Well, it finally happened! I knew my luck couldn't hold out forever, but the day has finally arrived: I embarrassed Lydia in front of her friends. It happened like this: We, the parents, were supposed to send encouraging letters to our 3rd graders to psych them up for their ISAT tests. (Big meany, scary, nation-wide tests that 3rd graders must take) The teacher smuggles the letters onto the childrens' desks for a nice surprise. Well, this I did, telling her how wonderful I think she is, how loved, etc. In the spirit of "The Kissing Hand," I put a lipstick kiss at the bottom of the page. Alas for sentiment, this was deemed highly embarrassing! She made the "mad toilet flushing" noise at me when she got home. (A noise she makes that's kind of a hiss / growl, which I call the "mad toilet" noise.) I should have known that kissing parents was embarrassing at this stage of development. I used to kiss Ross's hand everyday when he was in Kindergarten. He liked it very much, and it got him through a rough patch of separation anxiety. Oh well, I guess I should join the crowd of "uncool" parents!
This spot is reserved for my a select few favorites, which are guaranteed to be wholesome and wonderful in every way. EVERYONE should check these things out!
Of course I love the scriptures, but you already know that, right?
