Once More With Feeling...Ok - Sarcasm

OK, I'm a blogging virgin. I asked my good friend Queen Goob if sarcasm was a feeling. She said yes and sent me over to another blogger who has it down to an art form. Queen Goob - my hat is off to you, as usual you were right. OK - so here goes...please be gentle, it is my first time. (Sorry, I'm rolling on the floor...I haven't said that in a LONG time!!!)

I have a few things I'd like to get off my chest...

What in the holy freaking hell are the administrators of our children's education thinking?!?!?! My oldest son is in the 3rd grade, he's 9 (he's also very sensitive...I'm kinda starting to worry about him...maybe). If he doesn't pass the Standardized Testing all 3rd graders are now REQUIRED to take, he'll fail 3rd grade...

Since when is causing the type of scream inducing fear I've been living with via my 9 yr old son (Middle Child) a GOOD way to educate our children? I mean put a LITTLE more pressure on these kids why don't you? I understand that at 9 yrs of age a kids should know a few things...but some of the home work my son is bringing home these days has my eyes bleeding. I BARELY made it out of Algebra 2 in high school, and I was kinda smart then! How in the world is a 3rd grader supposed to know what he's been getting? (I'd explain a little better, but I don't know what they're doing in math to even help him with his homework!)

I have a parent teacher conference next week with Middle Child's teacher, so hopefully she'll be able to explain it to me a little better...so I can stop feeling like a dumb ass back wood hick parent (hey - wait a minute - I AM that parent!).

Speaking of children...does having them actually make a woman stupid? I mean I know having a child growing inside of you is one of the most beautiful things a woman can do, but does that mean that the baby we're incubating is stealing all our brain cells? I'm...well, I was gonna put my age...I'm in my mid-30's (you know, it doesn't look any better on screen than it did in my head) - I should be smarter than a freaking 5th grader! I'm not even as smart as my 3rd grader!

UGH!!! Sorry - I know I'm rambling...I have that problem. I'm going for help, honestly...

And NOW you know why I yanked my children out of Florida's public school system and enrolled them in private school. They have grants and financial aid, too!

Mark my words, the counselor next week will do nothing but tell you how important it is to pass the FCAT......FÜ¢K the FCAT!

But I'm just sayin'.
