Mean mom

Sadly, this is the first news story I read this morning: <a href="" >'Crocodile Hunter' Steve Irwin killed by stingray</a>  My family has enjoyed his shows many times, and my oldest son does a pretty impression of Steve.  Sad news indeed.


Am I the meanest mom ever?  It is Labor Day and I am planning to do school today.  I see no reason not to, it's a weekday like any other, and Dad is working today.  I did, however, allow the boys to sleep in, as we had company yesterday evening and the kids were up very late.  So we will start school about an hour later than usual, but we WILL start.

We heard about the Crocodile Hunter last night. We are pretty sad, Billy cried. It was heartbreaking to see my big strong grown up 10 year old crying, and of course he didn't want his Dad to see him!

We are also doing schoolwork today, so if that makes me mean, at least we're in it together!

Steve Irwin was the first story that I saw this morning too. WOW. Very sad news. I was a fan. And it is sad that chances are, He didn't know Jesus. That is what makes me the most sad.

You can't be a mean mom. You just can't. Because if you are, that means I am too. ::insert evil laugh::

today was our first day of school. :-) I need to get blogging about it - but I wanted you to know that you're not mean at all. Take advantage of the time, is what I say!!

Thanks for sharing about Steve Irwin. We (I) loved him around here - so thanks for that heads up.

Happy Labor School Day!!

It is indeed very sad. We found out about an hour after he passed. They hadn't even notified his wife yet. His poor family.

And I don't think you're a mean mom. We would've done school had daddy still been deployed. But seeing as it was his first day home, we didn't.

I love comments! It's like visiting over a virtual cup of coffee.
