Okay. Your turn.

Does this mean the cupcake cake I ordered for the nursery school graduation ceremony won't be needed?

Book Dragon said...

better than seeing my kids can beat up your honor student!

Speedway: I'll help get rid of the evidence ;-)

Katie said...

Very funny! If this is a proud parent of a teenager though, I bet the kid reacted with an eye roll to the idea of this sticker. Whatever mom.

"… yet whose proud parents cannot tell the difference between a car bumper and a window."

Petrea Burchard said...

Hi! The school sent this home with my kid, guilting me into devaluing my personal property!

Clifford Beshers said...

That car looks too young to have kids.

Susan Campisi said...

Smart Car? Or Smart Ass Car?

The best part is your reflection.

Pasadena Adjacent said...

Thats because their kid didn't get one - and they didn't buy a car with a bumper

LONDONLULU said...

Where do they sell that? Love it!

Petrea Burchard said...

Ha ha ha, you guys are funny.

Lulu, I don't know know where to get this, but you might google exact phrases from it and see what you come up with.

Speedway said...

Perhaps this was the "feel-good award" sent home with those children who did not win any of the other medals and certificates handed out by the school to the other more shiny bright little brown-nosers.

Desiree said...

Susan's got my vote!

Petrea Burchard said...

I wish I had prizes to give.

altadenahiker said...

Oh Petrea, no prizes necessary. My self esteem doesn't depend on minor achievements displayed on the bumper of my car. (However, if you've got something for my hatchback window, let's talk.)

Shell Sherree said...

I feel suitably shamed into scraping the 'My Spectacularly Talented Cat Would Win Best in Show If I Ever Entered Her' sticker off my bumper...

Petrea Burchard said...

Karin, I might be able to work up a little something with construction paper, magic marker, and sparklies.

Shell, I think you should leave it. There's often a gluey residue.

frank zgonc said...

My smart kids don't need no lame sticker on the bumper or window of my car...they are self assured and confident in their abilities.

Petrea Burchard said...

Frank, you got it, that is my whole point.

Ms M said...

At least it's not "Baby on Board"...

I don't have any stickers on my car and it seems quite self assured, even though we are often surrounded by large pickups and larger SUVs during our commute.

Bellis said...

Ms M, you made me laugh. My car's self-esteem issues were cured when I stuck a NASA badge on its bumper.

thepublicblogger.com said...

lol...I am a huge fan of irony and rather everyone gets it when they are the subject of it. Funny post. Thanks.

Petrea Burchard said...

Ms. M, the little ones get their self-esteem from their parents, so this speaks well of you.

Bellis, speaking of self-esteem, a NASA badge is the only one I'd put on my car (okay, maybe JPL, or Caltech), and I will be wretched until I have one.

Hello, thepublicblogger, thanks for visiting!

Margaret said...

Susan Campisi knocked it out of the park.

Petrea Burchard said...

Okay, Susan wins the leftover cupcake cake from the nursery school graduation ceremony, plus a sign to hang in her car window that says "pit bulls on board."

beckynot said...

I want a Nasa badge too!

Petrea Burchard said...

We need about a hundred NASA badges. My 8-year-old neighbor has one and is the envy of the block.

Speedway said...

I want a NASA badge, too!

Petrea Burchard said...

I found this link about image use at JPL
http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/imagepolicy/
Otherwise, we might have to wait until the open house and see if there's a gift shop.

TheChieftess said...

Nope...sorry...the only sticker we have on our cars is
"Don't feed our bears"!!!

Shell Sherree said...

Ok, now I want one of TheChieftess's stickers!!

JM said...

Great find, Petrea! :-)
