Since I know you are all waiting with bated breath to learn the results of our preschool search, I bring you the following PSA. J has been on the ground in LA for a week now, and he has ferreted out a preschool. Actually, I ferreted several out and lined up appointments for him, neatly spaced in one-and-a-half-hour slots with an extra half-hour for lunch. There were a few that had spaces available, and after careful consideration, we have chosen one and we have put down a deposit.
It is a synagogue preschool, which means no more Christmas plays or Easter hat parades, although I have a sneaking suspicion I will be attending a Purim carnival or two. That suits me just fine; if the kids are going to be learning about a religion, I vote for it to be ours.
The director impressed us with her concern for children’s developmental level and her understanding that children do not all fit a single mold. Zachary will start the week we move. Twice a week, Benjamin will be in a transitional class, which means I need to be there, too, even though I am pretty sure he won’t notice my presence if there are toys and other children around.
Every now and then, I get tagged for memes. I want to comply, really I do. I am a rule-follower by nature. But, I never seem to like the posts I put together out of memes. So, if you have tagged me and I have not come through, please do not curse me with seven-years bad luck and please forgive me.
I do, however, make a point to acknowledge all the kindness I am shown here on the internet. Sheila, over at My Memories, has given me this lovely piece of bling:
It is really a wonderful award because it goes out to “the blogs that you’ve discovered that you can’t possibly live without. They make you laugh, cry, think and feel connected every time you read a post. They give you a thrill as you see them loading into your browser and you get an equally satisfying thrill when you see that they have commented on your blog.” It originates over here, and recipients are to go and link to those they are giving the award to. Thank you so very much, Sheila, for passing on an award you so richly deserved.
Now, for the fun part. I decided I had to limit it to two blogs, but I read about 100. It was tough going, but I chose two blogs to which I really am addicted, to the point that I shove all other posts out of the way when I see them come up in my Google Reader:
Flutter, because you are honest and raw but still snarky;
And Becky, at Mommy Wants Vodka, because I think I have a crush on your snarkiness.
Does anybody notice a trend, here?
That’s it. Back tomorrow with weight and substance and all the good, dark stuff you have come to
dread expect at this here blog.
