click to enlarge (notice the exclamation points)Not only can I not do a black flip, I'm obsessed with cleanliness instead of more important things, take a nap while he's at school, and can't even come up with a pet name to call him. Well at least he didn't disclose all my other weaknesses here and hopefully he keeps my name safe from now on........yeah right when kids say the darnedest things. I don't think teachers should be asking such personal questions any how.
Oh yeah, how do you know what I do when you're at school anyways? Little did you know that I mowed the lawn and weeded while you were there yesterday. You think the lawn mows itself when dad's out of town? And I sat around and let you guys make a mess and didn't make you clean it up. Remember? I spent an hour trying to help L relearn to ride a bike while you and A rode yours too. I was sweating bullets and my back hurt too. I've been a single mom for the last four weeks (minus weekends). I even drove to and from Jackson Hole alone with the three of you and didn't kill us even in the middle of the night with all those freaky deer. humph. Ok fine I admit I frequently do take naps in the afternoon. So what? Did you know there's a study that shows people who take naps have healthier hearts? huh, huh, huh? Didn't think so. Don't you want me to have a healthy heart and live a long life? I guess I'm a little disgruntled which means I probably should get off my behind and be a little more enthusiastic with my motherly duties. Next year, this sheet is going to read:
My mom cannot not do anything.
My mom is the happiest when we are productive, industrious little individuals.
My mom gets mad when.......she never gets mad, even when the house is dirty because she realizes that a clean and perfect house is not as important as spending good quality time with her children.
My mom's pet name for me is busy bee because I'm always working away while my peers waste their time watching t.v. and playing video games.
While I'm at school my mom does all sorts of creative things including crafts, making meals, spending time with my brothers one on one, and taking care of the neighbors.
I love my mom because she's perfect.
