When a voice awoke me at 4am Monday morning, "mooooom my stomach hurts, and my head hurts" I went immediately into the mom process mode...
Is this a vomit situation?
Is there a fever?
Please don't give this to your sister.
Please don't give this to ME.
How early is too early to text my boss?
AINT NOBODY GOT TIME FO THIS
And, so on, and so on, with the mom thoughts.
Once I came to my senses and realized this would require a day at home, I remembered that Pierce was supposed to receive a certificate for a math contest and would have to miss it. SAD FACE.
But isn't that life with kids? Totally unpredictable. I sent teachers messages and asked that they send it home with his sister.
So we had our own little awards ceremony at home, I took pictures and I went on about how proud I am. Because I am.
This was an online math contest that was for the entire county, and out of 836 players, Pierce came in FIRST.
And Hope? She came in FIFTH! Sad face again, because I missed her getting it!
COLOR ME PROUD.
They both work so hard at school, and their work pays off.
And FYI: 4 more days....
