This afternoon I played "cool mom" instead of "cruel mom". Did a presentation in each of the girls classes this afternoon. About Africa. Now THERE'S a fun way to spend the afternoon. I made sure I inserted enough bathroom humour to keep them giggling (threw in a picture or two of a "squatty potty"), plenty of cool animals for the oohs and aahs, lots of things for them to touch, some jewellery for the girls to try on - you name it.
Nikki and Julie were positively glowing by the end of the afternoon. Gotta love it when everyone in class thinks your mom is cool! Guess this kinda makes up for yesterday's less-than-stellar moments.
