i got a call from the kids' school the other day – i never like to see that number on my caller id. i've only gotten calls about bad behavior and broken bones, not calls i love. so when i saw the number, my stomach dropped a little.
luckily, there were no broken bones or sick kids. however, it was a bad behavior call...henry apparently had been sent to the principal's office. so my brain starts racing...what did he do? it's usually some sort of class disruption because that kid can't sit still. and sure enough, it was. but that wasn't the reason for the call. the reason was that he and some friends were singing gangnam style in class during their free time.
the vice principal actually sang me a verse from the song to show me that they had used the word "sexy" in class. now don't get me wrong, this isn't a word i encourage my kids to use, but it's also not a word i would punish them for using. and (and this is a big and), i happen to know that one of the school's teachers played that song during a school rally. i know this because both kids came home and told me – they thought it was cool.
so the vp and i had a little talk, and i kept my cool. i did inform her that they can't really punish my kid for singing a song that was played at a school rally. i also agreed with her that the kids shouldn't be using words like that. and in the end, i could tell she felt a little silly for calling me, or maybe it was for singing "hey sexy lady" to me over the phone. either way, there were many footloose jokes made that night.
henry is basically a modern day kevin bacon.
