An update to my previous post

First of all I want to thank all of you for your kind words. It really makes me feel better to know that I was not being over-sensitive. Second I wanted to report that I did talk to the teacher this morning and she knew about the incident yesterday and that she sent a note home to this child's parents. She was unaware of the first incident and said she would say something as it is a policy not to hand out invitations at school unless everyone was invited. She understood my position and my concerns. While I was in the carpool line waiting for Olivia to get buckled in I thanked her teacher for talking to me this morning. She told me that she talked to the class today about how hurtful inviting some to a party and not others was. She also told me that she got a note back from the parents from yesterday's incident and they had no clue what she handed out but it was not an invitation to a party as they don't have one scheduled. She also told me that she was going to send a note home to all the parents the first day back from Spring Break gently reminding them about the inviting all or none rule.

Thanks for everything y'all!


  1. That's super Becky! I truly believe that in most cases people do not purposefully want to hurt anyone's feelings. It's great to have a teacher you feel comfortable enough to talk to. I tell ya', people just do not get any nicer than those in the state of KY.

  2. I am glad you said something to the teacher.....sounds like she is a great one...she handled the situation, perfectly!!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. I'm so glad that she handled it so well. Now hopefully the other parents will, too.

  4. We have that same policy: all the kids are invited, or all boys/all girls depending on the situation. Otherwise, they should be mailed.

    Glad to hear the teacher handled the situation so quickly. I hope the parents actually follow through and obey the rules.


Our friends say the sweetest things!
