I posted about Bradley missing school yesterday. I kind of knew he was building up to miss school (although I was hoping the drama wouldn't happen) so when I was driving out of the school and Bradley banged on the back of my car to stop me, my gasket just blew. As I pulled into the parking outside the school and before Bradley had even reached the car, I shouted out to the poor traffic signal woman who was trying to direct traffic, "Don't ever have children if you don't want hassles in your life" or words to that effect. She looked bemused, obviously not used to this kind of public display. Probably thought this crazy mother was finally going to do her offspring in! I continued screaming at Bradley as he got into the car and as we drove home, drawing curious glances from rush hour commuters. He just kept quiet and as soon as we got home, got out of my way. I saw the traffic lady this morning again. She was obviously relieved to see that I wasn't going into meltdown again today and cheerfully signalled me to move into traffic, both of us pretending that yesterday didn't happen!
