Luke made it into the geography bee at school this week by passing a written test.
The bee was today, and he made it to the 7th round. Each kid got 2 misses. Luke missed in the 6th and 7th rounds.
But check out this awesomeness: I asked last week if I was allowed to come watch. Him: “I don’t think parents do that.”
So today, I was waiting in parking lot by around 4:20, in case he was done early from the 4:30 pick up time he’d given me. 4:30 came and went. His assistant principal called me at 4:40 to tell me he was still in, and that I could come to the commons to watch.
Where EVERYONE’S parents were watching.
There are moments, few and far between, but they exist, when I miss the time that actually winning the day involved things like:
I fed all 3 kids 3 meals plus 2 snacks today! (Mom of the year!)
They all got baths! (Go me!)
And everyone just went to bed without putting up a fight! (Let’s celebrate with wine!)
Luke 100% acted like he didn’t care that I wasn’t there, but I still feel bad. Now I know. (But seriously. Geography bee participant? Is this kid even mine? Are there more geography bees in my future?)
