Conner is being a teenager lately. It is extremely irritating. Is anyone interested in adopting him for the next four years and then returning him? Any takers??
He stole some cookies at lunch from the cafeteria a couple of days ago. WHY he did that when he could have just bought the cookies with the money in his lunch account I STILL don’t understand. My theory: He is
an idiot a teenage boy. Apparently, it was a dare. We had a long discussion about the whole thing and about having to learn to draw your own lines about morality, etc. And, as part of his punishment, he is no longer allowed to purchase lunch from the cafeteria for the rest of the year. He has to bring his own lunch. Well, today, he texted me from school, “Can I buy a lunch? I forgot mine.” Instead of texting him back, I called. I said, “I distinctly remember reminding you TWICE to bring your lunch–once when I woke you up and once when you were walking out the door. When I left, I saw your lunch bag thrown on the floor and I didn’t see anything packed and left anywhere… .” I was going to continue, and I was CONSIDERING letting him get just a sandwich, but then the line was dead. That little shit hung up on me. I called back and no answer. I’m currently brainstorming all of the ways I can make his life miserable when he gets home. I miss when I was just teaching teenagers–it didn’t matter how awful they might be at any given moment…they ultimately weren’t MINE to have to deal with. UGH. UGH. UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
