I'm Julie, otherwise known as Mamita. I'm married to the greatest man on earth. His name is Steve, or Daddy. We have 4 kids, three homegrown and one heartgrown from the beautiful country of Guatemala. This blog is about our family, our faith, adoption, therapeutic parenting, and anything else I feel the need to talk about. It is both a family record and free therapy for my crazy life. Come along for the ride if you want.
My kid is able to get straight A's simply by her brain's existence.
No need to show up for class.
No need to take quizzes.
Tests? Dispense with the formalities.
She is so brilliant, she can achieve a 4.0 with no effort.
What makes me so sure?
We received a report card from the local middle school yesterday. It was in Sugar's name. It had two classes listed. And the grades? Good solid A's.
Here's the thing...
Sugar doesn't attend the local middle school. She never has.
Last year, at the appropriate time, we sent in the form that said she would NOT BE ATTENDING the middle school. In the early summer, we received her course schedule. Again, I called and told them that Sugar would not be attending. When we got the bus schedule for her in August, I beat my head against the wall. So now, a report card, with A's. I guess her reputation as an excellent student preceded her.
Steve called today and they sounded puzzled, and apologized for the mix-up, promised to straighten it out . We'll see how she does next semester. ;-)
