No Obama Speech To Be Heard At His School…

Posted by MomOf2Boys On September - 9 - 2009 ADD COMMENTS

I said a prayer this morning. I didn’t want to believe or think that my child’s school would censor my child and or any other children from hearing the POTUS’ speech today, but it happened. And You Know What? I got PISSED and called up his school.

1st I was told that the message was recorded and if the teachers so fit, they would incorporate his speech into their lesson plan, however, before such were to even take place, permission slips would be sent home. I am thinking, are you friggin serious. My child doesn’t need permission to hear the POTUS tell him how important it is for him to do his best in school and to ensure that he graduates and what not. What I need is for the school to get some balls and to tell me when and if they aren’t planning on allowing my child to listen to the POTUS speak so I can him from school so he can view the speech.

Just like the crazy GOP doesn’t want a Blackman telling their children how important school is… and how they don’t want to be reminded about the POTUS’ history and how he go to where he is… I don’t need anyone censoring my child from seeing successful Blackmen; ESPECIALLY when the ULTIMATE successful Blackman is addressing him and the other children in the nation on the importance of their education.

Funny, the school allows aimless individuals to come into the school and to speak with the children without sending parents a note home informing them of such. I don’t know these people from the man on the damn moon and they want to parade endless strangers in front of my child. I don’t care if their message is the same as the POTUS’. I don’t know them. They could have a criminal background for all I know… They could be pedophiles… Their record could have been altered by some crazy ass judge in order for them to gain gainful employment… I don’t know those people… BUT I do know the POTUS and I don’t have one friggin issue with him addressing my child…

Oh! back to the story. I was then told that the children didn’t get the chance to see it, but it was taped. The reason being was because some children had lunch… UmMmm! From what I understand, there are monitors throughout the cafeteria. Why couldn’t they view it while they had lunch… Oh! I forgot… parent’s need to sign permission slips for their child(ren) to hear the POTUS speak to them…

Can You Say Stupid Politics… These nutcases are allowing politics to drive them when it comes to educating my child… but they don’t want the POTUS to speak because he going to brainwash children into being successful…

Please excuse my language, but what dumbasses are they!?!?!

You’re A Jerk…

1st off, my 11 yr old has no rhythm what so ever, however, some how and some way, he’s managed to pick up this dance… HmMmm! Interesting… I don’t know if I should be shacking my head or smiling…

But you know what, he’s not much into music either… So I guess he’s earned his ghetto pass with this one… not that we hang out in the ghetto… but I’m just saying… Now he doesn’t have to rely on me remembering to bring mine if and when we should venture into that side of town… he he he he he….

School Doesn’t Give Enough Homework

Posted by MomOf2Boys On September - 9 - 2009 ADD COMMENTS

I don’t know what the deal is with these schools now a days. But what I do know is, I DON’T LIKE IT!

What the hey is up with my son’s school not handing out homework? They assign the children homework, however, they allow them to finish it up at school. This is totally unexceptionable to me. Homework is for home, while school work is for school.

How the hell else are children supposed to learn the value of being self reliant, responsibility, paying attention while in class and doing the best they can do when they aren’t given homework.

Oh! And the other trend is that the children in my son’s district do not bring homework home over the weekend. WoW! This sounds like a complete stash of crap if you ask me.

Too bad for my son’s teacher. I am a very involved parent and she is not going to enjoy having me around. Not only do I want him bringing home his books over the weekend, he’s going to be doing some work over the weekend as well… and if she doesn’t allow him to bring them home, cool. I want the next to the best thing. She needs to spell out what he’s covering right now and what he will be covering for the following weeks so I can home school him… that way I WILL know that he’s getting the lesson.

This is how I was brought up (that I had to do 3 times as more work to be seen as equal to my white counterparts) and I don’t see how such has changed for minority children today.

>>> No wonder American children are failing and falling behind other nations when it comes to graduating and succeeding in life, they aren’t expected to do homework. The teachers are simply teaching the children how to pass the grade level exams… screw being the best you can be and being encouraged to go beyond what the teacher’s lesson plan dictates…

Labor Day Weekend : Putt Putt Golf

Posted by MomOf2Boys On September - 6 - 2009 ADD COMMENTS

About a month or so ago, me and the boys went to Sam’s Club (on a Friday) looking for some fresh shrimp and catfish, except the fresh seafood lady wasn’t it. BUT what we ended up with was some discount tickets for Putt Putt Golf (I had to break up the bowling. I think the 11yr old is a bit tired of it).

Anywho… so we went to the nearest Putt Putt Golf location to only find that though they did have a batting cage, they didn’t have any attractions. So we head out to the location out in Hurst because that’s the location the oldest wanted to go to.

Well, we get there and boy I should have known it was going to be packed. There were birthday parties all over the place. Children running around like lil’monkey’s out of their cage… it was really a site to see.

Well, unfortunately for the oldest, he missed being able to ride the big kid race cards by less than an inch… HmMmM! The Putt Putt dude could have let him on… come on… are you serious… LESS THAN AN INCH… Are you serious?

Anywho… the 11yr old opted for the Water Ride. The tickets we got from Sam’s was purchase one attraction get one free. It should have been more like… don’t purchase any tickets because the ride attendant isn’t one for following ticketing rules. The first ride he went on was free. The guy didn’t even ask for his ticket muchless check his wrist to see if he had an all day pass… But hey… today was his lucky day.

After riding the water ride and getting squirted at like mad crazy… and having water splashed on him, First Born decides he wants to check out the batters cage… Now why did he want to do this… and with me… My son knows that I am a very athletic person and that I am not one for wasting money…

For some reason, he conned me into believing that he was into the sport of baseball… heck, he has the bat, the mitt, the balls, the gloves… and the helmet… I thought he was a certified PRO at the sport… Boy wasn’t I fooled… He barely knew how to attack the plate… and to prepare himself for the ball… Needless to say, we are going to have to work on his batter’s stance… Heck, one never knows when it may come in handy… especially with bullies popping up all over the place…
