Tomorrow promises to be like a day without sunshine. Princess Grace will be on a field trip (be astonished--she is going to a college library to begin her Senior research project. She is a Senior!!) and I have unlocked the key to silenceing the songbird.
Today her total lack of effort showed as she presented her persuasive speech. The 55 she earned was partially a gift on my part. No sources cited, no main points, blah blah. I silenced her moanings about this grade and asked that she write down any of her complaints alongside her grading rubric with what she feels she earned. She snorted something I am pretty sure was profanity and went to sleep without a single yodel.
She went to sleep!!!
Should I feel guilty? Some days, I just let 'em go.
