J got a merit certificate for a maths assignment today - pretty damn exciting when your kid's in Year 1 but incredibly exciting when he's in Year 12, and hasn't gotten one since Year 7. The change to the new school seems to have made all the difference to J's confidence and self-esteem. I'm one happy Mum at the moment.
Going to a wedding on the weekend, my own self-esteem is always low at public outings. Oh well I guess I'll get through it, hide in a corner somewhere and hope for the best.
Off to cook a chook.
