Hey, hey, it’s Friday and I’m Red Bullin’ it this morning kids…if only I could add vodka to it while at work. You know these employers, they have the wrong idea about the workplace—we could benefit from a little alcohol on the job now and then, ya feel me?
Listen, I’ve come to the conclusion that it doesn’t always pay off to be observant. However, when you’re a parent it’s a must. You always have to be on the look out–looking for clues, watching for behaviors, reading body language etc. it’s not something we’re born with- it’s something we must develop, nurture and pursue.
Me, being the most observant individual I know have taken note of the fact that for the past couple of days the toddler’s name has been on the chalk board when I pick him up from school. The teacher isn’t there for me to ask her about it, but it wasn’t THAT long ago since I’ve been in school and I don’t remember your name being on the chalk board as meaning you’ve done something spectacular, ya know?
This morning I decided to ask my favorite teacher if she was aware of any, I don’t know….. listening issues that the toddler might be having..I mean, he is 3 and there’s not a 3-year-old in the world that doesn’t struggle with listening from time to time or
every day of their life!
She asked why? Of course she should have known I’m Momma inspector fucking gadget and happen to take note of things most wouldn’t. I explained the chalk board. She told me yes that Max was being allowed to simply do what Max wanted to do regardless of the rules because the teacher was “too nice” grrrrreat!! So I have one of those kids huh?
I told Max not to tell the teachers no because it wasn’t nice and that he needed to be good listener. We’ll see how this pans out people. I still haven’t followed up to see how the hiding thing is going.
Remember he was hiding from the teacher when she would walk out and then walk back into the class room. Prankster I’m tell you.
He has a partner in crime ya know–he isn’t operating alone, it’s ATTACK OF THE TODDLERS!!!!! his partner? it’s a girl. Well, at least for that I can say he’s one smart boy, even at 3 he knows woman always have a better strategy at being scandalous lol.
Here’s to a scandalous weekend Momma’s!
Happy Parenting (and please try not to be too observant you just might find out you have “that” kind of kid, whatever “that” is).
