Good Grades Escapades

Troubletron and I are proud to announce that both Teenbot and Littletron made the honor roll for the first term!

To celebrate our family's superior intellects, we took the kids out for a recognition lunch at our local Buca di Beppo for some family-style Italian dining in a carefree environment.

We are so proud.

We started off with some fried calamari. We told Littletron it was chicken . . . chicken shaped like little squids . . .
. . . and he bought it.

Ok, so maybe he's not THAT smart, but now he loves calamari!

And, apparently he loves lemon slices too.
He ate the two that came with the calamari, the one in my diet Pepsi, and then asked for more.

For the main meal, Teenbot went with a classic: pepperoni pizza.
Littletron ordered the kids-sized Spagetti and meatball.
For reals. That's the kids size.

You'd think with all this recognition and rewarding going on, that there would be no misbehaving. But, you'd be wrong.

There were so many bunny-ears being thrown around, I took the liberty of giving them to myself, just to save Littletron the effort.
After we could no longer stuff ourselves any more, we decided to take a little walk down to Dupont Circle . . .
. . . to let the kids run around. Literally.
We tried to get a cute in-line family picture . . .
. . . but one person would not cooperate.
But, he did get 4 A's and 2 B's. So, we'll let it slide.

Way to go kids!

Congrats! I love Buca di Beppo! I also love that you got Littletron to eat calamari by telling him it was chicken. That's my kind of parenting!

Woohoo for smart kids. It would suck to have to send them back, ya know?
