Fortunately I did not have the pleasure of teaching this little girl, as her mother was something else (Did have a few occasions to meet her). First of all, you must understand that she did not talk, she barked. I don’t think she was capable of speaking in normal tones. She would call the school office daily to “check up” on her daughter. She would chat and want to know what the lunch being served was. If the lunch menu had anything her daughter did not like she would put up a huge fit. It got so bad the school had to tell her not to call the school anymore! Her Girl Scout troop was going to go to a farming community to pick some apples and other fruit (in southern Arizona). Her mom was very excited and wanted her daughter to bring her back bananas and some other tropical fruit. It took about 10 minutes of explaining what they could and could not pick. Goodness, there are plenty of other stories with this mother, but I can’t remember much more as it was a while ago. Another girl (this one you just have to wonder what the parents are like) went on an overnight trip to Phoenix (AZ) end of May. The other girls complained because she turned on the heater in the hotel room because it was “Still winter because it is not [officially] summer yet”. Outside temps were over 100 degrees. She also wore a jacket to the zoo.
