Every two years I am required to prove myself.
Prove I am qualified to wear my badge to work.
To work in the ER. 

I am required to take an Advanced Life Support Class
It always stresses me out!

I wore this shirt.
This is my "instructor" teaching  us about wave form capnography.

This "instructor" is my oldest child!!!
Do you have any idea what it is like?
To  be required to take a class from your own spawn?
To have to prove yourself competent?
To prove that you know something?
When to them you know nothing?

Stressful I tell ya!

And I passed.
It's a good thing too.
I brought her into this world.......

But seriously, she made the class fun. 
She's a great teacher. 
And I'm so proud of her.

It's funny, because when you said, "This is my instructor," I thought it was a picture of you from the back.

I love this! And I want one of those t-shirts.

So cool you could take the class from your daughter. Must make you proud. Congrats on proving yourself for two more years....I totally understand. Teachers also have to recertify, but only every six years here in AZ. Have a great weekend!

Good to know your spawn didn't fall far from the spawning tree! (....?)
You are brilliant people. MMH is lucky to have you!

She is so cute and so smart just like her Mother!! I'm proud of her too!! Way to go Lyns!

My sister always gets stressed out about those tests too. I love, love, love that shirt! And I definitely would have to think twice about taking a class from one of my children. :) blessings, marlene

I bet you passed with flying colors Tauna. Congratulations... you are too funny.
Funny how things are turned around. Maybe some day, your grownup spawn will have to be tested by her own spawn. hahaha.

Thanks for yoyr visit to my blog. I always appreciate your visit.

Oh honey I would of been terribly upset if I had missed this post. Thank goodness I did not. I loved reading about having your daughter as your teacher. Talk about adding stress to already what we have. haha
Of course there are no doubts to any of us who know you that you would not pass. Your are very capable Nurse and look you raised a very smart daughter too boot. haha
I was looking up your site when you came by tonight and left me a very sweet and much needed comment.
I too have missed you very much and I know now that I waited too long to come by and visit.
Hopefully all I need is my blogging buddies and some sunshine to get back into enjoying this beautiful life God has given me.
Thank you for caring. I love you
