I am not sure if I was supposed to know this or not. I think it just kind of slipped out. Morning kindergarten happened to end right as I finished up my meeting with the district nurse to go over Alex's care at school and was walking out to the parking lot with Dennis when I ran into his teacher.
"So how did Dennis' day go?"
His teacher said Dennis had a great day except for the problem she had with one of her afternoon kindergartners.
"Whhhhaat?" I asked inquisitively.
I think she assumed I knew.
But I hadn't heard. No one had told me.
But now, I needed to know.
The teacher said how all the kids just went with the flow excepting Dennis just like any other kid. Except for one little girl.
When she came to class she immediately freaked out--- BIGTIME--- calling Dennis scary.
Basically having a total freak out she repeated screaming and crying over and over and over how scared she was of Dennis. Enough so that she had to be removed from the class as to not get the other kids all worked up.
The teacher finished with, "I guess her parents didn't talk with her at home."
And had I not ran into the teacher, would I have even found out?
When John got home he had a good talk with Dennis about his first day of school.
After, John came to me--
"Christine that is not the only thing that little girl said. She also told Dennis how messed up his teeth are."
My immediate not so nice response-- "He should have done this!"
Okay okay, I know that would have made things worse, but really? She had to be removed from the classroom because she couldn't gain control because she was so scared of Dennis? Really?
