These days when I look at my mobile and notice the school calling, I immediately think, “Anna.” Yesterday was no different. And, my thinking was correct.
Anna’s teacher first wanted to let me know that she had “told a story” the day before. According to her teacher, Anna had told her friends she had surgery on her pinky finger. I let her teacher know we would address the importance of telling truthful stories.
She wasn’t really in trouble for this next little incident. Her teacher just wanted to “make (me) aware” of Anna’s computer skills.
Anna’s Teacher: “Anna was at the school computer, and I heard her saying, ‘Ugh! I can’t log into my account!’”
When she went to view Anna’s computer screen, this is what she saw:
Anna’s Teacher: “I was surprised she could find the Twitter web site!”
Me: “Er, yes. Me, too.”
Seriously. Where did she acquire Twitter knowledge and those skills? Probably her Dad. I’m sure of it.
When I picked her up from school, I asked why she had told her friends she had surgery on her pinky finger.
Anna: “What? I didn’t tell them I had surgery on my pinky finger! I told them I had surgery on this finger!” She said, pointing to her index finger.
Being the mother of Anna Takle, friends, is why I should never be short on blog material.
