Wow! Mommy's kissing Santa Claus!
I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night
She didn't see me creep
Down the stairs to have a peep
She thought that I was tucked up
In my bedroom, fast asleep
Then I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night
He saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
I did! I really did see Mommy kissing Santa Claus
And I'm gonna tell my dad
Then I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus (tickle, tickle Santa Claus)
Underneath his beard so snowy white
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night
I did! I did! I really did see Mommy kissing Santa Claus
You gotta believe me! You just gotta believe me!
Come on, fellas, believe me!
You just gotta believe me!

I went to Nichols 2010-2012, I barely had to do any work to get all As, the classes were ridiculously easy. I went to a private high school after and there was a huge step-up in terms of difficulty of my classes and general expectations. I did not gain any study skills at all from Nichols because I never had to study for a test there. It did not properly prepare me for high school at all I struggled academically at first. However, I thought it had great diversity, I met people I likely would have met nowhere else. The teachers could have done more about bullying, I was always partnered with my bully. However, most of the teachers were very nice and occasionally very knowledgable. Mrs. McDermott even went the extra mile taking the girls to a career in science talk at Oakton. There was one week when a fight broke out every single day but other than occasional fights it was pretty safe. I guess you could most certainly do worse in terms of middle schools.
