The other day I had an epiphany. This great fountain of knowledge would have been put to better use when I was in elementary school and is actually quite worthless now. But had I had this little golden nugget of smarts when I was a kid a lot of stress and worry could have been avoided.
Listen up all you grade schoolers out there. (There could be some, I had one comment on my blog once.)
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BRING SOMETHING FOR SHOW AND TELL EVERY SINGLE WEEK.
You can slack of every other week, or even for a whole month! And guess what else. . . . You're not graded on Show and Tell. If you bring something kind of lame, you don't get a C-. If you forget, you don't get an F!
Do you know how many weeks I spent running through my house and/or backyard trying to find something cool that would get me a good grade for Show and Tell? I was terrified I'd fail Show and Tell if I didn't bring anything. And those days I forgot to bring something, ugh. I was riding low in my seat just imagining the big F that was being written right next to my name in the teacher's grade book.
So don't y'all be worrying your pretty little heads about your class's Show and Tell. It's nothing to stress over. Remember, just breathe in and out, sit high in your seat and say, "Nah, I didn't feel like it this week. Maybe next week."
