- In (Not So) Perfect Balance
- Our life is full of wonderful, chaotic, blessed, hysterical, insane, magical, sad, scary, sweet, mind boggling, moments. While balancing life with 3 cherubs, parents, sisters, BIL, In-laws, 1 teaching career, and many good friends; I find that our life is moving far toooo fast. It is important to cherish and record the moments as we consistently try to balance our scale (God forbid I make a photo album)! MB

Not Above a Good Bribe
Upon returning from vacation, the cherubs had three days of school. On Wed we found out that for cherub 2 (first grader) that meant throwing him into the fire with his unit spelling test. I know you are thinking, big deal, it's a spelling test.
No ordinary test. Their unit spelling tests consist of a test on thur of 50 words (current unit words) and on fri with 122 words (that they have learned all year). The unit test week always takes us the full four nights to prepare for (usually with some tears). He is always a trooper and tries SO hard.
So...we had ONE night to study Wed nt for the 50 word test. So...the bribe.
Spell a word, eat an M&M. Yup, this bribed kicked in 1/4 the way through so he probably had about 40 or so M&M's.
Not above a good bribe.
Whatever gets you through the day.
