I Set My Alarm This Morning, Got Up & Made Tea…

The boy was still in bed and told him to get up & take his shower before he went to school. He started telling me he had said that there was no school today, the day before Spring Break starts. That it was a parent-teacher conference day. We went around & around about it. If he had told me I wouldn’t have set my alarm to wake up. Then they said on TV that his school district plus two more in the metro area had cancelled school today for teacher conferences. Told him it wasn’t scheduled and he didn’t tell. He did say yesterday that there wasn’t much going on at school today which implied that school would be held.

He was lying, then? Geez. He is a good lad though. Kids sure do love their snow days or parent-teacher days. I don't think kids really appreciate, when they are young, how much we really do for them. The early mornings. The chaperoning. The buying of gifts and cards for parties they go too. All the clothes shopping. They appreciate you more and more as they get older. That makes up for it all. You are so good to him. And you love him and he you. It is a great relationship you have. That circle of love. :)

@PoetryNEmotion I hope so but who knows, he wants to be right

@cherokeepatti He is old enough to know the difference between right and wrong and the truth. You are teaching him well. He is at that difficult age.

@PoetryNEmotion I think he learned some things from his mother that he does not want to end up like her life has been. It is a powerful lesson

Gotta love how kids have very few words

@MarineBob he kept trying to argue that he told me that he didn’t have school. When it came on tv as a “cancellation” I told him he never spoke of that. It’s like I am supposed to read his mind or something.
