Random Stuff

Just random stuff before I go to bed:

1) I should’ve gone to bed an hour ago, after I put Daniel to bed for the night, since I plan to wake up at 5am to grade. 😛 WHAT FUN.

2) This past Friday, I got the Hubby an iPhone, since a) he talks a lot on the phone with his mom, and his mom’s primary phone is a mobile and b) he’d like to get on the Internet without searching for wifi hotspots.  To say the least, we both find this little gadget very NIFTY.  I’m coveting it big time, even though I really have no need for a cell upgrade as “Cadillac-plan” worthy as an iPhone with unlimited data, text, and mobile-to-mobile calling.

Still.  DROOL.

3) This past Sunday, while Daniel was playing in the cool park not too far away from the house, a little boy wanted to go down this climbing/slide thingy while Daniel was trying to go up it — at the same time.  The little boy asked, “Can I go down?” His father, expecting Daniel to say no or something worse, was about to tell his son to just wait.  Imagine his surprise when my 2.5 year old said, “Yes,” and stepped aside for the little boy to get down.

I just wanted to jump up and down, squealing with joy: he’s turning out to be a pretty good kid, this little guy of mine. Maybe — just maybe — I do know the difference between my ass and a hole in the ground, when it comes to this “motherhood” thing.  🙂

Okay — that’s it for now.  Off to bed for early grading, or else my Comp II  students will go mutiny on me tomorrow. 🙂

If single-mothering were a paid job, I'd be rich. However, it doesn't, so I write (which doesn't pay the bills) and teach (which does). I'm overly-educated in the liberal arts, but that doesn't hinder my ability to be pragmatic and realistic. YAY.
