Today Chris (my husband) and I woke up to get the kids ready for school. We were all ready for a new day, a fresh start and crossing our fingers for Cara. I made sure to pack her snacks, running shoes, socks and I placed the letter that I had spent an hour on two nights ago that was not read yesterday inside a communication folder. Maybe this time the teacher may take a few minutes and read it, it is only an outline of all the do's and dont's for a 3 year old T1. Sorry for the sarcasm, I'm still a little upset about our school experience yesterday. Anyways, Cara was in great spirits leaving the house and she got on the bus with no problems....all smiles. I began watching the clock just waiting for the phone to ring, I just had a feeling that today was not going to go as good as I hoped. Maybe it is because my little 3 year old loves to scream and throw tantrums when she does not get her way or maybe because the teachers and other adults in the school seem not to truly understand how very important it is that they follow everything that I have talked to them about or maybe because I have a wonderfully over protective 12 year old daughter Kailyn who just does not know when to let others take control. So whatever the reason I just knew that the phone call was coming and at 9:00am the phone rings it's my mom "have you gotten a phone call yet" no mom not YET I said. I got off the phone with her and continue with my day, making sure all the time the phone is just an ear shot away so I do not miss the dreaded phone call.... and at 10:03 it happened. The phone rings, and I wait to read the identi-call it lights up and it is the school, OH SHIT not again. As much as I was expecting this phone call I just was praying that I did not get it....oh well! The secretary informed me that Cara has been screaming and throwing a fit since she had entered the classroom today and my oldest daughter Kailyn was unable to leave the Kindergarten room all morning or Cara would get all worked up again. First of all my 12 year old knows her ABC and123 she should not be in the kindergarten room, second of all Cara is not Kailyn's responsibility during school time hours that is why we have adults running the schools not children. I'm sure however that Kailyn did not mind at all to wast the whole morning trying to calm down her little sister but that is only making the situation worse. I said to the secretary has anyone checked her BG at all this morning? but she did not know and obviously to busy to ask anyone else that my know the answer to my question. In frustration I said don't worry I'm just going to have Chris pick up Cara because it's not fair to Kailyn or the other children in the class to have a screaming crazy little girl in their class. I called the nurses agency to tell them that Cara will not be needing there services today again and Chris went over to the school. When he got there Cara was settled down and Kailyn was back in class so they checked her BG and she got on the bus.
I know that it has only been two days but at this point I just feel like giving up, it is just so much easier to have her at home and I will know that she is getting the care that she needs. So I'm thinking that a few more days and another talk with the teachers and if that does not work she will be waiting another year to start school!
