New Thing #354: Read A Report Card As A Parent

Report_card

This seems like a small new thing at first glance, but as a parent reading their kid’s first report card from the other side of things it’s huge. And I couldn’t be prouder.

My little girl brought home a glowing review from her JK teacher with nothing bad to report. On top of that, we found out that she does a bunch of things at school with a smile that we get a tantrum for at home. Kids, whatcha gonna do?

We had a little family moment around the dining room table going over her teacher’s notes and let Audrey choose a big weeked reward for a job well done. Now let’s see if she can keep this up for another fourteen years. Lord knows I couldn’t.
