Background – This happened at the beginning of the school year last year. We started the year with a new nurse and a new protocol regarding Caleb’s diabetes. All of Caleb’s teachers were on high alert. For a couple of weeks in a row, Caleb had to check his blood sugar during art class due to feeling low. The event he writes about happened shortly thereafter.
One day at school when I was in art, I raised my hand and my teacher, Miss P, asked, “Do you have to go??” I said, “ Yes.” Miss P called Mrs. M, the nurse, and told me to check my blood sugar. My blood sugar was fine so Miss P sent me to Mrs. M’s office. I did what I was told.
When I got to Mrs. M’s office, Mrs. M was confused. She looked at my blood sugars and was about to ask me to check again when I told her all I had to do was GO to the bathroom.
Poor Miss P was trying her hardest to be quick to address any issues Caleb had. Her unfortunate choice of words, “Do you have to go?” had dual meaning in this case. This time, he did NOT have to go to the nurse, just the regular old bathroom.

lol sometimes are kids are just that…KIDS!! 🙂
That is funny!! Thanks for sharing the laugh!
I could tell where this was headed…Love it!!!
Oh that it too cute! Good one Caleb!
I love it. Everyone was a little confused. And what a sweet boy to just go along. I DID like, however, that they all were on high alert for C . . . that’s priceless.
I can just see him going through the motions, following directions like a good student…all the while, holding it and wondering when he was going to get to the bathroom! HA HA HA HA!!!!
I love a kid that does what they’re told…. even if it means they might wet their pants. Way to go Caleb!
That’s funny! Poor kiddo probably really had to go by the time Mrs. M figured it out!
Caleb, you rock for going with the flow! (Okay…I didn’t mean it THAT way!)
I can totally see how that could happen..Very funny!!
That is funny! Good that it wasn’t an urgent “I have to go.”
Love it! Sounds like something Bean would do!
HA! that’s a lot of stuff to go through just to use the restroom!!
Hahahaha, what a funny story!!! Thanks for sharing, Caleb!
Caleb – moments like these you learn to use emphasis… I have to G-O-ooo. vs. I have to go. Too funny! Thank you for sharing this.
You all made me laugh! Thanks for the comments everyone. It’s a funny memory for me.
Thanks for the giggle today, Caleb!
So cute! You’re lucky to have such concerned teachers/staff at your school!
When I was in school we raised our hand with one finger up if we wanted to sharpen our pencil and two fingers if we had to go to the bathroom. I don’t know why we didn’t think of it as going #1 or #2 – if you know what I mean! 😉
lol..in 5 seconds this kid must go! (think of Js letter) heehee
good one Caleb!
HAHAH this is amazing. Since I was 15 the nurse at school told me I had to check only in her office and I laughed at her. She wasn’t even a nurse, just a volunteer mom, which is fine…but sorry I am NOT leaving class to go check! I always hated having to ask to go the bathroom too. Makes no sense to me! lol your poor kid!
