back in early December, I blogged about Dumpling's interview for pre-K. During the whole process, they kept saying how they were looking for Diversity. They didn't want a school filled with cookie-cutter jews with big cars who all live the same lives..... well, apparently a french-speaking chinese-jewish girl with parents who aren't doctors or lawyers isn't diverse enough.... or maybe a bit too diverse for their taste. She has been wait-listed. I am crushed. I really wanted her to go to that school, but now I'm so pissed at their fakeness that I'm not so sure it's the right place for her anymore.....
I am sure a big part of their decision is based on me. I have definately not made friends with the other moms. Not for lack of trying. But I can't be fake, and I don't have time to go to all the play dates, what with having a real job and no helper to schlep my kid to and from the *right* activities. But she is in the toddler school program and loves it. And I must admit, I was a bit complacent with the whole french speaking, chinese thing. I mean, would they have the balls to refuse the poster child for modern judaism. Apparently, they did. I guess that's a lesson to me. But now she's the one who will suffer for my refusal to play by the rules.
I am truly bummed by this news.
Edited to add: Actually, my dear husband IS a lawyer, just a non-practicing one. wait, maybe it's HIS fault!!!!
