Do you ever have a week that just seems hard? Maybe it's nothing out of the ordinary, just hard. I have to keep reminding myself that life wasn't intended to be easy...that would take all the fun out of it. Mama Haas, I really liked your quote. It got me thinking about some problems I am dealing with and how I expect a single action to fix everything, but that's not how things work. In order to loose weight we have to be consistently good about what we put in our bodies, and the same concept applies for any other result we are striving for.
So, here's what's got me down...
I found out that my 6 year old has been getting in trouble every day at school, since school began on Tuesday. He's beating himself up over it, and so am I. I'm not sure what to do, or what's going on...but I do know I am going to have to request a meeting with his teacher and shoulder the weight of it on my own since my honey is out for a bit. This really stresses me out. I often jump to conclusions...and the voice in my mind sounds like this...
"He's going to struggle through school, drop out, and be homeless."
Silly, I know, but with a husband who's too busy to talk at the moment, I find my sounding board of reason temporarily missing.
He's a good kid, but he's impulsive too...just like me. Last year his teacher was so patient and loving toward him. This year, from what I know about this teacher, it's going to be a different story. He also has a snorting issue, one we have been trying to get to the bottom of for the past 2 years. We have been doing allergy shots for the past year to try and help him, but it hasn't made a difference. I just took him to the ent this week, and hopefully we will get some answers. The girl who sits next to him in class was making fun of him, and on Friday, while she was teasing him, my son responded to her by telling her he couldn't help his snorting, and the teacher caught him talking and sent him out of the classroom to sit in the hall. He's so down on himself, and his behavior this weekend has been just horrible.
Do you have any advice?
Anyway, thanks for listening and being my sounding board. I feel better.
