For me a good day is a day without a call from a teacher. I'd have the operator screen my calls at work, but I think the teachers have figured that one out and now make the Oompas call me themselves to give the bad news.
ISS = In School Suspension.
I may be mistaken but I don't think any of my teachers ever had to call my parents... Well, except for that honey bee incident, and that wasn't entirely my fault because I specifically told that stupid boy NOT to squeeze his hands together once he cupped them over the bee on the flower...
And that sprained wrist never would have happened if that other boy hadn't tried to run away like a sissy when I twisted his hand ever so gently behind his back and up to his shoulder...
All in all I think my folks got off easy as far as I was concerned. But not me. I've had the food fight call, the 'kicking the kid in the face' call, the unauthorized making of foil Star Wars fighting vehicles in Math class, the 'hasn't turned in any homework all year' call, you name it, my kids have done it and you can be sure the school/s have called me about it.
So yeah, does that old 'till death do us part' bit in our wedding vows apply to the kids as well?
Okay, not really, I'm just kidding... but it would kind of be nice to know... just in case, cos you never know when the option might come in handy, one day, some day, after the millionth call from the school.
Only one call so far this week. Of course this is only Monday. And that was only one Oompa. I still have two others in school, and each Oompa has 7 teachers. That still leaves 20 phone call opportunities.
I can hardly wait.
