I dropped Jordan off in her room today… And as I walked out, there was a new little girl sitting at the table in the bigger kid room. I was a bit confused about that… And kept walking. I didn’t say anything… But I looked for the director of the school as I ran off to teach a class. She wasn’t there. I was steamed… But maybe I was confused.
So I went back to visit Jordan for a little while in between working out and returning to the newsroom. That’s when I noticed that there really was a new girl. She was standing at the door to the little baby room. I asked what was going on with the parents when one of the teachers said: “We never had her start day in the computer system. It’s just a mess.” Of course that wasn’t a good enough excuse. Jordan cries every time a baby drinks from a bottle and won’t eat big kid food… because the other babies eat from jars. She needs to move into the bigger room so she can have more encouragement to pull up and try to walk. She’s trying harder and harder to do just that.
So I was unhappy. Very unhappy. So I went to the owner of the school since the director is out of town. Apparently this child showed up without anyone knowing she was coming. It’s still not cool that she was placed in that room before Jordan. He said he was certainly going to look into it and get Jordan into the room — and he kind of said next week. The whole thing I thought we were waiting on was the arrival of a new teacher — and that happens on Monday next week. If that is the case, I expect the move to happen on Monday.
So I was livid. Hopefully this will be fixed. But this isn’t the first time I’ve felt slighted by the school. It’s like I’m so nice that I get ignored or passed over on things my kids need or deserve. That stinks.
