My Little Loverboy
And so it begins.... I got my first call from the principal's office last week! Since Jackson has been in kindergarten for three months, the only surprise I had when I got the message was that it hadn't come sooner. Especially considering a week prior he came home with a scratch clear across his face from his first "fight on the playground." Apparently this one took place out of the eyes of his teachers and finished before any real blood poured so all was well.
It's only understandable that as I dialed the number to call the principal back I was expecting to hear about another brawl. Also understandable should be the total shock I incurred as she explained to me that Jackson had just left her office where he had been sent for, "KISSING ANOTHER GIRL..... ON THE LIPS...... DURING MATH CLASS."
Nope, didn't see that one coming at all! I must say, I wasn't quite sure how to respond. I couldn't lie and say, "oh, we never allow kissing," or "this is the first time I've ever seen him kiss." It was just last summer he had his first kiss with another little girl and I thought it was the cutest thing I had ever seen! But... he's in kindergarten now and apparently kissing is no longer cute.
Still, I couldn't help but chuckle as I explained what had happened to my husband. He on the other hand didn't find any humor in the story. "Are you going to think it's funny when he's knocking girls up at 16?," he says. Well that's a bit harsh!
Upon further investigation into the "kissing" incident we discovered that the girl he kissed was the same girl that just a week earlier Jackson had come home saying he hated. When I asked him why he hated her he said, "because she always tries to kiss me." My husband laughed and said, "ahhh, you must mean Sophia. She tried to kiss him when I dropped Jackson off the other day," he says to me. Then to Jackson, "you're crazy Jackson, she's a little hottie." Mmmmmhmmmmm.... Well at least now we know who will be changing all of his grandchild's diapers while Jackson is finishing high school.
