Open House is coming up, and part of the presentation is when I tell the parents a little about myself. In the past I always told them I had kids myself which makes them feel like I understand kids and what theygo through and helps build rapport. Derek will be in Kindergarten at our feeder school and will be getting off the bus at my school each afternoon so it's not like I can keep him secret lol. I've taught 30 years so unless I'm a medical miracle it's obvious I adopted my boys.My two problems with how to word it is once people hear me say they were my grandsons they start calling me Grandma and the other is alot of people have the audacity to ask if my daughter is on drugs. I want to say something short and sweet that won't encourage questions. All I can think to say is I have grown children and now my dh and I have started over with two LOs, and the older is in the K. I don't think anyone would be so rude as to ask how we started over.
