Mrs. Teacher: Frick is doing great! He seems to know so much.
Me: That’s wonderful!
(Duh! Of course he does…He has a teacher for a Mama!)
Mrs. Teacher: He already knows all of the answers!
(Ok…here’s my chance to say it…I’m gonna say it….)
Me: Well, what are you going to do to challenge my child??
(Totally tongue in cheek ‘cuz I know how it is in the classroom. That and the fact that he IS only three.)
I finally got to say it.
Ten years of teaching brought this question my way more than a bazillion times.
We love Frick’s teacher. She is wonderful with her class, she is my coworker, and my ‘mentor’ this year. I had so much fun being “one of those parents” and teasing her today.
I’m strange. I know.
