What FUN these parent/teacher conferences were!!!!
STRAIGHT A'S FOR TWO
AND 4 A'S AND 3 B'S FOR ONE!
CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION!!!
It was so nice to hear what wonderful children I have... of course... I don't get to see these great kids, but it's nice someone gets to!
After the initial..."Well, He has straight A's, he's a great student and kid..." we spent the rest of the time just chatting and laughing and talking about our lives and our parenting styles..
IT WAS AWESOME!
Don't throw up... I know I sound like one of those Mama's whose kids are perfect and everything is wonderful... COME ON!!! YOU KNOW ME BETTER THAN THAT!
It is just a good day... yeah!
Now... how do I get my 14 year old to stop brooding. I've had about 3 months of it... and from other Mama's I've heard it lasts for about 6 years... and that just will NOT do. I can take about one more week, and then I'm done!
He is just gonna have to snap out of it!
Life is too short!
I have to say though.. this morning, he was getting out of the car for school, he walked a few steps, stopped, turned around, came back to the car, opened the door, crawled over the passenger seat, and planted a big kiss on my cheek and told me he loved me.
I asked him what that was for... and he just said he felt like he needed to do that.
Whatever the reason... I'll take it, any day of the week.
When I told him he got straight A's again, he perked up.
So maybe he's just concentrating a lot, and working hard, and maybe I'm just being over sensitive.
We are off to have a celebration dinner OUT! OUT!!! We never eat OUT!
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day to be neighbors... won't you be mine... could you be mine...
