I wasn't expecting any homework for them the first few days. It was me that I was worried about. There's the emergency contact form, the allergy form, the can you sign this after you go through the handbook with your child form, the who is picking your child up after school form, the media release form... need I go on or do you get the picture? Now multiply that by 2.
And add a few more. Sigh...
Along with the standard papers that come home every first day of school for the past 4 years I've been doing this school gig, GG had some additional forms. I was spared going through the handbook with her, but had to go over the policies for not one, but 2 teachers she has this year.
Just when I thought I had every "t" crossed and every "i" dotted, I saw them. The questionnaires. *insert daunting music here*
There was the form from her actual teacher. What subjects does your child excel at? What subject does she struggle with? What are her hobbies? Name 5 things about your child's character. Easy questions and I think my child's teacher should know more about her early in the year so there aren't any surprises along the way.
Then I came to the questions from GG's math teacher. This teacher saw my girl compete in a math competition last year. She knows she excels at math. She even commented to me about GG doing problems above her grade level (actual proud mom moment here). Due to that experience, it probably wasn't necessary for me to fill out those questions, but I did so anyway. They were easy peasy. Until the last one.
That would be the question where I completely blanked out and forgot how to spell. And I wrote in pen. Now GG's math teacher probably wonders how a smart child came from such a dumb parent who can't even spell.

Unlike the husband, I actually do know how to spell and rather well, thankyouverymuch. There's just a handful of words that I constantly misspell and one of those ended up on that questionnaire.
Until next time...
