so. we have a parent drop off lane at school.
there are posted signs.
do not pass.
and we have gotton literature instructing "us", the parents, do not get out of your vehicle.
the stipulation is to pull up as far as you can,
child hops out of car,
you move on.
it seems there is a BOATLOAD of parents these days,
who do not heed any written instruction.
and then we wonder why our kids don't listen?
fascinating to me.
why is it necessary for moms to pull up in the line.
not to the very front.
but right in front of the building.
(i guess so their child has the shortest distance to walk into the building.)
put their car in park.
get out of the car.
walk around the car, to the rear passenger door.
open the door.
kid pops out.
then proceed to hug and kiss child.
then walk back around the car.
and wait. and watch.
until your child walks IN the door.
proceed to pull away.
while the drop off line goes to 12 cars long.
this problem has become MUCH worse since the tragedy in CT.
i love to hug and kiss my kids when they first get up.
in my house. in their beds. or around our kitchen island.
i am not a huggy/kissy person. ESPECIALLY in public.
shoot. my kids don't even want a hug and kiss in the car anymore. :)
i know we are all different.
but it irks me ~every~ morning.
and i am not exaggerating at all.
the line is for sure 12 cars long.
and when you have different buildings to go to...
it sure takes a lot of time to watch all these hugs and kisses take place.
it's especially funny.
because i see these kids pop out of the car, on their own, in grocery store parking lots,
at church on Sunday mornings, and even little league games.
but the school drop off line.
mommy better do it.
sorry for the judgement.
i just had to get that off my chest. :)
and if you are one of the mommies who do this.
i am sure i still love you anyway. but now you know.
this does get on my nerves.
my problem. i know.
i am working on it.
we now leave 5 minutes early. to wait in line. :)
