Every week Zachary’s teacher sends home a newsletter about what they’ve been working on, and what they’ll be doing the next week. On the back side of the letter she does a little “interview” with one of the kids. It’s called “Personality of the Week,” and it is adorable. It’s fun to see what the kids say about themselves and their families. I have been eagerly anticipating Zachary’s turn because, as many of you know, that kid has personality to spare and I was sure his contribution would be awesome.
Well. He was personality of the week on Friday and let me tell you, he didn’t disappoint.
Part of the interview includes the child’s favorite recipe. Zach and I made smoothies on Monday, and he was eagerly asking me how they were made. I even had the thought that he *might* be personality of the week soon, and how awesome was that timing, because I would look like an awesome mother if he chose to share a smoothie recipe!
Because, obviously, it’s all about me.
WELL, the universe registered that thought and laughed in my face. It turns out that last week was Zach’s turn as personality of the week, and a smoothie was NOT the recipe he chose to share. He also revealed a few things about himself that I hadn’t known before!
Note 1: The cat’s name is actually spelled Bizzie, which is short for Bizzle. As in “for shizzle my bizzle.” I’m incredibly glad that Zach doesn’t know that.
Note 2: Apparently we are watching too much “Wicked Tuna”
Note 3: DJ’s parents are going on a hunting trip to Alaska in September. Apparently Zach wants to go along, as well. But if you were to explain to him that you’d have to kill an actual animal, he would most likely burst into tears. So.
Note 4: Every time I “make” him a frozen burrito, he tells me I make the best burritos. I’ll take what I can get.
