So, yesterday was Super Spawn’s very first day of 3k. How exciting, right? How much fun?
Yeah, it was exciting — until about 4pm when I get a call from another child’s mom. It went something like this:
Other mom: “Hi, this is other kid’s mom, our sons go to school together.”
Me: “Uh, hi.” Thinking- oh no, what did Super Spawn do to her kid? Why’s she calling me?!
Other mom: “I think the school accidentally sent Super Spawn’s medicine home with other kid.”
Me: “They what? What medicine?”
Other mom: “It’s, like, a needle thing and benadryl.”
Me: “THEY SENT HIS EPIPEN HOME WITH ANOTHER CHILD?!?!”
Other mom: “Isn’t that something he needs to have with him all the time?”
Me: “YES! OH MY GOD!”
Other mom: “I’m sorry, I only saw it when we got home. I’ll bring it to school in the morning.”
Me: “Thank you so much for calling.”
Now, parents of a non-allergy child, or someone who has never seen a person go into anaphylactic shock might think I’m overreacting. Truth is, the negligence of one person at that school yesterday could have KILLED two children.
I flipped out.
It has been handled, the school apologized profusely and reprimanded the negligent person. They have also developed a policy for how to handle Super Spawn’s epipen so that it will always be within a moment’s reach.
So, I was a little too stressed out last night to write my Tipsy Tuesday post. So you get tipsy ranting! HA! And here’s the drink to go with it!
- 1/2 cup tequila blanco
- 1/2 cup vodka
- 1/2 cup rum
- 1/2 cup gin
- 2 cups cranberry juice
- 2 cups pineapple juice
- Pineapple wedges, for garnish
In a large pitcher, combine all ingredients and stir. Serve chilled in iced tea glasses with a wedge of pineapple for a garnish.
