*silentsanta awards the congressional medal of sneakiness to possums #1 through #4.

Happy Birthday pmomma.

Maybe she has porn blockers? There are all sorts of ways to keep control of what kids encounter. If you don't know about such simple solutions, perhaps it is your parenting that sucks. Besides-they could be chatting with someone any time of day. 10:30 on a Saturday isn't that late.

Happy Birthday pmomma!

And from my experience, blogspot always tends to show the wrong time stamp for the time zone.

Happy B-Day, PMomma!

Happy Birthday!

There's always one jerk that tries to spoil a special occasion. Don't swear... that's a sure way to hell; at least that's what religious loonies told me when I war growing up.

Happy birthday pmomma, and well done possums.

Does anyone else feel that the sweetness of what the Possums did was sullied by anon12 taking a dump in the pool?

The time it took for the possums to put up their little message was minutes. And they probably were on again off again quick so Pmomma wouldn't notice.

I hope someone cleans the pool so it feels all cute and fun again in here. Even if it means deleting my post too. :-D

Hope you have a fabulous day
P-Momma!!!!

That P#1 is a smart one. :)

Yeah... I'm still trying to figure out WHEN the possums did it. :) LOL We had another couple, with their two girls, over last night...and I barked at them to get off the computer, at one point. LOL I now know why they giggled and ran off. :)

Happy Birthday! I had no idea it was your b.d. and if you told me so and I forgot, please forgive me!

Hope you have a good one. :)

Heheeeee... I was just telling Virginia that the funniest gift was from my mom (who doesn't like to acknowledge that I'm an atheist). She bought me my own copy of Hitchen's book about Mother Theresa (I'd checked it out of the library before). She is under the impression that it's a flattering portrayal of MT. DOH!

I got a new pair of pajamas. :) I *heart* pajamas.

Hubby got me Vic Stenger's book.
I got a movie and some music. :)

Happy (one day late) B'day, P'momma!
(Not to steal your thunder, but a week from today, I pass the Big Five-Oh....)

Happy Birthday!!!!

I was going to mention it on the show (when I vaguely mentioned you) but I've been a bit more cautious about exposure.

She is under the impression that it's a flattering portrayal of MT.

That's pretty shocking...we are talking about "Missionary Position", aren't we?

Yeah. She didn't read the book jacket, obviously.

Awww... :)
I've been waiting for the audio to pop up on the site, so that I can listen to today's show.

Happy birthday for yesterday!

Hitchens' book is fantastic, and if you haven't read it already then you will enjoy it.

Obviously your mother didn't know that he also had a book out entitled 'God is not Great'!

Happy Birthday, PMomma,

I'm a late-comer to the party but I want to wish you belated best wishes. If I knew how to contact you I would, it goes without saying, send large sums of money or deeds to prime real estate to observe the special occasion. Lacking such contact information, I shall instead offer up a sincere, but humble, limerick, to mark the day.

For reason, wit, charm and elan,

We should, just as fast as we can,

Hit the site that is awesome,

For its gaggle of possum,

Atheist in a mini van.



I will of course be somewhat despondent if I don't at least make the short list for the Pulitzer after this momumental effort, but being an atheist, I am quite accustomed to having my work discounted, misunderstood and ofttimes misrepresented by the majority. But, PMomma, should it transpire that this pivotal work - almost on inspection one senses it precipitating a literary paradigm shift and quite possibly ushering in an entirely new intellectual genre - fails to garner the accolades it undoubtedly, perhaps even self-evidently, deserves, please know this: you, PMomma, are a class act. I deeply appreciate your work which is always interesting and timely, and seasoned to suit my tastes with just the right zest of wit, and essence of charm. Adding an exquisiteness to the experience is the occasional Possum A La Carte. Clearly, I'm not alone in these sentiments since you have many regular readers and commenters who express this same view. So, PMomma, though I am but a single voice from a much larger choir, I do want to belt out just a few solo measures from what appears to be a really catchy refrain: I'm really glad you blog.

Happy Birthday and Best Wishes Always,

Russ

Happy Birthday!!

Hi,
I have known this family, sort of, for the last six years. Six years ago, the oldest possum was my student. Since then the family has become sort of a district legend. P1 and P2 are not "some" of the brightest, they are "the" brightest children I have ever seen. I'm hoping to have P3 in my classroom this fall. This family goes so far beyond "smart". I wish you could all know the family I know and love.
P2 is a perfect gentlemen. He opens doors and is always the first to volunteer to help a fellow student. He is witty and sarcastic, but always polite. He's the bees knees.
P1 is gorgeous and sweet. I have never heard a mean word cross her lips.
Pmomma is dedicated and "there". Some parents claim to be "there", she really is.
Pdaddy is just as dedicated - he even came to help out, with pmomma, in my room numerous times. I can always count on them to be there even after their kids leave my room.
I will never forget the first time I watched Alexis unpack her lunch; hummus on whole wheat, homemade pitas, blueberries, carrots and celery with peanut butter and raisins, and a thermos with milk. The first and second grade team started calling it "brain food" because these kids were just so well nourished and you could tell that some one had put thought into their every need. As a teacher, I can't tell you how refreshing that is.
I am excited that P3 and P4 are coming up the ranks now. This family is the sort of family that every teacher wants and so few children have.
Have a great summer, possums!
