Things I Know was going to be lighthearted and fun this week.
That was until I found out that indeed year 1 kid had been telling the truth and he was actually performing at assembly yesterday afternoon. (In my defence he had been saying they were going to be singing their song at each assembly for about a month so I was a little sceptical yesterday!!)
Anyway back to the story- I figured I should suss it out and looked on the school facebook page and there was the notice tucked a few stories down from the top.
I popped it on our year facebook group and immediately I was being praised as no one had known about it. (Yes I am a saint!!). For the record if you don't have a school year facebook group can I suggest you get one, our year group is fantastic!!
So myself and the demonic 2 year old attended assembly, a little late but we were there!! Year 1 kid did not see me but knew I was there as he could hear his brother!! W hoops!!
My long winded point is- apparently just putting important info like assembly performance on the schools facey page is perfectly acceptable and it is my/our responsibility to check up on it.
I have to call BS because to me that is not good enough.
Facebook, while it can be a great tool, is NOT the freaking be all and end all. I happen to know some people who do not have facebook so how would they find info out?? Also it is a common fact that facey picks and chooses to show posts etc so it can be quite easy for them to never sow up on your feed.
Also while I am at it email is also not foolproof. I know this because I replied to an email on Wednesday, or so I thought, only to get an email yesterday which made me realise that my email had not actually gone through.
Anyhoo the performance was really sweet. It involved all the year 1 and 2 kids and this song
The even more awesome news is that year 1 kids class is performing again at the next assembly, there is nothing I love more than heading to assembly with the demon child!!
Have a fab week guys!! Just to be a hypocrite could you all please pop over and like my facebook page!! Just click the little f at the top there!! Oh and apologies for not getting around to all the linkers from the last couple of weeks, I promise to visit y 'all this week!!
The other night (Friday I think), long after my parenting duties were done for the day, Year 1 kid starts randomly rapping the above song. After a little searching/me deciphering what he was saying we found it on youtube!!
Apparently the teacher is playing this in the classroom and all the kids are loving it. They dance around and do all the moves!!
Now my 3 walk around the house like they are part of NWA, with the hats backwards etc. I have to admit it is quite funny!!
Then there is this picture. Sums me up perfectly at the moment!!
