    who tell me kids are weird or misfits.  I live in small community with one of the smallest school systems in the state.  I chose to move here for that reason thinking smaller would be better.  As it happened my children ended up atrtending a Catholic school due to a variety of reasons.  One example of this concerned two sisters who were smart, accomplished and cute.  They were being teased mercilessly in school and the other moms were excusing it by saying the girls were weird and they opened themselves up to it.  This was so mean and out of bounds my anger flared immediately and I took them to task.  In later years they raved about how nice the girls were etc.  I think they remembered my "lesson" and were able to see the girls for their wonderfulness.  Also helped that they turned out way better than all of the kids of the problem moms.

    And she's good at appearing sane, I just want you to know. Winwood/Capaldi
