Mother’s Day

On the Friday before Mother’s Day Everett participated in his first school performance, which was to sing The Muffin Man with his classmates for the Moms (and a couple Dads) who came to school that afternoon. It was very cute, and was followed by muffins and milk. After finishing we were surprised to observe that Everett cleared his place at the table, putting his plates and napkin in the trash without being asked. Our immediate reaction was: you are busted kid! He never does this at home, nor do we ask him to, but it is an illustrative example of rookie parents who have lower than necessary expectations. It is also an example of the steps necessary to maintain order for his teachers, who need to orchestrate the care of several children at once.
