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.
