yes Sherry - open it on your own, I can't imagine trying to open one (can just imagine the computer beinig a pain at that point) , read the info and get head in gear with DC there watching too. It is just one of those things that parents have to do.
However we can all be there too so don't worry!
i agree - we do need time to compose ourselves. If i was you sherry i would make sure she is busy involved with something and then check your mail.
I really think with letters we should open them too. however, dd1 was aware of when the results were due so was setting by the letter box waiting, it had her name on it so i had to let her open it but she passed it straight to me with a puzzled look as as she didnt understand the jargon! - i remember scanning it searching for that "pass" - thankfully it was there but worded differently.
with dd2 we had a post strike for the medway test, it didnt arrive until very late so i was able to grab and run off the bathroom by myself!
Before i screamed the house down in happiness!
