Nooooooooo! It can't be! The weatherman is predicting snow for us tomorrow already. It just isn't fair, we didn't even get our Indian Summer. I don't know why it's called that, but I want it.........

I remember last year in November it was unseasonably warm & I was wearing shorts. I'm just not ready for snow.

Laugh for the day...Mature Lady Driver

Tuesday, October 06, 2009

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.

Don't Mess With Mature Ladies

Nicholas had an amazing Monday

Tuesday, October 06, 2009

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 haven't been following the story because of my surgery and being away for a bit but I'm so glad he is doing better. I work in education and often see how cruel and bullying kids are. Sounds as if he has some great support at school especially from his teacher. It is so important for kids to like school.

Update about my son

Sunday, October 04, 2009

I know it's only Sunday and if you've been following my blogs then you'll know my poor son has been picked on because of his height. By bigger kids no less. Well I did notify 2 teachers by email. The teacher of the kids picking on my son and his own teacher. His teacher has been an absolute angel. I'm pasting her reply comments to my emails so you will see that this will get resolved, and quickly. I am so grateful to this teacher for taking me serious and for once my son is not dreading going to school tomorrow since he knows things are going to get resolved. I want to say thank you to all of my spark friends for your support and especially for all the support from friends to help me beat up the guilty culprets emoticon

These are the emails from the teacher. I'll let you all know how his Monday goes....

I am so sorry this has happened. Nicholas has never come to me to let me know he was having problems on the playground. I am sick in my stomach about this. You have a wonderful boy. I relate to this because of the harassment ___ went through.
Here are some thoughts. Next week, I will go out at recess with the children and observe what is going on. I will also be sure nothing inappropriate happens. I will e-mail you about how it went.
Secondly, if Nicholas ever wants to stay inside with a friend to play a game he is welcome. I never go to lunch and am always in the room so it is not a problem.
The third graders will be told they cannot play with the uppergrades and vice versa.
I will also talk to Nicholas that he needs to tell an adult when something is happening to him that he doesn’t like and that is not tattling, but reporting.
Please know I am listening to you and will be proactive in this situation so that Nicholas starts enjoying school.

I promise on God's Bible I will get to the bottom of this situation.

Please tell Nicholas that I will make sure he has a great day tomorrow. I am glad he finally told someone what was happening.

    I feel for your son. I was chubby & I wore glasses and had red hair & freckles. You can imagine with that combination how much I was teased. I pray that things a worked out for him. Sounds like contacting his teacher was a step in the right direction. I am glad to know she will be looking out for him. Hang in there.

Thank You Spark Friends on my behalf & my sons

Saturday, October 03, 2009

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. emoticonthat 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 soooooooooooooooooooo ADMIRE your loving patience.

TRULY you are a good soul.

Is there any way to call a meeting with the principle and teachers in person and share your concerns and tell them that if this happens again where the school FAILS to protect your child or any child from HARM that you will sue the school and/or transfer your child to a different school?

I know personally how it is to be the UNDER dog and people beating us up and picking on us in school and the FEAR that is build inside of us and the stomach crinching everytime I had to walk IN that school building. There was no one to protect me and I mean no one.

I am glad YOU are there for your son,

My prayers are with you both for something to be done NOW.

Sorry, I didnt mean to get so emotional..... Just brought back memories and its sooooooooo important for your son or any child to feel SAFE in his school environment.

Dear God, please help this lil boy, pleaseeeeeeeeeee

God bless you emoticon

    Tell him if that doesn't work, I'll send my DH after the 6th graders with me in tow. He's a tall, big guy who I am told looks like a biker (I don't see it, but it might explain why I am attracted to him...hehe).

Never mess with a momma--we're the fiercest of the bunch!

    I really hope the school takes care of this NOW. Children need to be able to attend school without being picked on and teased.
Maybe I could come help you beat up those 6 graders. I am 5 foot 1 inch. emoticon
