My perfectionist, high school valedictorian self wanted to get 100%! I loved getting good grades in school. I even did extra credit work whenever I could so that in my calculus class I actually had a six week average of over 100%. I was (and still am) such a NERD!! I so wish there were grades for mothering. I detest not knowing if I am doing things right and nothing can build my self esteem like a big, fat A with a smiley face next to it!
