Thank you for the words of encouragement concerning my fall, and the great advice for handling future young teen squabbles. I envision following Karmyn's advice of using a bullhorn to startle the students to stop fighting. Or use a megaphone to follow fellow teacher, Margaret's advice to "yell sternly, "STOP FIGHTING NOW, GENTLEMEN" or if one knows the kids' names, use them as many times as possible." I will save the use of the taser that the wise Willowtree suggests for inside the classroom. The next time a student says, "Whadda I do?", ZAP. Or the little darling that says, "Is this worth points?", then ZAP. (Kidding, I am kidding, but one can dream.)
On to other matters, awhile ago the lovely Pamela of Dust Can Wait recognized me as a rocking grandma. Being a grandma may be my fondest role. I am fortunate to have two lovely granddaughters.
Our oldest is three years old. She is a ballerina (and soccer player).
Our youngest is about three months old. In this picture, she is telling secrets to her grandpa.
