~Being the Mother of a boy, last from son up...to son down~

and yes I am yelling that and I hope they heard me all the way over to Kyle's High School!!!!

{{sticking out tough and gives a big fat rasberry too}}

Let me start at the beginning and give you the entire story from the start. This afternoon, well right now actually, Kyle has a Dr. appt. Chris is off today so he was going to pick Kyle up early from school and take him to the appt. so I wouldn't have to leave work to do it(thanks babe!)

Anyway, this morning I gave him the run down on everything.

Appointment time-CHECK
Things to ask the Dr.-CHECK
Make sure they put the diagnosis on the perscription-CHECK
Flexable spending card to pay-CHECK

I thought I had covered everything, or so I thought! Chris asked me if I needed to send a note to school that Kyle would be leaving early for a Dr. appt. I said 'no" and didn't think anything else about until I got a call from Chris about 30 mins ago.

Chris "hey, do have an appt card that you can fax to the school?"

Me "no, I made the appt over the phone,

Chris " cause they won't let me have Kyle until they have something in writing to verify the appt."


At that point, I could feel my face getting hot and my blood pressure rising. You mean to tell me that I can't get MY child out of school early without an appointment card! I carried that boy for 9 monthes...I went through 28 hours of labor.....THAT IS MY CHILD and I don't care if you need a note from the Pope, you better give me my kid!

I swear it's a dag gone good thing his Daddy is more patient than me and was the one picking him today cause this Momma would be locked up behind bars right now for skipping my pretty tail down that hall and yanking MY child out of Spanish class!

Ummm so you have to prove you have a valid reason? I would be asking the school to prove he would be missing valid education while away from class.

What kind of school does he attend? Nevermind! :-) Just like a lot of other systems, the honest people are the ones always penalized. Those who are dishonest would never be questioned but like you said, why in the heck does it matter?!?!

Oh yeah, I would have been mad, too!!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Really? That is nuts. Like you said, he is YOUR child, if you want to take him out, it is your business. Honestly.

That is absurd! I'm with you... give me MY child!!

Mary said...

That's crazy! I mean his dad is right there saying it's ok to take him out. So did he make it to the appointment?? :)

Jenna said...

wow that's ridiculous. I can see them wanting to see id to make sure you're the parent but proof of why you are getting him out of school should be none of their business!
