Josiah came running into the house after school today, simply trembling with excitement.
"Mommy, I want to show you something. Look!" he exclaimed, shoving a paper into my hands. "I got a 'certifi-cat'!" (My dear child attends an international school, so he's copying the Tanzanian, New Zealand, British, etc., accents he hears. It's too cute to correct him.)
A parent often wonders how their child is behaving when they are not around. Is he listening in school? Does he obey his teacher?
Well, apparently Josiah is doing just fine because today his teachers presented him with the "Good Behavior" award, earned by accumulating the most good behavior stickers throughout the term.
Good job, Josiah! Mom and Dad are so proud of you!
