Today marks the beginning of another week.
Week two of the 2010 - 2011 School Year.
Week ONE had a FEW Hiccups.
the youngest boy is trying to "learn" the rules at school
he pushed it a few times
he received THREE worms on his apple
TWO on day TWO
ONE on day FOUR
he is learning
worms are not good, except for fishing
Boy # 2 . . .
second oldest boy
in SECOND grade
who shall remain nameless
has a new teacher this year
a man teacher
which is VERY cool
Mr. C doesn't tolerate nonsense
Boy # 2 enjoys nonsense
Mom, Dad and Mr. C . . .
not so much!
Boy # 2 gets a mark at school
the very first week
wouldn't be quiet
after several warnings
naughty note was issued
naughty note came home
naughty note was given to Mom
Mom was NOT happy
Mom showed the naughty note to Dad
Dad was NOT happy
Boy # 2 was given his ONLY warning
You are to obey and listen to your teacher
You are not to talk during seat work
Boy # 2 said he understood
Boy does not want privileges taken away
Boy didn't have any more naughty notes about talking come home
Today is Sunday
Mom was checking mud room lockers - each child has one
pulled out backpacks
pulled out lunch boxes
opened 1st backpack
notebook, folder, papers . . .
naughty note from Mr. C
Boy # 2 did not give us the note
Boy # 2 was called in from playing outside
Mom was not happy and actually disgusted
Boy did not complete his homework on Thursday
Mom asked Boy Why?
Boy said, "I didn't have time"
Mom furrowed her brow and said, "Excuse Me"
"I didn't have time"
Hmmmm, Not the Way I Remember it.
I said, "Let's review"
Boy, you came home from school
I asked you if you had homework
You said, only my Bible verse
Do you remember that?
Boy answered, "yes"
Mom reminded the boy . . .
it is NEVER acceptable to lie
you should have completed your homework
there is no excuse
you get some paper
and a pencil
Get the homework you were to do
the instructions say complete this page by writing the words 10 times
the instructions say write your name 10 times
We have a little change for you
You didn't complete your homework like you were instructed
I am not going to fight you all year
You will sit down and write each paper 50 times
the 10 times you were instructed
40 times for interest
yes, I am a homework loan shark
I demand high interest
in hopes the boy will learn
Make sure to complete our homework
all of it
Make sure Mom gets ALL notes from Mr. C
Do NOT lie
for ANY reason
Mom will find out
She has connections you know!
Looking forward to a GREAT week
