For your Littles

I’ll be up front on this one. I was involved in this very early. At the time I happened to be teaching pre-k. I tended to get to school really early so my room was ready before the kids got there leaving my time to hang out with them before assembly. It didn’t take long before the kids were clamoring for this app. They would sit with me and play nicely for hours if I’d let them (okay, that might have been my presence.) The next year Agnitus introduced reports, but I wasn’t teaching pre-k that year. The graphics are beautiful and the kids enjoy it. Your kiddo will be ready for pre-k or kindergarten or first grade in no time.

The Rock And Roll State Of Mind Boxed Set is Here!

SendDown is one of the biggest bands in the world, but the four men are broken.

Tired of bickering, Rick wanders away from recording looking for a good time only to find Tara who just wanted to warm up on the beach, but Rick offered something so much hotter.

Angie needed a job, which was the only reason she agreed to pretend to be Alan’s girlfriend to keep him on the wagon for the tour so he can get his kids back. All was going according to plan until she fell in love.

Gian could not believe when the new wardrobe woman didn’t want anything to do with him. He kept after her until he got what he wanted. But by that time he wanted forever.

Jenny loved Trent, but he was a controlling—jerk. Now that she has a daughter, she needs to be stronger for her child. Trent is going to have to learn to be Mr. Nice Guy if he wants Jenny and his daughter in his life. And everybody is betting against him.

What I’m Watching Wednesday: Sabrina (1995)

Sabrina (1995)I’ve watched the original. I think this one is better. In the original, Sabrina was a hopeless wet rag who tries to kill herself because she can’t have the man she pines for. In the remake, Sabrina is depressed that she can’t have the man she wants so she goes to Paris and remakes herself. Much better.

Plus, Harrison Ford is in it at his peak.

This was Jenny’s favorite movie in Baby Come Back and it fits perfectly.

Sabrina went away and remade herself, but came back still pining for the wrong guy.

Jenny was dumped, but remade herself and continued to pine for the wrong guy. (And Wally is RIGHT THERE, too. But Wally needed to hang on for Flora in Celebrating Flora.)

The wrong guy tries to woo Sabrina for the wrong reasons and realizes he needs to be wooing her for the right ones just before it’s too late.

The wrong guy tried to bully Jenny back into his life, but realizes he needs to change for her just before it’s too late.

See, it all works out. Watch the movie and read the book and tell me it doesn’t.

The pre-order sale for the Rock And Roll State Of Mind boxed set ends Monday. Not kidding.

Every villain is a hero in their own story

Trent really does think he’s a hero. He’s the one making sure the band stays successful. He makes sure the trains run on time. So maybe he has to try to chase off Rick’s new girlfriend. They can’t afford to have their bassist distracted by a woman while they’re recording. And maybe he has to pay a woman to pretend to be Alan’s girlfriend to keep him on the wagon during the tour. Do you know how expensive it is to cancel a concert? There’s not just lost ticket sales, there’s fines and penalties.

When the rest of the guys were okay with that, it was fine. They’re not anymore. Over the course of the 4 books in the series you get to see Trent’s ultimate comeuppance. It’s only going to be 99¢ for one more week, so if you haven’t pre-ordered your copy yet, don’t wait.

The Amish

Truth time! When I was a little girl my mother taught special education out in farm country. At the time special ed as new and there were bugs. One of those bugs was that the testing didn’t take into account cultural differences. That lead to a lot of Amish children being put into special education classrooms. They weren’t developmentally delayed, they just didn’t know how to answer the questions. Anyway, this meant that many of Mom’s students were Amish. I remember days visiting the farm and that big kitchen with honey colored wood everywhere.

I also happened to watch a documentary on Rumspringa which is probably the saddest thing I’ve ever seen and it partly played into this story.

The entire series comes out in 2 weeks and it’s on sale now for 99¢. The price goes up on release day.
