Being a responsible parent.
My kids bring home papers from school, and I roll my eyes.
The other day Emily brought home a paper from one of her teachers. This particular paper deserved more than an eye roll. It was one of those papers in which the teacher is making some sort of false effort to get to know your child.
Spend ten minutes with her, and you will know more about her than anything I am going to write on this silly paper.
But, of course, I fulfilled my duty, and answered the questions, which were:
What are your child's strengths, and how do they view school?
So, I answered.
"She is a truth seeker, who views school as a necessary evil in which she is forced to only learn inside the box."
Emily happily took her paper to school.
And clearly I won't receive the Mom Of The Year award.
