You know how when you're in school you get grades on stuff? So you know whether or not you're doing a good job?
I miss that.
I was always really good at school. So getting good grades at the end of the year always gave me a nice little boost. Like, okay Meg...you're doing a good job. This fancy schmancy professor said so, so it must be true.
And then when you go to work, you have these things called annual reviews. And while it's a more nerve-wracking experience than getting a report card, it's always nice to have an opportunity to get feedback from your superiors, especially when it's positive.
But when you're a parent, you don't get a report card or an annual performance review. So sometimes it's hard to know whether or not you're doing a good job.
Which is why it was so awesome to get this note from our waiter at Olive Garden this weekend...
Yes. That's right. An Olive Garden waiter said my kids were polite. In writing.
This will definitely hold me over till next year. In fact, I might just laminate it and carry it around in my wallet as proof that I'm doing something right. I mean, the man at the Olive Garden said so, so it must be true.
