This is My "Real" Blog: I'm so glad I was a mean mom. . . .

Angie's Blog!

I'm so glad I was a mean mom. . . .

. . .and Edison is glad, too.

Today, my little genius helped his team of middle schoolers win the Scholar's Bowl.

A few weeks ago, Edison complained loudly that he didn't want to be part of Scholar's Bowl. In fact, he talked to the coach about quitting. She tried to talk him out of it.

We told him "no."

And today, more than anything, I enjoyed asking him whether or not he was glad he stayed in.

His reply: "I can't wait until next year."

Sometimes, as a mom, I rock.

YAY, EDISON!!! Good for you - you should be horribly proud of yourself. And you did great, too, Angie.
BTW - the LO of Caroline in the wedding is PRECIOUS!!
