Happy All Saints Day. Happy Birthday to the New Orleans Saints! Actually, All Saints Day is a pretty big deal in New Orleans; it is the day families visit the graveyards and clean them up and add fresh mums.
Tomorrow is half a day of school followed by optional parent teacher conferences. I've always been one of those moms who showed up religiously for those things. This is the third time around and I'm probably not going to go, but will call the school and ask them to have the teacher call me. Frankly, I don't want to stand in line to talk to the teacher for two minutes to have her tell me what I already know. If there was a major problem, parent-teacher conference day isn't the day to deal with it. Teachers always say that the parents they see on these days aren't the ones they need to see. What do you think--do you attend parent teacher conference day? If you are a teacher, how useful are these days to you?
