We've had a few trouble spots here and there. Some things this Momma is probably going to just have to get over. His biggest issue has been lunch. The first day all he ate was his carrot sticks, but heck I'm not going to complain at least he ate them. The second day he left his lunchbox at school. The third day I sent him with a packed lunch in a gallon ziploc along with the request that he retrieve the lunchbox. When he got home from school I inspected his backpack, and discovered his entire school lunch untouched. My first though was that he had eaten nothing, but turned out he said he just bought hot lunch.
Now, things are different from when I was in school and we had paper lunch tickets that the cashier had to punch. Now, each kid has an online account, and parents put money into the account through an website. Each kid basically, gets their own little lunch credit card. Are you seeing where this is going?
When I asked him about his untouched lunch he told me he just gave the lady his card, and he had hot lunch instead. Zach and I laughed that our 5 year old is putting us into debt. Sure enough after school that day I got a call from the school saying our account is -1.85 and to please add funds. So we have had long talks about how he needs to eat his lunch, and how he has to eat what his mother sends him.
My only other issue is really having no idea what he's doing all day. It is driving me up the wall. I don't want to be that parent, but I'd like to have some sort of idea. Getting Jack to tell me what he did is like pulling teeth. I get it out of him in drips and dribbles throughout the evening. I fire questions at him like was PE after you ate lunch? Just so I can try to piece together what time he does things. I'm giving it another week, and then I am going to be that parent e-mailing the teacher for just a simple idea of how their day goes.
