Obviously, I am so happy my children love their teachers. What parent doesn’t want their kids to gush over the learning and fun and classroom which their school teacher provides even if my daughter mixes up “mom” and “Mrs. X” a few more times than the person who let her live in her uterus for over nine months would expect?
Not this parent. I’m good with two moms if she’s happy at school.
Well… until her teachers is absent. Not only do my kids like their routines, I get subsitute reports that go a little something (exactly like) this:
Me: “How was your day today?”
Me: “Why? What happened?”
N: “We had a substitute teacher, and he did everything wrong.”
Me: “Everything wrong?”
N: “Yeah, he didn’t do like Mrs. X.”
Me: “So it was wrong.”
And a month later:
Me: “What did you learn today in school?”
N: “I didn’t learn ANYTHING.”
Me: “You learned nothing?”
N: “We had a substitute. She didn’t know anything so I learned nothing.”
Now, I don’t know whether to follow up with the school to get the low-down on these subs or to just feel sorry for anyone who tries to take my kids’ teachers place.
