That's What You Get When You Leave Your Child Unattended!

As one of my students got dropped off today her Dad says,
"She may be a little off today, she got in trouble yesterday afternoon!"
I said, "Oh No, what happened?"
He said, "She decided she didn't like that my Cadillac Escalade was black and decided to go to the garage and paint it white."
(P.S. - she used regular wall paint and was alone long enough to paint both entire sides painted)
I felt like saying, "that's what you get when you leave your child unattended!"
Instead - I laughed!

Oh, wow. Serves him right. You can't leave kids alone for that long -- even I know this!

it amazes me the way people just don't watch their kids...why was the little one even in the garage (or outside) alone anyway...good grief!

Amanda said...

Just saw the twitter comment - mine is never home either...both kids are sleeping so I am curled up on the couch with my computer!!!

Pam said...

I can hardly believe that! Geez- who lets their kid alone in a garage, much less long enough to do that. Oh my!

Mommy Mechanics said...

Oh my. He's lucky she didn't take it for a ride.

Ohhhhh snap! I bet Daddy was one angry fella. I can hardly blame him for leaving her alone like that...it's my understanding that that's how men roll.

scary! How old is the child? what grade do you teach?

Momma On The Go said...

Yep, he deserves it! at least that is all that happened. Thank God she didn't wander off or get kidnapped (can you tell I'm a little paranoid).

Why would someone leave their child alone for long enough to do that? Especially if the child is being quiet. Sheesh. Serves him right.

Lori said...

oops! that is too funny, but I can see being ticked at that too

Mamarazzi said...

what an idiot! seriously, who is watching your kid? if that's not a scream for a little attention i have no idea what the kid needs to do...sheeeeshers!

Christy said...

Ha! Kids are crazy.

omg! that is SO funny. I wonder how long she was unattended because getting paint and figuring out how to prepare everything to begin painting a car takes a lot of work! hahaha. i love your blog by the way, i found you through stylish handwriting. :)
