Taking responsibility.

Yesterday BB Bob said something borderline – I don’t remember what, I just remember that I cut him off in the middle.

“Dude. Seriously. Teacher. Remember, I already got you suspended once. STOP IT.”

He and his friends laughed, then BB Bob sobered up. With a sheepish smile, “Naw, you didn’t get me suspended. I got myself suspended.”

“True,” I said, and we moved on.

But what a great thing that he recognizes and will admit to that, right?
