so the school called today and the receptionist on the other ends says " Hi I'm calling about ben's absence today?" I was like "uuhh we put him on the bus!" she said "ok let me put u on hold and double check...EEEEK That was the longest 30 seconds of my life! my heart was racing a little. Then she got back on and said the teacher accidently marked the wrong box, and she was sorry for scaring me like that! Yuck I can't imagine how awful that would have been if something had happened to my baby! :(  dumb school lol

And that is why calling your child out sick from school should be policy in every district!

I love that if I dont call my son out sick I get a personal call from a live person and he's a Junior in HS!

No kidding.. It was a simple mistake. But I understand the worried part I probably would've had a mild heartattack

 OMG>..this happened to me YEARS ago....my son's afterschool care called me and asked me to please call them when he wasn't going to be attending.....I asked them what they were talking about...and they replied "about today's absence".....I said "Devon was supposed to go to after care today".....they checked and five minutes later (after I had ALREADY left my office to drive to the school)....they said he was outside with some of the other boys playing, they just didn't see him.  I was SOOOOOOOO po'd, but I'd rather be po'd about them making a mistake than have it be true, kwim?
