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?
are you feeling OK?
Did you get hurt coming home from school?
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.
