The one where she gets kind of school marm-y. Ish.

by Jennifer on June 19, 2009

Your assignment (trust me, it will feel like recess, but with a music and something to make you think. Plus, there’s Neil Patrick Harris.): Watch it. Pass it on. You’ll get an A for Awesome.

Also, I want to ask you to take a moment to visit a new website. Lordy, I’m bossy today, but you’ll thank me, I’m sure of it…

hahahaThe site is called CHEERUPNATION, and it’s the inspired creation of Brian Papa, who also blogs at PapaTV. (I met him through the T. Rowe Price website project not long ago, and he is one of the nicest, funniest, and most positive people I’ve met since I began blogging a year and a half ago.) We can all use a dose of happy, and I promise your day will get better if you take a look. Here’s what he says:

Every day we feature kids from all around the world holding signs with funny/inspirational quotes. Our goal: Make them the stars and create a movement of joy, love, and happiness!

It’s as fun and sweet as it sounds. You might even be inspired to get your own kids to make a sign and submit a photo.

All right, that’s all for today. Read chapters 12-29, don’t drink and drive, and is it necessary to TP my house every single weekend?

Class dismissed.


Thank you so much for all your kind words and encouragment about my last post. It means more than I can say, and when I tell you that it helps, please know that it truly does. xoxoxo

After you posted the Cheer Up site on FB last night, I sent the link to my wife. Now, my kids are making signs . . .

But, teacher, when’s snack time? Can I go to the bathroom? What are we reading today . . .

Haven’t watched the video yet. I will. But I did check out Cheerupnation. LOVE it. I will highlight on my site as well. Thanks!


PAPA June 19, 2009 at 10:17 am

Wow. Wow. Wow. Love you ALL!!!

Please join the fun and submit a sign!

And, Jen, I’ll find those TP bandits and cuff ’em to a tree!

Your homework assignments ROCK.
And I think you elegantly gave your old stepmom what for. Good for you to NOT stay silent and ignore her hypocracy.
