Yes, thank you, Doctor. I could actually write a book on modeling to children. I realize that it is when you show a child what he/she should do. I know you are not implying that I need to walk down a runway and get my picture taken.
But I did not say that. I just nodded and smiled politely, wishing I could whip out my degrees for her to see. I am now considering attaching my test scores every time I am at a medical appointment for either of my children. They will have access to exams ranging from my grade school years of ITBS to my ISLLC/SLLA exam, which I rocked, I might add. I will also add the following information:
I chose to go to a small Christian school.
I chose to go into the field of education.
I choose each day to be a stay-at-home mom.
I could have done something else.
I could do something else.
Instead, for this season and for a variety of reasons, I am in this role.
Most days I love it.
And I rock at it, too.
But please do not treat me like an uneducated buffoon.
I blame my years in self-contained gifted classes for my knee-jerk reaction of wanting to prove how smart I am to the world. Thanks for letting me vent.
