Today was only Allan's 2nd day of kindergarten. The first day the kindergartners got out an hour early so there was not a mad rush of people from the whole school everywhere. Today he went the whole day. His class was one of the last to come out. Most of the kids in his class ride the bus but there are about 6 or 7 of them that do not.
I did not see Allan in the line. His teacher asked who I was picking up and I told her. She then realized he was not in the line and said "Oh no! He must have got in line with the bus riders!" She was very upset, turned to go into the school to look because the buses had not left yet but then out he came before she even got to the door.
She kind of put her arm around him and said "What happened?" He told her he did not know where she was. She explained to him how he needs to stay in line and make sure he stays with her when it is time to go home, etc. She was not being mean about it to him at all.
She looked at me and said "I think both of us almost had a heart attack!" lol.
Really, it was not that big of an issue, he just got mixed up and separated from the line somehow. He was fine and he knows to pay better attention when he goes back Monday.
When I told my aunt she kind of flipped out. She said the teacher should have paid more attention and had her eye on them to make sure they all got out. I told her it was a mistake, that Allan was not paying attention like he should have been (he gets that from me lol) and that it was not something to blame the teacher for (or Allan, really.)
you have been mad at the situation or understanding like I was? I mean
he was not even really "missing" he found his way out on his own and
everything was fine.
