Got one of those calls this morning

From the nurses office at the dd's school. I was thinking that maybe she had gotten sick. Which would be odd since she usually acts a bit off when she's coming down with something and she's been fine lately. But no, apparently they call you about everything. Including when your kid decides to, somehow and we don't understand how, go off the side of the slide at recess and, agian somehow, hit herself on the head. They can't find a bump or anything and she is acting totally fine. So back to class she goes and I told the nurse to make sure the teacher tells the after school care people that she bonked her head. Even though I'm sure if it was anything at all it was just a tap. I had to at least sound like I gave a hoot even though I know in reality the kid is taking someone for a ride.

My kid is a wus when it comes to pain, if it was an actual bump she'd be screaming and wailing her fool head off. If it was real everyone would know. I think I know what happened, some other kid was messing around and accidently pushed her aside or some such and she was trying to be dramatic. Drama queen, that's what I gave birth to. It's what happens when you breed with one....

ah yes, I have recieved many calls to let me know this kid this that and we just had to let you know. I also get a letter sent home documenting everything. Think they have been sued much?!

Ha! That last sentence made me laugh out loud. (Not good when you're sitting in a quiet office with your boss.)

Apparently they have to call you. Whatever. So um, where did your kid get a hold of a bowling pin at school? And how did he make it connect with his head? I mean that my dear is talent.

it wasn't a *real* bowling pin. it was one of those plastic ones that's weighted on the bottom only. they were doing "inside" PE or recess.

dunno exactly how my son's face got confused as a bowling ball . . .
