So Glad

Arwen is on black again today. Which means I got a call from her teacher (again) about her behavior (again). This time she didn't throw away extra popcorn kernels as instructed. *sigh*

So after speaking with my child the teacher comes back onto the phone. I explain my niece was here yesterday and Arwen's behavior is always worse after a visit, which I know is no excuse. Teacher laughs a bit and I tell her this is why Zoe doesn't visit often.

"I love her but she's hard, so hard by the time she goes I'm ready to hand her over."

"Now you know how I feel at 3pm each afternoon, don't get me wrong, I love Arwen too, but by 3pm I'm ready too." She tells me.

"Yes," I agree. "I do understand. It's the reason I'm dreading the upcoming summer."

"It's not the summer I'm worried about for you, it's puberty."

Really? Was that absolutely necessary? Maybe you have some sort of humor that I just don't "get" but seriously. Do you think that statement was at all humorous? Because I know it wasn't appropriate, not to mention, totally unprofessional.

I'm telling you, I cannot wait until next year.
