Parker Pants

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?

He's a funny kid! I can't believe he's so shy. I wish we lived by each other, I'd love to see our boys play together.

I love those kind of comments from the kids! Amanda tells me, "You look beautiful mama." and "You are such a cool mom.". At least, those are the nice things she says regularly.

Parker is so funny! Glad that the parent teacher conference went well. William's was the end of last month... turns out that he's a smarty pants too--and maybe just a little too social during carpet time.

I have noticed that- that he is very active and happy, yet shy at the same time. Definitely a smart, interesting, fun kid! :)

I sure wish I knew your kids Katie. They all seem so fun. Glad you were presentable enough to see the teacher in your changed clothes. :)

Oh Katie,
I get such a kick out of hearing what your kids say and do.
They are so full of life!!!

So Parker is already concerned about what you wear, huh? I think you were in HS before you started telling me what to wear. By the time you left home, I didn't know how to go shopping or pick out an outfit without your approval.
