Oops! My bad

Tuesday, June 05, 2007

I got a phone call from the school shortly after nine this morning. The teacher asked me if I would be able to come by the school as quick as possible. Seems they were having a problem with Rainbow Man.

She didn't sound too worried, but a phone call from the school? They don't ask you to come in just to shoot the shit now, do they?

Of course I said I would be right down. And in fact this could not have happened on a better day. I had the car because I was to take Blue Boy for his Physical in the afternoon. A quick call to the mother in law to come and watch the kids and I was in the car and driving.

Don't worry. I noticed before I got off the street that I was still in my house coat.

When I got to the school, I used the side door that leads straight to RM's classroom. When the kids saw me, several of the girls started giggling, the boys started blushing and the teacher outright laughed.

He's in the office she said.

I headed down the hall, surreptitiously checking that my buttons were buttoned and my zippers zipped. (they were)

When I got to the office, RM was sitting in a desk, his hands clenched, face streaked with tears. He was redder in the face then I had EVER seen him.

I got down on my knees to look him in the face. Are you hurt? I asked.

Instantly the tears started again, and his clenched fists waved in front of me. I couldn't understand what he was saying through the tears.

I looked over at the secretary who was trying to hide a smile behind a folder. What?" I mouthed.

She pointed at RM and pantomimed opening her hands.

When you are a boy, who has just begun to notice that girls are not just boys in cute shoes, static cling sucks.

One of the girls had noticed something sticking out of the back of Rainbow Man's shirt. She kindly removed it and handed it to him, but not before all the kids in his class got a good look at his momma's panties.

My bad.

you gotta be kidding me. He must have been devastated. I'm so sorry for him. Send him a big hug from me. Plus I'll make sure on grocery day I'll buy you an extra box of bounce.

Sheila look! you were first!

Sheila And second!

RoxDar I'm allergic to bounce. Hence our constant battles with static!

Mr.Fab Stained panties? What would YOU know baout panties, stained or otherwise?

Angel he's OK now.

One Tall Momma By the time he came home - yes I made him stay at school, he was fine.

Metal Mom they are also very comfortable and come in blue pink and purple.

Blogarita i told him that, he did think it was funny they laughed at me

Sam I hope that RM and his class mates don't actually know the difference between hot - or not panties! they are all seven - ish.

Avitable hmm. If thats the case he will need some in his own size.

Shelli thanks! Kinda wish it was the sponge bob thong, but as long as the were clean LOL

Finn last day of school is June 27th~

Aunty P he went back.

Flip Flop Momma I owned granny panties throughout all three of my pregnancies. the day the bleeding stopped after they were born, was the day they were thrown out. granny panties are nasty!

Tug nope, we have three and a half more weeks of school

WebMiz I don't own any granny panties ...anymore LOL

Slick I feel bad for him too, but they are nice, aren't they?

Marilyn in the summer cotton gusseted panties are a leading cause of yeast infections (write that down) you should go comando.

You should buy those natural ones from Home Hardware. They are designed for people with allergies to Bounce or other dryer sheets. That's what I get for the girl, cuz she breaks out all over from bounce. You can use them 10 times before getting rid of them.

hmmmmm This made me smile even though I know he was mortified at the moment. In the distant future You both will have a great laugh over this.
I have a RM and well with much prodding and lots of bullying he just Graduated from HS and is off to college next year....
His RM moment was caught by me TG it wasnt his Sisters or Father, But well I was looking at my garbage can on my computer and well I saw a male member (take a quick guess here of what member I'm talking about LOL) my head spun around quickly and I looked closer and hmmm I thought OMG I'm gonna kill my Husband , but then I looked closer (EOUUUUUU!!!!) IT WAS NOT MY HUBBY!
the RM of my life came home from School and I gave him the look.... you know the one... He knew I knew and that alone just about struck him down at that moment!
well after many promises of I wont ever ever NEVER do that again , I got over it and so did he LOL
years later we as a Family laugh this off with all the other silly things the kids did as small , younger children like my DD and the duct tape caper or my other daughter and the ransom she made her little brother pay because she caught him kissing the little girl next door (they were 6 at the time)
things like this happen and after all the hub bub we learn to laugh and realize that life is funny and it makes you smile and that my sweet is what its all about!
I enjoyed you blog and im adding you to mine if thats OK ~~
peace ! Judy AKA Sugar Queen
