And the ones that Mother gives you don’t do anything at all.

As you know, we did the Parent/Teacher conference last week.
Harper’s report stated that she represents feelings and ideas in a variety of ways.
She shows confidence and takes initiative.
She responds to sensory input to function in the environment.

Yesterday, when I asked Harper what she learned in school, she handed this to me:


Apparently, “responds to sensory input to function in the environment” is fancy for “totally relates to Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.” ‘ ‘ ‘text/javascript’>

  1. I always gets, “Works independently, but at her own pace.” Which is shorthand for, “stubborn as a mule and try to hurry her along at your own risk.”

  2. I love this artwork!!! I wonder if it represents some moment in the class or just something that came to her…

  3. Well, but the asymmetry lends a certain sense of balance to the piece overall, don’t you think?

    Hey, who dropped this clove cigarette in my coffee?

  4. I foresee a successful future in horror remakes of the Muppet Show. Rip their eyes off! More blood! More blood!

  5. One time, I made a craft in school that was a card for my mother to tell her I loved her and thought she was the best. Unfortunately, my teacher was too busy to spellcheck it.

    I ended up giving my mother a lovely card that said, “Mom, you are the beast!”

  6. Once when I was a literacy tutor, I got a thank you note that said,
    “Dear Miss Alex,
    Thak you for hleping me with my spling.”
