Flapjack Friday Faves [05.24]

Happy Flapjack Friday!

I’ve decided to dedicate today’s FFF to my sweet son who graduates high school today.  I’m not exactly sure why I’ve never been asked to give a graduation speech [go figure], but if I was, I think I’d simply read the following over and over, because it’s what most graduation speeches sound like.  Not really, I’d write my own, but it seems like a good idea.ImageI will interject, I don’t recommend quitting your job in every situation.  I am someone’s mother, after all. But, for the most part, I agree with the rest.

This is taken from  10 Life Lessons from Calvin & Hobbes

FFF quote for the classical music fans in the crowd:  Put all your soul into it, play the way you feel!  – Frederic Chopin

Warning, this is advanced music theory/scientific info that my son will understand.  Feel no shame if you don’t:

Interesting article on raising children, especially geared to those of us who have artistic and/or academically high achievers:

Presence, Not Praise:  How To Cultivate Healthy Relationship with Achievement

And last but not least, I’ll finish with a SHOUT OUT to my son, who managed to obtain a B in a college credit calculus class this semester.  Way to go, Jam-i-o!  You can now forget all the math you’ve ever learned, sans addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.


Happy Memorial Day weekend, friends, and congrats to all the grads!
