Next Stop: Reform School


Wanna know what heinous behavioral infractions Becca committed today? Mind you, they were enough to merit having a note sent home.

1. She stuck her tongue out at a kid.
2. She left tissue hanging out of her nose.

I think maybe her teacher needs to spend a semester in a slightly rougher school, no? I never thought I would be one of those parents who takes her kid's side against the rest of the world, but Mrs. Cook needs to give me SOMETHING to work with.

  1. "She left tissue hanging out of her nose." I'll tell you, these kids are going to hell in a handbasket.

  2. I know what you mean. When I was a school teacher, I once sent a kid to the office for setting off firecrackers in the classroom. And I debated about whether or not that was too harsh...I was really surprised when my son got sent to the office in Kindergarten for "standing on another student's foot." Hello?

  3. Thought you would like that, Mer. This is, I think, her second year of teaching. She has soooo much to learn.

  4. Do you get the idea that Mrs. Cook was a major tattletale when she was a kid?

  5. Hope by now Mrs. Cook has come to grips with the realization that when it comes to allergy season, Becca's tissue strategy is really quite ingenious and efficient. When it comes to insults, boogers and snot, 9 year olds always know best...

  6. Take her out for happy hour, preferably somewhere with lethal Margaritas. She's just forgotten what it's like to get messy. And tequila has that funny way of being able to remind one what messy really is.

  7. I think she & Otis need to work up some sort of teacher-exchange program! THEN she'll understand!

    Just make sure Becca doesn't learn to draw male genitalia all over the school, like one of my little darlins!
