Haydan returned to school today after a long week of spring break. She had a wonderful time visiting the Wild Animal Park with her grands’ and pedicures with good ol’ momma bear.
On one of her last days of Spring Break she decided to ‘tat’ herself up with temporary tattoos. Seeing as she asked me for her fourth birthday if she could have a Barbie tattoo cover her entire right arm, I saw no problem in her temporary tattoos. Hey, I’d much rather her cover her body in wacky temporary body art than cut her bangs or color the tile floors with permanent marker!
Justin (my husband) informed me that on the way to dropping Haydan off at school today, she was very nervous and worried she would have minutes deducted from her recess time because she had a tattoo on her body. Apparently, that is not allowed at school. Furthermore, I must have missed that portion of the school handbook. (Shocker!)
Haydan came home today from school and showed me that her tattoos had been removed. I asked her where they went and how the hell anyone was able to get them off that quickly without removing the first few layers of skin (have you ever tried to remove a ‘temporary’ tattoo?)? She informed me that ‘tattoos are not allowed at school! I told the teacher I had it when I got to school and they used a special wipe to get it off my body.’
I wonder what goes through the school administrations’ heads when I walk through the door! She is 6 years old! Come on! I didn’t send her to school with a tattoo of ‘MY MOM IS A BADASS’ on her arm. Oy vey!
