A Few Surprises

My husband and I went along for the wild ride that is Back-To-School Night last night.

There were some surprises.

My daughter is shaping up to be a mini-me in more ways than one. She couldn’t stop waving hello to people long enough to actually make her way over to her Kindergarten teacher to greet her.  This, however, was not one of the surprises.

Sweetgirl shared her “All About Me” book with us.  It was filled with sweet little things like her favorite color – pink AND purple.  Also, not a surprise.

What was surprising was what she wants to be when she grows up.


And, just so ya know, she simply must be able to wear a pink hat. Oh, yes indeedy!

Moving along to Sweetboy’s room, we noted that Sweetboy is seated next to a girl.  Also, not a surprise.

He has a crush on this girl.

This was a surprise!

Also, he was directed by the teacher to show us his writing notebook.  In it, he chose to share with us a story that he had shared with her.  You may remember this picture from a few months back?  The one where I asked if he and his sister were near the creek?  And he assured me they weren’t?  Only, they were.  And I was able to snap a picture to prove it?


Yes, well, that caused quite a ruckus back in June.  They were not supposed to be back there.  Little sister was most especially not supposed to be back there.

It turns out, that Sweetboy is shaping up to be somewhat of a writer. He wrote all about it.  Allllll about it.  Really, child? Did you really have to write the exact words I uttered about your punishments?  I’m sure my parenting skills are up for debate in the teacher’s room.  I can only imagine…


Apparently, kids will tell people exactly what you said.


As a sidenote – if Sweetgirl decided to get baptized in a river any time soon, only Jesus, Himself, can lift this ban.  For, she is grounded from the “in the river” for 2 years.  Oh, yes she is!

  1. I’m catching up on your blog, and I have missed you! This post cracks me up! I love his story…he’s so honest. “but I didn’t listen…” It’s really sweet. I’m glad they were safe in the end. 🙂

  2. I’m totally LOL’ing about Sweetboy’s journaling of the punishments. That is SO something my nine year-old would do! Way to go sweet girl – girls can do anything boys can do, and look better doing it! 🙂

  3. Cutest little surprises ever! I just love getting glimpses into your world. And that right there might go down as the greatest Back-To-School Night ever! Love, love, love your little mini-me’s, both of them. Sweetboy, the honest and encouraging writer, and Sweetgirl, little Miss Congeniality. I adore them already, just like I do their Sweetmama.

  4. Ah! Just like other people we know and love; things are stored in the back of the brain until which time we will never know. But they will resurface “Yes indeed!”
