    awwww...

    Means nothing except he's probably smarter than his teacher, haha...still has to be screened, may or may not cut the mustard.

    But it's one of those things that I can't share far and wide with the people who know us in real life (or even share with him, now) because then if he screens out we'd have to address it...

    But as a mom I think HELL YEAH! My kid ROCKS!

    The little brainiac!

    Funny thing...I got the call from the teacher, and thought he was in trouble...again. He has his days where his behavior isn't exactly stellar...nothing bad but he tends to smart off a little, doesn't listen, doesn't do what he's told to, bounces, bounces, bounces....is loud...busy active boy stuff. And I was pissing and moaning, "Really? Good grief, it's the last full of day of school, what sort of teacher snitches out a kid on the next to last day of school for not standing in line quietly..."

    To my complete surprise when I finally reached her, she said "Yeah (only she still sounds bummed...think the teacher in Charlie Brown, that's exactly her intonation) he's had a pretty good couple of days. Oh and I referred him for the TAG program. He's so bright and I've enjoyed having him so much...and I hear he's a good athlete too."

    It wasn't until I got off the phone that I really registered what she had said. I don't know what the athlete part was about, lol. I think maybe she heard it from him, haha, though he was exceptional this winter in basketball...

    Anyway, completely surreal. And into the fray we go! It's summer, this was the last day of school, woooo hooooooooooooo!
