Thank you all for your advice and perspectives on the homework issue. When I picked up Ari from the afterschool program on Monday he was — doing homework and helping a classmate to boot! His first words to me in the car? “Is my punishment over? Will I get to see Jude this weekend?” Not seeing his bff and having to spend all day Sunday — gasp! — doing homework was pretty rough on him. I have a feeling he’ll be completing those homework assignments, at least for a little while.
So now, it’s onto work. As you read this, I’ll be on a flight to DC to help out with this event:
What: MomsRising’s “Have a Heart, Save Lives” gathering for reducing gun violence, with performances by the World Children’s Choir, and
When: February 14, 2013, 11:00 AM EST
Where: Lutheran Church of the Reformation on Capitol Hill (212 East Capitol Street, SE, Washington, DC 20003)
If you happen to be in the area — please do come! And if you know other moms who this would be of interest, please pass along the invitation.
What else is in the news? What’s up with you?
