Each week, Nathan's teacher sends home what is called the "Friday Folder". Inside are the papers he has completed that week, various and sundry announcements, as well as a cute little publication called the "Classroom Times". This little gem of journalistic wonder is the teacher's way of letting parents know what has been going on and what is up-and-coming in their 2nd grade world.
Now, let me also take a moment to mention that Nathan's teacher is fairly young, probably about 3 years into teaching. She has no children of her own. She is super-organized, sets strict limits, and is a major control freak. She isn't exactly what one would call nurturing...she likes the class to run her way or no way.
That said, tonight I took a few moments to peruse said folder, usually a rather mundane task. Ah, the "Classroom Times", nicely printed on ultra-pink paper. There are four brief articles, the 3rd of which catches my eye.
And I quote:
"Our Mother's Day Tea will be held May 6 at 1:00...Everyone has worked hard and they are excited to show all of you mothers just how special you are."
Beep, beep, beep...
(Those are back-up signals for those of you who are sound challenged.)
To show all of you mothers. Did ya catch that?
You know I can think of a lot of different ways to say the same thing...
"to show their mothers..."
"Hey! Come ta thuh Tea! Its fuh all of you Mothuhs!"
She really likes us *grin*!
