Kora's musings

Today Kora came home from school looking guilty. I almost knew immediately after seeing her face get off the bus something had happened and it was probably her fault. I asked her, "Kora were you on yellow today?" She said, "No". I said, "Were you on red?" She said, "No...I don't wanna tell you, you'll be mad at me." I asked her if she had gotten in trouble and again her answer was no. Hmm...so what don't you wanna tell me? She said, "We were cutting paper and I had to go to the doctor(nurse) at school." I asked her why, "Did you get sick? Did you have a fever, a headache, a tummy ache?" She shook her head. "Did you cut your finger?" Nope. She said, "we were sitting and I cut my nose with the scissors." What the...? Your nose? She said, "I put the scissors like this (showing me with handles by her mouth and the blades up by her nostrils on either side ready to snip it off) and cut my nose."

Okay, only MY daughter would cut her nose at school. She said she was embarrassed so she covered her face but her friend told the teacher that her nose was bleeding. They sent her to the nurse to take care of the mess but she was fine. Dork. Who does that? And an even better question is, what kind of a mother am I that my daughter would be scared to tell me she cut her nose? Geez.

HA! That's funny! Poor Kora, I can't believe that she thought that you would be mad. Honestly, I don't think that she knows you very well :-)
Hey, when you stop beating your kids for ridiculous things you should come by and help me clean my filthy house... ugh! I don't wanna do it.

Ok, I am sorry I have to laugh at this because I can see how kora can be so curious that she accidentally cut her nose. She obviously know that you would be furious becasue she didn't intend it to turn out that wat, it was accident mom!!!

I miss Kora...on the front row of Primary in Sunbeams. She marches to the beat of her own drum, huh??

Oh, sweet Kora! I can understand her fear though, I was once spanked by my kindergarten teacher for speaking out of turn and didn't tell my parents about it until I was in high school!! At least she told you.

Alex once cut holes in the knees of his new pants at school and made up an elaborate story about how a dog was waiting for him when he got off the bus and chased him and bit holes in his jeans....the moral of the story is at least she told you what really happened and didn't blame it on a rabid dog at the bus stop snapping at her nose.

Maybe she wants to be a plastic surgeon so she can make her mother black in real life.

Gumption!
