I got 2 girls, going to be 6 and 4 in November, plus we recently found out we're expecting our 3rd child, due in March, just in time for the Leafs playoff push.   ;)

Congrats!!!

There's valid reasons for the limited interest. Get out of your basement if you dare. The real world will bend you over.

My daughter was player of the game in soccer last night!!!
(can we say woot now that it is officially going into the dictionary or is it still taboo?)

Truth is, they all get it once during the season - but she did have a heck of a game (played goal the first half, nobody scored on her.....although they only had 1 shot..lol....and had a strong second half up front).

She was very happy.....which makes me happy!

I thought this was cute.

A Child's View of Thunderstorms


A little girl walked to and from school daily. Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, she made her daily trek to school. As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with lightning.

The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school. She also feared the electrical storm might harm her child. Full of concern, the mother got into her car and quickly drove along the route to her child's school.  As she did, she saw her little girl walking along.

At each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up, and smile.  More lightning followed quickly and with each, the little girl would look at the streak of light and smile

When the mother drew up beside the child, she lowered the window and called, "What are you doing?"
The child answered, "I am trying to look pretty because God keeps taking my picture.

First day of grade 3! I'm not sure how other school boards like to do it but ours generally likes to seperate twins. Mine were kept together because their teachers and principal didn't see a need to seperate them - until now. This should be fun.  ???

There are twin girsl in my daughters grade - in the 5 years that we have been at the school they have never been in the same class!
I'm a little ticked off this year as there are virtually no other kids that she is close to inher class - separated from all of her friends. Good thing she is better adjusted than I am!

I wish I still had recess at work...........and that my Mom still made my lunch........and that I could build another baking soda/vinegar volcano.
Ahh the good old days..........

We actually spoke to the teachers in my kids school a couple of years ago.  My son seemed to always be in a class opposite his two best friends who were always together.  We were told they had more dominant personalities and they wanted the leadership abilities of ours to have a chance to grow so they separated them.  He graduated with straight A's on the honour role and started high school today.  Hopefully your daughter's teachers simply see a future class leader they want to groom.
Good luck to all parents dealing with the difficulties of hearding their children off for another year!

We've already been told of her exceptional leadership qualities both inside and outside of school (this is the bragging part of the thread) - I was just a little disappointed/stunned that she was with absolutley none of her friends (and she has many!).
Great accomplishments by your son! (it really can be so rewarding to be a parent)

My identical twin and I were only separated in JK and SK. After that we were in the same class all the way up to high school where our own interests in different subjects split us up.

He's still my best friend to this day and I am better off for being with him. I guess it depends on the kids though. I can understand why they may want to separate twins, but I'm glad we weren't.

Interesting... and good to hear. I hope my kids have the same relationship regardless of whether they were in the same class or not. I'm kind of glad they're being seperated (they were at each other's throats all summer long) but at the same time, I understand one teacher is a little more rigid then the other and hands out a fair bit more homework. It's going to be difficult for us to handle two children of the same age who have two entirely different expectations cast on them.

Especially if they're as competitive as we were.  :D
