Lesson of the Day

There has been a continuous theme during Luke's elementary years so far......
The things that run through my mind every year?

"I wonder how bad the teacher thinks my parenting skills must be?!
"If they just knew how many books I've read and prayers I've said!"
"Oh gosh, what will he do next?"

The "moment of truth" happens from about 3:32 to 3:33, as I learn what excitement he brought the classroom on that particular day.

On Wednesday, he told me about their Lesson of the Day, synonyms. I had not really seen him this excited about actual classroom content before. He began explaining what synonyms are and how he had provided several examples of synonyms to the class. Ah, finally a proud parent moment. I listened intently as he told me his examples.....

Bottom - Butt
Toot - Fart
Poop - Turd

I should have seen this one coming. Truly. I am guessing the teacher has a sense of humor because I didn't get a note or phone call.

Other lesson of the day? Boys will be boys and God isn't finished with mine yet.

Hahahahaha, at least he is paying attention in school, right? ;) I know the feeling. Whenever my boy has been in trouble, even if it isn't a big deal, it always makes me wonder what they must think of my parenting (especially since I am a big disciplinarian). But then I have to remind myself not to fall into the trap of worrying about what others think (easier said than done) and remembering that my kid has a mind of his own and no control freak tendencies of mine are going to be able to conquer that! ;)
