For the last 2 weeks I have  included a Valentine joke in the lunchboxes.

One day I placed the following joke in my  first grader’s lunchbox:

What did the bat say to his girlfriend?

You’re fun to hang around with!







Or so I thought.

He came home complaining about the  joke in his lunch.

“Gloria and Farrah were making fun of me saying that Lauren and me are boyfriend and girlfriend just like the bats.”

“What did you do?”

“I told them I was going to tell the teacher.”

“And then what happened?”

“Gloria said, “Please please forgive me.”

“And then?”

“I told her I would forgive her but I was still  going to tell the teacher.”


“I told the teacher.”

“”And then what happened?”

“She gave them tally marks when we got back in the classroom.”


“And I feel good about that.”

I decided not to send a Valentine in his lunchbox the next day.

  1. We have or should I say you and Derek have a judge in the making. He certainly does not let anyone off the hook. He might have a little trouble in the ” gray” areas of life…of course you gotta underhand the differences between right and wrong before you can drift a little…he has time to drift at 7.
