To send the little sod who pushed ds over into the mud ds's coat so he can bloody well wash it himself?

Is this unreasonable do you think? I don't see why I should wash it and have to go to bed late so ds has a clean coat for school.

Could youjust dry it and then shake off the dust?

maybe he just said that was what happened so you didn't blame him for the dirty coat.

LynetteScavo Tue 14-Oct-08 21:25:38

Oh push him into the mud tommorow to see how he likes it... or maybe not.....

I did ALL the washing on sunday, hours of washing, drying and ironing. I really can't be bothered. It's coated. I'm in a bad mood. I'd like to send it home with a note. This is bad isn't it?

ds knows I don't really mind if he gets muddy, it washes. I mind this though. I'm not sure why. I think it's because of the mountain of clothes I have already done. I am being unreasonable.

It is tempting to push the kid over though hmm. I'll have to resist the urge.

couldn't you have stuck it in the wash when he got home though?!!

PhantomOfTheChocolateCake Tue 14-Oct-08 21:30:41

Yes but we didn't get home until 6. The washer takes ages (hours for some reason).

but I think you know that.

Perhaps the 'little sod' was retaliating? His coat may be in a WORSE state grin

It so doesn't matter, really. Your son got pushed over most probably in a friendly boisterous game, as happens in every school every day, always has, always will. My DD sits down in muddy puddles and bunny hops around in them. It's just mud. It will wash off and the little boy who did it didn't think 'stop having fun and calm right down, this boy's mother has probably done her washing for the week and won't want to do anymore, I should stop this game now'!!!!

Doesn't he have anything else to wear tomorrow over his uniform? Not even a pac-a-mac thing? It's not that cold right now.

compo Tue 14-Oct-08 21:35:19

it's going to pee it down tomorrow
send him in a pac a mac/raincoat, woolly jumper plus umbrella
and chill, relax, don't sweat the small stuff etc etc

You see, here I run the risk of being one of those mums than think the sun shines out of their child's rear end and their child does nothing wrong. ds has never pushed anyone over (as far as I am aware that is), I'd like to think the other kid was muddy aswell though.

Yes, I am being unreasonable. Odd mood swings for a couple of weeks now. I'm being unreasonable alot. Sorry.

PhantomOfTheChocolateCake Tue 14-Oct-08 21:37:48

Ah. If it's going to rain anyway I'll send him in the coat and the rain will wash it off. grin

Thank's for listening to me be unreasonable a cow moan. smile

But pushing someone as part of a fun, boisterous game and accidently getting mud on your coat has nothign to do with being good or bad, it has to do with growing up, being a kid, a boy, having fun.

I'd hate to think my child will never play with that much excitment and passion that they never fell over in some mud.

PhantomOfTheChocolateCake Tue 14-Oct-08 21:42:16

Ah, depends though. A boisterous game is normal for boys, it goes a bit to far when child A is headbutted in the stomach and pushed into the mud. There's a line somewhere.

jimjamshaslefttheyurt Tue 14-Oct-08 21:43:28

Is this some sort of joke?

PhantomOfTheChocolateCake Tue 14-Oct-08 21:45:00

No. I'm just in a bad mood. Sorry.

Thomcat Tue 14-Oct-08 21:47:54

I didn't realise you were there and witnessed the whole thing and that it wasn't done in play but was actually a nasty incident that you and your DS are upset by. That's surely the issue here in that case, not the mud?

2shoesdrippingwithblood Tue 14-Oct-08 21:50:34

was it caught on cctv, you could sue

PhantomOfTheChocolateCake Tue 14-Oct-08 21:51:56

I think I'm getting annoyed that ds keeps getting targeted by boys like this. I'm trying to work out if ds is doing or saying something to annoy them but he's giving nothing away.

PhantomOfTheChocolateCake Tue 14-Oct-08 21:52:51

sue for dry cleaning! grin

No, no CCTV. I'll sugest it to the PTA and see how it goes down. smile
