Well, my daughter was admitted into *cries* the public school system. I'm am soooo disheartened. And my expectations were low to begin with, and let me just say that I'm not being disappointed. One of the first things they told me was not to let my daughter's hair loose and curly. They told me i need to braid it. Why? You ask? Because the school has already had several outbreaks of LICE.
Yes, and one of the outbreaks was in my daughter's class. Isn't that nice. Right now i can just throw up. Sorry if I'm graphic. But I have NEVER had lice, never met anyone with lice, and i don't want to. To me, lice was some urban legend growing up. I told my husband point blank that if she comes home with lice in some miraculous way, that either he was going to take care of it, or i was shaving her head.
Now, i doubt i would shave my baby's head, but a nice bob could work....
All i know is that, this reason alone makes me want to pull her out of the school already. And she's been in there for 3 days .
Oh, and don't get me started about the look I got when I explained to the administrator that she will not be wearing pants, and will only be wearing the uniform jumper or skirt, even for gym (with leggings underneath).
It is as if my heart has separated from my body and is literally walking around waiting for all these dangers to happen to it. And it's true. She is my heart. And at the tender age of 5 (6 on the 26th of this month) she has to fight to be seen in a room full of students (25) with 1 teacher, and will have all these non-Godly influences.
THIS WEEK IS BARACK OBAMA WEEK of all things! And we have to just go along with all of this, while feeling helpless. She will be fed all this liberal propaganda (no offense), with no regard on whether or not it is a feeling shared in the child's household.
I am so upset. I hate public school. :(
