You know how I told you last week that Little Jason was so excited to have the same preschool teachers as last year? Yeah, well, that’s interesting. I took him the second week and dropped him off. He was equally excited. I was merrily doing my shopping when the phone rang. “Oh no, I hope nothing happened to my boy!” I thought when I saw it was his preschool. Anxiously I answered the phone.
“Hello Mrs. Irish? Yes, I was wondering… There is a slight discrepancy as to how old Little Jason is. You see on his application it says he was born in 2009, but on the parent info you just turned in to us today you wrote 2008.” The school administrator waited for my reply.
“Uh… (I’m a mother of five kids for crying out loud!) let’s see… It’s 2008. Definitely 2008,” I finally got out.
“Okay, well, I just wanted to let you know that since you had 2009 on his application we had him in the two-year-old room so we’ll need to move him.”
I laughed and laughed. I couldn’t help it! I choked out an apology between bursts of laughter. I know they think I’m a total basket case there. I suppose I am. A sane mom would have probably noticed that all the other kids in his class were about a foot shorter! So, he’ll have a new teacher this year after all. I hope it’s as great a match for him as his teachers from last year.
I think this face must be a reflection of what he thinks of his mother! I’d have to agree with him on this account!

HaHa. Leave it to Esther 🙂
That is so funny!!! Hope he likes his new teacher! 🙂
Just last week at the doctors office I said that my daughter was five. She was quite upset with me, because she is definately six! Many, many times I have said the kids were older or younger. Oh well, at least I don’t call them the wrong name. Yeah, I do that too! My poor kids. Now, I understand why my grandpa called his three daughters sis and the 10 boys were called George. He called all the grandkids, George too! There are over 120 of us in our immediate family. I guess that is a lot of names to remember. 🙂
Oh, Esther, definitely something I would do. I have a very hard time remembering any kind of numbers. I’m so glad you can laugh. I too think it was hilarious.
Bahahahahaha…now THAT’S funny!! Very cute story! I sure hope he likes his new teacher just as much! 😉

I get embarrassed when I have to pick up a family member’s prescription and I’m asked when is his/her birthday? And I can’t remember.

LOL. So funny. I hope your little guy wasn’t too heartbroken. You not alone in your mistake.
Lol! I can see it happening when you have 5 kids 🙂 I haven’t done it on school paperwork, but have given the wrong child’s birthday by accident at the doctor’s office.
LOL – I love his face! I only have 2 and I find myself pausing and having to really think about birthdays sometimes… 🙂
