Elena came home with a second place ribbon for the kindergarten geography bee today (Reason #44 that I'm not cut out to be a teacher: with only 6 days of school left I'd be giving the kids candy and dot-to-dots, not geography questions). In a way only her daddy could understand, she was bummed about taking second instead of first. And what kept her from being the champion? "I got Colorado mixed up with Wyoming, Mama" As any decent parent would do, I told her she was a big loser and she obviously needs to repeat kindergarten . . . just kidding.
