9 down, 10 to go.
Are we all ready for an SS update?
As you know, SS was not in school on Monday. She came on Tuesday and was unprepared to work on a project that the class had known about since before the Thanksgiving holiday. The excuse was that they were rushing to get out of the house that morning and that Mommy forgot to bring her things.
- It is not Mommy's responsibility to bring your things to school
- Rushing out of the house is not an excuse for being unprepared.
(Cue angry e-mail from Grandmama)
I am a horrible, insensitive, mean teacher who OBVIOUSLY doesn't have any children of my own because I don't know how to speak to children and I don't show CHRISTIAN LOVE and kindness and I call myself a CHRISTIAN but I don't act like one and she is just a little child and how DARE I talk to her precious grandchild like that and she want a meeting NOW.
So, after stewing about it for about and hour and after talking to my BFF, I decided that I would need to reply because if I didn't I wouldn't get any sleep.
I sent a polite response clarifying what actually happened in class and letting Grandmama know that her precious wasn't quite as forthcoming as she should have been when relaying the story to her. I openly copied the e-mail to my principal and told Grandmama that I would only meet with her AND the principal.
Of course I received no response and while SS did show up for school today, she left at 11:00 thereby making this her SIXTEENTH absence this year.
And yet, I would much rather deal with her than go back to the wretched job I had last year.
I came home this afternoon to find CRIME SCENE TAPE all around the house behind me. There were police and state troopers EVERYWHERE. I have zero idea what was going on but, from what I could tell, the house had been broken in to. Of course that makes me a little uneasy. Even with killer here:
Ok. Time to make another scarf.
blue and green tonight.
