Back to School!
OK~ The school bells are now ringing all over the United States. Do you know what your son or daughter's teachers look like? By the attendance at our son's high school back to school night, this evening; I would say that most parents have no clue as to what their teachers look like! For example, one class has 30 students- 2 parents showed up! What a statistic!! On another note, a small study hall group has 14 students- I was the only parent in attendance. What is wrong with parents today? A simple, couple hours out of one week- once a year- to meet the teacher and folks can't even do that! I arrived just on time and thought to myself, "Oh my, I will have to walk a long way!" Guess what? Pretty much front row parking and of course my handicapped parking permit was in another vehicle. I headed on in. We parents had 5 minutes between classes, just like our kids and I was late! I physically could not walk fast enough to get from Point A to Point B in 5 minutes. My leg has been quite swollen lately and my right foot has been pretty stiff, so it made for an interesting walk. I sure hope my son is thankful for the quickness and healthy legs that he has! After all, it's all in a Mom's Day, Right?
