Well this child, MY SON, pictured below (with my grandson):
Innocent.. YEAH right~! LOL
pulled a good one this week!
I get a text from his teacher this morning:
"Sherlyn, did you know Lane brought your husbands' 10K wedding band to school and gave it to Haley ?"
OH MY GOODNESS!!!! NO!!!!! I DIDN'T KNOW THAT!!! BUT my husband is wearing his wedding band.. OH NO!!! Lane must have brought my Deceased Dad's wedding band to school! "
(MY dad died at when I was 18, my mom gave me his wedding band from when they were together; I have had it for years now)
I checked where I keep it and it WAS still in the jewery case! HUMMMM???
My Dh and I figured it it must be his old wedding band he had when we first got married over 22 yrs ago. It was not comfortable and cut into his finger so we bought him a comfort band about 5 yrs into our marriage.
Text from the teacher:
"I told Lane to take it home and give it to you yesterday...and I asked him this morning if he did so and he said he did! "
ME: "No, Mrs. S.. he did NOT give it to me last night!!!"
5 mins later.....
"Sherlyn, I questioned him some more and he said no he had NOT given it to you... that he had taken it WITHOUT permission (no kidding!) and so he hid it under a desk in his room"
Ok... now he is a thief and a lyer! (LOL... yes funny but serious!)
I checked under some furniture in his room.. YEP there it was.. my husband's first wedding band!
OK.. now the punishment! What to do..?? I was really mad at 8:30 am..
Now I am dissapointed... and thinking what to do besides sit down and have a good stern talk... and of course think of a punishment!
HE knows better!!!
THANK GOD little Haley showed the ring to the teacher yesterday evening before she went home from school.. Thank you Lord you intervened!
So... obviously he is in trouble...
boy parenting can be hard!
All for love.... (don't even get me started on that one.... HE IS 10 YRS old!... NOT 16.. NOT 20..
4th GRADE TEN!! 10!!!
Any input is welcome!
My mom was not any help! I told her (she is 80) and she said "DON'T be too hard on him!" He comes by it naturally! WHAT??? I say??? THIEVING ,,,,, LYING NATURALLY!!! WHAT are you talking about..
She said her mother and her had found a diamond ring in the yard at their house... buried... in the dirt....and her mother put it up.
My mom said she took it a few weeks later and gave it to a boy that she had a huge crush on. My mom was 9 and the boy was 15.
My mom said the boy took the ring.. smiled and thanked her nicely..
and when her mother found the ring missing.. she lied too, then fessed up, then her mother marched her over to the boys' house to get the ring.. and he had given it to his girlfriend!
LOL (they never got it back! ) LOL
So thanks allot mom.. YOU are ALLOT of help!!!!!
Update at 5:30 today.. so he gets home from school.. I go over all the details with him and make him tell me the 'story'! He hangs his head in shame.. (so that is good).. he is very nervous... and very quite (alway loud.. so not normal to be QUITE!!) so definitely feeling bad.
I determine he got it out of my jewery box on Monday gave it to her Monday.. brought it back home Monday! (yeah.. the little girl was showing it off to everyone and the teacher saw that.. and got curious) this little girl is in ANOTHER 4th grade class... not EVEN in my son's room!
Anyway.. he has probably been thinking about this since Monday... coz he knew he should not have taken it!
I laid it on good too.. and THICK!! LOL
"Lane.. now let me get this straight... I was shopping in town in the farm supply store for something dad needed and I bought you some farm gloves (he loved them!) and so I was showing my "love" for you... . and let me see... YOU WERE STEALING FROM ME!"
YOU were disrespecting me!"
"Lane, do I have that right?"
"YES mom" he says... "That is right" "MOM, what is my punishment"...
I said "I don't know.. what should it be.. do you think?"
He says "I, don't know??? I am not the PARENT!"
HA ha... kids.. don't you love 'em!"
