And I have waited and It is now Friday! No more early mornings and school/nursery runs, missing breakfast and losing the day away for the next couple of days…
So this morning I got them both to nursery and school on time surprisingly after it took me some time to sew the inner thigh splits of my jeans… (This happens when you have curvy thighs that rub till the material weakens and forms gaping holes and since I walk everywhere it seems to happen more and more often I seriously don’t have any jeans left because of it) … I stayed at the school for assembly and as usual some other parents who are sat in front of me are nattering away while the rest of us were trying to listen to the assembly… Some people are so rude!
I was happy that they put out biscuits to chomp on with our tea/coffee especially since I was so hungry from missing breakfast… Bit disappointed that my Son didn’t get a certificate or sticker or whatever about being the most improved with the shanghais way of maths but I guess there was so many other students who hadn’t been up for a while deserved to go up this time but still…
And Oh! I think I know why my son had been going a bit strange lately… There is these two new Italian students in his class a boy and a girl and from what my son had been telling me I was liking them less and less and then the last couple of days since he has been talking more again he told me what’s been going on…
The Italian boy ‘F’ had tripped my sons best friend ‘T’ up and sat on him and put his hands round his throat so he couldn’t get up, my son tried to pull him off but then the Italian girl ‘B’ who was watching went and told a teacher that my son started to rag ‘F’ about and tried to strangle him (Which is a horrendous lie! He would never do that.) The teacher took both of the Italian students’ words on it since ‘T’ wouldn’t say what happened. (Maybe too shaken up?)
Their excuse was that ‘F’ was just trying to give ‘T’ a hug when my son had come up and just started to pull him about and strangle him for no reason and that’s why ‘B’ had ran to get help…. Load of crap… Since then the two of them have been saying things to my son in their own Italian language – whether it’s insults or silly things to psych him out I don’t know. But that’s not on and then ‘B’ had the nerve to walk past us with her own mum and say “hello” to my son all innocently but gave him a spiteful look…. I’ve decided. She’s the devil.
I questioned him if things are okay now but he told me she had been coming up to him and saying all sorts of unnecessary comments about him which is just mean, spiteful, nasty and I want to smack some manners into the little so and so… She told him his brand new coat I bought him for Christmas was ugly and looked horrible on him. She told him in dance club she doesn’t know why he is there when he isn’t good and he just shouldn’t come anymore. And today she told him that he’s not good in ‘North’ (the house he is in for points in his school) and that he should just stop bothering coming to school and even trying to win points.
I mean!?!?!? They are 8 years old and she is being a right little bully who pretends she is all cute and innocent and nice but is like this to my boy… Instead of telling the teachers he just tells her off and thankfully tells me when he sees me. But I don’t know why he doesn’t tell the teachers the things she has been saying… I asked him why he hasn’t and even he tells me he doesn’t know… It might be because the teachers didn’t believe him the first time so why would they about these times?
I know one thing – I will be having words with his teacher and then the head because this is definitely bullying and the fact that he went a week of having all the signs and I didn’t even realise makes me feel so bad… I have been bullied at school and then at home and no one really cared or understood but I didn’t know this had been going on with my son til he told me once I told him to start talking to me… There was no reason for him to show signs of a slight depression all of a sudden I just thought he was going through a transitional phase from kid to tween ya know?
So I am hoping if I am patient with as much as I can be Karma will do it’s thing and luck will come our way 🙂
Moving on… Today I managed to get a full refund from my recent stay at a hotel due to not enjoying my stay or sleeping well there. So yay!
I have noticed that when I am on the school run route I get all these ideas and sayings and thoughts that would be perfect to write on here for my future posts but it all drifts away when I finally get home and I am left staring at a blank post page and nothing comes to mind… Where have all my brilliant thoughts gone? I really need to get a voice recorder or something so that I can talk to myself and get all of it out and recorder for me to go through again and be able to put them in a post…. My phone doesn’t have one – It’s not smart ha.
Well that’s it for this one I think… Nothing else is coming to mind…
Thanks for reading 🙂
