My tombstone will read: "the most average person in the world." Since I represent the average, I find humor anything and everyone . . . including myself.

The Dreaded Science Project
The dreaded science project's due date is looming closer. My husband and I (well . . . really I'm the only one who monitors) have the belief that as long as our kids are making A's & B's, we don't micro-manage their homework. The instant a "C" pops up, we (well . . . really I'm the only one who steps in) start closely monitoring everything. This philosophy brings me back to the science project.
I told my seventh grader BEFORE Christmas break even started that she was required to work one hour on her science project. I know--mean mom. She needed to spend sixty minutes during her two week break to make our lives easier down the line. Guess what?!?!? She did only an hour . . . and that was because I nagged.
