Every parent dreads it: getting a call from their child's school during the school day. I received my first one of the year a few days ago.
Instinct told me it was my daughter's teacher, and that she wasn't calling to tell me how much she loved my child.
After the caller identified herself as my daughter's teacher, the conversation went something like this.
Teacher: "I thought you would like to know that your daughter brought your wallet to school in her backpack."
Me: "My wallet?" (read with a surprised but not entirely shocked tone)
Teacher: "I have it on my desk now."
Me: "I'll be there in five minutes."
Don't know how she got the wallet. No idea what she had planned to do with it. I drove very carefully to school so as not to be pulled over with my wallet at Kindergarten instead of in my purse.
I've decided to start searching my daughter each morning.
And hiding the jewelry.
