Pep Talk

     I gave a pep talk to one of my students today. provides the following definition:  pep talk (noun) a vigorous, emotional talk, as to a person or group, intended to arouse enthusiasm, increase determination to succeed, etc.  

     My goal was to get this kid out of his rut….inspire him, motivate him.  I am staring into these steel gray eyes thinking I am reaching him.  I pause at the end of my pep talk to hear his response when he blurts out, “You smell like coffee!”
      Take a moment to watch this wonderful pep talk by Kid President.  He gives a great pep talk and I bet he does not smell like coffee.

Why do boys enjoy passing gas?

      Why do males like passing gas so much?  My grandson, Cross, ate three bites of cabbage last night (hates it) just so he could possibly "toot" at school today. I have learned that anything involving poop, burps, and farts is uproarious to a boy (and still some grown men); they come hard wired this way.

That Moment when you Realize your Kid Ruined the Class Photo!

That moment when you realize it was your son that ruined the class picture by rolling his eyes into the back of his head!  (Front row, light blue shirt).
