For the ones of you that follow my blog and are friends with me on FB, you probably know Jennifer got sick at school last Thursday. I was already on my way to school to eat lunch w/Thaniqua. I got there and Jennifer was in the nurse's office. No fever the nurse said but she got sick in her classroom. I called Paul since it was lunch time and he came & took us home. We changed her and put one of her favorite movies in and I did laundry. She seemed fine so after a couple hrs I left to go get the kids at school. Jennifer stayed home w/Jared. I came back and Jennifer ate a few crackers and some 7-Up and was doing good. I decided to sit down and ask Jennifer if there was anything she did different before she was sick. We talked and then I found out a good reason she got sick.
Jennifer told me a girl in her class wanted her snack. I guess she always wants her snack. She sits at Jennifer's table. This is what I send Jennifer for her 10:30am snack. Nothing fancy I feel.
Well here this girl punched Jennifer in the tummy really hard. I also found out this she was chasing her so Jennifer was running from her. It was also pretty warm here last week. So they went inside from recess and she started eating her snack & got sick.
I asked Jennifer Why didn't you tell me ???
I didn't wanta get that girl in trouble. Well Friday we kept Jennifer home even though she could have went. I went to eat lunch w/Thaniqua & Ridge then I talked to the office. So now just waiting to see what happens. I just want this to stop. I don't send anything fancy to school just healthy like they ask us too. That is also what I send the older kids.
I talked to Paul and we both feel its sad that at that young of a age a child would get so upset over a granola bar. We also talked about maybe donating some snacks for the school for children that don't have them. I know it won't be a answer for everything but I just wonder if her parents don't have a snack for her. It's sad but Jennifer has been dealing with this for a while just didn't want to tell on her. I do know that Thursday was the first time she hit her.
So Jennifer is returning to school tomorrow and feeling better since she told us.
