While rummaging through the storage closet I found this:
"If I had a million dollars I would buy an American Girl I like them a lot. Then I would buy a horse because i love any kinds of horses. then I would give the rest of my money to my family, Caden my little brother and my Mom and Dad. I love them a lot."
by C. F. 4th Grade
awwwh... I remember it well. I was sitting at a little round table at Parent/Teacher Conferences. The teacher, all prim and proper; in her nicely pressed dress, every button buttoned and her lace collar just so. Of course she went on and on about my "little angle". I remember watching her lips move as she spoke these poetic words. Oh my, I thought to myself, she must have me confused with another mom. Surely this is a mistake. I have to stop her before she goes on any further. But how?
The teacher must have sensed my confusion and asked me politely asked me if I had any questions. I told her that as much as I would like to agree with her, I just don't see the similarities in my child. Are we talking about C. F.? She giggled and reassured me that we were talking about my child.
Back then I didn't realize that your kids act one way at home and another elsewhere...at times. *lol!*
Anywho...I Love Love Love this short little ditty that my daughter wrote back in her wild days, back when I was a sceerd, sceerd fly by the seat of your pants kinda mom. This picture, and my daughter, on good days & not so good days... makes me all warm ~n~ fuzzy inside.
Sooo............with that said...
being the season of giving & all...
What would YOU do with a million dollars?
