That's all! Great for a 3yo....by the way, if nobody's told you, 3 makes 2 look like a walk in the park...I thought I was raising a sociopath when ds was 3. Not trying to scare-- just prepare. Three is a NIGHTMARE. Four is the reward for not killing them at three....just sayin'...
Love these lyrics. I have to be honest with you, I never remember a tune in my mind unless I hear it a billion times. Are you okay with me using my own tune?
Did you ladies know I used to be a teacher in a 3 year old classroom? I know it really is different with your own child but I have some experience with the wily ways of 3s. We actually get along pretty well. I will keep you posted, though. As I read your posts on Thursday I was actually cursing you both as she was whining her face right off of her body for no known reason. So, there's that...hahaha.

AFM: My daughter came home crying, "Why am I so different from everyone else? No one likes me." She said she wanted to home school, but most days she says she wants to stay in school. I've really disliked her school experience: the school refuses to provide appropriate academics (they sort of tried by putting her in an enrichment class for advanced kids, but the more time she spends in school, the more I suspect that at least in terms of reading and math, she's highly gifted; either way, even the enrichment program is way, way below her achievement level and the school doesn't have anything else to offer); she really struggles socially; and the school pushes junk food and screen time way too much. I have to decide whether to register her for first grade or not on the last day of school. If she consistently wanted to home school, it'd be an easy choice, but she waffles. Plus, I'm going to give birth in October: I think it'll be especially hard to figure out how to be a good homeschooling mother who gives her extroverted, INTENSE child all the social stimulation she needs right after giving birth. Recovering from having number two was so hard, though I don't expect the transition to three to be as intense since I won't be tandem nursing and he just has a different temperament. I just don't know what to do with her!
So, what kinds of "cleansing" do you do? I always pull goddess tarot on the new moon (or as close to it as possible) and set my intentions that way, usually leaving the cards on my altar for a reminder on what the Universe is calling me to do.
Your DD... Can I just hug her? Do you think, by any chance, next year will be different because it's like a "new" start and so she's not the new kid anymore, or at least, she's assimilating into the brood more? Does that make any sense? Is there any chance that she's just still getting into the groove of socializing with this new group of children - for example, when I start a new job for the first 3-6 mos I always feel like the odd person out and I am always saying I want to quit, I want out, etc. and then one day things just kind of coalesce...I may be TOTALLY off. Maybe the junk food is shocking her system, too. I know we eat pretty healthy here and when I eat food that is out of our norm (really greasy or sugary) then I get totally off kilter. Not that it's HER that is making the situation difficult but that isn't helping her with coping. KWIM? Can you register her and then change your mind?
cool. love this. Thanks for sharing!

I've been having some intense dreams too. Like people on a golf course taking their horses and bulls out for the season. And the horses are wrapped in plastic wrap. Then some woman is telling me to be careful because really bad things can happen. Then I'm on a motorcycle and she's telling me (but I'm a guy in the dream suddenly) how I unknowingly caused her brother to die and she was going to kill me and then made there be deep water under me where I was supposed to drown but I shape shifted and jumped onto dry land.
I have dreams like this every night, I've always been a vivid dreamer but usually not about dying or crazy people. This pregnancy they are all a little twisted and someone told me it is the testosterone pumping through me. IDK
Anyhow other than that I've been getting ready for the birth, just a few weeks maybe days now...
Sending you lots of peaceful dream energy and hopes for a nice, easy, slippery birth! Those dreams are intense, mama! What do you feel like in the morning/throughout the day after them??
Today is Z's birthday party. We go to a park and eat pizza and play and enjoy our family. Of course, my parents and their respective spouses still won't even look at eachother and they have been divorced for TEN YEARS! TEN. YEARS. I want to tell them all to GET OVER THEMSELVES!!!!! So, please, send me some good, calm, energy. My cards for the new moon had to do with spiritual healing and I hope that has something to do with this situation.
