I'm The Cool Mom With Fries
Today Carver's 3rd grade class had a field trip, and I volunteered to be one of the drivers and chaperons. Carver vacillates between still wanting me to hold his hand and wanting me to stay as far away from him as I can when he's with his friends. So he was almost making himself bi-polar over the angst of my coming along today. Happy to be with me, but not wanting me to be there to remind him to stay in line and be quiet, blah blah blah. I drove Carver, 2 boys, and 3 girls, and I was responsible for them as we toured a really beautiful historical mansion here in town. I am overjoyed to report that I lost NO ONE! On the way back to school, the girls broke out their High School Musical trivia book and gave me the multiple choice quiz. I passed! And in a burst of kindness, I drove through McD's and got each of them french fries to munch on.
So now I am, like, so totally cool to all of them.
