We had our parent-teacher conference earlier, and saw some of Chloe’s creative writing. She wrote some great stories, and at the end of the year, she’ll come home with her “portfolio.” And I can’t wait to get my hands on it – what fantastic memories of her childhood. And if ever she goes on to become a famous writer, we’ll have these bits of prose as proof of her early talents.
Apparently, Chloe sets the example for good behavior in her class. Which cracks me up, because that’s so far from the case here at home. She’s a great kid, mind you. But if I had a dollar for every time I’ve had to ask her to do something more than once, I wouldn’t be concerned about the shocking decline to our 401(k) accounts. But I guess we’re doing something right if she knows how to behave in public.
