In the car on the way home from school today...
K: Mommy, this boy was really mean to me today at school. He kept pushing me.
Me: Did you ask him to stop?
K: No because I'm kind of scared. He's a third grader.
Me: Well, tomorrow if he does it again, ask him once nicely to stop. If he keeps doing it after that, tell the teacher that he's bothering you.
K: How 'bout I say this to him. Then changes to his sweetest voice - his "kind" voice if you will. Colton, please stop pushing me you lazy fool.
So, he might be coming home with a black eye tomorrow. Keep you posted.
