This morning on Bob and Sheri they were discussing the arrest of the 100 mobsters in New Jersey and New York. It then lead to mob names.
Anthony "Gaspipe" Casso
Jimmy "The Weasel" Fratianno
Johnny "The Hook" Regatti
Vincent "The Chin" Gigante
Frank "The Hammer" Jones (for you Frank)
Tony "The Tiger" Rosario
These names are earned, and it's always fun to hear how they get the not so loving label.
I arrive with my boys to school today and am quickly instructed by Maverick's kinder teacher to report to Mrs. Parsons (the director) right away, and I'm told to take Maverick with me.
I am informed he and a friend have been saying very mean things to some of the younger, preschool children. It has upset one child so much that he doesn't want to stay for extended day anymore for fear of a run in with my five year old. Basically, my son is bullying, and it has to stop.
I had no idea! I know he's wild and unruly, but truly I did not know he was terrorizing three year olds.
Once again, I am Mother of the Year.
I'm in the director's room hearing what she is saying and thinking, "Wow. I am a mother of four. I am a teacher. I own a child care center/preschool...Yuma's Best 2010 actually. AND I serve on the board with Mrs. Parsons. What am I doing wrong here?"
On paper I look like I know what I'm doing, but I just don't. I remember the saying, "Babies should come with a manual." I never thought I needed a manual UNTIL TODAY. In fact, I always thought that saying was kind of dumb.
I didn't even know how to respond to Mrs. Parsons or what to say to Maverick during the meeting. I just sat there like a buffoon. I went to my car and cried like a baby myself. I cried to Bobby. I cried to my friend,Carrie, and then I moved on to crying to Savana. I can't remember the last time I cried (other than funerals, movies, shows, and commercials).
Mafia name given: Sabra "The Exemplar" Lemmon. So named because I am a constant example...typically of what not to do.
Buddy "The Bully" Lemmon
