So every year, Punkin does projects in school for Mother’s Day and Father’s day. I’m assuming this is almost universal. This year, her second grade work actually reflected how she felt about us a bit more than the disproportionate stick figures from previous years. Don’t get me wrong – they make me look super skinny, so I’m all about that. But it’s nice to hear some of the actual words behind the sentiment. Except that maybe second graders still struggle to find the right words to really express how they feel. And they may struggle to find the right pictures, too. At least I hope so, because these are the highlights from Punkin’s Mother’s Day and Father’s Day projects.
Mother’s Day Project
- Lazy bum.
- It’s all about me.
- Eating is awesome. Times 2.
- I maybe get it right sometimes.
Father’s Day Project
- I’m awesome. And aggressive?
- I’m awesome again. And still maybe a little aggressive.
- I’m basically a superhero. I own this parenting thing.
Obviously we know that Punkin kind of thinks we rock. Which is good, because we try really, really hard to be good parents. I shudder to think about how many mistakes we’ve made, and have yet to make, but given that Punkin is pretty much amazing in every way, I’d say we’re doing something right. Also, I may really raise the bar and get out of my sweatpants today. Take that mediocre parenting.
