Abigail brought a note home from her teacher on Friday. Her teacher wants to talk about Abigail’s behavior and performance in the classroom. I was so excited! I am certain that she is such an example to the other children that the teacher can’t wait to commend us on our parenting and ask us how she can train the other children to be such shining examples and model students!
I mean, with a face like that, who could doubt that she is anything but an angel in class?
Just in case that is not what the teacher has in mind, I suppose I will approach the situation with a humble demeanor. Abigail’s mom, (my first wife, Emily) was a gem in school and seemed to be in constant trouble. Actually, she was mostly good in school but was awful at home. Apparently, she told her parents that she could only be good so long, and they could decide when she would be good…at home or at school.
Anyhow, we are planning to attend the conference with Abigail’s teacher (tomorrow at 6:30 am) to see just what exactly is going on and to offer our services as parenting coaches
