What kind of real heart did they see? First grade...shouldn't they still be like cutting and pasting valentines or something?
Wow, KK. That is some intense stuff! I think *I* would have fainted. Okay, I KNOW I would have. A strong stomach is not something I have anymore. :
I just wanted to thank you all for your thoughts and advice...no one came off offensively, no worries...or at least, I didn't take it that way.
I guess I'd been beating myself up over all sorts of dealing-with-three-and-some-odd-months stuff...I yell, threaten, bribe, let him watch too much TV, get angry, take things personally...my faith in myself as a mama hasn't been too good lately. I'm just feeling at a loss, like at a REAL loss, for the first time in, well, a while, with Rowan. He's just been so...(DH would say "batsh*t INSANE") so...three. The whining and the tantrums and the not using the potty AT ALL (let's talk about those "developmental delays", shall we? ) and the refusal of anything remotely social (tomorrow I KNOW he's not going to want to go to the library story hour. *sigh*) has just really got me on my last threads.
I've also been working all evening so I am extra-tired and worn out and I ought to go to BED. Hah.
The love letter to Spongebob was an eye-opener, though, thank you.
Anyway, thank you thank you and I am reading and trying to stay caught up. I'm present. Mostly.
Have a good night, mamas.
I really you guys.
Oh, speaking of ...VDay plans? None. Going to work tomorrow night. Oh, but I know DH ordered me a heart-shaped box of See's chocolate! That's all I need. Hah. We'll also all go out to lunch tomorrow, Rowan, DH and I. Aww.
Okay, good night.
