Mamabeakley, happy birthday to your ds2!!! Good luck w/your job interview. i'm sure you'll be amazing. And I'm sorry to hear of your loss.

Not too much new on our front. We attended a family game night at our church last night - it was fun for all. The kids did great, even LO was having a grand time playing Candy Land & Go Fish.

We are having a strange thing going on w/dd(age 6) that I'd love to get your thoughts on. For the past couple of weeks she has been super-sensitive, crying at the drop of a hat, feelings very easily hurt, everything is a tragedy, and always focusing on the negative. At first I thought she wasn't feeling well, maybe on the verge of coming down w/something. But nothing has happened. There is no extra stress going on in her life that I am aware of. In fact things are great at home now that dh has had his surgery. We've tried talking to her about what might be troubling her. She may site an example of something minor w/kids at school, but that's all. (We have good communication w/her kindergarten teacher, so if there was an issue I know she would let us know.) We try to redirect her & empowere her to change the way she is thinking. It works in the moment, but the sensitivity soon returns. It's got us a bit . I do remember going through a phase like this last year, and she bounced back after a bit. She is an very kind, sensitive girl. I think sometimes she just gets overwhelmed.

Mamabeakely- Happy Birthday to your little man! What are your plans for the day? I'm feeling a bit sentimental today about her birthday.

I cannot believe that our May babies are turning four! Unbelievable. I am so happy and lucky to have all you mamas in my life. Really. I love that you all "get" me, when others don't, lol. I so hope that someday we can all meet, wouldn't that be fantastic??!!!

I just finished making Alayna's Tinkerbelle cake, I'll post a pic later. We are having DH's family over this afternoon for supper and cake. Lots of stuff to get done.

Have a wonderful day, and Happy Birthday to Mamabeakley's little guy and Alayna's!!!!

Max--this is just my experience, so feel free to regard or disregard. Basically, children's chakras are more open than adults'--that's why they feel things so deeply. It can be hard for them to block out negativity. You could practice with her, how to put up an energy shield around her body. Visualize white light from head to toe, all the bad stuff going from her body as you count to 20. You can do this in the name of God of course. Then when she is comfortable with it, she can put the shield (white or blue) around herself in situations where it's necessary (peers teasing, disturbing situations on TV, etc). I hope that helps.

Happy birthday to Mamab & your little guy! Do you guys share the same birthday too?

And happy birthday to Alayna!

Max, I have no idea what things upset 6 year olds. I hope she's happier soon.

Happy birthday Alayna and Mama Beakley's LO!

Phoebe CAN'T WAIT for her birthday. I love that she has enough of a sense of numbers that I can say it's in 12 days, and yesterday it was 13. As we get closer she'll really be able to understand a countdown. My parents are coming that weekend, so it will be pretty exciting. It's pretty fun that this is the first year she knows that she will get gifts specifically for her and is making requests--a dress made by me with flowers, polka dots, stripes, and lots of twirling and a toy semi truck that she can put things in. I LOVE the dichotomy.

I made us a new thread over here.

Hey TxMominCt - good to hear from you! And CONGRATULATIONS on your wonderful news! How very exciting. I am so happy for you. How's all been in your life?

 

(Oh, and this is the old thread. There is a newer one somewhere if you can find it. That will give you some more current updates on the may mama clan.)
