What's Going Down

Thursday, May 10, 2007

The truth comes out.

So, Mother's Day is on Sunday. Always a holiday that makes me laugh. This year moreso than before. Here's why:

Abbie was sent home from preschool today with a laminated "certificate" for me. She did the standard "teacher asks open-ended questions for her to fill in." Had me near tears... yes, I was laughing that hard.

"My mom is special because... she tells me to clean up."

1. Yes, I do.
2. That makes me special?
3. Yes, I'm militant that way.

"I like it when my mom... opens my closet and lets me take one toy."

1. This totally deserves it's own blog post.
2. It's true.
3. Judge me.

"My mom can do many things! She's best at... playing games on her computer."

1. Snood Slide rocks!
2. However, I barely play games.
3. I'm totally working on my computer. NOT PLAYING. (only a small lie!)

"My mom is pretty as a... flower."

1. Yeah, like one of those wilting ones.

"My mom is smart! She even knows... about reading books."

1. I can totally read.

"My mom has a pretty smile! I like to make her smile by... cleaning up."

1. See the first one.
2. Again, true.
3. I like a clean house!
4. You totally wouldn't know it by coming over.
Love you too, Princess!

I love those. Especially when the teacher asks questions like: How old is your mom? How much does she weigh? Not so bad when they're on the low side but when they put something like 500 lbs. it doesn't feel all that great.

Remember the coupon book I got from Bailey last year? She listed 5 or 6 chores she would do for me and then the last coupon read, "this coupon is good for giving Bailey $10.40 for doing all that work." How generous.

Having worked in many different classrooms, most of the things kids say about home life is not all that flattering.
