9-years-old) had his this evening. It’s held in their gym and… Continue reading Hot Mess Plays Dodgeball
Ok, obviously I don’t think my children are ass holes. I love them more than life itself. If anything, I use ass holes as a term of endearment. All I’m saying is I cherish my evenings, to do as I wish which let’s be real, is blogging. This whole not going to school thing is… Continue reading When Do These A$$ Holes Go Back to School?
I love how the last month of school, everyone’s like fuck it. The parents are like fuck it, the kids are like fuck it and the teachers (I’m sure) are like fuck it. What I mean is we are just days away from the finish line and everyone’s doing everything they can, just to get… Continue reading Everyone’s Like F*** It, It’s the End of the School Year
On Thursday, my son gave a presentation called Explorer of the Week and parents were allowed to attend. Basically each week, one child is assigned to be the explorer, get up in front of the class and talk about himself. They can bring in pictures or anything they feel represents them. C brought in 10… Continue reading Hot Mess Visits 3rd Grade
A few days ago I was reading (and enjoying) a blog post over at An Historian About Town. It was about her 2018 style resolution and I do think you should check it out! I found it interesting because up until recently, my life revolved around fashion. I ate, slept and breathed fashion. Growing up,… Continue reading Hot Mess’s Internship, NYC 2000, Day 1
Yesterday, I whined about how parenting school-aged kids now is far different from yesteryear. You can read about it here. But I have more to compare, I just don’t like super long posts. So I give you part 2 of how much involvement is involved now versus when I went to school in 1843. School… Continue reading School Involvement Today Versus Yesterday- Part 2
Despite technology allowing us to stay more connected to our children’s school, I am lagging behind. For those of you with grown children or for those who don’t have children and grew up at least a decade ago, you are in for a special treat of what it’s like now. For those of you that… Continue reading School Involvement Today Versus Yesterday- Part 1
I know I have several readers from all over the world and I want to know, do your schools send kids out, selling for fund-raisers? Raise money for new playground equipment! Earn money for our music program! Send the band to the Rose Bowl! This is all well and good but my 8-year-old brought up… Continue reading School Fundraisers
I was in middle school in the 80’s. They still had spanking, teacher smoke breaks and teachers who would yell at you till you were almost in tears. Yet knowing all of this, I got REALLY bad grades in math despite knowing there would be consequences. I try to own my own screw ups and I’ll… Continue reading I Hate Math & My Worst Teacher Ever!
I broke this post up into 2 so it didn’t turn out to be a book. If you didn’t read part 1, here it is: My Son Acted Like Bobby Knight. If you don’t want to read it, basically my son is in BIG trouble and we had to have an impromptu meeting with teachers. After… Continue reading My Son Acted Like Bobby Knight This Week- Part 2
