i'm starting a new segment.
it's called "notes from the teacher"
Just to advise you that Nate had a time-out today because he threw sand at a friend...Would you please remind Nate about the importance of following rules for safe play.
What I wanted to write back:
Thank you for providing me with this "teachable moment" because he's such an angel and doesn't create ANY at home. I also appreciate that you think that I'm a retard and don't already enforce rules for "safe play".
What I did write back:
Thank you for letting me know. I spoke to Nate and he said he threw sand because a friend threw it at him first. I let him know that even if that was true it is not ok to throw sand and if someone does it to him he should tell them he doesn't like it and if they continue to let the teacher know.
Oh, and there was an idiot driver this am and i was running late and lost my cool and dropped the f-bomb while the kids were in the car. Nate promptly said Mommy why did you say "f*&@" I lied and said I didn't, I said dork...
Maybe I am a terrible mother.
