First let me shout out a giant THANK YOU to the twins’ school for not having a kindergarten graduation! I mean look, my kids are 5,5 and 4 and I have already attended 5 graduations for them! (You may remember me ranting about this last year.)
Anyway the little one graduated this week. Truly I don’t even remember which day because of all the sickness, trauma and sleep deprivation that this family has encountered :)
But it was this week. And she was excited to get to work on her last day.
Aw look she really is a good sweet kid. But it’s been pretty obvious throughout the year that her teacher couldn’t stand her.
So when her name was called out and she proudly reached for her diploma, that teacher, announces about my precious baby,
Oh look…a smile…those are far and few in between!
Here’s where I feel like a horrible mother. I didn’t.say.anything. I didn’t defend her.
All I could THINK was f**k you b**ch.
So I guess I’m actually glad I showed restraint.
But I was at a school function for the parents 2 nights later and every mom in that class approached me and expressed how badly they felt when they heard the teacher say it. This was also the broken arm day and I had a few drinks in me so I just felt like crying.
Now that I got a some sleep I don’t feel as rotten but I’m still ruminating a little. I mean if she made a comment like that in front of a room filled with parents, what was she saying when we weren’t there? I think on some level my little one knows the teacher disliked her.
But I also know she’s a tough cookie who’s getting tougher everyday!
No one ever said parenting was easy, huh?
