J and His Books

J’s mom called.  Said she couldn’t come up to the room because her she has her newborn with her.  That’s crap!  She can come up.  If it’s important enough for her (and her son should be), then she can come up.

I hesitantly agree to give the books to his sister the next day.

But the next day, J has a TERRIBLE day.  There is no way I’m going to give those books to him with that behavior.  So I tell him to inform his mother that I have changed my mind.  She is going to have to come up.

Okay, here are the books we’ve read.  We started out with “Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.”  After that it was “Holes.”  Then we read “Beezus and Ramona.”  Now we’re reading “By the Great Horn Spoon.”

And here’s another thing.  Why do I need name tags?  Besides the beginning of the year, when I’m learning their names, is there any other reason to have name tags?
