Like Father Like Son
As I sit and watch other children receive their praise for various deeds of scholarly improvement, I will hold my breath with anticipation and trepidation, knowing that this in now my only son, a representative of his family. He is the reflection the small town see's on my ability to parent and cope. Nothing like a little pressure on an eight year old.
Last year he was rewarded for not visiting the principal's office for three days in a row. Victory! It was a proud moment for me. The year before he was rewarded for finally learning to sit quietly in the library. Do you notice a theme? So I am curious to see what sort of improvement my boy has made this year. Maybe he finally learned to stop chasing the girls and hiding their shoes.
I'm so proud of my boy. He's best friends with the principal, he knows proper library etiquette and he's a ladies man, through and through. Just like his daddy.
