"Alex, don't be rude."

The best thing happened the other day, you won't even believe it. I couldn't believe it!

I took Alex to school so I could talk to his principal about his bus harness. Sitting in the office, waiting our turn, his teacher comes in to stand with us.

Now, at that team meeting, she expressed some... discontent that Alex doesn't treat her like he does his aides. He laughs and plays with his aides, but he won't even smile at her. I'm thinking, dude, you're new. give it time.

oh, no. boy, was I ever wrong!

So, Alex's teacher walked in to stand with us and discuss things while waiting on the principal. As soon as she walked up, she greeted Alex. I swear, the look he gave her was a plain as day Go To Hell.

As far as I know, there is absolutely no reason for Alex to dislike his teacher. No, she's not mean. No, she's not abusing him- I check him over every day. True Story. Paranoid Mama. She's actually soft spoken and seems to be soft hearted.

Anyway, so, there is no known reason for Alex to not like her so the look he gives her is just flat out being rude because he feels like it. I'm in shock! I stare at him in disbelief, then bark out, "stop that."

He looks at me with a frown in his eyes considering whether it's worth continuing, I think. After a minute, he wipes the rudeness out of his eyes and looks at her with a grudging welcome. "Thank you."

I have never seen him be rude for the sake of being rude and I'm sorry, I know it's bad, but I just had to laugh. Just another preteen moment. Gotta love it.
