Lucas got report cards this week. Straight A's again...we told him if he got them for the entire year then he could pick what prize he wanted so the other night at the dinner table I asked him what he was thinking about if he were to get them on his last report card. He went from a book to a Wii....oh my we could be in trouble! Talk about two opposite ends of the spectrum...of course I probablly didn't help matters much when I sarcastically said "you will have gotten straight A's for the entire year and you can have anything you want and you pick a book?" Maybe I should of just kept my mouth shut.
He had been riding the bus this year..his grandmother takes him to school in the mornings and then he rides the bus home. He came home the other day and said that some 5th grader was teasing him that the watch Lucas was wearing was stolen. He pulled out a cell phone and told Lucas that he was going to call the cops on him because he had stolen the watch. Lucas told him that he didn't steal it but that his grandmother had given it to him for his birthday but the kid kept saying that he had stolen it and apparently pretended to call 911. Lucas came home and told me about it...he really didn't seem upset about it but it was enough for me to take him off the bus. Jacob starts kindergarten next year and I wasn't going to let him ride the bus anyway so I would have been picking them up anyways so I figured I'd go ahead and start now. What is it with some kids nowadays..why do they behave like they don't have anything in between their ears and why do they pick younger children to pick on? I don't get it! Aggravates me to no end.
