The antidote.

The problem?


Frank refused to come in from recess when his teacher blew the whistle, yelled across the playground at the TOP of her lungs, and then ran and hid behind a narrow tree when said teacher marched across the playground to retrieve him. (Unfortunately for FRANK, the principal was standing about five feet from said tree. She was incredibly happy to help.)



He repeated this same offense 1.5 hours later when the class went outside at the end of the day. I retrieved him just in time to get him onto his bus.




Those other hours between said recesses were peppered with many "tugs-of-war" today.






This was the only viable solution.





Lemon Drop. x2.

Excellent solution!

My 8th grader told me he wasn't going to get out of the car tomorrow morning when I drop him off at school.
He's so over it all ready.

I'm going to push his ass out of the car. And then maybe drink one of those Lemon things.

Kids are feeling the pull of summer! They all act squirrelly for the last two weeks. The teachers' patience has run out; they are feeling that pull just like the kids. Maybe you should just put some of that lemonade stuff in a thermos and lock it in your car, just in case of emergency....a Great BIG thermos!

I think Mr. Frank is feeling separation anxiety from you, Ms. Smyth. He knows his time with you is almost over.

He may be defiant on the outside, but I bet if you grabbed him and squeezed the stuffin's out of him, he would melt in your arms.

Take care, Sue

As the mom of a Frank, I just love you. I swear, the only other person in the world that can know what it's like to be a Mom of a Frank, is a TEACHER of a Frank. I'm going to forward this to my son's teacher. She has earned the laughs. And the Lemon Drop. :)

Damn straight.
I remember one night of too many lemon drops. They sure tasted good going down but I had a awful time of it the next day.

Isn't he a bit young for that?

Teacher Mum said...

What are we going to do without these Frank stories over the summer? Is there any chance he'll be back next year? :)

Irish Gumbo said...

For Frank?! Isn't that against the law or something? (grin)

Zephyr said...

Summer is almost here.... take a deep breath and as many lemon drops as you need. :)

GMGKnits said...

Sorry about Frank but the lemon drops sure look tasty. As a mom of an 18 yo "Frank" -- adult beverages for everyone!

Krystal said...

I'll take one and make it a double oh yeah, and keep em coming!

Captain Dumbass said...

Would it be wrong to start the day with one?

Joanna Jenkins said...

Double-fisted drinking-- You deserve it ;-)

Cheers, jj
