What She Wore: Black, scoop-neck, short sleeve baby doll tee; distressed denim skirt; my ubiquitous black strappy sandals. One of the girls at school wanted my skirt–feels great when someone says that, and you know that it’s got a big elastic panel.
One of my colleagues has two school aged children. As a school assignment, one of them created a power point presentation about his family complete with pictures. My colleague brought it to school to show her students–she thought they’d like to know about her family, and would enjoy seeing pictures of her children.
The presentation raised the following questions:
You and you son have the same last name?
Does your other son have that last name?
And your husband?
How did that happen?
When I think about the kids I teach, less than 10% have parents who are married to each other. I’m not saying right or wrong, I’m just saying times have changed!
