I planned to post a recipe today but yesterday we got 8 inches of snow and had a snow day. We also still had a parent teacher conference in the evening that led to a rather 'interesting' conversation.
Isaac has been having a rather frustrating year because he is basically a well-behaved and respectful kid but he has 2 extremely strict teachers who penalize students for extremely minor infractions.
During parent teacher conferences the one teacher mentioned she can't stand having disorderly lines of students (Isaac tells me they have to line up in height order and stay in perfectly straight alignment) and she gets annoyed because Isaac fiddles with his football too much on the way to and from recess (and yes, he and the football can become irritating). He finds her need for perfect lines aggravating (Who wouldn't?).
During the car ride home with Isaac and Diana, I was trying to let him know that everyone has their pet peeves in life that tend to get blown out of proportion and said,
"You each have issues that drive each other insane. Her lines make YOU crazy. Your balls make HER crazy."
A momentary silence fell over the car, followed by a snort from Diana in the backseat. Then all hell broke loose as Isaac nearly hyperventilated while laughing and I almost veered into a tree trying to regain composure.
