Lap 24, and we're still under the caution flag


Colton's top reasons for yellow behavior cards the last two weeks.


  1. I brought my gun (finger & thumb, complete with sound effects) to reading class.

  2. Abigail and I were talking to each other on the microphone on the tape player in reading class. We were supposed to be reading.

  3. We had a fire drill today, and teacher told us to line up and march like soldiers. Mom, you know you can't be a soldier without a gun . . .

'Cant march without a gun.' Sounds like logical reasoning to me. :)

I love it! My son is in Kindergarten too and they have CARES program with green cards to start and then yellow then orange then red. Chase did great for the first 2 days then got a red card (which involves a call home to Mom) and boy did that not go over well. He got the message loud and clear about "non-green" days. That is the first thing he tells us is "another green day today" and then he goes on to report who didn't get green days and why. That is the top news of the day is the "non-green" kids.

Enjoy!!

I’m not one to support victimology. In my experience I know there are very few true victims, but my kid is clearly a victim in this situation. How can anyone expect a 5 year old boy to “Line up and march like soldiers” and not bring a gun. The female equivalent is “Jump in the car and drive to the mall” and not bring your purse! Its an absurd thought. My adult wife couldn’t do it, how could my kindergarten age son?

Then he is put in a situation where he is presented with what is basically a karaoke machine. Two questions spring to mind. 1- What is a tape recorder with an attached microphone doing in the reading center (quiet place with an audience)? 2- What young guy could pass up an opportunity to serenade a cutie in front of her friends who clearly have an influence on her decision to like said guy or not? Impossible! Every guy in the world would take advantage of what a amounts to a kindergarten open mic night in hopes of making a new female friend. Apparently Mrs Kindergarten Law Giver doesn’t know how I met his mother, but I digress.
