Perfect Moment Monday Part II: the phone call

Lori over at Weebles Wobblog says that “Perfect Moment Monday is more about noticing a perfect moment than about creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.”

I was sitting here getting a few things done while Joey was doing his homework. The phone rang and I recognized the number as the school office line. Why are they calling? What could they need? I picked it up and this is what I heard…

Hi Mrs. Cruz. This is S. Gray, Joey’s teacher. I was just calling because I wanted to brag on Joey. We were talking about rocks and minerals today and he had so much to contribute and so much outside knowledge. I was really impressed. I just wanted to share that with you. I hope Joey is having a great start to the school year. I really enjoy having him in my class.

What a wonderful surprise. It’s always nice to have someone compliment you on your kiddo but it’s even nicer that his teacher took a moment out of her very busy day to make sure we knew about it too. It really makes you feel good like you are doing something right with your kids.

Go check out the other perfect moments at this week’s Perfect Moment Monday on Weebles Wobblog.

    Isn’t that like the best ever – to have someone like your kid as much as you do?
