Fourier Analysis is a mathematical tool which can do a number of things: separate out signals from noise; help identify patterns or trends in data; filter out all unwanted data and focus on a single signal; use approximations to make generalizations; make approximations of real world signals (think electronic music); combine harmonics to get a stronger signal. That's what I'll be trying to do here!! Won't you join me with your comments?

15 things I Say to My Daughters. Every. School Day

Yes, school has now started here as well, and we seem to be back into the same old routine...

1. Good morning! Did you sleep well?

2. Can you please pick up the clothes you left piled on the chair/floor /bed?

3. Have you eaten your breakfast? Did you drink your milk?

4. Please put you dirty dishes in the sink!

5. Did you brush your teeth? Be sure and wipe you face, you have something around your mouth.

6. Is that what you are going to wear today? Is it clean?

7. Do you have all your books? Well, then get them and put them in your bag now!

8. Did you finish your homework? Do you have your homework in your bag?

9. Have you packed your lunch? Do you have your snack?

10. Did you put your drink in your bag? Is the lid closed tight?

11. Do you have your bike key?

12. Please take a jacket, it can rain later. And please brush your hair. Well then brush it again.

13. No you have to wear your bike helmet. I don't care that other kids are laughing. I want you safe. Even if it messes up your hair. Just tell them that your mean old mother makes you.

14. I love you. Be careful. Have a good day!

15. What did you forget now?

(sigh)

Csara said...

LOL! You have me laughing with this one. My son is only 2 so not school-aged yet, but I can just imagine.....

Virtualsprite said...

Do you have a bug in my house? I think I say those exact same things! Too funny.

anno said...

Too familiar! What a great list!

Worker Mommy said...

Yep, I too have said most of those.


But lets add "don't do that" , "be nice to your brother/sister", "play nice" ...all that fun jazz!

I love that! I do the same thing, especially #13. I use that one a LOT. "Blame me for everything. I really don't care one whit whether the other second graders think your mom is horribly mean. They'll think I'm the best mom on earth when I bring ice cream for the class party. So there."

Jen said...

LOL, especially the hair part in 12. That, "well, brush it again" thing is WAYYYYYYY too familiar!

This gave me a great big 'ole smile!

I love your list, I remember those days! Now my youngest is in high school and has to be up and out the door by 7 a.m. so about the only thing I'm able to say "h'lo, bye"

Jenn said...

I'm tired just reading all that. My kids aren't school age yet but they'll get there and I'm sure my mornings will be quite similar to that.

I'm already rehearsing for those mornings. I can just imagine myself saying all those things. Great list.
