Dude, where’s my brain?!!

Fantastic Student-Teacher-Parent conferences today.. words can’t express how proud I am of these boys 😍

I know, I know, every parent thinks the fruit of their loins is the best thing since home-baked sliced loaf, but these boys have dropped into kiwi life like they were trained in it.

Joe has a heart of gold, is pounding through spelling and maths, and we finally persuaded him to join the Touch Rugby team 😎

Tom is kind and thoughtful, he’s looking after the foreign exchange students as if they were his own 😍 although his head-in-the-cloud nature does require some focus.. (πŸ˜† I feel the teacher’s pain here)

And Sid? What can I say?

He’s a nerd. Total nerd. Chip off the old block 🀣 (and no, I’m not talking about Mark πŸ˜‹)

He’s doing really well in reading, writing and maths, is ahead of his age group in some, and aiming perfectly on target for the end of Year 1 😍⭐

Fred’s conference is next week, so maybe I should reserve my celebrations til then?! 🀣  Or maybe not, I need to celebrate these wins while I can 😁

However… myself? I’m a little worried. I think I’m slightly losing my mind 😢

While listening to my little number 3 angel’s teacher raving about what new apps are available to help with spelling (focus-lacking number-3-child has great phonics but not always in the right places), the sun went down, and we came out to find four kids had been reduced to two.

I don’t think there is any worse feeling than those stomach-turning moments, as you look for them, and the school lights are being turned off 😨

Those few minutes felt like bloody hours πŸ˜₯ but the little s#@$s turned up.. exactly where we left them as it happens πŸ™ˆ – playing with the Lego πŸ˜…πŸ€£

So we made our way back to the car, super relieved to be honest, and planning an evening of wine celebration 😁

However, car keys in hand, I realised my bag wasn’t on my shoulder, and the familiar stomach drop set in. Which classroom had I left it in?! Aiiiii, the lights are being turned off, teachers are leaving, and my wallet (and most importantly the Thai take-away restaurant menu) is tucked away in my handbag, somewhere in that school. Joe and I set off running, and enlisted the help of at least 4 teachers,Β  as well as the school principal, to start a huge bag hunt, to enable my take-away habit for the night πŸ™ˆ

You’ll be pleased to hear, that after a few door unlockings and light switchings, we found the bag. In the front seat of my car.

πŸ˜†πŸ€£πŸ™ˆ

Oh, the shame. Someone needs to find my brain, and please return it to sender.

And bring me wine.

And take-away.
