can someone please explain to me

how the girl who never shows any at home could possibly win an award for being student of the month when the character trait being celebrated this month is self-discipline?

March 29, 2009. parenting ain't easy.

    One of my friends tells me it’s a good sign that CG is having big ol’ fits at home these days and apparently being a model citizen at school–a sign that she feels emotionally secure at home. Plus kids are smart–more fun to push big buttons at home!

    It reminds me of when my mother went to a parent/teacher conference and the teacher said, “Oh your daughter is so nice and pleasant and hardworking.” And my mother felt confused and said, “I’m STACI’S mom…”

    Kids somehow turn into other people when their parents aren’t around…

    Oh, that happens here all the time. My kids are always claiming it’s because we can’t send them to the principal’s office if they get up in our faces. And they’re completely unconvinced by the argument that we ARE the principal.

    Congrats on the school performance, though. Yay.

    It’s like hearing how well mannered my girls are. They certainly don’t show those manners at home 😀

    Seriously, the Bee is just another Jeckyl-Hyde kid. JR is quiet and reserved for the most part at school and a wild little loon at home. And I had a friend who went to school with my rowdy little brother who told me: “If you didn’t know he was there, you wouldn’t know he was there!”
