Work Rant/Cute Kid Story  
I had a meeting yesterday with the new Education Director of the Theatre.  (It sounds so official, but it's someone that's been a good friend for YEARS - he's gonna be GREAT, although it is kind of strange that someone who is like a son to me will now be my boss.  Gah, I'm old!)  I very clearly stated what I wanted to teach, and gave suggestions for how things could be improved, but I have the sneaking suspicion that it won't matter, and the classes I want to teach more than any of the others will go to someone who knows jack sh with less formal training and experience than I have.  

Never mind that I was unceremoniously stripped of classes I had taught for 3 years at the beginning of last year.  

For no good reason.  Twice.  *grumbles*  

That's a long story that I don't really want to rehash right now.  Anyway, I should know by Monday what it'll be.  Playwrighting & Playwrighting Production, certainly, but two more that are yet-to-be-named.  More money, more time, more teenagers to love!  And I really do love it.  It's certainly not the pay.  ;)

So we're at the pool yesterday (my life is so tough) and we see a lady (We'll call her Amy) there that we haven't seen in probably 6 months.  Aaron comes up to say hello to her son, who is 10 months younger than he is.  They are standing next to each other, and Aaron is a good 8 inches taller than this kid.  

Amy.  Aaron!  You must've grown a foot since I saw you last!

Aaron.  *looks at woman like she's nuts*

Me. (trying to teach son manners)  Aaron, she asked you a question.

Aaron.  *looks at me, picks up his left foot, looks at it, looks back at Amy*  No.  I just have two, still.

I waiting for the inevitable question to come:  "Mommy?  When do I get to grow another foot?"

Sometimes, he really is. You know how that goes, though, right?

Oh! That is so cute!

I also hope your new boss gives you all the best classes--you deserve it!

I don't know that I deserve it, but I probably want it more than anyone else!

Your kids are adorable. They always seem to be doing something cute! (I bet you wish they were like that all the time, though!)

Yeah, they're a regular laugh riot.

They're okay. They've got a weird sense of humor and are pretty great when they aren't trying to beat the snot out of each other. =P

LOL, I find it so cute when kids take things so literally. :D

Adorable! :D
