Putti THANK YOU FOR THE EDISON STORY
I was extremely disappointed today at an outcome from my 7 year old's school. I was trying to be a Tiger Mom and it didnt work out I guess if I should candidly admit
I was extremely disappointed, but when I read ur note it felt like all is not lost, almost as if it was meant for me, I know sounds creepy no? I did feel I was being reassured by someone... that there is still hope and I shouldnt be carried away by silly yardsticks schools use to measure kids. They dont meant s--- in the big picture of who they turn out to be later in life.
Kjolovesbabies: DONE, we will do a dinner at Eiffel.
Been there done it all... Tiger, leopard cheetah elephant mom Sab ban ke Dekh liya...ab chicken mom ban ke I am just letting them be. Piano, drums, swimming, soccer, art, singing Sab mein daala, they didn't stick with anything. Arghhh!
God - Its almost 11PM, I am ditching my high schooler to figure out the "Graphing Calculator" HW. If you are an honor student, you are supposed to know it all
. Poor kids and poor parents. I feel why I pushed and pushed her thru elementary and middle
. Between marching band, arangetram practice, drums lessons, piano pratice and crazy "desi town" school tension, there is no time for fun for her. Crazy schedule is going to keep her away on Gollu Saturday. My middle schooler cried the other day on how hard he has to work - even though his work is less compared to his sis, I never felt like I worked or did anything useful in 6th grade. I turned out ok, have a decent career and a happy family.
Taramira - I want to let it go but hesitant to let it go, thinking that I(they) might miss an opportunity and keep pushing.
Hopefully I will know better for my younger one. Sigh !
Thanks for the post Putti. We all desi moms have to chill about grades and placements. Be cool like Mrs. Edison. My elementary school parents in the "desi town" were preached that B is not a bad grade in the back to school night. Politely saying please dont harass our teachers for extra 1 or 2 marks.
This Sosyland is my stress buster. You all give strength and inspriration in different ways.
