10 Questions I Want to Ask Tonight at Parent/Teacher

  1. He's a good boy, isn't he?*
  2. Is he a good listener?
  3. Does he pay attention? (Like, at least as much as the other kids?)
  4. Is he keeping up with the work?**
  5. Is he being bullied by -----?***
  6. Does his drawing seem above average?
  7. Isn't he just the sweetest?****
  8. If you could change anything about him ... nah, that's weird.
  9. On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being best kid ever ...?
  10. As a parent, would you say I'm ... ugh, never mind. 
I suspect I'll actually ask questions 2, 3, 4 and 5. #1 or #7 is bound to come out, too.

* Technically this is a rhetorical question because OF COURSE HE IS!
** If he isn't, can I blame my husband's genes?
*** I aired my grievances about this in the fall conference, but I suspect I may bring it up again
**** She'd better say yes


I mean, look at this kid. He's magic ...
