Hello, Guinness? Um ... Never Mind.

Hello, Guinness Book of World Records?

Is this the Department of Perfect Attendance for Second Graders?

It is?  Well, I'm calling about Boo's perfect attendance record. You know, the one he's been defending like a prize fighter since the first day of first grade, 20 months ago?

Sadly, you can save yourselves a trip to our little state. No need for any award this June.

One and a half years of perfect attendance met its end last night around 12:30 a.m. when the stomach virus made its venegence known, every which way and every possible direction ... if you get my drift.

Fortunately, he's feeling better today.  Let's just not mention the fact that the record is kaput just yet, 'kay?

Wow, Boo -- way to go out with a flourish. That's still an impressive record. Mine was like three weeks since I was a bit of a malingerer.

Wow, one and a half years without missing a day? I can't go three months without missing a day and I'm a freaking teacher! Impressive.

Aww so sweet - wish there had been blogging when my kids were little - but then I would have been an even greater scatterbrained mom.
Way to go mom - keep up the nice posts
