Husband says that it is a good thing they are not excluding Boo. Me? I would (guiltily) like it if they would. I mean really after working all day and doing the after-hours therapy with Boo, cooking etc...should I really have to do homework? They know Boo cannot possibly do it!
Last week Boo was sent home with the letter bag. She was supposed to go around the house and find four things that started with the letter "A". Come on people, how was she supposed to do that? So Allie had extra homework that night and had to help Boo find things that started with "A". Here is what she put in the bag:
- Picture of Allie
- A from the alphabet puzzle
- Apple (totally blowing the whole no food from home during class in the classroom policy)
Then this week, what comes home? The SHARE bag (what we old folks used to call Show & Tell). Boo was supposed to bring in something she wanted to share. Really? Hey Boo what to do you want to share? Again, come on people!
So mom of the year that I am....I found two of the most obnoxious things that Boo likes. Bubbles and a Car that you shake and then it vrooms around the room saying Thanks Homeboy from Cars2.
Boo loves the car. She cannot work it, but she can shout SHAKE at the top of her lungs until you make it work.
Being the fair, mother of the year that I am striving for I held up both for Boo to choose. She chose the car. Yes, I am laughing out loud picturing the teacher with 12 boys in her class wanting to shake the car and Boo yelling them on.
I thought for SURE they wouldn't send home another bag. But nope! Last night it was a letter bag for "B". I'm sending in the bubbles....
Just wait until the "W" bag comes home :)
