Wife’s out of town today, so I had to write e-mail notes to Fontaine and Elizabeth’s teachers about a few things. They went something like this:

Mrs. Jondrus:

Elizabeth’s mom is out of town today, and I needed to update you on a couple of things. Wife may have already sent you a note, but we communicate most often by text message and the wires get crossed sometimes.

First, Elizabeth will be staying for “After Care” today. I don’t know why you have named your after-school program like that of a mortician’s service, but nonetheless, Elizabeth will be there. Also, she brought her “reading buddy” book in today, although we didn’t practice it as we were supposed to last night. See, we couldn’t find it. That’s because Wife had put the dang thing exactly where it should have been, nothing is ever where it is supposed to be in our house, so essentially, it was lost.

I realize that Elizabeth’s technicolor quilt dress does not match her technicolor striped tights, but she already had them on so….I just wanted YOU to know that I know they don’t go together. For the record.

As for her snack, I don’t even know what she brought, but I hope there are no banned ingredients, like nuts, tree nuts, gluten, milk, sugar, citrus, flour, salt…

Finally, upcoming, Elizabeth will be missing a week of school, as our family is going to Disney World. She used to be our princess-fascinated girl, but that has faded away a bit ever since she learned how funny it is to burp and toot.

Anyway, if she needs to make up school work to compensate for the week of kindergarten she will be missing, please let us know. Her mother and I are well-aware that The Road to Harvard begins at age six, and we certainly don’t want her to wind up in the ditch.

If any emergency type situation should arise at school today, since Elizabeth’s mom is out of town, please feel free to call my cell phone directly. The number is 9-1-1.
