Harsh

Wednesday, October 03, 2007

I was writing up the previous post when my son walked in the door, home from school. I didn't turn to look at him, just tossed a "hi Honey" over my shoulder.

That is I didn't turn to look at him until he replied back "hi mom" in the saddest voice ever. Since me, the hubs and the MIL are all sick as dogs, I asked :

Are you sick?

no

are you feeling OK?

yes

Did you get hurt coming home from school?

No.

All in such a sad little voice. By now I have ditched the computer and the opp I was typing up to go to him. He sounded so damn sad and I said that to him.

He started to cry saying "Thats becuase I AM sad!"

He bough ten Pokemon cards with his own money and has been taking and trading them at school with his friends since Monday.

Today some one stole all his cards.

I had JUST - as in not ten minutes before he came home- completed a payment on eBay for a lot of 60 cards. They were supposed to be for his birthday at the end of the month, but he just looked SO sad, so I told him (and showed him them).

Still. not nice, stealing form a classmate. Not nice at ALL..

He told me that during social studies they go to a different room and a different class uses their classroom. His friend D was in his desk, but D was his best friend in grade two and still is, he wouldn't have taken them.

Kind makes me proud he is willing to stick up for a pal, and give them the benefit of the doubt, but still. Not nice to steal from a kid. I hope his teacher can get to the bottom of it.

Ah, that is so sad. Why would someone do that to a kid or another kid which I am assuming was the case?
Poor guy.
That is nice that you have some more coming for him though.
You are such a nice mom.

I can just picture him being sad because I know how my son would feel if it happened to him, he trades his all the time at school too.

I hope the teacher finds out who done it.

I hope he can get his cards back - I feel so bad for the little guy. Kids can be so mean.

My 17 year old daughter had her pokemon cards stolen in grade 3. The kids' school has had a rule for a long time that no cards, no DS's etc. are allowed at school.

It's one of those things that just happens, makes moms mad, but it never ends.

Good thing you're such a softie. Nothing like a broken-hearted kid to make you give presents before their time.

Elizabeth I can, to a point, understand that the cards were a temptation. I assumed he kept them in his pocket not his desk, but stealing, no matter the temptation is wrong.

Sheila I hope not too. That would break his heart. He is going to Ask D if he saw anyone near his desk today at school.

Lori What really impressed me is that RM said if he could have his cards back he would buy a pack for the kid who stole them. He thinks every kid should have Pokemon cards

Tug A little. He is upset with the time between now and when the get here.

Tina I know it!

FantastaGirl I hope so too, and I hope this drives a point to my little man about being more careful with his things!

Fracas freaky that Pokemon has been out this long, eh?

Shelli Well, I am going to call the school, but not about the theft. The teacher now said they cannot bring the cards to school. Ho else are the children to play with them? Yes its horrible they got stolen, but with no one to play with them with him, they are useless!

Kentucky Girl It was especially shocking for him to cry real tears, he has been really big on the whole "I'm a grown up and i don't cry" for the last few months! It obviously really hurt him.

Mr.Fab me too!

NAG sure, we can play good cop bad cop. you get to be the bad cop!

Avitable I thought so too. Doesn't third grade, 7/8 years old, seem a bit young to start on a life of crime?

Aww the poor wee soul! That's absolutely rotten isn't it? I hope whatever kid stole the things is green with envy when your boy gets all his new stuff though :-)

I remember those thief days, having things stolen from me. Not fun at all. At least you managed to bring a bit of a smile back on his face.
