So, we all know that Lovegirl can be…chatty. And that this can get her in trouble in school. She’s been doing much better – we talk about rules nearly every morning, we pray for a spirit of obedience, and on occasion, I threaten her. No write-ups in quite a while and she’s been pulling either one or no sticks (They pull sticks for minor infractions. 3 pulls = a write up) for a good long haul.
Yesterday when I pick her up, she’s looking all terrified.
Me: Lovegirl, hey. What’s wrong?
Lovegirl: I got in trouble for passing a note.
Me: What? You were passing notes?
Lovegirl: Not notes Mama, just one. I passed a note.
I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. So I chose laughter. Especially after I saw the note. My child is pretty smart, but ma’am, when you pass a note on an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper, at least have the good sense to fold it up. The folds you see in the picture are mine…
…and the note from the teacher
So basically, my kid passed a note in class and I don’t care. The teacher thought it egregious enough to warrant a note home. Where do you stand on this one?
Oh, and that line about only having enough paper for each student to have one piece? Puh-leeze! I know I sent two tablets of that stuff to school at the beginning of the year – don’t pull the paper-poor card. Those kids should have enough paper to write their dissertations.
