Parent Teacher Conferences. Let me first say that I have always been very proud of my boys' academic achievements. They are very bright and often times (I stress those words) make wise decisions.
The conferences proved very beneficial to hear. Everything was not all rosy. They both have essential things need work (some organization, a little silliness -- you know, they things WE have to work on). But in the scheme of things, this is part of their development.
All that being said, I am ridiculously proud to be their dad right now. They still need to take out the trash. They are learning and being challenged so much in school. I hope they start washing the dishes without me asking them to. The teachers had a lot of great things to say about them. Can you please clean your room, though -- like for real?!?
No real points...I am just very proud and honored to be their dad. And I'm gonna let them know it. Just make up your bed please.
