This is Seraphine Darby. Are iStudent and iParent the same thing? If
so, what is a iParent access key? I need to be able to check on my
grades without having to rely on my parents. Besides, I want to be
able to fix the problem before my parents find out if possible.

(he answered her very quickly telling her to go to the office to get it setup) That last sentence was just too good not to share tho! AHAHAHA 🙂

She got caught off guard with a very bad grade and is working on fixing it this week! I’m happy to see her thinking about being proactive with her education.

How even mom has “look squirrel” syndrome

Ok so I was behaving and looking for a very simple gentle yoga video on YouTube and just as I find one I notice “Minecraft Style” on the sidebar of recommended videos…..I can’t resist and pop it open into a new tab but drat it was taken down due to copyright… it clearly states it’s a parody but oh well I know it’s out there somewhere….. I found it…..


We proceeded to laugh uproariously while watching it. OY! Back to my nice calm yoga video now… my neck is nudging me into realizing I really need it!

Justice’s Procedure for Coffee

Justice decided that I needed coffee so he could make pancakes this morning! So he proceeded to put together coffee for me:

  1. 4 handfuls of coffee beans into the grinder (his hands are smaller and that’s what we’ve figure out to be the right “measurement” for him)
  2. Clean out the coffee press – ok no biggie
  3. put ground beans in the press – easy enough
  4. add water….errr he added tap water which is pretty hot but forgot that we usually use boiling water oh well!
  5. press the coffee without making a mess – mission accomplished for him
  6. pour into a mug add sugar and half & half —UT OH it’s kinda cold now…..
  7. toss mug into microwave to warm up coffee and lovingly bring to mom

First taste….

“ummm kinda cool isn’t it?”

“…. yeah I had to microwwave it….”

“didn’t you boil the water?”

“… DOH! ummm no I micowaved it tho so it would warm up a little!”



“are you awake enough now to help me make pancakes?”


Searches internet for recipe… finds a video recipe for him to watch. He’s delighted and just needs ingredient amounts called out to him.

In between the calls of “What’s next?” I hear:

“ERRRRHHG! an egg just fell!”

“Clean it up!”

So now we have pancake batter and he’s cleaning up the mess from that before he starts actually cooking.

Cooking has commenced and soo it looks like we’ll have some pretty darn good pancakes!
