I was baffled this morning, as i got out of my car to walk my daughter into the cafeteria!! I was asked by the asst. principal-How long will i walk my 7yr old daughter into the school? What kind of question is that to ask a parent. I will continue to walk her into the cafeteria for as long as she attends that school. What is the problem????????????
