    It’s never good to make poopy during a yoga class. I feel your pain, young Master Rutherford.

    I feel that he is overqualified for this Pre-School

    clearly his stints at ‘Broadway Babies’ and ‘Kids at Art’ shows a complete lack of focus and commitment to an artistic discipline. Sadly, I think it’s the thin envelope for Master ECR III…off to public school with you, son.

    My pre-school resume kicked your pre-school resume’s ASS.

    Obviously your child is well suited for Peabody’s Pretentious Pre-School. We offer lessons in Gucci wearing, hip music-listening and nose down-looking. Check it out.

  11. Would be funnier if it weren’t so true. But there are more and more of us who are resisting all this pressure and stupidity, and trying to just relax and let our kids be kids. If you’ve got wee ones, check out my site
