Back from the bookfair and it was actually alright. Many volunteers were there so there wasn't too much to do. No child said anything special to me this time and in a way I am glad. At the fair, the teacher got to do a wish list of books at the fair that they wanted for their classrooms. When I was made aware of this list I went to the board, found Pooka's teacher and there was one slip left. Each slip has the name of the book, the price, and where you can find it. So I grab the last slip in her slot and I be daggone if the book was $21.99!!!!!! All I gotta say is she better be lucky she is a good teacher, I like her, and I had my handy dandy credit card on me cuz I brought it. But best believe her Christmas gift card value just went down! LOL I was not planning to spend that much at the book fair! I figured Pooka would get 2-3 books for about 3-4 bucks a pop and call it a night!
We got home and I reached to go get her folder. Everyday we are supposed to get whatever the teacher sends home, reminders, and homework out the folder, then sign off on the daily behavioral chart. Some teachers do theirs by the stop light. Green means good day, yellow means ight day, red means bad day. Pooka's teacher uses smiley faces for 3 different categories. So anyways, I go for the folder and I see a bag with 4 very gently used books in it. My first thought was Pooka took them by accident or something and I wrote a note to the teacher explaining the possible issue. Then it was time to talk to Pooka....
"Where did you get these?"
"The book fair"
"Who gave you the money?"
"No I didn't, where did you get the money Pooka" I am getting an attitude cuz she just lied.
"Off the table."
Pooka walked over to the end table and pointed. As soon as she got to the table I had remembered I had put 2 or 3 dollars on the table that I had in my pocket yesterday. Apparently Pooka swooped up the couple of bucks, took it to school, and brought some books with it. At her school they resale used books for next to nothing so that every kid can buy a book at the fair. This fact came back to me from the last PTA meeting. So I guess she was on the ball. If I didn't see the books I would not have thought about that money until I was trying to hit the snack machine up or something and then wonder where those few singles went from the gas station the other day! LOL
Lesson learned: Keep my money in my wallet or it will disappear!
Then I went out to get my mail and a helicopter was flying around. Pooka following me asked me what it was, since I knew she knew what it was I told her it was a train....
"No mommy it's a helicopter, abc eyewitness news channel 11"
OMG, I just looked at her and swore she didn't say that so I say..."What is it???" and she repeats. I swear I could have fell on the ground and laughed myself into oblivion! ROFL
Lesson learned: Pooka just might be watching too much TV!
I got a call from an unknown number about 9 something last night. I answered it and a young black sounding guy addressed me by my first name. The voice didn't sound familar so I am quickly doing a mental scroll of who this can be. Once the guy confirmed I was who I was he started asking about me contributing to that police thing, you know the one where you get a decal or whatever! Let me find out the telemarketers are getting desparate! They probably saw my name on their call list and said, let us get brother Kevon to call her since she is most likely a black female! *eyeroll* Don't be calling me by my first name only unless you know me like that, if you use it better say my first AND last name! Shoot!
I like Fantasia's new song, it's currently my shake yah booty jam of the week!
It's Dr. Nic's birthday so drop a well wish over that way <--------
Mommy told me this morning she is going to VA (didn't I say that in my blog??) this weekend so I am going to stay in NC and if the mood hits me, take Pooka to the Christmas parade tomorrow. But Ladynay don't you mean Thanksgiving parade? No, Christmas! *sigh* It's all about the benjamins baby!
