So this morning, I wake to find this wonderful email from Zayden's teacher
Good evening Amy,
I would like to meet you to discuss about Zayden behavior. In the past days, He seems not to accept any request or directives from me or other adult at school. I just wanted to know if there is any change at home or if you noticed the same.
Please let me know what is more convenient for you schedule an appointment
Really? I mean come ON kid...get with the program. So I emailed her back
Thank you for the email. I am very sorry that Zayden is misbehaving, can you tell me when this started? Was it before or after the break? After a week off with unstructured time, it has been more difficult for him to get back in a routine. This week, he has definitely had a difficult time at home.
We have been having significant changes at home, which may be affecting his behavior to some degree. We are moving at the end of this month so we have been packing and generally disrupting his routine for several weeks now.
Let me check with my husband to see if he can meet next week -- I would be free at 4:15 Monday or Friday, though Monday might be better so we can address the issues with him.
Again, I am sorry he is acting up. Thank you for letting me know.
He has been a bit of a jerk this last week though -- he is refusing to give me hugs or kisses, even this morning I said I love you as I left and his response was I love....DADDY. Thanks kid. Little punk!
Oh and of course this was copied to the director of the preschool.. GGRRRRRR
(and I really don't think it has anythign to do with us moving --least not yet -- as he doesn't even seem phased by this)
