So Ana feels miserable and flu-ish. Eva feels miserable because she got her new dental appliance. I feel miserable and congested. I'm sitting up here, eating Biscoff cookie spread out of the jar (mmmm!) and Callie has just now come and decided that is delicious. Well, it is, but if I'd known she'd cram her entire furry head in the jar and lick it up like it was going out of style, I might have put the lid on.

Eva's spelling has her writing dictated sentences. Before she starts, I follow the neatly written script and remind her that a sentence has to end with a period or question mark.

"Or an exclamation mark!"

"Yes, but no. Look, it says right here: 'Exclamation points are overused in children's writing and should not be encouraged.' They're absolutely right, too. Stick to periods and question marks, kiddo."

She then proceeded to end every single sentence with an exclamation point. Gosh, who could have ever seen that coming? Since then, every time we get up to writing sentences, she recites the one about exclamation points being overused in children's writing and giggles. So long as she's happy?

We got home from swimming and I just basically collapsed and let the girls do what they wanted. I think they ate dinner...? Or apples or something anyway. I may have cried.

Other than *that*, it was a great day. Ana had a one-day class at the AMNH, and I got to hear all about how brilliant she was afterwards (she asked me why I like hearing that, and I was just like... uh, the alternative is to hear that you're a dolt with poor hygiene and worse manners, so I'd rather hear that you're well-behaved and generally wonderful?) and Eva and I wandered around and joined a tour and learned quite a bit.

LOL, one school group in particular kept bumping into the two of us, and I overheard a teen saying to her friend "That's NOT a beaver!"

"Yes, it is, it says right there - Mountain Beaver!"
"Oh, well, I don't read"

Clearly, neither does her friend, because right next to the words "Mountain Beaver" it states that they are not beavers. I didn't interrupt the kids to point it out to them, though.

Doing math in the living room, trying to get it done before running to the orthodontist (15 minute trip there in car service, 5 minute visit, 20 minutes waiting for the bus to go home, half hour bus ride followed by 10 minute walk... geez), and Ana needs help.

So I'm walking her through converting ratios to the unit rate, and what does this mean, and if you find out that the unit rate is THIS much, how much is THAT many, and Eva is chiming in on every one of them, which, you can imagine, frustrated me no end.

Finally I get Ana situated and turn to Eva and say "Here, let me start you on spelling, you must be done with your math".

"Oh, no, I don't understand this at all!"

She doesn't understand fourth grade math, but she's whizzing through sixth grade math. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THESE GIRLS.

Why yes, yes I did. I spent the whole day thinking it was only Tuesday!

We are fully back in the swing of school. We did math. We did history. We discussed why nomadic pastoralists invaded settled areas 4,000 years ago, and why we have to guess instead of just googling the shit out of that. We compared their possible reasons then with modern day conflicts between herders and farmers. We did a heck of a lot of reading and spelling... and more reading, because I had a new kindle book to read and that doesn't make me a bad person. I was Setting a Good Example. I ordered a candy thermometer so we can move along in science.

And then after school was done I sat in my chair and had a sore throat. Ana was sick the past 4 days, and Jenn not much better, so I guess now it's my turn to feel awful. Bah.

Every year, you look back at what was published and bemoan the fact that such a teeny tiny percentage features protagonists that fit in any axis of minority, but the advantage of this is that when you find one, they're generally better written than a random book from the non-diverse-at-all pile. It's like they have to work harder and harder to get published and put on the shelves, so they're super great.

That museum is less overpriced when you realize that they station a docent at, like, each exhibit. Because kids never read the instructions to find out what they're supposed to be learning :)

Poor Ana was the victim of poor planning. She'd been under the weather over the weekend, and with the museum and all we ate breakfast relatively early but then didn't eat lunch until about 4, and no snacks, with the end result that she got a headache and fell into bed as soon as we got home.

In other news, Ana was talking about migraines and auras over breakfast the other day, and Eva revealed that she gets the auras too. But no headache, just "pain in my eye". Yeah, Eva, um, that'd be a headache, and headache + aura = probably a migraine. This isn't really a surprise, but I wasn't thrilled to hear it.
