I’ve run through a number of updates recently, from WordPress MU 1.2.1 to 1.3 to a “release candidate” version of 1.5, to 1.5.1 proper, to a brand new install to fix some admin issues I was having.

Of course, I managed to blow away the former site header, which gave me a good excuse to post a new one.

And now maybe I’ll start using tags rather than categories. We’ll see. Wheee!

We weren’t thrilled with this year’s class pictures, so we did our own.

Emma was sitting in a chair with her
Golden Book of Children’s Hymns the other day…

 

 

Emma Sings 'A Hundred World of Songs'

 

 

…and she was “singing”

We learn something new every day!

Whups. Found this post just hanging out in limbo. It’s from a couple of weeks ago:

Emma says to me today: “Poop starts with the letter P!”

Niiiiiiiiice.

Interesting Precedent

We’ve been using the reward [1] system to get her to to eat her vegetables.

You know; “Emma, eat your vegetables, and you can have some [insert desert here].”

It often works, but the payoff isn’t apparently great enough for her to finish her spinach or asparagus.

This evening, she finished her peas, and then horked down all of her fudge, and half of Margaret’s. So I told her that since she ate all her fudge, she could have some broccoli!

Amazingly, she went for it, and actually ate the broccoli.

Strange.

  1. Yeah, I know. Another word for it is “extortion” or “bribery.” Though I prefer “direct compensation.”
