weekly perk. #22

weekly perk.

I apologize in advance for being such an annoying mom. But I just couldn’t help myself with this. 

When I arrived home with the kids after school today (last day), they handed me all kinds of papers and folders and such. [I have no idea what I’m going to do with all of it, but being the person I am, I’m sure I’ll keep it all. I have a problem.] Included in their piles of stuff were their report cards.

report card.

Both of my kids received one A (94-96%). And five A+’s (97-100%). I know… it’s just elementary school (grades 5 and 2) but I don’t care… they are amazing. I love these kids so much. They care about school and they want to be the best at everything. [Hell, I have to caution my son because he’s apt to be too hard on himself. Sorry, kid… my fault. Damn genetics.]

My daughter also got a special award, hand-delivered from the principal, for being one of only two students in the whole school with perfect attendance.

I will stop gushing over my kids now. I promise. Hmm… until my son kicks my ass at mini-golf. Then he’ll want me to tell the world.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
