Freedom of Speech...Not Always a Good Thing

I took DB to her first speech session at our public school today. This is what I got when I asked her to smile for her “first day” picture. Will you please pray for her teacher? LOL

DD was her true self, too. When we first arrived at the school, it was obvious that the principal
(an aquaintance from my earlier years as a school administrator and board member) was having a tough morning dealing with a very rebellious child. The school officers were eventually called to handle the situation. When the principal came back into the office where DD and I were waiting he smiled and started this conversation.
Principal: Hi. How are you? What brings you here today?
Me: Our little one is in speech here.
DD: I’m the bigger one!
Principal: Yes, I see. You are really growing.
Me: Looks like you’ve had a busy morning.
Principal: Sighing…Yes, I have.
DD: Just a little TOO busy, huh?
(Another one of my "most embarassing moments")
Luckily, the principal just smiled and said, “She’s very intuitive too. Isn’t she?”

(Just another justification for home schooling DD) LOL

Hee-Hee, Haa-Haa.

Well, I dropped S.G. off this morning all by herself. I watched through the rear view mirror as she walked into school all by herself. She is such a BIG girl now. I already have plans to start volunteering in her classroom, and am going to sub orientation on the 11th.

I love the picture of DD "smiling" for her first day at school. I have a feeling that she is inheriting her dad's sense of humor--not through genes, but through osmosis! Love you all! Aunt Muhl

DD just continually cracks me up and DB has to have the CUTEST cheeser grin on the planet! ; )
