Student of the Month

March 30th, 2008 · 3 Comments · None

Oh Wednesday afternoon last week, I got a telephone call from the BoyChild’s teacher. I didn’t really think it was anything bad because he’d been gone from there for hours, so he couldn’t be in any trouble.

The BoyChild had been selected as Student of the Month for his class! Yahoo!

The very cynical me thought that they must take the number of students in the class, divide them by the number of months they are actually in school, and assign each child a month.  I did not, of course, share this with the BoyChild.  Or with anyone else except for the entire internet.

The big assembly was scheduled for Friday. On Thursday it had been so hot we had to turn on the air conditioner.

On Friday morning I picked the BoyChild’s clothes and decided since it had been so hot, and surely would be hot again that day, that he should wear shorts.

The high on Friday was 54°F (or 12°C) . And it was significantly colder at 8:25 when he walked out the door to head to the car.

While he was student of the month, I failed at being mother of the year.

    Oh, no, you didn’t fail at all. Think of how awful it would have been for him if he had been wrapped up and it had been miserably hot! Then he might have become the Exploding Student of the Month…

    Congratulations to BoyChild! WAH-HOO!

    Yay for him! It’s a great moment for him, even if it is highly prearranged.

    (And don’t be so hard on yourself. )

    Congrats to him!! Regardless of if pre-planned or contrived. He must’ve felt grand!

    Eek – we’ve all been there on the Mother Nature pulled a fast one on us. I’m guilty of dressing my kids too warmly. It pisses them off.

    Take care.
