The first week of school, they sent home a paper doll for my ONE YEAR OLD to decorate like herself. And she’s uhm, one. So I took the liberty of creating this disgrace to send in while Elliot happily slumbered in her crib one night.

This is NOT the start of a lifetime of me doing her homework for her. I was pretty embarrassed to turn this in but the teachers were impressed and thought Elliot had actually done it herself. There you have it, my art work resembles that of a one year old.

    no, that looks like two year old art work, at least.

    I’m a little concerned about the teachers and their observational abilities.

    They did that with Sprite last year and I had her slap a bunch of stickers on it and call it even. They even graded it and it’s still on my fridge!

    Elliot can spell her name too? At one? I’m slacking in the parental department.

    So do you do parties?

    You might be able to make a little spending money.

    Looks like you’ve found yourself a little income-at-home option πŸ˜‰ I was just feeling like a loser mom since mine couldn’t give three craps about A&C; after a few years of trying, they will only occasionally do anything not directed by someone else. Sheesh. Let’s hope they got the music or sports genes LOL

    Yeah, I’d be a little worried too about your teachers Casey. In Sunday school they had the two year old tracing their hands and cutting them out to make a collage. Yeah right. Tracing and cutting something as curvy as a handprint. Not particularly age appropriate. Crumpling up the paper and throwing it? Totally! -Monica

    Hey, that is pretty good–for a one year old. πŸ™‚ (snicker) sorry, I couldn’t resist.

    Okay, so here is my rule for all projects sent home (and I would tell the teachers this every year): If you send it home, it is fair game. WE will work on it together in MY time frame. I do not have time to wait for Junior to do the project on his own or with 3 other kids that I have to schedule my life around. If you want the kids to do it themselves, DO IT AT SCHOOL.

    I think they got that message.

    Oh just wait until Christmas and mother’s day when Elliot “makes” you presents. Those always crack me up. The teachers hand you these creations that your kid clearly isn’t capable of doing and expect you to just gush.

    Come to think of it, I might’ve been the only parent in my daughter’s class who didn’t gush. And then hurried home to throw it in the trash. My poor kids. I’ve probably already ruined their creative self-esteem…

    I’m telling you, just wait till you have to do science projects, ugh. You’ll be wishing you could glue a cheerleader outfit on a paperdoll. You are quite talented btw.

    I’m sorry but did you say they gave a ONE year old homework?

    Well, I think it’s GREAT! Really, an awesome paper doll! Then again, last week, after realizing that Sissy left her math binder at home, and realizing that she hadn’t finished her worksheet (because she’d stayed up until 10:30 writing and typing up her Humanities presentation) I FINISHED HER WORKSHEET AND THEN DROVE TO THE MIDDLE SCHOOL AND DROPPED IT OFF FOR HER. Clearly, I deserve an F.

    i … ahem … i mean, stella had to put together a paper with family pictures on it for school.
    do you know how hard that was for me?
    i had to choose pictures and have them printed into collages and edit each individual picture … because you know, i couldn’t just turn in any old picture.
    HOURS. HOURS. seriously. i suck.

    Well I am going to say I have been guilty of rushing through homework for my kids sometimes – like Princess’s science project and Little Kong’s math – sometimes its a fine line between letting them do it themselves and fight an bicker and moan and scream and gouge your eyes out insanity or let them rest and play on the Wii so you can get 2 minutes of peace…don’t judge me…I’m exhausted okay?

    I hate to tell you, it is the start of you doing a lifetime of homework for her. Trust me, I know of which I speak.

    My work doesn’t even register as elementary school level so you are ahead of me!

    Uh…those teachers have some pretty high expectations.

    what?? They expected a one-year old to do anything beyond point to the red ball???
    Absurd!
    However, you did an outstanding job on your age-level one homework!! It is super-cute.
