My last few blogs have been so serious and about my son. Speaking of which, today was another amazing day for him.
So now...I thought a joke might be fun...
A mature (over 40) lady gets pulled over for speeding...
Older Woman : Is there a problem, Officer?
Officer : Ma'am, you were speeding.
Older Woman : Oh, I see.
Officer : Can I see your license please?
Older Woman : I'd give it to you but I don't have one.
Officer : Don't have one?
Older Woman : Lost it, 4 years ago for drunk driving.
Officer : I see...Can I see your vehicle registration papers please.
Older Woman : I can't do that.
Officer : Why not?
Older Woman : I stole this car.
Officer : Stole it?
Older Woman : Yes, and I killed and hacked up the owner.
Officer : You what?
Older Woman : His body parts are in plastic bags in the trunk if you want to see
The Officer looks at the woman and slowly backs away to his car and calls for back up. Within minutes 5 police cars circle the car. A senior officer slowly approaches the car, clasping his half drawn gun.
Officer 2 : Ma'am, could you step out of your vehicle please! The woman steps out of her vehicle.
Older woman : Is there a problem sir?
Officer 2 : One of my officers told me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner.
Older Woman : Murdered the owner?
Officer 2 : Yes, could you please open the trunk of your car, please.
The woman opens the trunk, revealing nothing but an empty trunk.
Officer 2 : Is this your car, ma'am?
Older Woman : Yes, here are the registration papers.
The officer is quite stunned.
Officer 2 : One of my officers claims that you do not have a driving license.
The woman digs into her handbag and pulls out a clutch purse and hands it to the officer.
The officer examines the license. He looks quite puzzled.
Officer 2 : Thank you ma'am, one of my officers told me you didn't have a license, that you stole this car, and that you murdered and hacked up the owner.
Older Woman : Bet the liar told you I was speeding, too.

For those of you following the bully story of my son, here is the latest update.
He had an amazing Monday. The teacher went to recess with him and played with him and some of his friends coming up with games to play. After school I asked him how school was.
He gave me two thumbs up, a HUGE smile and said, "it was GREAT!" I can't tell you how excited I was. He was like a completely different child. He chatted all the way home. I pick my kids up from school, they go out of our district. He chatted all night. It was just amazing. I couldn't be happier and I know he feels the same.
Thanks to everyone who has been following the saga and lending support. You are all amazing. Have a wonderful Tuesday.

I want to say thank you to all of my amazing spark friends. All of your support for my son was truly amazing. I will keep you all up to date on this matter. We first became aware there was a problem Thursday. That night I contacted the 6th grade teacher & the next day she addressed it immediately. Unfortunately, we weren't completely aware of the whole story. Hopefully it will all be fixed for him Monday, Tuesday at the latest. It is sad though that there are playground supervisors who did not notice this behavior, and this school & playground are actually quite small. Tonight I also contacted both the 3rd & 6th grade teachers on this matter. I will be keeping my fingers crossed. I would hate to have to beat up a bunch of 6th graders myself. that always makes my son laugh when I say that. Most of these kids are all taller than me too. It really stinks being short!

I am so upset tonight, but to the point of tears . I just found out why my little 8 year old son hates school. Turns out the 6th graders at his school have been picking on him since school started.
Yesterday my daughter comes home from school and tells me one of her friends complained because Nicholas picked on her. Remember he is 8 and very tiny for his age. When I found out exactly what it was he did, I was so mad and prepared to ground him until he was 21. Later I asked him why and then the truth came out and I could have just cried. Turns out the 6th graders at his school had been picking on him for some time, they would twirl him then let him go. He said it hurt every time he fell to the ground. And whichever 6th graders weren't twirling him, they would all form a circle around him. When I say he is tiny for his age, I do really mean tiny. Unfortunately he got the short genes in the family which also makes me sad. And they will call him short names, but they hurt just as much. Growing up I also hated school. I grew up in Chicago and suffered the same thing on the playground. I would try to hide it was so awful. It has stayed with me into adulthood and I will not let my son suffer the same thing. It makes me cry that he didn't feel he could come to someone with this problem right away.
I tell him being short makes us special, but when he's treated like this it's hard. I have even considered that shot that may or may not make shorter stature people grow. I shouldn't have to consider things like this to make him feel safe.
I am so upset by all of this. But you know what upsets me most???????????
WE SEND OUR KIDS TO A CHRISTIAN SCHOOL!
My son could use any and all prayers you can send his way. Thank you all.
I lost my mojo a week or so ago, and got it back. But this just makes me so sad. The crying and hurt has to stop soon. For both of us.
