BBQ Ranch Popcorn – freshly popped popcorn coated in ranch dressing mix, brown sugar, and paprika! The perfect movie snack!
Happy almost Friday!
Ugh, guys, I’ve had a week.
Let me tell you what happened on Monday. I think I may have mentioned that Fat Baby (who isn’t a baby) couldn’t find his shoes one morning last week and after searching the entire house, I gave up and we went to Target to buy new ones.
So he was about an hour late to school. The first time he’s ever been late. Whatever. Not a big deal.
Except apparently it is. Because on Monday, I get a letter from the school saying that he has lunch detention the next day for being late a total of 60 minutes for the school year.
A four year old in detention.
Have you ever heard of anything more ridiculous?
So I immediately got in my car and drove the school and told them they could kiss my you-know-what.
I should have though.
I kept it together until they told me he’d sit in in-school suspension through lunch AND recess.
Ohhh heeeeeeck no.
Long story short, first thing the next morning I got a call from the assistant principal telling me that they’ve since changed their policy (since yesterday? really?) and he will not have to serve lunch detention.
I mean, seriously? I wanna know who decided detention was a good idea for preschoolers. I have a few things to say to that jerk.
I had popcorn and wine for dinner that night. Because duh.
