Soon after the kids left for school, I began to worry about Ben getting in trouble for his painted face. I considered calling the school to let the secretary know what was going on. I needed to call anyway to let them know that Jackie was going to be picked up by her physical therapist. When I called about the latter, I forgot to explain about Ben. So, I emailed his teacher. She emailed me back and admitted that she was taken aback by Ben's face but she didn't make a big deal about it and neither did anyone else. Good, I thought.
When I picked up Ben after school, I asked him if anyone said anything about his face. He exclaimed "a lot!" Then he was so excited as he told me that two people asked for his autograph and he gave them his autograph. I asked if his teacher said anything. He shook his head and then said that Mrs. W told him that she likes his other face better and that she hopes to see that one tomorrow. I couldn't help but laugh hysterically. He was so excited about his celebrity status.
When we arrived home, I took Ben's picture for memory's sake. Then Ben told me to put his funny story on Facebook so everybody can see it. So, I did put it on Facebook. And now I'm writing about it so he can share this funny story one day with his own children.
