I think this must have been how my son was feeling yesterday. Monday night he announced that his teacher had sent him to the principals office. I was like, what kind of teacher sends a kindergartner to the principals office on his first day of school. I asked him lots of questions trying to decided if this was just some story he had come up with, after about ten minutes of questioning I decided he was telling the truth. He said some kid pushed him down so the teacher sent them both of them to the office.
I know probably every parent thinks this, but my son really isn't the type to get in fights with kids. If anything he's the biggest pushover you've ever met. He lets his two year old brother pick on him for heck sakes. Needless to say as the night went on the more upset I was. But, that night and morning his story stayed the same. I decided that the next day I would go and talk to his teacher.
So that day I got my act together and went into talk to his teacher. I walked in and said, "So, Mr M. here said he was sent to the principals office yesterday. " She said, "No he wasn't, she looked at him and said, Mr. M. "Did you get sent to the principals office." Right away he pipes up and tells me it was just a joke. I wanted to wring his little neck. I felt like such a dork. So............he won't be playing with any friends this week.
Later that day my husband decided to take the kids on a walk and give me a little break. About a half hour later I hear Mr. M screaming his guts out. He does this often so I sorta ignored it. I figured he'd gotten in trouble or something. Then my husband yells for me to come and help. Poor guy had biffed if BAD on his bike and was all scraped up. He looked awful, I'll prove it. Luckily for us my husband had bought him a helmet just a few days earlier or it could have been so much worse.
I felt so bad for him, you could tell it hurt so much. All he wanted that night was for me to rub his back, he said it made if feel better.
I kept him home from school today, you could tell he just hurt, he seems to be doing lots better this afternoon, lets hope tomorrow is a better day!
I did get in a little sewing yesterday before, or I guess in between all the drama, here is a sneak peek. That fabric is called Gobble Gobble, and is by Sandi Gervais, it's in stores now. I better get my act together since fall is just a couple week away, I so excited!!!
