A Proud Moment in Parenting

Got a call from the school Principal today. My daughter was involved in an "incident" involving a note and some foul language. And she lied about it to boot. So tomorrow night we will go to the victim's house and apologize to the family. Like they say, the first 40 years of parenting are always the hardest. She's a great kid who made a really, really stupid decision. Don't know if I should laugh or cry. I kind of feel like Ralphie's Mom after he said F**K to his Dad in Christmas story - get out the LifeBuoy soap!!
I'm sure I'll laugh about this someday . . . . unless she ends up on Jerry Springer.

Hiya, Happy.
I am glad your view of your daughter is still untainted. Snaps for Mom. Who in their right mind would want to be a kid again?!

You need to email me your address at (**). I've got caramels with your name on them.
Cheers, Darling.

Kids will be f*cking kids, won't they?

Thanks for filling me in on the phone. I like that part when she didn't know how to spell the curse words yet. It's hard to be the little sister as the big sisters are getting their potty mouths on. How did the meeting with the family go?
