DISCLAIMER: My picture has disappeared and i CAN’T FIND IT! I guess this means I have to remake it 😛
Hello. My name is Heather. I’m pretty sure my child is a video game addict. Seriously. I’m not kidding. He’s a great student, but he seems to have problems this nine weeks. He brought home a progress report a few weeks ago. He hid it from me at first. He told me later that he was scared to show me and needed to get his nerve up to give it to me. It sorta’ broke my heart. Needless to say when I opened the paper he had given me, I was completely disappointed in those grades. Never, ever has he made below a C…and only 2 or 3 times his whole entire k5 career has he made a C. He instantly had a sad face and said “Mom, I guess I’m grounded?”. I felt sick. My heart was instantly sad. I told him no. However, I also said we’d talk about it later. After talking to his dad we decided that if his grades didn’t come up by report card time that he’d have to be grounded from his electronics until his next progress report came out. I was surprised by how well he took it. I told him that he needs to understand that when he doesn’t tell the whole truth, it’s still called a lie. He’s had a lot of problems in school lately. I’m hoping that we’ll get through to him. I’m just wanting him to make it through the grade.
I think what bothers me a lot is teachers get busy. They have so many kids and never enough time. I just get so discouraged and upset because I feel like I never hear anything at all good about this child of mine. Everything I ever hear is bad…It seems like every time I go to her with an issue that’s went on at school, he suddenly is being called a liar. Her words are “he doesn’t tell the entire truth”, but maybe to him…he is? What hurts me the most is, when he doesn’t understand things, he’s afraid to talk to her about it. He’s stated to me that he feels scared and unheard a lot. That really upsets me. I’ve tried to talk to her about things, but she now wont reply to me. That just bothers me even more. She’s a good person and I have a lot in common with her. I also think she’s a good teacher in general…but for whatever reasons, she’s not good for us. Sometimes two personalities just clash. It’s really where we are. We have a few more months and we are done. I just need to pray for strength not to let my mama bear continue to show!
4-6 pieces Chicken breasts
4 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon white pepper
1.2 teaspoon garlic powder
1.2 teaspoon pepper
1 onion, halved
Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Combine salt and other spices in a small bowl. Rub evenly onto chicken. You can place this in a zip lock bag overnight in the fridge. Take apart onion and put in the bottom of a slow cooker. Add a little water (a 1/4 cup will work fine). Cook on low 6-8 hours.
NOTE: Mine was baked covered in an oven until finished. IF YOU DONT LIKE SPICY FOOD remove some cayenne and make it a pinch, because this was wayyyy too spicy for me and I tend to like spicy foods.
