The first grade Performance

Let me just start by saying I hate the school nurse at Murchison Elementary.

Addie has been practicing on her part in the school performance for months. She has been telling us about it and was beyond excited about it. In the morning she had a big performance in front of all the school kids. And then later that evening for all the parents and administrators. About 22 min before her first show I get a call from the school nurse (aka. drama queen bitch) saying Addie is very ill and I need to come pick her up. I drive over there annoyed and I ask her if she is pretending to be sick just cause she is nervous. The worst part is the school nurse hoovers over my conversation with my child the whole time and interjects her opinions when she sees fit. She assures me Addie was green in the face when she arrived at school. Bottom line- I don't care if she doesn't feel well. I was taught to man up and do what needs to be done. The music teacher was frantically trying to teach a stand in the lines with 10 min to go when Addie had 3 months to learn them. I insisted she go out there and do her thing but the nurse insisted she couldn't. I was persistent and the nurse said the only way she would let her do it is if I stood behind her on stage.(like is the ruler of all nations or something along those lines in level of importance) (smeh!) Lame as lame can be but I did it. I had a valid point to make for Chris Sake. So I saw the back side of her performance. And looked a little crazy up there all random. Either way she did it and was FINE. I came back at lunch time to check on her and she was fine fine fine! The 6 pm performance she did on her own. Damn I could flick that school nurse right between the eyes for being such a twit! If ever you have an overly dramatic child pray for a low key lay ed back school nurse or your life will be a night mare.
Oh by the way. Way to go Addie! You killed it! Life lesson learned I hope??

Did I mention she was fine? As in not on deaths bed or even close to throwing up?
