This weekend I was casually looking up private kindergartens here in Philadelphia. One of the applications I found has the following questions listed:

Listen, I understand asking for a kid’s medical history. Also, feel free to do an in-person interview and evaluation of my son.  Everyone would love that. But my medical history is none of Patrick’s potential future educators’ business.  

Gotta love the not very subtle implications that these things could have a negative impact on a child’s ability to be successful in life and in this expensive as fuck school.  GOTTA CONSIDER THE ENTIRE SITUATION, RIGHT? 

But at least that’s one less place we have to consider.

Very little grows on jagged rock.
Be ground. Be crumbled.
So wild flowers will come up
Where you are.

You have been stony for too many years.
Try something different. Surrender.

I need to buy birthday presents for four year old twins that we don’t know *that* well. 

  1. What do four year old kids like to play with that won’t make their parents hate me?
  2.  Do I get each of them the exact same thing? Or get two different gifts and address it to both of them?

Thanks for the help, Tumblr peeps.
