So.......about Noon I get a call on my cell. It was the school number, so I answered right away. It was Gillian.
"Mom, I fell in the mud at recess....can you bring me some clean pants, socks, and shoes?"
Fell. In the mud. I am trying not to laugh. Fortunately, she does not sound at all upset. She actually sounds amused by the situation!
Then the nurse/secretary gets on the phone. Apparently, Gillian collided with a boy on the playground, and they both took a mud bath.
I chuckled all the way home, while I found clean clothes and shoes, and all the way back to school. On the way in, I ran into the dad of the boy who was part of "Mud 2008," he took a look at what I had in my arms and started to laugh. I took a look at the mud covered clothes he had in hand and laughed along with him.
Gillian wasn't as mud covered as I'd imagined, but she definitely needed clean pants and shoes to go back to class.
And the girl took it all in stride..........And I laughed all the way back to work!
