He's a Lover Not a Fighter

Everyday Middle Twerp comes home with a behavior folder to tell the tale of how he minded his manners that day. The system goes like this:

Green: Great Day
Yellow: Warnings Given
Orange: Multiple Challenges
Red: We have your spawn tied to a stake with duct tape, please come get him and transfer to another district before I go into early retirement.

Friday I opened the folder to find an ORANGE mark under Middle Twerp's name.

After my gasps and denial, I looked below to read the reason...

Although we love that MT has a big heart, we have to speak to him several times a day that he may NOT kiss his classmates. Can you please help us with this?

Help you with this? Honey, I think that is what is wrong with this world today. There needs to be more love and less hate. More kisses and less hits. That is how we roll.

IJ disagreed he said we need to give MT the tools he needed to be successful in school.

I looked at IJ and said, He can't help it. He's a lover not a fighter.

So we discussed it with MT and figured that problem was solved. Until this morning.

I dropped him off at Kindergarten and he ran up to his teacher giving her a big hug and GINORMOUS KISS right on the lips.

Then he grabbed her face in his two little hands and looked her straight int he eye and said...

"Teacher I can't help it. I'm a lover not a fighter."

Priceless. Priceless indeed.

MT is going to have every girl in a 10 block radius writing MT loves whoever and thier name and your last name all over their trapper keepers - or whatever they have today. What a little cutie patootie!

Being a "spirited" child myself, I believe MT has it right. We should be lovers and not fighters. Go MT.

Goodwife said...

Congrats on raising a lover! You are exactly right. At my daugther's school they are not allowed to hold hands. No little girls holding hands and skipping along......how sad is that?

I actually laughed out loud! That is so cute. I agree with you! Being a lover is much better than a fighter!

Cecilia said...

Ahh such a cutie. I used to nanny a little boy his age that used to try to kiss me and the other nanny on the lips. We told him that lip kisses were only for mommies. There the only ones lucky enough to get them.

That is definitely priceless!!! OMGosh that is so funny!!! I can't believe he said that to the teacher!!! GO MT!!!

Pippi said...

That is "udderly" priceless and I am sure the teacher could hardly keep a straight face. She will never forget that and that little face looking at her. I can still remember some things said to me from 1968.
