WTF kind of Montessori school does Easter egg hunts with candy filled eggs? I don't mind a *little* candy, but she ate a TON at school. Also, you know what red dye does to her, right? Holy hell, I picked up a mean beast today!
Thankfully you are open tomorrow. So you can deal with the rest of the fallout plus the overtired mess she is sure to be because she was up almost an hour late freaking out on me.
Signed, Candy Shell-Shocked
P.S. In response to your email yesterday, I did not notice any brain fog or confusion. In fact I did a lot of math with her last night, and even taught her the nines tricks.
Do you like feeling out of control? Because this is how red dye makes you feel.
Also, that freaking out on me for telling your teacher that you did math last night is not cool. I'm sorrynotsorry that means you have to "do big work" at school now instead of the easy stuff you try to get away with, but guess what? If you went to regular school you'd do everything everyone else did at the exact same time, all day every day. So deal with it.
It's hard to stomach your politics and good ol' boys culture. That being said, I don't have to drive more than like three blocks to get good coffee when I visit because you have amazing drive up coffee shops on nearly every corner. I can get anywhere I want and park in 10 minutes. Plus, your weather is beautiful right now.

Dear Lab Jobs,
Please consider me. I need to get out of the factory. I can't anymore with my current position. And there's no path for me up if I'm not willing to leave my family for at least 3 months and H isn't going to quit his job to be a SAHD to go with me. I want 10 more years with this company, but not 10 more years in this position.

No candy in ours but I did hear a fun story this year about how they were double checking the content of the eggs everyone brought for the egg hunt because last year a kid ate a small toy.
That's really nice info to have. I would have focused on the size of our toys more specifically if you'd mentioned it in the note telling us to bring the eggs rather than in passing when I dropped off the eggs.
Oh well, have fun looking through eleventy billion eggs.
akafred I'm always amazed at how much sugar DS's Montessori preschool feeds the kids.
The one she went to for primary was uber-strict about candy. Another mom I know got a note home for putting a pudding pack in her kid's lunch. I don't mind the sugar all that much except we have had MANY conversations about red dye, and DH told her teacher at drop off that we reminded DD no red dye. But DD is 7 and has ADHD which is basically a disease of impulsivity, so we expected the teacher to help her with the impulse control required to succeed. Alas!

akafred I wish my boys' DC would tell us when they have a treat for a birthday or some other celebration. Usually I know if they have a holiday party and to expect sugar, but they rarely note if so-and-so's parent brought cupcakes for a birthday. We are not anti-treat, but too much and the boys are gremlins.
Our Montessori school provided candy filled eggs but put them in bags the kids decorated and stapled them closed as soon as the egg hunt was done. So the candy came home and I didn't know what was in the bag (assumed salt dough ornaments) and he was three eggs in before I caught on in the rear view mirror.
