We experienced a parenthood first a couple weeks ago. Parent teacher conference.
I was cleaning up dinner and Parker asked if I was going to wear that. Sheesh! I had a decent shirt on. (But the reality is I was planning on changing.) I said I was thinking about changing and asked him what he thought I should wear. His answer, "a cute dress."
Really? How about a sweater? (I went and changed.)
Parker's response...That's perfect. You look cute mom. Can I give you a hug?
The conference went well. Parker is a smarty pants, as I expected. His teacher is considering sending him to a first grade class for part of the day. The problem is he's painfully shy. (I know, right?) He is bonkers at home. How in the world can a kid who likes attention as much as he does be so shy?
