Ok. So this isn't going to be a real wordless Wednesday because, really, I shouldn't be allowed to do one of those for a while given my lengthy blog absences of late.
Today kicked my butt. Seriously. I think Wednesday decided to be Monday today. Without getting too specific, because I can't, I had to make the worst phone call I have ever made today concerning a student. The ramifications are going to be epic and I am not looking forward to it. I also had to make a few other phone calls to parents today that were no fun, either. I know it is the nature of my job but that doesn't mean I have to like it.
One thing I still havve not been able to get over is the fact that some parents believe everything that comes out of their child's mouth. I grew up in the "teacher is always right" generation. Even if my parents thought that the teacher was wrong, I never knew it. They just didn't tell me or even act like they were angy with the teacher in front of me. We were always told that if we got in trouble at school we got it twice as bad at home and they weren't kidding.
It astounds me that I deal with parents who automatically blame the teacher for whatever it is that went wrong. I don't get it. I just don't get it.
So tonight, I am going to watch TV, crochet, not eat the whole house and the dog, and relax.
After all, tomorrow is another day.
And it isn't Monday.
