Anyone with kids knows that this is how they call you... Over and over and over... lol
Hubby took Fuzzy to work on his shotgun badge for Boy Scouts today. There is a specific Scout approved facility about an hour away that they go to and Fuzzy will shoot clay traps. Pumpkin went to watch. Hubby and I feel she is still too young.
However, before Hubby left, he whipped up my favorite chocolate chip banana bread that he makes. It is in the oven now still baking. Mmmmmm.....
About kids... time's have really changed, and I have an example of that.
Back in the 1970's, when I was in grammar school, certain things were patently 'uncool'.
Wearing glasses = uncool in 1970's.
Now in the 2000's, wearing glasses is hip! There are even kids who cry when they find out they don't need them!!! No more teasing 'four eyes' taunts, now they check out what color your frames this time! Amazing.
Having braces = uncool in 1970's.
Again, now having braces is very cool and hip! Kids can't wait to see what 'cool' colors you get each month! No teasing 'brace face' jokes!
Here is the Ultimate kicker to me.
Do you remember the Audio Visual Club at your school? Back in the 1970's they were referred to as the 'Geek Squad' or other unseemly names. They were all boys and to be a part of it was the absolute death of any chance at being popular.
Not anymore! Fuzzy came home earlier this week with an application for the School Technical Team!
This'elite' group of 7th and 8th graders will deliver tv's, dvd players, projectors, computers, etc, to teachers, as requested during homeroom, and return them at the end of the day, and will coordinate with the Computer Lab teacher.
Fuzzy had to fill out the form, we had to sign as parents, and he had to write an essay as to why he would be an asset to the team! Since they get so many applications, it will be about a week before the special 'chosen' will find out!
I looked at Hubby and he looked at me, and we started to laugh! I said, first glasses and braces... and now EVEN the A/V Club has gone all cool on us!!! Times have changed!
Our kids think that we had very bizarre childhoods surrounded by very mean children.
You know what... things are definitely better in some ways for our kids! Sure, a lot of things are not, like I never had to practice lockdown drills in case of a gun toting maniac, but as for the day to day life of a kid in school, maybe things are a lot better!
Anyhow, just wanted to share our recent observations with you all!
