3rd Grade EOG's Jitters
Okay, so my 9 year old (which i'll call Thing 1) has his first year of End Of Grade testing for the first time this year. They have been going over stuff that would most likely be on the EOG for a few weeks now. And let me tell you, Thing 1 is STRESSED OUT!!!! He is a nervous wreck, scared he won't pass it, scared that he will have to go to the restroom during the test (WHICH IS A BIG F-N DEAL APPARENTLY BECAUSE YOU DON'T GET A PRIZE AT THE END OF THE TEST IF YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE BATHROOM)....i'M JUST A little peeved about all the pressure that they put on a 9 year old....I know, I know there is nothing that I can do about it, but reassure him that he is going to do great, and don't worry about the bathroom thing, if you don't get a prize it's not a big deal. So each morning this week, i've been getting up early to cook a good breakfast for him and his sister (the only 2 that has EOG's this year)eggs, bacon, toast, orange juice. So that they can have a full stomach while taking the test....Only one more day of testing for these two..... The Man Child who is about to turn 17, starts his testing next week. So once again, i'll be up making a hearty good breakfast for everyone.....Lets keep our fingers crossed that they all do good on their testing...and that I survive through it!!
