You would think that if a certain writer had an entire week without any Juniors underfoot, that said writer would be astoundingly prolific and get ever so much work done. I mean, it makes perfect sense, right?
Only in The Real World here, that’s not exactly how the writing week shook out. Which explains why it is Friday NIGHT and I’m just now telling you about my essay that debuted in errant parent this week!
So, the essay’s called “On Being Ugly” and I hope you like it. Assuming you have time to zip over and read it. But if you don’t get to it for a couple days, I promise. I’ll understand completely.
Woman, you crack me up. Thank goodness I am not a PTFH. I'm a hands on kind of gal, unless they put their mitts on me! You are a talented and funny writer.
Aw, thanks so much, Linda. I, too, taught preschool for awhile-after what we around here call "The PTFH Incident."I ALWAYS let kids color any which way they wanted. :-)And happily, my other kids had wonderful hands-on teachers like you.
You crack me up! That was great! I'm glad you told off the PTFH. I wanted to tell off my daughter's 7th grade LATFH (language arts etc.) but as I'm not FROM the South (I'm a…gulp!…Yankee by birth) I was unaware of the last child rule. Alas! Would that I had known!
Oh, Lisa, I'm SO sorry. I should have given you a heads up a long time ago! :-)(P.S. But now you know!)
Like I said over at my blog, I laughed out loud at this essay and I don't even have kids! Well done, Cathy! 🙂
Oh my goodness, that cracked me up! Hilarious!
