Tomorrow is the kids' first day. Huzzah! I survived another summer with them!
Said to Sissy at supper, "you're not going to do like you did last year in the first week of school are you?"
"you know. You wrote down all the homework in pencil when the teacher was looking and then erased it when wrote 'none' when she looked away so I thought you didn't have any homework?"
"I don't remember that."
"you don't remember being sneaky so you didn't have to do your homework?"
I was thinking: in a pig's eye! Of course she remembers!!!!
"OK. For the record, should you choose to do that this week, there will be serious consequences."
"No computer for a month, extra chores and revoking of all extracurricular privileges."
"wow. that's alot." Said deadpan to the open refrigerator door.
"Yeah. It is. On purpose. I don't like the sneaking about homework. OK?"
Really? Does she honestly NOT remember? I mean, I guess it's possible she doesn't remember being so dubious and underhanded in her efforts to avoid homework. It's possible the med cocktail she's on has dulled her memory. It's possible the psychoses she suffered from this time last year was so severe it blocked her ability to remember the events. But can I be honest? That just burns my britches because by golly, I remember!!!!! And it really caught the teacher and I off guard that a fourth grader would be so underhanded!!! She was SO deliberately sneaky it made me want to vomit! And she has had the privilege of forgetting the whole thing.
Maybe RAD moms should be blessed with faulty memory wires due to exposure to RADling psychoses - it certainly would make for less harrowing blog material!
I actually have some cool thoughts rumbling in my bumbling brain. You can read all about my prefrontal cortex machinations tomorrow. Nighty night! Don't let the back to school bedbugs bite your RADishes!
Sissy's new haircut. Super cute and no fuss!
