E-mailed the teacher

I thought you all might want to read the email that I sent the teacher on Friday.  It just reminded me that we all need to shift the way we see the world sometimes.  So here it is:

” Dear Ms. M,

Just a quick note to let you know we all dropped the ball last night… I didn’t read K’s agenda until this morning and when I saw the terrain homework there was just know way I could make the Healey magic happen and produce the desired results on time – STRIKE ONE.  Now I see that the agenda is sitting by the phone and it didn’t even make it into his backpack in order for him to record his school notes for today – STRIKE TWO.  Oh and K does not have his proper suit for swimming because… well… does it even matter why at this point… STRIKE THREE.

BUT… he is at school, he had a great breakfast, we all played cards as a family last night, my cavity has been filled and I am carefully sipping my coffee through an adequate amount of dental freezing… So all and all I would say the morning was a success.  I guess its all in how you look at it.

Anyways, we will work on the terrain homework over the weekend and I sure hope K isn’t feeling too discombobulated.


PS I put the granola bar recipe and some samples in his bag for you.  Sorry in advance for the inapproprate stationary. ” (See pic)
