Oh boy!


Last week the boy’s High school hosted a “Meet the Teachers” night, which my hubby and I attended. Failing to bring a pen with us, I took notes via my IPhone. “What are you doing?” My hub whispered to me. “Taking notes” I replied.”Good idea” He said and I smirked. Then as luck would have it, another parent shushed us. Ah yes school is back in session.

When we arrived home I looked at the boy and with heavy concern in my voice I said, “Oh my God bay!! I’m so worried for you. This year is going to be HARD! You need to turn in your homework the moment your feet touches the threshold of the classroom. They will not be asking for it…this is all up to you!!” Looking back at me he nodded his head and said, “I’m already aware of all implications”. “Are you?” I asked again. “Yes Mom, where do you think I’ve been the last three days? All of the teachers have explained this to us thoroughly” he replied. “But bay…I mean it…they are not going to take any shit from you!” I kept trying to emphasize. “Mom!! I got it!” He raised his voice and frustrated his reply back to me.

Looking back to is father we both sighed and said “We hope so….” We really really do.
