The Rock of FAIL [video]
SO. There’s this rock at my kids’ school.
This is not the rock. But it’s a rock, so…
The rock at school is the PERFECT size for climbing, sliding… and also the PERFECT size for getting in trouble. You see… this climbing rock/slide rock is placed teasingly in the welcome/front/pick-up area of the school. And if a kid climbs on the rock, the kid gets in trouble as well as the parent.
Smell that? That’s the smell of FAIL.
If you like the smell – here’s the recipe!
crazed, after-school children
parents who think the rock is a great climbing option
school that sees rock as climbing safety hazard
stink eye or finger wag or a talking-to DAILY from the Keepers of The Rock
Yes. My equation has two =’s. You know I am not mathy…
So… one day last spring I made a video. I have finally gotten the nerve to show it.
Hope I don’t get a detention. Ya know… something else happened last year… which has me feeling a little less care-y, so… whatever. I’M THE MOM. Don’t mess.
I could actually go on a little rant about how it sucks *insert dirty, inappropriate analogy about donkeys here* to be reprimanded by a teacher when one is a parent. And this rock and my relationship with it highlights the issue I have with public schools/institutions/government-at-large thinking every parent is an idiot and is unable to parent. But that is another issue. Oh golly, I got riled-up.
But I will hold my tongue and will leave those select sentences above bolded because that felt good.
*Note: I understand the rock vs. safety issue.
*Note: Why is the rock there if it is a safety concern? Why is there even a playground???
I’m getting riled again.
P.S. I am not really as sweet as I seem.
P.P.S. Totally not.
Peace and Sparkles, and a little bit of Mama Bear…
