12. "LET THEM EAT IN PEACE" In response to Reply # 7
lunchtime was the one time you got to kick it uninhibited. I don't wanna see my mama.
what kinda needy parent bullshxt is this, LOL.
this is hilarious.
I've always been of the opinion that school is a social microcosm of the 'grown-up' world, where you give your child a chance to learn the ropes. Barring any serious issues, we'll talk about it WHEN YOU GET HOME. That's how you "..become more active and involved in their children’s school lives..."
we are apparently supposed to monitor every single minute of their lives. they can't have moments to themselves. the news scares parents(not unwarranted, but still...). we have to pad the road so when they fall, nobody gets hurt. oh, and we can't allow them to make decisions. we want dependent, entitled kids from rich families where everything is fine and no one ever had a problem.
anything other than that is just weird or poor peoples problems.

Instead of suspending kids from school they force the parent to spend the day in school with the kid. Apparently it’s getting better results because out of school suspension wasn’t working and was just a vacation for the kid.
I would be mad as shit at my kid if I had to take off work for that shit. Best believe you would act right after I showed up.
4. "small differences in cultures" In response to Reply # 0
Trying to explain to my 50-something white co-worker why I was getting my weave taken out even though to her it still looked very cute. I would never have to explain this to someone black, but the shit had been in for a month plus and it was time. Somebody familiar with 4c hair would have understood intuitively, but she also has three biracial grandkids. Should I have gone into more detail? idk.

6. "I miss looking at my child and NOT thinking about myself" In response to Reply # 0
I want to watch and enjoy her But I watch her try to sleep right now and I think “hurry up homie, dad needs a break” Those data will come back But right now we’re in the heart of curious, adventurous, and mobile ... but not at all independent Ask it’s taxing physically for attentiveness. Like driving through a storm at night.

14. "Missing home...again..." In response to Reply # 0
Seems like it really kicks in when me and Mrs. Blanchard hit a bad spot.
We were riding high for a good lil minute, then reality hit and I'm back sleeping in the guest room.
Sometimes I swear the only reason we're still together is 'cause I think it's too late to get with my "next lifetime"
I'll be back home right before Christmas (going to Panthers v. Falcons) with the kid. This trip could go one of two ways. I purposely didnt let anyone know I was coimng home for Thanksgiving cause I didnt need the distraction.
Now?? Sheeeiiiiiittt....I'm halfway mad I didnt reach out
