My Tuesdays...

MY Tuesdays: Leave the house at 3:30 to get Mikah to cheer by 4, rush back to the school to pick Jett up from Mad Science at 4:10, get to the house by 4:15 for Presley's speech therapy, leave the house after Presley's therapy to grab dinner for Mikah, so that she can eat in the car, after I pick her up at 5:30 from cheer, because then we head straight to her volleyball practice at 6. Back to the house by 6:15 so Jett can be picked up by his buddy Timo, who plays football with him every Tuesday and Thursday at the school (a nice college kid that has been providing some one on one 'guy time' with him since his daddy has moved, and since he has informed me that 'when I throw the football it doesn't spin like when daddy throws it'... whatEv kid!) then pick Mikah up from volleyball practice at 7, and come home to do everyones homework! *sigh*

Here is one way to get your 7 year old son out of bed quickly!!

"Jett!! Wake up!! You need to come get this huge toad out of the house!!!"
I have no idea how it got there, I just know it was the first thing I saw when I woke up... right there in the middle of the hallway... Ick!

Of course, Jett thought this was the best way in the world to wake up...

What's a Mom to do?

I received a call from the principal this morning, she had Jett in her office, and wanted to explain an incident, that had just happened.
While lining up to go to class, a boy walked up to Jett, and asked 'Do you want to fight?', apparently not an odd request, if you're a 7 year old boy !?#*%¡?!
Never the less, witnesses say that Jett replied, 'No'. However, the boy proceeded to kick Jett in the shin, to which Jett promptly punched the kid in the face :/
As I'm speaking to this lovely principal, who unfortunately, due to many incidences that
Jett was NOT so innocent, I have become quite familiar with, she seemed emphatic on stressing, that these reports came from good sources, and that it did happened, as she is saying it happened, so she doesn't feel Jett is to blame. But he still did get lunch detention in her office, because 'there is always a better way to deal with situations', I thanked her for the call and I told her, that I will also be addressing it when he gets home.
Now seriously?? What's a mom to do?
What I wanted to say when he got home was
'Atta boy for not kicking back, kicking is for suckers, a good punch in the face otta show teach him!'
Of course, that's NOT what I said, but I have to admit, it was DEFINITELY  a struggle to find the right words / consequence, for this one !!
