Graduation?/Uroczystosc Wreczenia Swiadectw?


May 16, 2009


I've been laughing inside all day because I went to Gracie's and Nephi's graduation from preschool today.  Yes, it was really cute to see my kids smiling and waving at me.  And, yes, I think my kids are the cutest and smartest and sweetest in the world.  But they just play in preschool.  So I just couldn't help hearing in my head the heated exchange between Bob (Mr. Incredible) and Helen (Elastigirl) from The Incredibles movie:


Helen: I can't believe you don't want to go to your own son's graduation.
Bob: It's not a graduation. He is moving from the 4th grade to the 5th grade.
Helen: It's a ceremony!
Bob: It's psychotic! They keep creating new ways to celebrate mediocrity, but if someone is genuinely exceptional...


Samuel also "graduated" from 4th to 5th grade and Isaiah from 3rd to 4th grade.  Both got awards for having all A's and all A's in conduct.  Samuel also won a county wide contest for writing an original myth, and outscored everyone on the standardized test CRCT.   Now, if Josh could just get Gracie potty trained, all my children could be genuinely exceptional…


My friend Cathy recently posted an article showing a Canadian study that children of women who experience nausea during pregnancy have higher IQs.  I don't know if it's true, but I sure want to believe that all of my suffering wasn't for nothing! 




Uroczystosc Wreczenia Swiadectw?

16 Maj 2009


Dziasiaj caly dzien sie smialam bo poszlam na Uroczystosci Wreczenia Swiadectw dla Nefi i Grace z przedszkola.  Nie wiem za co te swiadectwa byly, bo oni tyko sie bawia w przedszkolu.  Ja uwazam ze moje dzieci sa najladniesze i najmadrzejsze i najlepsze. Przez te cala uroczystoc myslalam o filmie INIEMAMOCNI w ktorym Elastyna i Pan Iniemamocny sie klocili o to ze Pan Iniemamocny nie chcial isc na uroczystosc swiadectw jak jego syn konczyl 4 klase i szedl do 5tej.  On mowil ze to celebracja miernosci, a pani Elastyna mowila ze to wazna uroczystosc dla syna.  Obydwoje mieli racje; ja sie smialam bo ja sama bylam na takiej uroczystosci... 


Samuel tez skonczyl 4ta klase idzie do 5tej.  A Isaiah skonczyl 3cia i idzie do 4tej.  Obydwoje mieli najlepsze stopnie za nauke i najlepsze stopnie za zachowanie.  Samuel tez wygral konkurs pisania orginalniej mitologi i mial najwyzsze oceny z calej swojej klasy na koncowym egzaminie.  Jesli tylko Grace by sie nauczyla chodzic do ubikacji to wszytkie moje dzieci bylyby naprawde wyjatkowe.


Moja kolerzanka Cathy niedawno wyslala artykul w ktorym bylo zbadane w Kanadzie ze kobiety ktorym chce sie wymiotoac podczas ciazy maja madrzejsze dzieci.  Nie wiem czy to prawa, ale chce w to wierzyc ze moje wymioty nie byly na nic!

If the nausea study is true, Liam and Amelia must be GENIUSES. I spent weeks in the hospital while I was pregnant with both because I couldn't even keep water down.

I love all the little Graduation stuff. Even if they are just moving up. It's still fun to do. And just think of all the fun scrapbooking pages I get to do.
I'm so sad I missed out on Kayden's awards this year. Darn Surgery!
I would love to know more about this study of morning sickness. HUMMM

Oh that must explain why my children are brilliant! It was all worth it then.

No kidding! I was so sick with all of my kids! Whooo Hoooo! Automatic genius babies! NICE!

Your kids are sweet and brilliant! It's those Polish genes, I'll bet. In fact I know it is since you're smart enough not to be the one to potty train!

I can't believe how old gracie looks in all the pictures! They all grow up to quickly!

I hope that is true - - that nausea during pregnancy ups the IQ of the child! That would be great! Anyway, your kids are super cute and smart!
