It's Report Card Time!

As a parent, I want my children to do well in school.  I love that my children are bright kids.  They generally do very well in school.  Why do I feel bad talking about my kids' accomplishments when I speak to other parents?  

Some kids do just as well or better than my kids.  BUT there are those that don't.  And why must I feel so bad when I speak of my kids and their good grades?  I don't want to feel like that.  I want to be able to share how well they've done without feeling guilty, like I'm just trying to brag.  I'm not really bragging, I'm just proud.  I don't go on and on about it.  But, I guess I assume that all kids at these lower grades all do well in school.  And I'm wrong to assume that.  

So, here is another reason this blog can come in handy for my life.  I can be proud that DS1 had almost a perfect report card.  And be sure to know, he's been told about the little blemish on it. And DS2 was pretty close to perfect, too.  Not exactly sure why he can't keep the difference between an author and illustrator straight, but hey, it's kindergarten.

So, yes, I have pretty smart kids.  Hopefully the boys' little sister will follow suit.  But I have a feeling she's going to pass them up.  She's already too smart for her own good.

  1. There is nothing wrong with bragging about your kids and their grades! They work very hard to get them. My daughter who is in the 3rd grade has been on the A-B honor roll all year long. I am very proud of her because this is the first year she has ever done that! Keep bragging, you're a good mommy.
