Reading 101 or NOT

Seems I need a better course on how to raise kids for school. Geeze, my son has to be able to tell the characters, setting, problem (plot) and solution of every book he reads. He is in frick'n kindergarten. Ok, I'm tired... I have bronchitis... I had a cgi on monday and I'm going for a deep tooth cleaning on one side of my mouth and an extraction on the other tomorrow. Some one take the chocolate away from my house or I'm going to be 200 pounds before this week is over. 5 foot and 200 pounds. At least everyone would stay out of my way.

Update: Boy did that come out wrong. It is not just the reading, but the fact that he has to look at a picture and write a story about it that has characters, settings, problem and solution. No joke. Sigh. Someone give me a new brain please.

And I lost AGAIN at trying to get my kids some pokemon energy cards for their new pokemon. Ugh.

Oh, just wait till he hits 3rd grade.
You can forget the plot and characters. By then you'll be making t-shirt iron-ons and log cabins for book reports.

I wish I was kidding... :-(

Hang in there!

(continued from Roses' comment) and volcanoes, solar systems, lots of projects that require shoe boxes, solar oven and a million more that require the parent's creativity and patience. Good luck. You've only just begun.

Oh, wait. I was supposed to cheer you up right. Forget everything Roses and I said. School is a piece of cake for the parent. Every child will do every assignment without help, hesitation, or hollering. ...And they lived happily ever after.
