An administrator at NikkiZ’s office called me today at work. She was alerting me to an “incident” from earlier when NikkiZ fell out of her bouncy seat and hit her head on the floor. I see the woman who called several times a day, but she was oddly professional and all “Mrs. LastName” to me instead of, “Hey – Zoot…” like she would normally have spoken to me. I wasn’t really concerned since those bouncy seats are close to the ground, but it was all very weird. I even ended up having to sign a carbon copy of the paperwork that spelled out the incident. I guess it feels good knowing they have such protocols, but I’m very comfortable around the staff since I nurse NikkiZ around them several times a day, and the formality of it all seemed very off, in some way.
Either way – when one of the other parents heard us discussing it – she mentioned that she had to sign her first “Incident Report” when NikkiZ scratched her daughter. Can you believe that? NikkiZ! The troublemaker.
It was definitely an interesting afternoon.
