Big Week

This past week was the first week after Fall Break/Thanksgiving and boy did it hurt. It hurt to go to bed early, but even more so waking up early. It’s not that I’m not a morning person per se – I just don’t like being told to do something and sure don’t want to start my day off that way – “wake up.” Besides the early hours, it was hard not being around my mommy and daddy. During break I got to spend every day and all day with them. I even got to see grannie and nanny.

The week did get better as the week went on. We get stars if we’re good and do what we’re suppose to do at school and once we get the whole sheet of stars we can bring something for show-and-tell. I know what people who know me are probably saying – talking in front of the class wouldn’t motivate me to be good – but you would be surprised because that’s what I kept talking about. At least until the night before show-and-tell when I got super nervous.

So my first priority for show-and-tell was to determine what I was going to bring. I could bring my super cool Hulk Hands, or one of my Batman cars, or an Angry Bird plush toy, or a remote control car….the list goes on. Nope, I decided that I would bring the one thing I thought was the coolest thing I own…..the one constant in my life (for dramatic effect)….the one thing that always makes me smile….Mama Lion. Yep, I brought her! I had to give her a bath first and figure out what I was going to say, but she was going to school with me to be shown and told about and every kid in that class was going to listen.

When the time came the next morning for me to go to school, I was super nervous so I brought the shield mommy and daddy bought for me to take away some of my nervousness – and it worked because I got up in front of the whole class and said loudly and clearly, “This is my lion. I have had her for 6 years. My mommy and daddy gave her to me and I sleep with her every night.”  Yep, while I could have brought a much more macho item so show-and-tell, I went the sensitive route – the road less traveled by young boys like myself – I’m just that secure.

To top off the week, we had Friday Live again. And this time, I DANCED!! Yep, pretty big week for me.
