A bomb at school...
I said to him, "You can't say things like that. If you say things like that, the cops will come and you will be sent to the office. That's pretty serious." His eyes got big and that was that. I mentioned it to the teacher before leaving to make sure that he talked to him about saying things like that at school.
You would think that it would be all over with, however as I was driving away from the school I thought to myself, what if he really did have some sort of a bomb in his pocket and is in the classroom with my daughter. Of course you want to give him the benefit of the doubt that he is kidding, but what if?
I drove away and thought I wonder if at any time during these school shootings or bombings...did the perpetrator jokingly say something to the kids..." I have a gun in my pocket" and they just brush it off not believing him. These are the kind of things that are going through my mind.
So now I sit at home still wondering if I should call the teacher, just to confirm for my mom heart that the big bulky thing that was very obviously sticking out of his pocket was not a bomb.
What to do?...how sad that this is my worry today.
