Last week, I took a giant bag of candy into class for my students. They told me that I am a mean mom.
You see, the night before - I put the kids to bed. Then, I put the kids back to bed. Then, I put them back to bed and told them that I expected them to stay put. Then, I finally told them that the next time they got out of bed - they would lose all of their halloween candy.
I thought that they would stand and take notice. Instead, they tested me.
So, the next morning, J and I sequestered the really good stuff for ourselves (we aren't dumb). And, I gave ther rest of the candy to my students.
Mean mom indeed.
