We've been pumpkin picking, pumpkin carving, play-landing, church going, family bonding, birthday partying, story reading, snow driving, and picture making.

My poor computer is getting dusty.

I'm discovering that's a good thing.

BUT, not everyone has let their poor blogs wither away. Here are some of my favorite reads recently.

Melissa has tickled my funnybone yet again. It's the ultimate sitter instruction letter.

Beck has been taking classic children's stories and giving them a Halloween-y twist. These are NOT meant to be read to your kids. Unless you'd like your kids to stay awake for the next six months or so. But for adult who have to read these stories a bazillion times, well, Beck's takes are SO MUCH BETTER. Scroll down to read them all.

Antique Mommy reminded me of one thing I miss about teaching. The unexpected joy from a simple assignment.

I read this a week ago on Tonggu Momma's Sunday Linkage and it still makes me shake my head a week later. I really hate judging parents before I know the whole story and have walked in their shoes, but in this case I will make an exception. I hope they've saved up for their daughter's therapy.

Happy Monday!!

I usually try to remain nuetral when I post a link because I want to give people food for thought, not make them feel judged or validated. But this one? It got my blood boiling in a huge way.

Hey hey! Thanks!
I DID read some of them to my oldest. But she's 10 and also used to me.

I just read that link from TM's site. NO WAY. What on earth are they thinking? I am....speechless.

My favourite was the Scooby Doo one - and NOT just because I was stupid enough to buy the "Early Readers" from Scholastic, which make me want to pluck out my eyeballs, just to not have to read them again.
