I Know How To Spell!

Over the weekend, Makell was fretting. She explained (over and over again) that there is a new policy in 5th grade that if you don't have homework completed, enough AR points (reading), etc., you will have to stay in the office until 4:15. Then her eyes got wide as she told me that I would have to come pick her up at the school. I think she was more terrified at the thought of being seen with me than she was of doing her homework in the front office.

By Monday morning, Kellie had asked me to email her teacher at least 17 times. Because she is learning disabled, she follows a different set of rules in the classroom. She was worried that she would be required to complete everything the remainder of the class was required to do. I reassured her that she would not have to go to the office and that I would talk to her teacher.

Later that day, I logged on to read my email. I noticed one from her resource teacher. I opened it and found the following message that was sent from MY email:

makell tolled me that on Tuesday ,Thursday to go to the front office because she dose not have enaf ar points.
she tolled me that she needs 10 points or more.

The teacher responded to this email without the slightest hesitation. Did she not take a second glance at my spelling!? Did she actually think that I regularly spell 'enaf' that way? She knows me. She has talked to me in person. The fact that this email was not strange to her definitely says a lot about how I normally present myself.

I quickly replied to let her know that Makell was the original writer, not I. She found it hilarious, and then reported that my child had told her that I had asked Kellie to write the email for me. Uh....seriously? Did she take that explanation as truth? Did she at all wonder why I would start a sentence without a capital letter!?

I questioned Makell once she got home. She looked at me and said, "I almost forgot how to spell your name." For reals? There are only 4 letters in it! "Well, I was just nervous that I would have to go to the office." Alright, I understand. Good enaf.

Wow MaKell and Hunter are so much alike. Hunter did the same thing a couple of weeks ago. Infact, he carried on 2 emails with his teacher and the principle. It made me feel better to hear that Makell did this as well. I was thinking my child was the only one that ever crazy things. That is why I love reading your stories about your children because I realize my child is normal.

That's hilarious! My oldest, Whitney, is learning disabled and when I spoke to Vince Flynn (my new BFF) he told me to tell Whitney that being dyslexic (which they both are) is a GIFT. He said it teaches you new ways of how to do things and to be resourceful. I'm not sure this is what he meant though. HAHAHA
