A dumb blond.
Can you even believe that? I am absolutely livid. I mean, I can handle all sorts of ridiculous name calling, but that one? It's just going way, way past the line of appropriateness, don't you agree? It's not only mean, but it's downright offensive.
I am so going to be on the phone to the school tomorrow as soon as Emma gets on the bus. As a parent respectful of teachers and administrators, I try to stay calm and look at all sides of a situation before I react. I've prevented many an embarrassing moment that way.
But I'm not waiting this time. I have had enough. Emma has had problems with the little girl all year long. I understand friendship issues they're trying to work through, but I also know that Emma does not call anyone but her sister names. (I'm trying to see the humor in this. Heehee.) She's a very conscientious student and always tries to use the "Kelso Wheel".
The Kelso Wheel is the district's way of helping the kids sort through problems... tell the other kid to stop; walk away; get help from a playground supervisor; etc. etc.
Emma has done all of this over and over and over again. And I am sick and tired of this other kid being a total brat and getting away with horrible behavior.
Oh, I am so going to demand punishment for that kid. (I better calm down a little here. My keyboard doesn't deserve to get hurt by my fast and furious typing!)
You wanna know the ironic thing in this whole "dumb blond" comment?
This girl is blond, too!
