~~~~~~ Update: here’s my homework post… ~~~~~~
You can find today’s post on The Bad Mommy Blog a little later (I’m still working on it), since what I was going to post here today turned into very belated Bad Mommy Homework for LAAAST week whilst I wrote it… I didn’t ask the other mommies for an extension though so I hope I don’t get detention. Our instructions were as follows:
This week’s homework takes the form of a letter. You will write this letter to your kid, with the intention that he will receive it on an important milestone in their life. This milestone can be anything – an age, an event or any time in the future you think is appropriate.
As much as I longed to do it, I really battled with it- considering Damien turns 17 in less than 3 weeks, I feel like I am running out of milestones. First steps, words, day-at-school, detention, girlfriend, fight, best-friend, exams, date, party. . . all gone already!
First time drinking? BTDT. . .
First time smoking? BTDT. . .
First time sex? Prolly BTDT. . . but I’m not thinking about it. . .
I s’pose there’s still things like getting his driver’s license, his first car, his first real job, his wedding day and his own children’s birth. . . but I’ll get to those when I have some time to sit down and mull them over appropriately.
And then this morning started out particularly engagingly, and I had a brainwave. I was actually writing the post in my head as I drove when I realized it fitted last week’s homework! It doesn’t fit entirely as it’s not a milestone, but I’m going to work around that.
BTW. . . have you voted for the Bad Mommy Blog in the SABlogAwards yet?
