Appreciation

Big Kid just came home with the following essay:

How My Parents Help Me Grow 
My parents take me many places and make sure I have fun. They teach me in alot of ways. They teach me math, reading, scince and much more. My dad teaches me how to borrow and carry. My mom lets me choose books so I can get smarter. I had alot of fun in the past 7 years and its because of them.

I need to teach him that a lot is two words, but isn't that so sweet? Things like this make it all worth the trouble.

He also chose an important person to draw a portrait of in art class and he picked Bill Cosby--a young Bill, from the Fat Albert days. I don't know why but I think that is so freaking cool.

How cute is he!

And fun Floria fact for you...
Bill used to film those 80's Jello commercials on my neighbor's front porch swing with another childhood friend. So our moms would take us over to watch the shoots and meet Bill (era of the Cosby show so he was a BIG deal). Who was never very nice to kids, oddly enough.

Because it IS freaking cool!

I think that is amazing and that you should teach a class called "how to be a good mommy that raises cool kids." I'd take it! And I'd probably be at least a little bit more well-behaved than most of the Nerd Herd.

Oh, and drawing Bill is awesome.
