Thank you. I had it booked for a May trip in 2009 that we ended up having to cancel.

So, I followed your advice and went down to the school this morning. Apparently, I got blown off because the principal has some big meeting today that she was preparing for. She had forwarded the matter to the teacher and trusted it would be handled. She will not be at the school today at all.

The assistant principal offered to call the principal of the Intermediate school over (it's right next door) to speak with me and the kids today but I declined. I'd rather our principal handle it as she knows and adores my DS and knows the other kid's history too (he has been suspended for violence before)

I did pull out our school's Code of Conduct and it does say acts of violence will result in an automatic suspension with possible expulsion. I will accept no less with this kid. I also think the teacher needs her head examined. She's retiring this year so I think her give a darn is broken.

Anyway, I'll keep you updated as I get more info. Oh, quick question. Does anybody think I should have the other school's principal called in? Does it look like I don't care if I wait one more day to get results? If so, I'll go back up there this afternoon.
Personally, unless they were about to start going to the other school, I wouldn't bring the other principal into it yet. Are they in the same classes, where they could move this other child out of them and put him in different classes, lunch periods, or recesses so they are not around your child as much. If it's possible, it would be good to have any teachers that have been present any time it happened to be at the meeting.

When the boys had to have their physicals to play football this year, I put that the youngest had petite mal seizures and mild ASD. I knew something was wrong when they doctor was asking me just how small the hole was. I was like huh? What do you mean hole. She was like, "well you put he has mild ASD". Me, "umm yeah, mild Autism Spectrum Disorder." My mild is goo right now, so I can't remember what she thought it was, but it was something to do with having a hole in your heart.

Oh, I was the one that explained in detail what a stuffed pizza was. The DH was just standing next to me. The guy really ticked me off that he acted like I was crazy. All they had was deep dish. If I wanted deep dish, I could call up Pizza Hut and get one for $10.

They tried to put an IV in his wrist (I think) and missed and it bled a lot. I almost passed out. They seriously asked me to leave.

I have a feeling that these boards are going to be my go-to procrastination tool for the next two weeks. Get ready. :-)
I can try if you want. Maybe if I bride them with a home-made lasagna and my uber yummy orange cookies.

I do, but it's for a double knitted scarf, which might not make any sense to anyone but me. It'll take me a few minutes to adjust it for regular knitting. I'll PM you tomorrow when I get a chance to get it done.

Have a good afternoon/evening ladies!
I'm sure you'll have a great time.

For the Michael, my mom always wanted a son named Michael. My older (and only brother) is named after my dad, then my parent's had me. My mom was sure she was a boy after me, but then she had my sister. They stopped at 3. I chose Michael for his middle name b/c of my mom, which is why I call him John Michael most of the time. When I told her why that was his middle name she was like, "well it does no good to name him that. It's his middle name, no one will ever use it." So, I use it.

Thank you, I truly love doing it. The next one I make is going to be in the colors of the MH scarf. It will be a striped hat.

Thank you. I loved that color. John Michael picked it out for me to make him a scarf. It is soft yarn. I won't use anything that isn't. I have some that is a multi-color yarn that I love the colors, but I refuse to use it. It's a lot more coarse that the soft yarn and after a while it bugs my fingers.

There was more hurting (nipple twisting????) and threats today. My poor boy came off the bus in tears saying he would never tell again because it only makes things worse. I of course told him he absolutely did the right thing by telling and that the ONLY way to make it stop is to tell each.and.every.time.

I called the school as soon as I got in from the bus stop but nobody answered so I left a message. I promised my little guy that I will not give up until this kid stops or gets kicked out and I mean it.

If the principal doesn't do the right thing tomorrow I guess the next step is the superintendent.

I'm drinking wine tonight. A rarity for me when I'm not on vacay. I have to admit, it's helping calm my anger. Maybe I'll have two.

wookie - The principal next door is for 5th and 6th grade and DS8 is only in 2nd so he won't be over there for a few years. I still feel like a piece of poop for waiting though.

Jenny - How's your DD feeling? I hope she's not too sore.

Jungle Cruiser - more good thoughts for tomorrow

I hope you are keeping written records of all of this. Not just of what the other child did but who you talked to at the school. Talk to the principal in the morning. When my DD was in high school a boy hurt her while they were both in the classroom and I talked to the assistant principal about what happened ... hinting that if it ever happened again I would hold the school responsible since they knew about the situation. Now I will say the school took my complaint very seriously. They had a meeting with the boy and his parents. The parents were great and NOT happy about what their son did. So everything worked out. So go in there .... be calm but firm.

Thank you so much for your advice. I am keeping detailed notes on everything. I have always liked and respected the school's administration so I have hope that the issue will be resolved tomorrow.

I'm sorry your DD experienced that in HS

Your being way to hard on yourself. I think you are doing a perfect job with the situation. Just stay calm, and keep talking until someone does something about it.

Okay....nipple twisting??? This is freaking ridiculous. How did the bully know your son had told you? Stick to your guns, I don't know how you can contain yourself but hang in there and give them heck tomorrow.

DD4 just woke up crying saying her chin was really hurting. To be expected I guess. We gave her some Tylenol and she's gone back to sleep.

Thanks everyone for caring, you are a special group of ladies.

Trying to catch up here...

jen Poor DD!!! That must have been horrifying to watch!
I'm glad it wasn't worse. I hope she is feeling better soon and heals quickly!

ihtm I hope the admin takes you seriously and does something about this kid. I feel so bad for your son, I am glad he's telling you what's going on though.

sarah good luck today. Hope you are feeling better soon!!

jeanette YC CL
I haven't heard back about my raise yet (our director actually went home early yesterday with that vomiting bug I had last week...not pretty! ) But, depending on what he comes back with, I may be YC CL too!

I'm up bright and early...had my annual physical yesterday and have to go and get my bloodwork today, so I'm gonna do it early, before work and get it over with. I hate needles and the last time bloodwork was ordered I avoided it for 6 months! I'll be a good girl this time and go get it done and over with.

I hope the procedure and recovery are quick and easy

Jenny - Wanted to mention since you asked, on Wednesday the teacher had a talk with the other kid. She presumably told him that DS told on him. Great move letting the kid know that he has been told on, but do nothing to discipline him.
