The News About The Bear

The heck with getting things done, this is long overdue. :0)

As we all know, High School can really make or break a kid.
Trust me, personal experience, I know this to be true. Some kids are leaders and some kids are followers. I've got 6 kids, some are either one or the other.

This kid here, my #5....


He is a leader.

Last week another kid came up to him inbetween classes and tried his best to talk him into skipping class, not just skipping out but with the promise of turning him on to some drugs.
What did our Bear say?

***try not to take this the wrong way, we keep it real here***

Bear's exact words were...

"Man, f**k you" and then he walked away, head held high.

Later on that same day Kody found out that same kid was caught and lead out of school in handcuffs.

True this may be just a small step in growing up, but in my Momma opinion, in this day and age, this was a HUGE step in growing up and showing the max in maturity.

God, I love that kid. :0)

Have a beautiful day everyone!!

I am so proud that you are so proud of Kody! That takes some guts! He is his own dude, that's for sure! My son refused to let someone who was drunk a couple of weeks ago drive, so he hopped in and drove the dude. Got pulled over, alcohol in the vehicle, he blew zeros, but he still got an MIP. He is nearly 21. He says he doesn't care, he would do it again. Now he gets to pay $200 for the diversion program and he doesn't drink! I was very proud of him for taking care of his friends.

That's awesome! That really does take lots of guts and confidence!!! He must also have been so proud of himself when he saw the kid in handcuffs----that could have been him, if he went along with it. What a lesson!!!!!!!

Soooo very cool when we realize that they do really listen - even when we think they are just sick of hearing us say the same thing over and over again. It does get through as evidenced by what Kody did.

WTG Kody!!!!

And talking about practical stuff. How many wooden spoons and hickory switches you go through, say, per month to make so damn good? :-P

Just one spoon but only when Vinny takes it out for me. lol, feel the sting, DAYUM!

Maloy said...

Ooooh baby! You're HOT!

Btw, I first read it as "when Vinny takes it out ON me". THAT would be even hotter. :-))
