Ugh! Gifted Class!

This morning I called the school, as per usual, about the gifted class and Starling.  Well, you won’t even believe what they said!  The secretary lady (I don’t know her name, why would I?) said, “If I put her in the God damned class will you stop calling me?”  Of course I said yes!  I was so thrilled that they had finally recognized which one of my lil’ angles belongs in that class.  I was walking on a cloud all day.  That would show those other moms.

Then Starling got home and told me that they had pulled her from her homeroom to go to the “nerd cave” with Merlin and all of his weird friends.  She was very upset.  I told her that I would call the school and ask to have Merlin removed from the class since he really doesn’t need it anyway.  But she was adamant that Merlin wasn’t even close to the worst of them.  That surprised me!

She finally stopped crying when I gave her a $20 bill.

I don’t want my baby girl unhappy, so I called the school right back and told them that Starling does not want to be in the gifted class with the nerds.  The secretary lady put me on hold and I swear I could hear her laughing in the background for about ten minutes while I just waited.  I gave her a piece of my mind when she picked the phone back up, but she put the phone back down and started laughing again.  So rude!  I finally hung up on her.  That will show her.

I ended up putting the big kids to bed a little bit early because I was so exhausted but I let Hummus play in the bathtub for a couple of hours while I had my book group (or should I say wine group, lol) over.  I had actually forgotten he was there and Mariel was very surprised when she heard splashing from behind the shower curtain, lol.

Such a good baby.

Such a good baby.

    Oh Honey! That school is messing with you! Do you have any other options for your precious babies? I am not sure if you have them in public school, but maybe look into private schools? Public schools can be SO UNFAIR and arbitrary in how they treat people and you know, you just NEVER KNOW who your children will be sitting next to! I mean they let just ANYONE in and clearly they are using that gifted class to just JERK AROUND the parents. Have you talked to the principal? UGH! Do you have any good private schools around where you are? I am sure your DH would feel better knowing they were getting the respect and attention they deserve & the tuition would be totally worth it. You could take money out of retirement if you need to, after all, investing in Starling’s education will be an investment in your grandchildren’s future! They need an EDUCATED mommy to stay at home & home school them!

    As for that visis curr beefeater, god! I would have a SPECIAL TREAT for him if you know what I mean!! I hear dogs can’t eat chocolate so I might have an OOPSIE!

      Obviously I have considered sending Starling to a private school, but Röbert thinks she is fine in public school. Either way, Starling will grow up to be a genius, I just know it!

      I do not want to buy Beefeater a special treat! He is not a nice dog!

    You are so BLESSED! Obviously God was looking out for your angles that night. Hummus could have drowned! I hope YOU are okay. That must have been scary for you.

    I think it is so great how you advocate for Starling. She will not grow up entitled at all. If you don’t stand up for her, who will? Am I right?

      Hummus drown? I think you must have misunderstood. He was in a BATHTUB! Not a pool. He was fine. He likes to play in the bathtub alone all of the time.

      Starling is a wonderful lil’ girl. I am proud to be her mommy. She is the second best speller in her class!

    I can remember when I was a child, when I would get something that I wanted, and it would make me happy. Now when I get something that I want (for my kids) it has the potential for making me miserable. Have you ever considered sending Starling to an all-girls school? It sounds like she would really excel in a single-sex environment. Educationally, I mean.

    Starling does not need an all-girl’s school to thrive! She does just fine in a coeducational school. I think some of the other children in her class with jealous mother’s might need to move on though!

      Well we’re just trying to help, no need to get all snippy!! Clearly if you really cared about her education you would put her in a school with the right kind of kids, but sure, yeah, go ahead and keep her in public school where anyone can attend and they all have lice! ENJOY YOUR DAY.

        Wow! I’m certainly NOT snippy, missy. Believe me, we moved to a very exclusive neighborhood with excellent public schools so my children would not have to mix with riff raff. The kind of lice my children got was a very rare breed, and certainly not the sort that common children get. You enjoy your day minding your own beeswax now, please.

    I quit my book club because the other girls only wanted to read depressing books where none of the characters were likeable at all! I seek out positive people that make me feel good about myself. Also, the wine drinking got out of hand. You don’t need alcohol to be happy. I prefer to get high on life.

      My book club always picks very high minded books about current events or history, not common novels. We were all valedictorians etc., much smarter than the women in the other book clubs around town. We also drink expensive wine at our meetings, not boxes of cheap rotgut like you probably buy, because we have very sophisticated palates. My friends are also positive people, so stop bragging. We spend a lot of time helping out less fortunate moms by critiquing them.
