a) Why yes, I am wildly excited.
b) Why yes, I did intentionally go check just to see if the Pulp.it picked it up, because I knew that although the odds were not great, I would be wildly excited if they did.
c) And they did.
In real life: The mild sore-throat thing turned hard-core evil. SuperHusband’s been felled, which is actually helping school stay on track, because when he’s awake, he says to any moving child, “Have you done your school work?” and they quick go look busy. We’re doing that in shifts. And my first grader can read.
Bleg #1: What are your favorite late-elementary aged, non-specific learning disabilities, help-me-learn-to-read resources? I have a real-life friend asking. 4th grader, strong auditory skills, still waiting on the school to get their act together and evaluate difficulties on the visual processing and motor skills end, per mom’s reports, meanwhile mom wants to do what she can in the afternoons, without spending $ frivolously.
Bleg #2: Favorite readable, top-quality, Catholic resources for chastity, sexuality, NFP, Theology of the Body, all-that-stuff, target audience is parents and kids in late elementary – high school*. Because I talked someone into letting me write a review round-up of resources, and I know what I think I’m going to cover, but you might know about something I’ve missed. Need to have my media in hand by the first of January so I can read and review and write for an early February deadline.
*The answer is not Love and Responsibility. We’re talking readable. Things you leave on the back of the toilet, and your teenager sits down and reads the whole book, because it was interesting, made sense, and was an effective way to stall at doing the dishes. That genre.
