Is it wrong to keep your kid home from school because he doesn't have any clean underwear?
Yeah. I thought so.
I forgot to tell you all what happened last week. It totally took me down as the coolest mom in the class AND I think the teacher knows that we are deadbeats.
Wednesday was our day to bring the T snack. And we forgot.
Almost even worse, the teacher had already brought T stuff in, and told Mr. Ashley that she knew our schedule was off.
I'm guessing she has figured out that we have no schedule.
So instead she said we could have U for snack. U? Gee, thanks. U sucks for snack. The only thing I can think of is Umbrella shaped cookies and I have the cookie cutter, but it seems like a lot of work.
Can I say once again for the fortune that I'm paying them, they should provide the freakin' snack?
Also, they're still running the pizza and cookie scam, where for the mere price of $7 per meal, my child can have a piece of pizza and a Chips Ahoy cookie.
$7! I could buy a whole pizza for that. And Chips Ahoy cookies? For $7 you can't splurge on some bakery cookies?
So Mr. Ashley and I don't sign up for it, because frankly, the tuition is choking us and we just can't afford a $7 lunch on top of it.
Big Kid hasn't cared all year, but a few days ago he said he was the only kid that brings his lunch on Fridays. He said sometimes his teacher gives him a piece of pizza or a cookie, but it still annoys me that there is even an opportunity to make my kid feel like the outcast because mommy doesn't want to fork over the cash for overpriced pizza and cookies.
Anyway, we woke up late this morning and it was cold and I couldn't find clean undies for Big Kid so I asked if he wanted to stay home.
He said no.
So I told him if he stayed home, I'd take him to the library, make him hot chocolate for breakfast, and we could watch 101 Dalmations. He tried to negotiate some library time after school, but I said no deal.
So he's home and it looks like I'll be paying the library the money I owe them. Damn.
Note to self: do laundry.
