Sorry to be MIA again! School is coming to a close and there seems to be more stuff to do than usual. My DD is doing her best to get herself sent to an all girls school for the rest of her school career, my DS is starting on ADHD meds this week and I almost got into a fist fight with a Kindergarten teacher at his school on Monday! No Kidding! I dropped him off after the Dr. appointment at 12:30. He did not want to go to school so he was crying and fussing to the substitute teacher in the hallway. (she is a friend of mine, our girls are BFFs) This other teacher comes out of her classroom and starts yelling at my son, while I am STILL IN THE HALLWAY! It went something like this....
Teacher: "What Now? OMG! You better shut your mouth and get in that classroom right now. You disturbing all the other children, coming in here at 12:30 making all that noise! " ...this point I am turning around...."What kind of mother brings her kid to school at 12:30?"...at this point I am charging back up the hallway...
Me: "Excuse Me?"
Teacher: blank 'deer-in-headlight' look
Me: "That is MY child you are talking to and YES, I did bring him at 12:30 because he just got back from the doctor. How dare you yell at my son!"
Teacher: "I was talking to the sub..."
Me: "I was standing right there and I heard every word you said...you expect me to believe that you were telling an adult to shut their mouth and get in the class room?"
Teacher: "Well, he was..."
Me: "I don't care WHAT he was doing, you have no right to speak to my child like that..." I put my finger in her face at this point, there was steam coming from my ears...I swear!..."Don't you EVER, EVER speak to my child like that again! He does not get that at home and he is SURE NOT going to get it from YOU!"
Teacher: " I am sorry, I will apologize to your son."
Me: "Yes, I believe that you should."
Then I turned and walked off before I slapped her! I don't remember ever being that mad! I mean, you can say mean things to me or about me, but DO NOT start on my kids!
GGGGRRRRRRR!!!!!!!! What would you have done? Just curious... I did go back the next day to confirm that she apologized and also to apologize for losing my temper. Not that I was wrong, but I should not have "gone postal" on her...hehehehehe
