    That infuriates me.

    That's where I drew the line one day. Told the kid he could use my sink but that I would not be scraping dog doo off anything.
    You guys are all more generous than I am. I send the non-nursing issues to the secretary to deal with, and send follow-up emails to the teachers reminding them of appropriate reasons to send students to the health office.

    This is the nurse's office, not mommy's office.

    My secretary would blow a gasket if I sent kids to her for any reason! Wish I was brave enough to do that.

    I loved charting canine feces to the posterior of the L shoe heel in my assessment yesterday. Action was gloves and sani wipe unfortunately. Yes, I am the poo scraper. I guess I can classify it under a health issue because we don't want germs on the precious snowflakes now do we? By 10 years old I knew how to take a paper towel and some soap to my own shoe in the bathroom though...

    I love my kids and I would do anything for them. I love my kids and I would do anything for them. I love my kids and I would do anything for them. I love my kids...

    - my inner monologue this weekend as I scraped dog poop off my daughter's shoe.

    Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

    No scraping poop, shoes go in plastic grocery bag and kid goes shoeless unless mom can bring a new pair. I.will.not.go.there.

    I surely did not. I did, however, discover a fresh pack of bobby pins in the deep recesses of my cabinet. I braided her bangs and pinned them back. She looked fetch.

    She came to my office 3 hours later to walk a student down and the pins were gone. I guess it wasn't such a critical need after all.
