161: Parent Projects

29 Oct

I hate parent projects. I hate them. I do think there is something to be said for a project together. Last year, second grade started do these pumpkin book reports and they were so dang cute but they were so darn parent done and I hate that. It’s a lot of pressure. A lot.

It was our turn. Missy Mack picked Silvericious as her book. Like smart teachers, they have the kids do all the real work at school and then we decorate a pumpkin to look like the main character at home. We have been planning and discussing for awhile in hopes that our pumpkin making would be ‘Fun’ like Mrs. P, her teacher, said it would be.

We had a few tiffs and Mr. Mack wanted to throw the pumpkin away. Now I understand why all those damn pumpkins end up being parent made.

It turned out pretty cute!
