Yesterday, I was 5 minutes late picking Trin up from Kindergarten. She is waiting in the office with a few other kids who were also waiting for their
She is not sitting with the other children though. She is in the staff lounge, "yukin' it up" with the Vice Principal, and one of the third grade teachers. They are laughing. They seem amused.
Instantly, I'm nervous.
I wait for a moment, they glance up at me... and then, sure enough, it happens...
I got the dreaded "wink and smile"
Now, as all you moms know, the "wink and smile" usually means that your sweet child has most likely shared one of your most private and embarassing moments of motherhood.
Trinity see's me, quickly gathers her things, says goodbye to her new "friends"...
"That's quite the little girl you have there" says Mr. Vice Principal guy.
I turn and smile. It's not a real smile, mind you... it's the "oh my gawd what did she say?? " kind of smile.
"Oh yeah, she keeps me laughing". I reply.
Yup, right there. There it is. "I'll bet"??? I don't even want to know. START THE CAR!!!
Fast forward ~ driving home:
"So...How was your day?"
"It was just great!"
"Really, what did you do?" (Awww, that's nice. She had a good day.)
"I kissed Sam"
"You did hey?" (SAM??? Again with SAM??? Who the hell is this kid? )
"Ya, he liked it. Then, you know, he kinda like ~ well, he kissed me back"
"Uh huh. I see. Well, who doesn't like kisses hey?" (Let's see how much he likes it when I rip his little lips off and staple them to his Optimus Prime backpack)
"And then, ya know what??? He kissed Maddie too "
"Oh, really." (This kid gets around. Again... who the HELL IS SAM??? Is he that little red-headed kid?... I bet he's the little red-headed kid!!! )
