Not My Kid

The other afternoon, Goose tells me “mom, I get three trips to the treasure box this week because…”.  Honestly, I wasn’t listening because I hate the treasure box.  Just more crap for me to capture and throw away without him noticing.  And he notices when his stuff goes missing.

Later I went over his work and he pointed out a sheet of paper and commented this is the one I was talking about earlier.  When I wasn’t listening.  I asked for the story again.  Turns out the teacher forgot to give him a worksheet when he left early the day before so she had him complete the work that morning.  She gave him a 100.  Then he noticed that he missed one, moving his grade to 83.

So he got a trip to the treasure box for honestly.

Seriously, who the hell is this kid.  I’d like to say I’m proud, but really, he should know better.

  1. From Jenn:

    I’m surprised that she moved his grade. 100 > treasure box toy, right?

    • From Nicole:

      Nope, we have a crappy little note pad and an 83. Seriously, I wanted to kill him!

  2. From Jill:

    Random question…..does Goose read the Hank the Cowdog books?? My mom highly recommends this series to 3rd and 4th graders to read. I loved these when I was little, as well. We were talking about the author the other day – he did a video chat with my mom’s class that was really neat, and I thought about you and Goose!
