To celebrate spring and the end of mandated testing DD wanted to bring in cupcakes for her class. I sent a note asking the teachers permission and she said yes. So last night (after playdate) we made 40 cupcakes. 24 in class plus extras. This morning we deliver them to school only to be told, "No homemade goodies at all." Has to be store bought. While I grasp the concepts - if a student has a reaction to something their parents can sue the store not the mom who made it. And, apparently last year some kid brought in hash brownies at some school some where! So we all get punished for some bad kids. Is it really that we are more litiginous than we once were? Is it that we are worse (put bad stuff in on purpose) than we once were? I get it, I'm just sad about it. Kids like making things for their classmates. It used to be a bad thing if it was bought, remember? Just another change. I must be getting old.
