You Have to be Kidding Me!

So some genius at Merlin’s school decided that he belongs in the gifted program.  Can you believe it?  I thought they had made a mistake when he brought the paper home yesterday and called to let them know that it is STARLING they are thinking of, but nope, it’s Merlin.  I am dumbfounded.  I marched right into the office today to ask them to test Starling again and the lady (and I use that term loosely) who is in charge said she had been tested and did not qualify.  Clearly there is something wrong with their testing but I guess it will be good for Merlin to meet some smart people instead of the hooligans he wants to invite over (which is why I have a no playdate rule with him).

 

Then today he came home with a violin!  Excuse me, but isn’t that a girl instrument?  I told him to take it right back but apparently it is a part of the gifted program.  I hope they are ready to replace it when he breaks it, because I am not.  I think I will call tomorrow to see if there is a more manly instrument he can play instead.

A violin!  They must be crazy!

I decided to try something new for dinner and bought some artichokes.  Does anyone know how to cook these things?  They are ridiculous.  I stuck them in the oven for hours and they were still all leafy and weird looking so I threw them away.  The children had all fallen asleep waiting for dinner so I poured myself a lil’ wine and relaxed!

How the hell do you eat these things?

Röbert is still camping with his buddies.  Or maybe not camping, I don’t know.  There are mountains there…is that camping or hiking?  Maybe mountain climbing?  I am not sure.

Does it look like mountain climbing maybe?
