Capping off the week of blogging disappointment

Ive sucked this week. Im off my game people. I have no real excuse except maybe an indicator of what else is happening in my life by offering two sentence i actually had to say yesterday....
"If she brings up her dead pony, whatever you do, do NOT comfort her, because you will undo about three weeks of therapy."
along with...
"I appreciate what you are saying but there really isnt a huge amount of social difference between humping the ground, and humping the air."

Edited to add: And I forgot about the incident during kindergarten screening yesterday. Parents were not allowed to go in with the kids but we were allowed to listen. You can imagine the wave of dread that washed over me when the speech therapist asked norm what he'd had for breakfast this morning. Needless to say it did not subside at all when I heard him answer "nothing...oh wait i had some kool-aid". Then he proceeded to tell her that his favorite foods are cereal milk and waffles. Just one more Mother Of the year moment.

Well at least he didn't say "cold pizza and beer". haha

Canada said...

Kindergarten screening!?!?!?!


Mert said...

Yeah, screening?

Mine would have said mini donuts and milk, which ain't the most nutritious meal.

Well, at least there was milk involved.

Oh, my dear... you have been having a lot of humping discussions lately, I can tell- and not the good kind. You poor thing. I am sending snurgles your way. :D

Ash said...

Did you say screening? screening my five year old?

Wha? Like it's fucking harvard?


Ask Lei what she had for breakfast and she will tell you oatmeal. In reality she had waffles. Frozen waffles, but that kid will llllllllllllllllliiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeee like the devil and say that no one feeds her.

Damn kid. totally ruins my reputation.

kindergarden screening? And I second Jay...better than cold pizza and beer...though the cold pizza is my favorite breakfast :)

"What's breakfast? You mean Pixie Stix and sugar sandwiches?"

ZigZagMan said...

Jay soooooo beat me to the punch on this one!! :)

Pippajo said...

Ah, yes, Kool-Aid, the breakfast of champions.

Do you mean screening as in who is rich/smart/cool enough to get in or as in who is ready to come to school and start learning stuff?

I was a bit of a wreck during Man-Cub's Kindergarten assessment last year cause I never know what that kid is going to say. I mean, up until last week he suspected he had a glass eye! But they let him in and no officials came knocking at my door so I guess we're okay for a while.

By the way, breakfast today was an Entenmann's donut in the car.

Jay and Zig- yeah there was a concern about him discussing mommy's affinity for "grown up" drinks.
Canada, Mert, Ash, Pippa, Motd-its totally not what you think. They just check for vision, hearing, speech issues, and fine motor issues to identify kids with needs. Its a good thing! Sort of...
XO- you think you are joking but i swear weve had that very breakfast before.

RockDog said...

"cereal milk and waffles"...Is that bad?

Mrs.ZigZagMan said...

crse- vodka (especially flavored ones) or rum goes well with many flavors of koolaid... if your savvy you can even freeze the koolaid as ice cubes... so you dont water down your drink... plus you can controll the sugar... from many flavors i use about 1/2 or 2/3 cup of sugar but you could use splenda etc... and add fresh fruit
even better.... cheap ready daiquairis! alcholol, koolaid ice and blender.. maybe some fresh fruit too... or frozen fruit from the freezer.

think black cherry koolaid and lime vodka,

or stawberry vodka and lemon lime koolaid

or mix all berry flavors... you get the idea
sometimes its great
sometimes it sucks
but its almost always fun !!!

"If she brings up her dead pony..."

I'm sorry that your horrific moments make me laugh, but they do. That's actually kind of good, right? :)

Those statements you had to make to clients are some of the funniest things I've ever read. I wish I could have been a fly on the wall to hear the conversations that prompted those responses!
