Ever since my youngest was born, not only have we had an inseparable bond (he’s mad at me because I’m going to New York City on his birthday next month), but I’ve always known that he would give me the most trouble. He’s stubborn. He’s opinionated. And he doesn’t take no for an answer. Almost like me.
Sometimes his personality gets him into trouble. Like when he climbs the bathroom stalls at school. Or knocks over his desk because he’s messing around with something inside when the teacher is talking. Or he’s talking when he’s supposed to be eating in the cafeteria (seriously, I don’t need to see the conduct form just let him partake of the natural consequences of not eating lunch because he’s talking, you’re fighting with a horse here y’all).
His ornery behavior also has another consequence. It’s called: Mom is embarrassed when Spring Open House comes because her kid is the second worse kid and it’s displayed with proof on the first grade wall.
Each six weeks all the kids have the opportunity to earn a “Golden Eagle.” Mine has earned ONE. And that was the first six weeks. There’s only one kid in his class worse than my youngest. ONE. Which is of course why I’m always apologizing to his teacher.
Thank goodness my youngest is also the World’s Best Butt Kisser by “sneaking” apples, oranges, love notes, weeds with flowers on them, and Mountain Dew (his teacher’s favorite drink) and giving it to his teacher at school. Have I ever mentioned my nickname growing up was “brown noser?”
Now for the rest of Spring Open House:
The real stuffed armadillo a teacher brings to school every year.
My two good sons.
My middle child says the most important thing about him is that he likes to watch movies.
“Mom, if I have to hear one more time how my 5th great-grandfather sold land to George Washington which became part of the Mount Vernon Estate I am going to die.”
Those crazy kids and the crazy teacher. Actually, we really like him.
And probably the most important thing is that we start Texas Pride young.
I seriously hope that kid straightens up.
Oh and his teacher is getting an extra good gift when Teacher Appreciation Day gets here.
