Christmas Krazy

As I sit here contemplating the next TEN school days, I realize I haven't told you latest from Krazy Mom.

Our school counselors do a great job identifying families in our school who need assistance at Christmas. They put up an Angel Tree with requests from the families - you can take a die cut angel and get a present (I picked one for a little boy who wants a book for Christmas. A.Book. Broke my heart and made me realize how much we have, how little we need and what we take for granted.) for someone in the family. The counselors have also put requests up for gift cards from Target, Wal-Mart and Publix. They give each family a certain number of these gift cards so they can buy whatever else they need or want.

I forwarded the counselors' email to all the families in my classroom and about ten minutes later, Krazy Mom dropped me a few lines and copied the counselors.

Basically, Krazy said that we shouldn't be giving gift cards to these families because they can sell them and use the money for drugs and alcohol.

And, are you ready? She said we needed to make certain that all of the recipients of these things were not illegal aliens.

If she'd looked around, she might have noticed that our school population doesn't really tend to run in that direction.

For once, I am totally speechless. What you hear is my mouth, totally open, flapping in the wind.

She's probably Sarah Palin's cousin. Who has such a hard heart?
