Forging on

So the other night Charlie Brown and I are going through the kids' Monday folders.

These lovely creators of clutter do have information about school events from time to time, but mostly they include EVERY worksheet done in the past week. With one kid in kindy and another in 2nd grade, it gets to be a bit MUCH, but like any involved parent, we dutifully go through each and every paper.

I came to LMNOB's first reading log - they are to read nightly for 20 minutes and then summarize with a few sentences, have mom/dad sign off at the end of the week and turn in on Friday. Which she did. Sort of.

We reviewed....looking good - yeah, LMNOB DOES need to work on spacing....

Flip the page over and there's my note about how she doubled up on Monday, but didn't read on Wednesday due to church. Down below I see a curious thing....not my signature, but LMNOB's rendition of such.

Upon asking her about it, she said, "Weeeeeeeeeeelllll, YOU forgot to sign it and I HAD to turn it in with a signature!" starts so young...

  1. Hahahahaha! (sniff). I hope her teacher didn't come down on her too hard about it.

  2. LOLOLOL!!! What did the teacher day? That is hilarious ;)

  3. @ Liz and Heather - As far as I know the teacher didn't say anything, much less notice it. She is clueless, y'all. I won't have any hair left after the school year.

    @ DM - I don't think it was sneaky so much as it was fear of being told she wouldn't get credit for her work b/c of my lack of signature....but I had to laugh at how "disguised" my siggie was compared to her normal writing, lol.

  4. That is totally hilarious...reminds me of the times I used to write myself notes to stay indoors at lunch hour...signed by my 1st grade. Needless to say, I always had to go out to play :)

  5. LOLOL - It does start early! I kind of want to tell you how impressed I am but I am sure you wouldn't think that's too funny! LOL :) sorry!

    I had my GRANDMA's signature mastered before my usually Grandma signed everything (boy grandma was young, LOL)
