45 tardies....I know I shouldn’t care so much
DH and I both know that BM can’t get SD to school on time, but didn’t know just how often this was happening.
DH lets me look at the messages the school leaves on their online system. I was looking around and saw “attendance.” From January to May (when school is basically over), SD had 45 recorded tardies. 45!
DH was out doing yard work at the time but I knew I had to tell him. Later on I did and he was shocked! Now, I know some of you will say he should be keeping up on this himself, etc. And maybe I am just stirring the pot but that’s not my intention. It’s been hard for me to not care about things for SD.
She’s about to start school this week and her or her mother have made no attempt to get back on a schedule. She stays up until 3 or 4am and sleeps until 1 or 2pm. DH is holding an amusement park trip over her head to get her to bed on time. SD seems to care about that, so we’ll see what happens.
Anyway, DH drafted up a text to BM putting the responsibility on her. Haven’t heard anything back yet, but it’ll be interesting to see her lie her way out of this one.
