A new school year is approaching. My former colleagues are back in their classrooms. I’d probably miss being there with them if I weren’t making such a significant impact on local teens by simply taking my sometimes-unruly brood into public. I mean, I’ve been practically working overtime for the local abstinence groups, and I should probably be getting an hourly wage from the makers of all things birth control.
While I’m handling public outbursts and behaviors that make me think my children are plotting against me, some parents might shrink in embarrassment. Not me. I’m thinking of it as a public service.
It seems that my kindness has gone unnoticed, though. A little “thank you” for the excruciating work I’m doing here would be really nice.
Perhaps something like this…
You are so welcome.
