I make it a point to attend every single one of Najwa’s school events, whether it’s a field trip, a class presentation or even an awards ceremony knowing she might not be getting an award this time. But, I dislike parent-teacher conferences for some reason and I avoid the events where the kids go from station to station doing different activities and compeitions. It’s basically a bunch of kids running around making a bunch of noise doing all kinds of activities while we parents just kind of, well, do nothing.
Eh. This time wasn’t so bad, except during the glow dance (you know, give the kids glow sticks, turn up the music then turn out the lights) and some kid promptly ran into another, accidentally, knocking him over and busting his head open. He survived.
