So upon having a coffee with my friend Kris last night I learned something awesome but also a wee bit concerning regarding the future of my kid and whether cops will be involved someday. To back track, Kris and I met during pre-natal classes, so Finn and her daughter Nyla have been friends since fetus. Last week they started JK and love seeing each other every day at lunch as they aren’t in the same class. Kris (and I swear she’s not stalker mom) was trying to get her other kiddie to sleep in the car so she drove around and decided to check out the school yard as it was lunch and she thought it would be funny to see what are kids are up to. Apparently they are up to no good.
Each class is split into SK and JK, so the SK kids go out first, line up and they are taken to the ‘big kid’ school yard. Kris sees the kids line up outside and all the JKs are in the class still looking out the window, waiting their turn. Not our kids. Covertly Nyla’s class door opens as she pops out and quickly jumps in line with the other kids. In two seconds, Finn’s door opens as he sneaks out and joins her in the line.
Fast forward 13 years and the story is different. The teachers/bouncers catch on and the are refused entry into the big yard/bar and then Finn and Nyla go and rob a McDonalds.
I thank Kris for being there in that exact awesome moment catching our delinquent kids in action, and I will file this story away in the archives only to relive it in a decade or so. God help us all.
