A Head-Scratching Moment.

Had parent-teacher conferences today and it was great to touch base with the kids' teachers and make sure they are doing all right in spite of everything that has kept us from anything even resembling routine and normalcy at home. They are testing well, improving, and socializing well.

We did have an odd moment though, while reading their papers that had been hung in the main hallways. Mattie had a kind of "about me" poem which was insightful and well-written -described herself as "independent and fun loving."

And then she wrote, "I worry about my parents getting a divorce."

Insert that sound like a record spinning off the needle.

"WHAT?!" We both gasped.

So later on, at home, I told Mattie how much I enjoyed her paper but I needed to know why she would write that she was worried about a divorce. "Oh," she replied airily, "I couldn't think of anything else that I was worried about."

So there you go. Harp Elementary, we are O-K.

Oh my goodness! SO funny! I am glad that is her only worry. A non existent thing. Perfect!
