earlier this week in a comment on a friend's blog I wrote:
Apparently in the years that I've had the hooligan clan in preschool/therapy and things have gone well I've lost my MightyMom mojo. I'm now faced with The Battle of the ISD and am quaking in my super hero boots and have misplaced my cape. Please pray for my perserverance and fortitude. Meanwhile I'll be searching out 5 smooth stones and a slingshot while preparing to stare down the Giant.
On Wednesday, I guess I found my mojo.
MM calls school leaves message for principal.
1 hour later no response so MM calls back, is told principal went directly into meeting...VP not available...MM speaks to counselor.
MM lays out in polite but definitive terms current school issues and MM's requests.
Counselor says she'll talk to Principal and call back.
MM goes to bed, SuperDad Subvet takes over....he goes to school and stakes out Principal's office.
SS tells MM later that evening that Principal started by telling him how MM'd yelled at counselor. We laugh...if she thinks I was yelling she'd better hang onto her wig. I've not even begun to get REALLY mad yet!
Principal tries to brush off SS. ain't happening.
Thanks to his superhero powers of persuasion SS gets'r'dun and we now have plan of attack for improving Sonshine's school experience. Albeit a different plan than what we'd requested.
To Be Continued............
I'm thinking I'll make us matching capes for Halloween!
