Last week at school another child decked my dear, sweet, completely innocent child (insert sarcasm here!). Actually, he decked her twice. I wasn't in the room and therefor didn't see it, but Iris was pretty upset about it and apparently it warranted a special mention of the other child at our school meeting, to really stay on top of that child. Today I walked in the climibing room where we have all these slides and rocking horses and stuff, of course the two moms who were supposed to be watching the kids were just yakking away in the corner, and I hear Iris start screaming. She was under a slide with another child. She was totally hysterical and after a little comforting she said that the other boy bit her. That boy's mom said they had had a altercation the week before, as well. I haven't really been to school with her in a long while (Matt was taking her) and I never heard of anything else like this, but now I wonder if I'm just not getting told. Each week that I've been back this has happened now! I'm not saying that things don't happen in a room full of small children, but it really makes me mad when the other parents aren't watching the kids. I used to walk in to the climbing room last year, as well, and find Iris about to break her neck while the moms were in the corner exchanging casserole recipes or some shit. It made me really, really mad. I wish we had a better group of parents this year, but so far I'm not impressed with their ability to actually keep their eyes on children. Okay, I might be a little mad because Iris has, so far, gotten hurt every time I've been at school with her!
I'm super excited I'm going to get my hair cut tonight. Last time I got it cut it wasn't totally how I wanted it and now it's growing out a little shaggy, so I'm going to have it fixed. That's one fun thing about shorter hair, you get to go to the salon a bunch! Woo Hoo!
