At the end of the last school term as always school reports were sent home. My 5 year old, Christian, who just started school this year, was quite excited and nervous he almost couldn’t sleep the night before with anticipation.

“Do you get a report mummy?” he asked

“No sweetie, you get reports when you go to school. I don’t go to school anymore.” I explained.

“Oh, well I don’t want you to miss out so I’ll make one up for you and daddy and Lucas”, he beamed. (Lucas is his 20 month old brother)

So below are our report cards written by our 5 year old, Christian.


Sometimes good and sometimes naughty.
He likes his toy car.
He sleeps quiet.
He is cute.
He is playing nicely


Mum always does good work.
Mum always takes care of Lucas.
Mum is always nice.
Mum loves Christian


Dad does work on The Tunnel.
Dad goes to places with us.
Dad loves us.

We haven’t had a follow up parent-child interview yet.

But this recent evaluation reminded that on my other blog I blogged about parents evaluating the job they do. I’ve reposted them here on this blog and you can read them here

    Awwww. I’d be too scared to get my kids to write a report on me! Just finished filing their school reports away here too. Proud mummy moments!

      And my 5 year old even told me that I got the best report. So I got to choose dinner…as long as it was KFC.

      Thanks for the visit Sarah 🙂

      That is too cute, Mrs M. I’d love to know how three-year-old Ella would go at writing a report card for me. Hmmm.. or maybe not! 🙂

        Hi Kellie,

        It is scary. Especially because they have no filter so they will call it as they see it.

        Thanks for the visit.

        Love & stuff
        Mrs M

        Ah ! I cringe at the day when my boys will be “assessing” me. It’ll be like high school all over again ! 🙂
