"Hi, this is Jennifer Buxton letting you know that James Buxton - B U X T O N - will miss his third period class today. He needs to come home and paint his unicorn."
Okay, it didn't go down exactly like that, but pretty close. I called James out of school today so he could finish the Glitter Queen.
And he did it!
They're both fabulous.
I have no regrets.
