The Boy was suspended from school for TWO whole days on Thursday. YUP this handsome little Boy you see below, this INNOCENT little Boy was suspended!

Okay so he is far from Innocent. I have to say though he hasn't gotten suspended since the first grade! A huge feet for us! If you know his background then you know this is actually pretty darn good for us. I have to laugh at how and why he was suspended. Granted I know it's wrong, however with what we've been through with him you learn to pick your battles.

This is a Boy who use to get suspended and KICKED out of MULTIPLE schools for fighting, biting, pushing, you name it! So for me, this is kinda a joke, but a lesson needs to be learned and I get that. Doesn't mean I don't think it's funny.

So yeah The Boy is grounded, which means no TV, no Video and NO Books. He's obsessed with reading. Since his Dad has to take 2 days off from work, he's making sure to put The Boy to work around the house. Now when he comes to my house this weekend we won't be able to do anything. My punishment for him, dragging him on my 5 mile walk around the lake. Ohhh Yeah!

Scene one:

The Boy is at school playing handball on the handball court when the ball bounces off the backboard and hits a girl standing on the sidelines.


The Girl - BITE ME!

Oh yeah, this fourth grader told my son to "BITE ME!" I don't even think I know what that means let alone her. I mean, seriously, I don't think it's something a girl should say let alone a fourth grader.


1. bite me

I would have to believe that originally 'bite me' was a slightly more acceptable way of saying 'blow me.' Just like people use fricken instead of fuckin.

Although I think it has evolved to really just mean something like 'F*** Off!'
Why don't you bite me!

So The Boy, being the genius that he is, approaches said girl.


How do you not laugh at that? Nice response BOY, The BF thought he taught you a little better than that when it comes to quick come backs. I don't even think The Boy knows what BITE ME means!

THERE YOU HAVE IT! Where do kids learn this crap from? So obviously the Girl knew exactly the meaning of it! She used it in the context of F*** Off. The Boy, YEAH not so much. F*** Off my wiener? HUH?? Blow my Wiener? Yeah no! That doesn't make much sense to me! So the one who has no idea gets suspended. Let this be a lesson, it's hard to break stereotypes and The Boy has been stereotyped as the BAD kid since pre-school. He can't help the fact that he was deaf for 2 years and his social skills are lacking because of it!

So like any fourth grade Boy who wants to avoid the wrath of their Father, he denies the fact that he told the girl to bite his wiener. He finally confesses (the next morning), however the damage of lying has been done and according to the school a lesson needs to be taught.

So The Boy is suspended not for saying BITE MY WIENER, but for denying he said it and then fessing up to it the following day.

I don't know about this one! I have to laugh because I think it's ridiculous. I know a lesson needs to be learned but PLEASE!

The worst part is they won't let him make up the missed work for the two days he is out. Which to most kids this would be a good thing, right. Not to my son who is obsessed with getting straight A's. You all saw my previous post regarding this issue.

So what happened to the Girl? She got in trouble for saying, Bite Me, but no suspension.

I think the whole situation has been blown out of porportion, I mean yeah 4th graders probably know a lot more than we care to admit to but its not like he pulled it out or anything! I mean it was just an expression! A simple apology would have been fine and then they could have just made you aware of it so you can do a home punishment. My mom would always say you think this was bad wait til we get home! Lol

Schools have no clue, I am convinced. you would think with all the kids, yeah kids they would but they don't.

My daughter got in a verbal thing with another girl, got blamed and got a detention..the other girl nada..I told the asst. principle what I thought of her decision.

Amy said...

Well, they should have put him in detention for that. Not letting him make up his work is totally wrong. Children are in school to learn and getting great grades is amazing. I would have doubled up the work for the student in detention. It was not a nice thing for each child to say that to each other either. Both should have be in trouble..

Have a great weekend.

Emmy said...

That so does not sound fair! Especially since he did come back and confess... He did not have to. What will that teach him?

Oh the things I have to look forward to in school aged years

natalee said...

____j said...

I'm sorry, but this was pretty hilarious! I read it to my husband, too, and he said he was going to start saying that to people =P

found you today and I am your newest follower, one of my friends sons is deaf and he had problems too, I found your blog very fun...

Everyday Mom Ideas said...

My two boys are 4 and 5... yep... I have so much to look forward too.

Lori E said...

My sons are grown but I still remember the stupid ways the school system decided things.
I am so pleased to hear that even though you don't agree with the school you are showing your son that there are consequences to getting in trouble. Good job parents. Good job.

He deserved to be punished. But what gets me is that the girl was not punished as well. Suspension is blowing it out of proportion, agreed. But nonetheless he needs to learn to respect others and should have been punished in such a way that the punishment fit the behavior. What ever happened to the old soap in the mouth? He was punished alright on top of the suspension he got stuck hanging with the Little Man and I for hours on Saturday. Such torture. Catch ya later.

Cassie said...

Wow. I think suspension is a little over the top for basically a verbal argument. I can understand the teachers wanted to express that that kind of language isn't appropriate but having a child miss school just makes everything worse.

I think they are taking political correctness too far for one thing and making too big of an issue out of things that shouldn't be. I think a simple reprimand would have been good. ANd it's TOTALLY unfair the other person didn't get suspended.
