Smart Patrol

15 May

So this morning we had a kindergarten evaluation for Bee at the school she will be attending in the fall. Needless to say, I fully expected her to either (1) rock it, or (2) freeze up under the pressure and attempt to climb back in to my uterus while weeping hysterically. Luckily, it was the former.

When another parent was getting the rundown of how her son had performed, I couldn’t help but eavesdrop. Well, what I mean is that I totally eavesdropped for the purpose of comparing her son to my daughter.

The biggest issue I have with the upcoming school attendance is trying my hardest to avoid sounding like “that” mom. You know, the one that we all hate because she thinks her kid should be in MENSA while the rest of us wonder how a kid can eat that much paste/crayons/boogers/dog food without having a serious medical reaction. Even using the term “gifted” makes a significant amount of bile rise in to my throat.

But that’s definitely what Bee is. Luckily for me, I still have the idiot savant, Bug. But I’m just kidding, that statement is not entirely fair.

He hasn’t quite displayed a savant-ness yet…

PS: Obviously I don’t really think that Bug is an idiot. To be fair, when Bee was his age, we were worried that she was going to be crawling down the aisle at her wedding!
