Well, for any of y'all who have been around ASM for a while, you know that sometimes my son can be a little bit of a pistol.
He is constantly getting into things and has been known to get in trouble at school a time or two...
or a hundred.
As a matter of fact, in all of the weeks he was in school last semester, he only went TWO whole weeks without getting into some sort of trouble....
And both of those weeks were "short weeks" too.
We have tried everything to get him to behave...
Bribes, spankings (yes, I DO spank my child), threats, time-outs, keeping him from playing with his friends, taking television and toys away, crying....
NOTHING we did helped.
Don't get me wrong, Jameson is a FANTASTIC kid.
He's funny, brilliant, happy, energetic, loving....
He just can't be still and can't keep his mouth shut!
Hmmmmm, I wonder where he gets THAT from?
Well, something VERY strange has been going on since Jameson started back to school in January.....
He's not been in trouble ONE SINGLE TIME...
His teachers have been raving about his fantastic behavior.
His guidance counselor even stopped me in car rider line and asked me what we did to turn his behavior around.
I told her the truth....
I DON'T KNOW!
We've not done anything different.
Not one single thing.
Then today, something happened that we didn't thing would ever happen....
He was named Student of the Month!
MY SON, Student of the Month?
When I saw that, I literally started crying, as did my hubby.
Could it be that he just matured over Christmas vacation?
OR, my theory is that somebody swiped MY kid and replaced him with a well-behaved version of my kid.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers, anyone?
Oh, and he is SO getting a puppy now!
