What Goes Around Comes Around

So this is what it's like to be a parent. I mean, I've been a parent for 2 years now, but I'm talking a parent of a school-going child. Granted, David is only 2 years old and goes to preschool, but I am now experiencing what it's like on the other side of the teacher's desk. Having taught for 8 years in grades kindergarten-4th grade I have certianly seen many a young man or young lady with less than desirable behavior. And, in those 8 years I have had to report countless incidents or events in which a child was doing something inappropriate. And, so, here it turn. In the one month David has attended his preschool I have received more incident reports than I can count on one hand. I check his folder every afternoon dreading what I may find. I enter his classroom wondering what tales of hitting, biting, scratching, or general destructing and terrorizing I may hear. I just know David is the kid that the teacher hopes may be absent for a day or two. I know teachers think that because I have thought it before! I guess karma does exsist.


  1. WHAT?! You mean to tell me David isn't perfect and not the Champion like his father?:) The two's can be tough but they do have lots of good moments too:)

  2. Dear Lauren:
    Your karma is good, you made it through all second grade with my
    boy and for that you are my hero and my friend forever...
    Boys are just boys...don't forget that, got to love them
