"No, Back Up!"

The other day we were at the park and as we were leaving I was explaining to you what we were going to do next. I typically do this so you know what to expect. I said we were going to pick up Wendy's and take it home to eat. You just got a new little table and chairs and so I said you could eat at your table. Your response was, "No, I don't like Wendy's."

I thought it was a bit odd for a barely three year old to have an opinion on fast food, so didn't think much of it. Wrong!

I drove to Wendy's and as I start to order, with urgency, you say, "No! Back up! Back up!" Then you said, "Chick-fil-A! Chick-fil-A!" You were talking as I was ordering and so I didn't stop to really process what you were saying until I was done ordering and then I cracked up.

I doubt I'll ever be able to go to a Wendy's again without thinking of my strongly opinionated three year old granddaughter!

SB 61, Charter School Equalization Bill Delayed Until Monday

After about two hours of debate on the floor of the Senate, SB 61, which would equalize mill levy funds to also include charter schools, has been laid over until Monday.

Numerous anti-charter school Senators spoke against the bill and offered amendments that would either gut the bill or weaken it. In fact, Sen. Zenzinger (Arvada/Westminster) offered an amendment that would have made the entire bill permissive instead of mandatory.

As it was, there were several compromise amendments added to the bill and it will remain in that form when it comes up again on Monday.
