Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

my 7 yr old stayed home from school to do house chores. ETA

well, not quite.  Wonderful ds woke up before the sun, snuck into my room turned off the alarm.

He takes a school bus to school and his school is too far for me to take him myself if he misses that bus.  

I woke up at 9:15, 15 minutes after the (school) bus pulls out.  Nice.

My lovely child thought he would spend the day playing video games by doing this. HAHAHAHAHA

No. >:-(

Right now he is reading a book, when he is finished that he can clean uphis toys and dust.  Then he can write some lines.  Then he can wash the bathroom and dishes.  Then some number problems.  And so on.

Hope his day is not as fun as he thought it would be.  

For me, I am installing a chain lock on my bedrom door, to allow cats in and out and keep children out and away from alarm clocks.

Edit:  for the people not able to comprehend why Im am not taking him. I don't drive and the school he attends is TOO FAR.  I covered that in the OP.  His school take about 2 hours to get there (by city bus).  By the time we get there, I will have to turn around and come home with.

And his school starts @ 9:45, end at 2pm.  He goes to a special needs school, which is why it is across town.

For cheese sake people, the CITY BUS does not go directly to his school, his school bus does.  He rides alone on the school bus, no stops direct route.  

This post was not about transportation people.  It was about the lovely stunt my child pulled.  *sigh*

Are you guys just messing with me now?

Even after the edits I got like 6 replies asking about the transportation.  *banging head against wall*

Ok, he takes a school bus directly to school that takes from 9am to 9:45am.  If we take the city public transit which does not go directly there, has stops and transfers it takes longer.  smh. And yes, he has short school hours because AGAIN as it said in the original post he goes to a special needs school.  Wtf people why you not read the damn post???

Ok, this is like my 6th edit.  I really REALLY don't know HOW people can't understand the bus timing lmao! Without drawing pictures, there is nothing else I can say to make it more clear

There ya go. Make his day miserable and I doubt he'll do it again. Maybe get a second alarm as well. I wouldn't wanna lock my kids out. I set up to 10 alarms on my phone tho.

I hear you about missing the bus, if my son missed his bus, it would require a 35 minute drive...but I always make sure I am at the door 10 minutes before the bus is supposed to come.

I think what she is saying is that she would have to take city transportation which is probably not a direct route to the school, where as the school bus takes a direct route to the school... 

Quoting D.O.E.:

ok but you said the school is 2 hrs away and the bus picks him up at 9..............

his school starts @ 9:45 actually.  He goes to a speccial needs school, which is why it is so far away.

I guess you don't understand that when you take public transportation,it can take a lot longer to get from point A to point B. You have to sometimes transfer buses with waits inbetween,etc. So it takes much longer.
