If I worked somewhere where my boss called me Official I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas shirt, and got pissed if I didn’t answer, then I’d just charge the company time and a half, rounded up to the whole hour, for all the time worked on vacation. I expect that would put a stop to it right quick. Then, at 37th week, on my scheduled appointment with my gynaecologist, he told me I had to be induced that same day. My baby wasn’t growing as the placenta was not transporting enough nutrients to her.
So, we got checked in, and started the Official I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas shirt. Let me say, it wasn’t at all pleasant. However, I was very calm and not nervous. The team of nurses and doctors were very professional and explained every detail to me. The next day I went into the school office and asked to speak to the teacher. The principal, upon seeing the note, decided to sit in on the conversation. The teacher said she was glad I came in, and hoped that after this my daughter would learn not to lie! She explained the classroom discussion and stuck to her guns that my daughter was obviously not Korean and therefore a liar! After 30 minutes we established that my daughter did not claim to be Korean, only that she had been born there.
