Dum dum da da dum

I'm taking a class all day every day this week on how to become a mentor teacher. Dare I say it is one of the more boring things I've done in my life? It's always good for me to take a class and realize how mother-fucking boring it is to sit and sit and sit and listen to someone talk at you. Our teacher is actually pretty good, but she doesn't say "teaching." She says, "the profession." For some reason this bugs the shit out of me. I've started tallying how many times she says it. Today it's been 13. So--my loyal fans (laugh, snort) you may be disappointed to know that my posts will be few and far between this week.

So, as for the hilarious but disturbing werewolf/Sophie pictures, Janzen decided that the perfect Father's day present for Erik would be a wolf man mask. Mine is not to reason why. I don't know how we did it, but we found one. Rather than being afraid of it, Sophie thought it was THE BOMB and has been wearing it pretty regularly for the past 2 days.

Laughing and laughing and laughing

Today's worst thing about being a mom:
Finding babysitters

the irony of a teacher teaching a teacher class. "the profession" sounds like prostitution. that may be a way for you to get some laughs out of it - picture everything she's saying having to do with hookers.

trent went through a phase where he wore a cape every day. he had gotten it for a halloween costume and we had put it away, but we found it and that was that. to daycare, to the supermarket, on walks - he had to wear the cape. it's one of my favorite memories of him as a toddler.

Sitting through classes can be dreadful. Especially when 80% of the material is stuff you know and do already, or even worse - common sense. I suggest alot of doodling.

Sophie makes that wolfman costume look stunning.
