In a matter of hours my home will contain 30 adults and 16 children (pretty much all 5 year olds). The holiday party (we also hosted last year) is in many ways pure madness. So to preserve a shred of my sanity I have removed Loki and friends from the line of fire.
It seems like the smart thing to do since snatching Loki from a child might forever cement my status as ‘crazy mom’ and I was really hoping it would it at least be a few years before these kids came to that conclusion…
And yes Hulk is wearing an ugly holiday sweater which will be featured in upcoming photos… ;)
Hidden alway also because last year Hulk was absconded with. Legally, I’ve been told as my daughter was asked, but that’s my Hulk and nobody asked me!
The Hulk- “If you don’t like way Hulk does dishes then Hulk no help next time!!”
The Hulk- “Hulk say no joy to the world!”
A chaotic start to the holiday season pushes Hulk’s rage to global proportions.
Realism is an important aspect of Lokiafterdark…
Sleipnir- “Mummy!! I caught him peeping again!”
(grumbles) “I can’t wait until Thanksgiving is over…”
Happy Thanksgiving from Lokiafterdark!
Loki- “I have a feeling this turkey is a voyeur.”
Thor- “Don’t be silly Brother; he just likes to watch.”
when will america learn….
We won’t learn, because our education system sucks
Instead of treating kids like machines in a factory, being created into obedient workers. It looks like in Finland they’re treated like actual humans.
it’s also because all teachers there have masters’ degrees, and teaching is seen as a prestigious profession like medicine or law.
What’s actually wrong with American schools is not that they’re not like Finnish schools.
What’s wrong with American schools is that they’re an outdated relic of the early 20th century, where the object was to train a child to have the mindset required to work in a factory job long hours of the day, as at the time that mandatory public school was instituted, that was the main expectation of children.
As the industrial age faded and the US entered the era of private sector jobs, the education system failed to reflect that change, and they’re still training us to have the mindset for an industrial job, not a job in today’s job market.
The problem with American schools is not that they’re not like Finnish schools.
The problem with American schools is that they’re preparing us for jobs that no longer exist.
That bold text.. 😔
The Hulk- “Hulk like Annual Asgardian Turkey Murder!”
