Last night was open house at my daughter’s high school. Imagine my surprise when we arrived at her 7th period English class and when asked who our child was the teacher said, “Oh you’re the author.” I blushed and admitted I was.
Luckily my daughter is only aware of my writing credits such as Chicken Soup for the Soul and various magazines.
Mr. English teacher asked if I’d be willing to come in to the class later this year and talk to the kids. This man is VERY unaware of my public speaking phobia. LoL He also commented that he told my daughter that he’d have me come to a different class than hers so not to embarrass her. My precious child said, “I want her to come to my class. I love my mom.”
He laughed telling us and said, “Are you sure she’s a teenager?”
This is my daughter though. She tells it like it is and she doesn’t embarrass easy. She’s proud of me and her love for me – unlike her older sister at this age. I’m so happy at 14 she’s still a warm loving teenager.
Today I have to finish last minute stuff so I can return to my day job on Monday. Waaaahhhhhhh! Sorry, it’s just not something I’m looking forward to, though my company has been in the news way too often over the last three months so having a job is a blessing right now.
Not sure what I’ll be doing this weekend, but I hope everyone has a great one!
