Hope this post find you all in your happy place!!! I keep trying to head off to mine but the kids keep finding me...blah!!! I am happy to report that Brandon is actually bringing homework home now!! A step in the right direction for sure! You know what he told me????? I sat with him and went over his report card with him the other night after I had calmed down enough to keep from choking him.....in one of his classes not only was he skipping homework, he was skipping school work too. And classwork and participation were worth like 80 percent of this class grade.
He says, "Mom......I didn't know that they graded you on in class stuff"
Are you serious????????
Obviously I had a hard time believing this little tale of his........until today when we found a letter in the mailbox that he was trying to send off to some record company.
You really need to sit for this one.......and I promise, If I'm lyin I'm dyin!!!!
The mailman left the letter behind because of lack of postage. Brandon has it in his head that he is gonna be the next Scotty Too Hotty from American Idol........except he can't sing....at all!!! I know he is just 11 but the talent is just not there. I encourage my kids to try ANYTHING and not let other peoples opinions get in the way. My boys have done sports, scouts, ROTC, you name it......with varying degrees of success and I am always their biggest cheerleader.....but cmon.......we know if there is no chance in hell......not being mean.....just saying :)
So Brandon writes a letter to this music company begging them for a record deal....no demo or anything......and he really believes that based on a letter they are gonna hook him up........he didn't know the address so he made one up (?????????) and he put a stamp on it.......ahem....one of my stamps for crafting that says "cutest pumpkin in the patch" and said "It's a stamp!!!"
OMG!!! I feel like Bill Engvall.......here's your sign!!!!!
He's 11..........I think I am in for a longgggggggggggg road.....sigh!!!!
And I swear I did not smoke, drink or dope while carrying him.......altho right now those are all sounding REAL good!!! lol
I can't make this stuff up y'all.....
Ready to see a couple of projects?
