Ugh. Some things are feeling very hard to me right now. Not things with Shawn, that is going well, (for a change ) just some stuff I can't really talk about here.

I would just like to feel a little lighter in my heart right now.

Pauline, we are all here for you if you need an ear or a shoulder.

Hedy, on one hand i KNOW what its like to be the kid getting called fatty, and i KNOW all about hiding it from my mom some days and coming home sobbing on other days.
i'm sorry tyhere might be a problem with name calling, its a hard road to travel.

Addy is really into girls=pink boys=blue right now. its driving me CRAZY. i dont know how to "fix" it. i keep telling her "i know lots of girls, including me who like blue, and we know a few boys that like pink, Daddy likes pink too" etc, but it doesnt seem to matter what mommy says, cause moms know NOTHING, and pink is ONLY for girls!!! :eyeroll:

i got the call this morning for Addys eval for SID/SPD and possible OT for it. i'm really excited for it, i think we can really get some help in working with Addy and how to deal with alot of her sensory issues.
it happens on the 7th.

WHY did i eat mac n cheese for lunch when i KNOW my tummy cant handle it???? WHY??

I'm not saying that that couldn't have been the case but I also remember feeling like I had to "protect" my mother from the knowledge that I was being teased and called names at school. I would downplay things or make jokes out of them. I think I felt ashamed about it and maybe thought if my mother knew how other children were treating me that somehow she would be ashamed of me too? I know now that my mother would have been supportive and tried to help in any way she could but it wasn't something I could fess up to as a child. I guess I'm just saying that even if she is insisting that it is all in fun, maybe you could talk about how those "fun" comments could hurt a child's feelings and try to imagine how that child might feel. Just so she would know it was alright to open up to you about it if she is being bullied.

Of course you probably don't want to create a problem in her head if none exist. Oh dear, six must be a hard age in some ways.

Take or leave my advice as I don't have a six year old but just know that I feel very empathetic with you in this situation.
Yeah, I think I may just ask her teacher about what he sees, because I'm not getting a clear picture, and her story can be very different, depending on her mood, which makes it difficult to figure out what actually happened.

And I was EXACTLY the same way. Was WAY too ashamed to ever say anything about what was being said to me at school, so I never said anything to my parents about it. I wasn't ashamed as early as kindergarten, but once I was in high school, I kept all of it a secret, because I thought... if they knew, they would also hate me.

Pauline, you can come over to my house tomorrow, and our kids can play "Lord of the Flies" in the backyard while we drink tea and benevolently ignore them. I'm watching my housemate's daughter, too. (That ought to be interesting.) And or anyone else. I will have had some sleep, presumably...I might even be good company.

Over an hour to go at work. It's weird, working so late. I should pick up another job right now, and I so don't want to. I'm in an awful mood, very low frustration threshold, I'm not sure why...my period was last week. It's all I can do to keep from growling.
post #1648 of 1788
Oh Beth...... I am sorry. (I know what am I doing on here when I should be providing your babe with brain stimulating activities all the while baking treats and knitting)
post #1649 of 1788
go ahead...growl! you might feel better

heavy hearts are hard


i'm feeling productive and restless at the same time. i tidyed (sp?) up but i don't want to vacuum or do the dishes until the napper wakes up. HOW do we get so much schmutz on the floor?????


i'm sort of waiting for a tentative call to pick my (drunkard) husband up in battleground or somewhere up thataways. he headed off to his first ever golf tournament this morning and he was pretty excited. and he was hoping to go to the afterparty thinger. the tournament was with all his ex work buddies. i'm really hoping he can get a ride home (he got a ride up there). on 2nd thought maybe he could just stay up there

You sound drained. Uh, understatement, right? Doesn't have to be tied to your period.

Lily and I just took a bag of REALLY ugly apples we picked off of a friend's tree, and made beautiful applesauce out of it! Yay!

I would have NEVER ever told my mom if someone was calling me names like that. I got enough of that crap from my stepfather, (which they both deny).

Bre could be in that with her ballet class but we are having a garage sale. I am trying to get rid of the last of our crap. Oh and there is something wrong with my car. The heater stopped working, it smells like coolant or something and it started leaking rusty water. On the plus it's still under manufacturers warranty. I hope they cover whatever is wrong with it. On the bad side... How am I going to get everyone to and from school with my car in the shop. Ug. (and DH forgot to make an appointment.)

It's your heater core. The trooper did that earlier this year, or was it last year? I can't remember when, but I know it was the heater core that went out.

Well, we are now officially a one car family and : at the same time! My eyes got all big and dreamy when I was counting the cash, but we are putting it away in the "future car" fund. Hopefully our current car will last a few more years and that tidy sum can grow a little bigger

I shouldn't be on here, but I'm taking a little break in the frantic race to get ready to fly away in the morning. Probably won't see y'all until Wednesday sometime. Have a good weekend, everyone!

I just found out from Lucky that if he is still having too much pain after his "Restricted Duty for One Month" is up, then they're going to let him go!!! He's been at the company for 10 years! His orthopedist can't find anything wrong with him. We think he's got fibromyalgia, but he can't find a doctor that knows anything about it. I don't know what we'll do if he loses his job. :

Well, Sprogly passed out about an hour ago with a belly full of food. Housemate's child is passed out in the next room, snoring and loudly sucking a pacifier, which makes me nostalgic for when Sprogly used to do that. I can't decide whether to watch a movie on my computer, or read myself to sleep. Choices, choices. Maybe some herb tea.

I think...read. With my snuggly warm boy next to me.

did they check his vitamin D levels? Such a big contributor to pain syndromes.
