Should be Mom Confessions, hmm? We were at school this morning for the annual "Race for Education." It is a school fundraiser, and the kids run/jog/walk laps around the school for an hour (30 minutes for pre-K). Yeah, an hour... these kids were wiped out. One little girl in my daughter's kindergarten class was not able to make ONE lap before stopping to walk, and she did nothing more than creep along the rest of the hour. She is very fat... and her mom buys her ice cream every day at lunch. At her parent teacher conference, the teacher told the mom that the girl was throwing away part of her lunch so she would have time to eat her ice cream, and suggested that maybe she didn't need ice cream every day... kid still gets ice cream every day. Most of the kindergarten/1st grade kids get it once a week (Pizza day is the day most kids seem to get ice cream money).
The poor kid couldn't even jog one lap, and only walked 4 laps, when the rest of the kindergarten kids made 12 (lowest) to 23 (highest) laps.
