First Week at Residential School--The Verdict

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...” -- Charles Dickens

Reports are in: Meghan is doing great!! I ‘ve heard from her teacher everyday this week, and Yes, I’d even called the house every single night to see how she was. They did say that she tried a few of her tricks from her “infamous’ bag of tricks—tricks used to manipulate or con any grown adult to complete frenzy in order to get her way! But, as trained professionals that they are, they didn’t fall for such arresting little tricks but instead showed her “the ways of her new world” through a picture schedule and reward system for doing a great job in the end. It started working, but latest report just proved my theory that she will not back down from her “try, try, and try again” philosophy that she had practically invented if not perfected. If you ask me, I think that this clever girl is lying awake at night plotting her next scheme to trick, manipulate and then overtake the house on Francine Rd.—ever read Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities (a favorite book of mine by the way), I fear that the Rein of Terror has only just begun for the folks at Francine Rd!!…(Oh, just kidding!!)

Madame DeFarge, here she comes…(Just kidding again, really!!)

“It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known.” -Charles Dickens, Tale of two Cities
