Joey's grandma locked him in the fridge...

Joey's grandma locked him in the fridge....


We were going through our morning routine getting the kids ready for school and my wife came across what we thought was a journal entry in my son's notebook.  She was shocked and showed it to me and I was equally shocked.  It was about a boy named Joey who has ADHD.  My son went on to say how he sort of understood why Joey acted the way he did.  After all wouldn't anybody be hyper active if their grandmother locked them in a refigerator as punishment?


What?  Some kid at his school got locked in fridge by his grandmother?  Holy cow.  Something needs to be done!  So I took the page out of his notebook and made a copy of it on the home office copier.  After all I would need for evidence to show the school administrators.  Now before I marched off to school to get grandma put in jail I decided that maybe I should try to get a little more info from Ryan.

So when he came downstairs fro breakfast I asked "The story that you wrote about your friend Joey, Is that based on an actual conversation you had with him?"

Ryan:I don't have friend named Joey?

Me:  The boy you wrote about that has ADHD?

Ryan: Uhmmmm.... that was about a book we are reading.  
Then he laughed :-)

Whew,  I'm glad we didn't need to contact social services about that.....
