Dear School Secretary,

You are kind of not nice. 

I wish you knew my son, you'd think he was a great kid.  Yes, I know he's forgetful.  I am, too. 

You give me a hard time every time I drop something off for him.  I realize you're busy with your job. 

I understand that by eighth grade, he should not forget something he needs for school.  I don't need you to tell me. 

Just so you know, I will continue to serve and love my son.  I wish you felt the same about the students in your school. 

If he forgets something again, I will be bringing that item to him.  He is a great kid.  Honest, hardworking, kind, and respectful.  If he forgets his lunch money, I will not be teaching him a lesson by letting him go hungry.  If he finishes a project early, but gets the due date wrong, I will bring him that project. 

Till we meet again,

an enabling parent.  


  1. Oh, dear, Kirsten. And so it begins. Perhaps if you bring her one of your fabulous concoctions of yummy treats when you bring the forgotten item, she'll smile. ☺

  2. "you are kind of not nice" - love it!

  3. At least she is not one of his teachers!
