TAL Challenge: Mic Drop

Three times when it's been like, Bam.

Act One: He Swims

Mac got in the pool for swimming lessons today.

I won this battle, people.

All it took was taking away and then offering electronics, sweets, and high top sneakers.

"I should really swim every day," said Mac, after we went to Inside Out and shared a popcorn.

Right, kid.  Exactly right.

Act Two: The Points

I've written about this before, but I can't find it.  Remember that one time when I said to a parent, "Look, I know and my colleagues know that this is cheating.  But if the message that you want to send to her is that this behavior is okay, then I'll give her the points back."

 "I think you're doing this just to appease me," the mom said.

"Yes," I said.  "That's what I'm doing."

So, I gave them back, but I also dropped the flipping mic.

Act Three: The Show

I think Shef might be super embarrassed by my performances in the next three Middle School Talent Show Teacher Acts.  This finale of my very first show, we can agree, was a total *mic drop*.

Dropping the mic. I like this expression and will toss it around today as I best others. Great post.
