Who are those kids and why do they keep calling me mom?
I saw a lady with that saying on her shirt this weekend and also saw a really cute coffee mug with the same saying. When I see a cute mug, I almost think I should take to drinking coffee, but then the smell....yuck! I digress....yesterday was parent teacher conference day and really I know I have great kids...but when you go to conferences and they all tell you what great kids you have...you kind of wonder....me? (looking around for anyone else in the room) you mean me? The one who has mommy guilt A LOT....the one who's not sure if they'll someday be on Oprah speaking of what a screw up I was? Me? Really? Why....thank you, thank you very much...anyway...I put in the 13 hour day and hustled my hiney to the school. (I only made the middle school conferences which peeves my big girl...but next time...I promise to hit the high school too) -- All good reports....for my sonshine..."stays on task, ignores distractions, stays away from the misbehaving kids, works hard, has a great sense of humor" and for my precious one..."does all the right things, is so conscientious, hard worker, ask questions, tries really hard". I guess I didn't report on the midterms that came out a few weeks ago...Steph I think all A's and one B, Brennan all A's & B's & one D in science due to some work that hadn't been turned in, Kristina All A's but one B in Algebra. She insisted on getting some tutoring for Algebra cuz really, a B is just not ok with her....(I'm not really sure where she gets that from, but let's just say someone they know really well has straight A's in grad school :) I went home to find they had even done a little bit of picking up around the house. I did a few loads of laundry, watched Y&R, collapsed into bed at 11:00 and thanked my lucky stars for these kids that call me mom.
