We've been housebound now for the last three days, watching neighbors shovel our street (seriously) and attempt to make it up the huge hill we live at the bottom at.
You know desperation has set in because yesterday I pulled out the Shrinky Dinks. On my own free will.
Next I'll be letting them play with glitter and Moon Sand.
Okay, I'm not that crazy.
In the meantime, here's what I've been writing:
It also means I know that some of you hate partial feeds, a lot of you don't care, and even more of you don't know what a feed is.
For those of you who have quit reading me due to my partial feeds, thanks for paining yourself to click through for a cause (ha!). I do realize a lot of you read at work, and my blog may be blocked - so I completely understand why you don't read anymore. But boy, you're missing out! (haha!)
2. Amy Chua's piece at the Wall Street Journal entitled "Why Chinese Mothers are Superior" has spread like wildfire. I'm pretty sure it might be the most brilliant way to get a book to the top of the New York Times bestseller list. In fact, she should write another piece called "Why Chinese Authors are Superior." The common theme: both at the expense of her kids.
I wrote a response asking whether Amy Chua's Chinese Parenting is Good for America. As a daughter and granddaughter of a Chinese mother, I figured I'd be a good one to share. Feel free to decide yourselves.
3. And do homeschoolers have snow days? We changed up our curriculum on Monday (the actual snow day) and I shared what we did over at The Pioneer Woman Homeschooling. The picture is not actually my house, but all the commenters think it is, which, well, I don't have the heart to say anything.
Now, I've got some baby weight to sweat off, and a brand new laptop that I got a week ago but still haven't actually used!
