After a few seconds, he pulled an envelope out of his backpack that was addressed:
"To the Parents of Benjamin"
He was SO nervous that he was in some kind of trouble. It was kind of funny because I knew as soon as I saw the envelope that it was probably from the nurse who does the hearing tests.
The look on his face was priceless though! The poor kid was a mess!! I probably could have played that up a little bit, but I couldn't handle doing that to him. He handed me the envelope and just stared at me, waiting....
It was, in fact, a note from his hearing test saying that he has an infection in his right ear. I guess that means antibiotics, which was good news to Ben! I guess he will take medicine over being in trouble any day!
Seriously, does this look like the face of a trouble-maker? ;)
