Yes, I'm really a parent to two children

On Tuesday, we had our first ever parent/teacher conference for our kids. I had no idea that they even did such a thing with pre-school.

There really weren’t any surprises…they are both exceptionally smart for their age, Mooka is a natural leader and Baby Bear does not like to sit still.

It was what happened during the conference that is particularly concerning.

First, let me just throw out this disclaimer – I have the maturity level of a 10 year old boy, especially when it comes to farting or acting appropriate in public.

We sat down with one of the teachers and 2 minutes into the conversation, I noticed it - a rather long (at least one inch maybe even two) hair growing out of her chin.


I made the mistake of glancing at A. and his eyes were completely locked in on it.


Now, I’ve been known to erupt into full on hysterics when something strikes my fancy and I was so freaked out that I was going to lose it. At one point, a tear actually slid down my cheek.

I tried really hard to maintain eye contact and did not dare glance A.’s way.
The entire time, I just kept hearing Austin Powers in the back of my mind.

I'm trying really hard to grow out of this phase.

Oh my gosh! You are hilarious! That made me laugh out loud - I am totally with you! I have had the 'try not to laugh' tears before too!

I can picture the look on your face. I'm sure the look on mine would have looked like one of those cutesy animal prints with the huge bugged out eyes.
