Today is Teacher’s Day. R’s school had declared a holiday today and they had extra class tomorrow. Then suddenly, yesterday evening they sent a note saying that there is school today and no extra class tomorrow. In short, total confusion in the already confused R family.
We had to send some decorations and a card with the kids for the teacher’s day activity. Thankfully the lovely Summerscript had sent a kit to R on her birthday which I worked on yesterday and made some basic designs for her to stick on a card. I worked hard yesterday night spending an hour and a half on that.
Anyways, that done, we were all set.
Today I get a call from her daycare teacher saying R doesnt want to go to school.
Teacher:She says all her daycare friends have leave in their schools so she doesnt want to go. Plus we have celebrations here in daycare as well so she is having fun!
RM: Give her the phone
R: Amma, please
RM: no da you have to go…etc etc etc
Major crying session takes place. Her teacher gets super bugged at me, saying that if she doesnt want to go let her be. I try to explain to her teacher about the celebrations in her school as well. Plus her school is off the first 3 days of next week, so a lot of homework, yaada yaada….
Teacher: Errr..RM, you know what she is saying..
Teacher: She is telling me ‘Teacher, thats why I told you to call my Appa. My Amma will never let me take a day off from school. If you had called up Appa, he would have said yes immediately’
Sigh! now you know Amma is a villian
PS – The brat did go to school. I convinced her about her school friends giving cards to the teacher but she wont be able to give.
PS1 – RD called her up and spoke to her and she told him that Amma is like that only..
PS2 – I can officially retire as a parent soon eh?
