(ok... he's doing that buck teeth thing on purpose... :D little nut bar...)

Good morning!! :D Lovely day huh... :D

So there's sunshine and beautiful air wrapping the world outside the windows... or, as they say on the radio... Thunderstorms and rain. Freaking weather people are idiots. The worlds biggest, fastest, and most complex computers are pressed into service to support the process of meteorology. All that geek and they totally forget to stick their damn heads out the window and look around. "There's a 60% chance of thunder storms today, with sunny patches and a possible accumulation of 18 millimetres of rain... " Yeah right... and there's a 99% chance that you're a dick head and have no idea what you're talking about. It's summer. It's gonna rain every now and then. Wow. Wait... lemmi guess... it's gonna get dark tonight too.

Our boys headed off to sport camp today. They spend the next week at camp and getting a) all tuckered out (weeee) and b) having endless buckets of fun. The camp was actually set up by one of the teachers at their school... years ago... it's a big business now but it rocks. :D

wearing
~ blue ftls
~ dk blue dockers... go'head... just try to wrinkle 'em. :D

planning

~ that ehme would not scratch!!!!
~ for all kinds of success to find no1topaz as she starts out on a little project... (cool play on words there eh Misha? "little" project... ar ar ar ... ok ok sorry).


// mini rant.
So here's the thing... the government ... all of it... federal and provincial... keep shouting about day care and dollars for day care and transfer payments from the feds to the provinces and new "spots"in day cares opening and quotas and ... and ... and ... and a freaking endless stream of politicizing about fucking day care. What the mother fuck is wrong with people taking care of their own kids? No... I'm not against day care... and I totally respect that most people these days have to "both work" in order to make ends meet. Fine. But why does the government have to spend a fat-funk load of my tax dollars on setting up day care centers when that only ends up being a punk ass institution that will no-doubt end up on the evening news.
Am I totally in the dark? What is wrong with private day care services? When we needed it... we took advantage of day care with a woman down the street that provided a service to a few families. These people are the answer - in my opinion - and they should be getting big honking tax breaks and incentives to run in-home day care.... they should be rewarded and praised. And you can stop taxing me more and building little pre-pre-school schools for babies.
AND... because it's the thing that REALLY BURNS MY ASS... where the fucking hell is my tax break for biting the bullet as a family and electing to do without a bunch of income by having a stay at home mom. I have two children and my wife has pretty much been a mom for their entire pre-full-day school lives (she intends, as has been our plan all along, to go back to work when both kids are in full time day programs at school). And there has never been a single dollar of tax relief on my tax return as we struggled to make ends meet in this family.
Soooo... the message is... You will be punished if you dare to try and raise your own children.
Screw that you rat faced politicians.
Go ahead and build your day care institutions and raise my taxes to pay for it. You'll get what you pay for baybee... and you paid me NOTHING... so please expect a healthy does of that in return.
//ok done!
