Gosh, here too. The one thing I DID put my foot down on though was cleaning dog poo off of shoes. I went to the teacher's meeting and told them, "cleaning dog poo off of shoes does not require a medical license. The only reason you would send that to me is because you feel it is beneath you. If you do not want to clean it, what makes you think I do? If you don't want to do it, give the child paper towels or send them to the bathroom and have them clean it, but don't send them to me. I don't clean dog poo off of shoes!" I told the child, there's the sink, go ahead and clean it. She said, "you actually want ME to clean it?" I said, "Yeah! It's your shoe. Why should I clean it?" She said, "My mom told me to come to school and have someone clean it." I said, "Your shoe was like that before you left home this morning?!" She said, "Yeah, it happened while I was playing outside yesterday and my mom told me to have someone here clean it for me." I said, "Well, someone IS cleaning it. From now on, if you don't want to do it, mom needs to do it for you. ok?" She said, "ok, I will tell her." I was soooo hoping I would get a phone call from the mom, but I didn't.
