My daughter's sperm donor.....

Need I say more. He never ceases to amaze me. Just when I think he can't be any more brainless he outdoes himself yet again!
Here's the story:
My 8, soon to be 9 year old, is in the 3rd grade. She took her VERY FIRST Ohio Achievement test a month or so ago. She didn't do very well at all on the practice test, in fact she even stunned the teacher she did so poorly. So she worked and worked on the things she had been taught and practiced them over and over again. She took the real test and was proud of herself, felt good about it. Well Monday she got her test results. You have to have a 400 to pass the OAT. She got a 407. She was sooooo excited. She called me as soon as she got to her grandma and grandpa's after school, "guess what mom, I got a 407 on my test! You should have heard the excitement in her voice. My dad, who I am sure doesn't really know what the OAT is, said, Boy she sure is excited about that test score isn't she?
Fast forward to after basketball practice.
Now she wants to call her dad with her exciting news. She says, Dad guess what? I got a 407 on my OAT, again with the same excitement in her voice as earlier. Then all I hear is silence from my daughter, an occasional yea, uh huh, from her. I hear his voice through the phone going on and on and on about something. Then, Ok, bye, she starts bawling. I am talking sobbing. I ask what is wrong and she says, My dad called me DUMB. ok, I am fuming It takes all I have not to pick up the phone right there in front of her and call him and give him a piece of my mind. I try to soothe her telling her that I really didn't think he called her dumb. She said, my dad said that that score is a score that dumb people would get. I can't get home fast enough to get her in the tub and out of her earshot to call this bastard! Needless to say he apologized in the end. But come on!!! You can only expect so much out of a 9 year old. Hey, she was over what she needed to pass the test...Mom is happy! I believe in making your child do the best that they can do, but that includes a little bit of praise here and there.
Macy...mommy, and sissy and John and everyone else is proud of you!!! Keep up the great work!!! We love you!!!

Did you say Bacon & Eggs?

Ok, so we had to dress up and coordinate our promo with our outfits at work....

This was ours:

Tired of not makin' the bacon? Get rid of those bad eggs and call Mancan...
where we only serve up Grade A , pre-screened, pre-qualified employees!!

So I sent out some letters....

About 6 so far. To people with the last name that we have associated with John's adoption. We got a letter back the other day from a lady. She really isn't related to anyone by that last name in the area...but she was very nice and encouraging. So....we are still trying!

My new habit....

I have found a new author I really enjoy reading, Meg Cabot. She isn't really new as she has a lot of books, but she is new to me. I have read 4 of her books in about a week or 2. Love her. Check out her website: . Not sure if you will like her or not Kim, and by the way the Jodi Picoult book I was reading, Keeping Faith, I couldn't get into it, so it is yours when you want it!!
