So…I GOT THE PHONE CALL TODAY! They called my cell, apparently at 5:31 and left a voicemail. It ended with Michael saying, “and everyone please…think spring”. WHAT A TOOL. He reminds me of my HS principal. Namely, the day he got on the intercom to say, “let me tell you all what’s going on right now: It’s raining”. Unfortunately, I had my cell phone off (my phone is pretty much ALWAYS off), so I missed Michael AND the ever diligent/amazing Claudia calling to say those dreaded words: TWO HOUR DELAY. So let me wrap my head around this: snow day Monday, whole day Tuesday, two hour delay on Wednesday, and then half days Thursday and Friday for parent/teacher conferences? Why did we even come in this week? AGAIN I didn’t get to start my new routine. I went to sit with AB in Sue’s room from 10:54 ‘til 11:08. She was much warmer to me today; rubbing my arm and joking a little. She doesn’t hate me, yay! AB was good; gave him his check-list book.
Wish there was more to report. A had a pretty big tantrum; they’ve been a lot more severe lately. Conversely, D has been pretty much comatose all week; quiet, unresponsive, unwilling to leave the back table; eerie. He had a few flare-ups this afternoon, cursing/splashing at A at recess and then storming inside, and then during Jerry’s group, trying to control and yelling at everyone (especially E) for not going with his idea immediately/not understanding his non-explained plan. Got a little heated, but eventually, we did it! We got the toxic waste over to the bucket and poured it out!
Bonus, today when I went to consult with Grace today, she'd brought her daughter in for the 45 minutes of school before lunch, and I finally got to meet the amazing and talented Rose! Ohhhhhhhhhhh my G-d she's amazing. She's small and adorable and oh yeah, she can read and decode and comprehend on a 2nd grade level. She's 3 years old. Incredible. She's a little book worm; when she started to act up today, Grace sat her down in a chair and said, "if mommy has to count to three, you're going to bed tonight without any books!". THAT was the punishment. Wow.
