"Not Me" Monday

So far my Monday blows so getting to pretend for just a second that I didn't do these things and that these things didn't happen to me just might save lives. Mostly I mean the lives of Jackass Principal, Aidan, and quite honestly, my own.

I did not throw out every threat in my book, make promises that would surely ruin him, and at one point actually beg my 5 year old to go into his classroom, act normal, and not make me lose my damn mind. Nope, not me!

I did not turn around 500 feet down the street from the school and find Aidan following me home. I also did not take him back to school only to find out that nobody even knew he had left! Nope, that didn't happen. Not to me.

I did not tell Jackass Principal to just stop talking to me because if he repeats the very obvious over and over and over again to me one more time I might strangle him with the band on his staff badge. Nope, not me.

I did not text my husband and tell him if he doesn't want his wife in the paper tomorrow for assaulting said Principal, he better come down there to intervene. Nope, I would never do that.

I did not get home from the school fiasco still fuming, possibly shaking from anger only to get slapped with one more Fuck You in the form of Asher's ass exploding to the point he needed a bath to get sufficiently clean. Nope, didn't happen. No way.

I am not begging God to let me go back to last night and have a do over for today. No, I am. That is happening.

Of course not! Those things would never happen in your life.

The fact that they didn't know Aidan had even left is terrifying. Maybe you should report Jackass Principal to whomever you report those kind of things to...

When my brother was in middle school, my mom ended up pulling him out for various reasons. They did it the "right" way, getting all the records, etc. before transferring him to another school. About a month into his new school, the old school called to say that he had been expelled because he hadn't been to school in a month...Um? Yeah?

Point being? Schools suck and they have no idea what they are doing. I am terrified for my children. Almost makes me want to homeschool.

Ok. No it doesn't.

Hope your Monday gets better and that Tuesday is awesome.

You have got to be shitting me that NO ONE in that fucking school noticed that Aidan had LEFT!!!!!
That is insane!!! I would report Mr. Asshole to the superintendant!
I know Aidan is having a hard time, but it is not your job to keep him in school, it is your job to get him there, and you did!! Un-freakin-believable!!! I am fuming and it is not even my kid. What if, God-forbid, Aidan got hit by a car or something????? That poor kid needs someone to be with him at the school to be with him one-on-one and I KNOW they have some resources for that in the mainstream system for that. I used to volunteer at my sons school and they CAN provide that for your son. You keep at it and don't give up. You did the right thing by calling SB to come to your aid. Keep at it and don't let the fuckers win!!! Give Aidan a hug for me... Hope tomorrow goes better.

Jackass principal needed a good ass kicking it sounded like. Last year I had a similar incident where my son wet his pants so his teacher sent him to the office without notifying them or sending anyone to accompany him. Needless to say he ended up several blocks away from school and on my doorstep and when I called to find out what the H-E-double hockey sticks was going on the reply I got was "oh was that your child in the red shirt,someone said they saw a child leaving the school grounds" WTF! He's a 5 yr old kindergartener and he's under the schools care when he's there. There were quite a few talks with the principal and teacher but somehow it mostly got shoved aside by them. The only conclusion they came to was that they needed better communication. The DUMB F***'s.Good thing I happened to be home that day and there were no perverts trolling for kids because lord knows what all could have happened.
I apologize about the rant and I'm sorry about your horrible no good very bad day.

Nobody noticed he left??? WTH!!!

*Noelle* said...

maybe a new school is in order?? ya hate to do that once the school year has started but you nor your child deserve this crap!! what a shitty principal!!

Krissi said...

So I'm on the edge of my seat to know, did SB come down there? If so how'd HUGE EFFIN JACKASS PRINCIPAL like that? Come on, we need the "Rest of the Story"!!

Ah, I feel ya. What I would not have given for the "do-over" day. Seriously though, you need to explore the idea of seeing a child psycologist. Not because your son has a problem but if you let the school test him, or get involved they will find a way to make it your problem to deal with. Armed with an evaluation and if like me you get a great Dr (that is another issue, I will tell you here to trust your gut when it comes to these guys. It took me two trys) they will even make an appearance on your behalf to help get your son the modifications he may need to help him in school.
The problem I had is that if you have more than one child (this is different for you because this is your fist, my issue was with the last) they treat you one of two ways, you are and idiot and therefore know nothing about children, or two, you have more than one you should know everything about them. The truth is each child is unique and you learn as you go. They are supposed to have the training to help you and guide the child. I also disagree with one statment made. You job does not stop at the school doors although there will be times when they (staff) will try to tell you that. However it is not your job to make school and interesting, educational, and safe place. If Aidan does not like school then they need to sit down and find out why? Is it difficult for him? Do kids pick on him? Is he over stimulated? Is there an undiscovered learning disability that is causing him to get frustrated? These are the questions that they should be asking.
Do not make yourself crazy, get an independent evaluation. If only to assure yourself that it is not a learning or behavior issue. You will then be armed with the information and knowledge that will force the school to work with you. Not knowing that your son was not in class though would have shaken me too.

Do they have Educational Assistants in the U.S.? Here in our system, kids that need a little extra help get some one-to-one in the classroom. It sounds like transitions are a big challenge for Aidan. It used to be my field so if you need any ideas - shoot me an email.

Sarah said...

So I did a Google search of Nebraska newspapers adn your name and nothing came up so I'm just guessing that either SB intervened or you kept yourself from using the Badge of Death. I'm actually kind of bummed about it - How cool would it have been to say "Hey! That's my pal" when you popped up on the Today Show!

Poor you! Poor Aiden, maybe he was so contrary because didn't want to stay and embarrASS himself all over the clASS room?

Smile - it only gets worse :)

what a cluster.
good thing none of THAT happened.

Rhea@mommy23monkeys said...

Wow, I'm really glad none of that happened because that would have been one fucked up day.

((hugs))

Holy fuck. I so would've kicked that principals ass AFTER I picked up my child, had him sitting safely in the back seat, THEN, I would've called the school "just checking to see how my son is doing.." And then waited for the panic of ALL school staff when they couldn't find my son. THEN the ass kicking would've been done, by that time SB would've had time to join in on the fun! What did he do by the way? And does the principal still have balls? And Aidan.. Well, at least he missed you enough to follow you home? ;)

~Ronda~ said...

Wow, Poor Aidan and Poor YOU!! Does the school have a hard time with him or what? And how can they not notice him missing? HELLO!! Maybe its time for a new school, new something, but that might make it even worse, no great brillance for ya tonight, my dear! Only love and prayers, will that suffice?
