Another Typical Day......until the bus came
I thought today was a typical laid back one. Went to the post office (they're on the way Desert Hen!) Read some, played with Wy and Simi. I even got to watch Chuck while Wy was napping. Not much in the way of excitement. Until Dawson came home. Now his normal routine is to yell "Hey Mom" when he comes in the door. Today he was real quiet. I was sitting here at the computer wondering what I could post about when I turned around and he had a friend with him from school. A young girl from his class who had not been given permission to come home with him. Now as you moms know, the first thing to go through my mind is "Holy cow, her mom's gotta be freaking out." I asked her for her phone number, "I don't know it." hmm, lie. "What's the name listed in the phone book?" Can't find it, damn. I know! Call the school. Bingo! They told me her mom was looking for her and could I bring her back to the school? YES! She tried to tell us that she got on the wrong bus, but we know different. She got one heck of a talking to by the school secretary, and her mom grounded her til the end of the school year. Come to find out there are some custody issues with her "real" mom, and they thought she had taken her. I can only imagine what they were going through for the last hour. I don't think, at least by the way she was acting, that she really cared about all the trouble she caused everyone. Kind of makes me sad and mad at the same time. You feel sorry for the trouble she has at home but at the same time ticked off that she seems to just want to cause trouble. She had to know what was going to happen. I can only say she was lucky to pick Dawson to come home with, some people aren't as honest and forthright with chance opportunity. You know what I mean? May the rest of my day be uneventful, like it started. Sweet dreams everyone.
