Today is my daughter’s last day of another year of school. Not just another year, but her last year of middle school- next year she will be a high schooler! Although I usually don’t have her on Wednesdays, I thought that we would do something a little special- maybe take her out to dinner at her favorite restaurant, or at least go get some ice cream. But yesterday I found out that she flunked one of her classes. I’m not sure if it was Math or Science- hell, it might even be both of them. I’m very disappointed in her. She has the ability to get A’s & B’s in all of her classes, and she had plenty of help available if she needed it. But she did her normal thing of only focusing on what she wants to do right now, without considering the consequences.
I certainly don’t want to reward her lack of effort, and right now I don’t even want to talk with her. What a great way to celebrate the end of the school year :/11 months ago
