    I'm a softie today.
    I'm letting a kid lie down because she says she may "boot".

    Since I've learned a new word, she gets to stay.

    What does it meant to "boot"? I've not seen this used as a verb.

    I believe "boot" is a more New England/Northeastern US word...had a boyfriend in college who was from CT and he used this all the time. Haven't heard it since until now.

    So thanks for bringing back old college boyfriend memories

    A 2nd grader bumped his head on a corner in the cafeteria because everyone was "going nuts for the cookies," so hard he had a welt there. He ate lunch in my office and then walked over with one of the beloved cookies and said I could have it!

    I'm so proud of one of my kiddos. Same kid I've mentioned before who came to see me like 80 times her freshman year. She's a senior now (19 years old) and has this weird lump on her earlobe- almost like an abscess. I told her yesterday to keep an eye on it and if it gets worse to talk to mom about going to the doctor (forgetting she was 19 at that time). She came in earlier and it is a little worse today, and spreading to just below her ear. She called and made a doctor's appointment all by herself to get this looked at. And they got her in this afternoon!!! She came down to my office to tell me. I said "Look at you! Adulting!!!"

    She's gonna check in with me tomorrow and let me know what they say.
