I’ve been through this before……when I graduated from medical school and felt compelled to demonstrate to people that I could save lives……or after I took a cake decorating class and needed to “show off” my new skills. Well, only now, my new adventure is homeschooling these 2 sweeties….so I feel the need to show you how “educated” they are. I jest….sort of. You do somehow feel this pressure to reassure society that your kids are in good hands. Like when I was at the board of education today turning in my homeschool forms, I kiiinda wanted the girls to recite something, or I don’t know….read the plaque on the wall aloud. Instead , they dismantled her name plate and showed off their most recent abrasions. ( her quick assessment: This woman has destructive kids who get hurt alot). So, humor me, okay? Ooooh and aaaah at how smart they are and how industrious of us to memorize such a swell poem. If nothing else, be entertained……they’re awfully cute. Oh, and in case you wonder, Emme keeps looking down at Scooter who is mauling a small stuffed rabbit.
