Had a bad morning. My DS told me yesterday that he could take his teddy bear to school today. I asked him why, he said his teacher said so. I looked in his folder, no note from teacher. So I told him that he didn't need to. They're not supposed to take toys, etc. to school so I didn't want him to get in trouble. Well this morning I saw a post on FB about teddy bear day from another mama. Granted, her child goes to a different school but is also in Pre-K. It made me SO upset. I cried.. my poor little buddy Mama didn't believe him and I felt so bad. I work 20 mins away from his school so it's not like I had enough time to go back home and take it to him and come back to work.
I typed his teacher a note asking to please let me know when they are able to take toys, snacks, etc.. so he can participate. He's told me a few things before and you know.. kids will be kids and they will say a lot of stuff that may not be true. I hope the note didn't come off mean, I think I was very nice about it, I told her I would appreciate a note so that my son can participate in every activity. I know he would've loved to take his bear he got from his aunt this Christmas.
Thinking about it now, is kind of funny.. not that he didn't take it but that I got so upset that I cried over it. It just made me feel like an awful mother. So tonight I am buying him a happy meal for dinner. We never eat fast food during the week for dinner so it will be a little treat. Giving my baby lots of cuddles tonight for sure.
