funny thing

January 21st, 2016 at 10:24 pm

Our neighbors that we aren't on best terms with are moving in June. How relaxing now. Now we don't have to avoid them as much. Bonus if we choose to rent longer we won't have to worry about the two kids being in class together next year. I know I said we'd rent but I hated the idea of my kiddo in class again with our neighbor's kid. This way we are set to not ride the bus or see them again after June. Say la vie! Bye bye to trouble.

In case I forgot to mention over the holidays my neighbor accused me of making her life difficult by reporting the incident between our children. She felt I should have come to talk to her about her son hitting my daughter on the bus instead of dealing with the school and transportation department. She was forced to do a ton of paperwork because of my reporting the issue. I don't know the repercussions but she said that "kids will be kids" and I shouldn't have overreacted. I should have come to let her deal with it.

Truth is that I reacted to seeing a kid hit my kid through the window of the bus. I didn't stop to think I should talk to his mom. I just went and talked to my kid and the school. Second I probably would have reported it anyway after talking with her since this was the second incident with her child. She obviously hadn't dealt with her child after the prior incident of drawing on my child's face. And no I did not tell her that, but I just told her I was sorry that she had a lot of trouble with the school and bus. But that I had done what I felt was in my child's best interest. I explained I was just following the rules and I understand that they are children.

Truth is that moving classrooms has been great for my kid. She mentioned when we said they were moving "great that neighbor S is moving. He's mean on the playground and I avoid him as much as possible." Say la vie.

    You did the right thing! Honestly, what is it with these parents now...Is the new parenting trend called "unparenting?" LOlSmile Seriously, I'm happy for you on both levels, I've had both bad neighbors and had to have dealt with a bad parent, it's awful. Hooray for them going away! May life continue to look after you!

    That is good taht those neighbors are moving. And, you did the right thing in going to the school authorities about what happened with your daughter. If you had just talked to this woman about her son, she probably wouldn"t have corrected her son. I imagine that there might be another child that her son has bothered. She should have apologized to you, and your daughter,and had her son apologize. how would she like it if someone wrote on her face. I agree taht she is ducking her parental responsibilities. Ge glad that they are moving, and don"t feel guilty. She should be embarrassed. My two cents..
