My older boys only have one more full week of school.
We are quickly winding down to the inevitable end of school parties, projects and events.
Reid(6) came home today with the excited announcement that his first grade class earned the last needed tally mark on the board today to receive a Popsicle party next Wednesday.
He reported that the class received tally marks for good behavior and not talking in class and they needed to get to the 10th mark before next week to make the party a reality.
It must have been touch and go for awhile because he expressed some surprise that his class made it to the necessary tally mark total.
Ryan(9) started downplaying the class’s achievement to which I responded with a Shush! and a mommy look.
You know, THAT mommy look.
The mommy look of don’t say another word or else the world as you know it ends today kinda look.
Ryan shot back with a WHAT? followed by this gem…
I can get a Popsicle at school anytime I want one. All I have to do is get hit in the mouth and make my lip bleed.
