Flat boobs, chocolate and old age

Tc asked me today...
"mom why are your boobs flat?"
My answer, "They are not, they are saggy!"

Tc said earlier,
"Oh I need some cookies to feel better."

Does chocolate not make things better??

I was up at 4 a.m. with a sinus headache this morning.
After everybody got home, I laid down by the Hubby for about an hour.
Sara said, "Dang mom! You and Dad are old. You both took a nap today!"
I then told her I was up at 4 a.m. Sheesh!!!

Do not judge me

I was going to type out a post about another recent comment I got in regards to my parenting of TC. Here is the thing, I am not going to waste my time because some vulture wants to go for the jugular on my parenting skills.

Let me just say that:
When I see my son's face smiling and hear him singing happily...I am grateful.

When I am able to cut his hair on the front porch (something that used to be horrid), I am grateful.

When I see his wonderful drawings of Spiderman...I am grateful.

When I have an IEP without crying .....I am grateful.

I can walk into a store and see a parent struggling with a tantruming and I can be compassionate and non-judging. And I can see that they are grateful for the smile, or the nod, or the look on my face.

I can get frustrated with things, especially TC's behavior but I stick it out and pray for a better tomorrow.
And I continue to do my best even if some days my best does not feel good enough.

Thankfully I have some great people who understand what it is like day in and day out and those who want to judge me can kiss my you know what!

New week, sick kid, and no insurance

TC's behavior was much better today. Thank the Lord!!! We didn't do much other than watch movies, do laundry, and hang out at the house. He and Sara spent the whole day together.

Sara has been not feeling too well but I am trying to give her otc meds til' I get insurance. I applied for Chips but haven't received approval yet. A dr. visit could cost up to $100 and meds could be $50 or more. Hurry up insurance!!!!

I have to go to the Tx Workforce tomorrow to some type of job search training. Sounds fun, huh?
I hope it goes quickly!

I am in week 7 of these classes. My classes last 9 weeks total. After I complete these two, I only have 2 more to go! Woot!!!

It's Saturday, cheer up!

OMG, TC was in a foul mood today.He got a swat as soon as he woke up for saying bad words!

We went to Home Depot to purchase a new mower. We got him a kids' meal at McD's and he was okay but he griped the whole entire time we were at Home Depot! UGH.

By the time we got home, I was OVER his behavior. I gave him a Melatonin and made him lay down. When he woke up about an hour later, he was okay, still not in a great mood, but I had went to get pizza so he ate some. He is watching Spiderman now and seems to be happier. Thank God.

Fun day

Sara was at my sister's all day today.
TC's friend Jamel came over and stayed for hours and hours.
They had lots of fun!

To the anon comment that was left about kids learning first at home about cussing. First of all, my son goes to daycare and has his entire life. Which means he goes with kids as old as 13 on the bus. This is when he first came home saying bad words.
I am not perfect and I do slip occasionally but I try not to curse in front of TC.
I guess you are perfect, huh???

Thanks for your opinion but since you did not have enough balls to leave your name, you can kiss my big toe.

Update on cussing

I picked TC up from the bus this afternoon. I asked him was he good today and he said, "No, I was in trouble for saying a bad word." I told him I knew and his teacher told me all about it.
I made him write a note to his teacher when he got home..I made him copy what I had written since he can't spell.
Basically it said he was sorry and signed Love, Tony.

He knows we are upset with his behavior and he is very very sorry.
I told him I am not putting up with his saying bad words.

He really wants a Spider man guy and I told him he will not get it unless he starts behaving at school.

Another visit to the office for TC

Ugh. TC's teacher just e mailed me saying that TC was sent to the office again for saying a bad word.
I have reprimanded him all weekend as well. I think when he comes home we are going to have a long long talk about appropriate language. I hope it sinks in.

I have been busy today. I bought groceries after dropping the kids off for school.
Today I have painted a lot. I painted TC's room, all the window trim in the dining room and living room, and the kid's bathroom. I have done laundry and I need to re-load the dishwasher. Then off to get TC from the bus.

Pray for me!

Early Saturday morning, TC woke up with his asthma. So we did a breathing treatment but he was still upset. I told him a story about Little Red Riding Hood and he really liked it! By this time it was 5:30 am and we had been up for an hour already. We went back to sleep and did not get up til' 10:30!!!

We went to Walmart to get Sara a fishing pole. I hate going to Walmart with my family! I hate it!!!
But we made it out alive.

Today our plans are to stay home and chill out!
What about you??

New day

Today went better Thank God. TC got up in a decent mood and we did not have to deal with a nosebleed. I did three loads of laundry and I have painted a little bit in the kitchen and I am about to head to the store. Then I will come home and mow for a couple of hours.

I am thanking God today that the sun is shining and that I am going to be okay. Even the darkest days can be a lot to handle and I wonder if I can make it through. I am working on not letting other people get to me but it is difficult. Especially when that someone always wants to take their miseries out on me.

Today was not a good day

TC has been out of sorts all week. I got an e mail from his teacher today saying he called her a bit*h. I had already had a very rough morning, so this was just icing on the cake.

I picked him up from school and took him to McDonald's where we had a talk about not saying bad words. He actually has been very good this evening.

Today has not been a good day at all. I have cried for hours...lots of things going on and most of them not very good.

IEP update

I had an IEP today. It went well. TC is still having a few problems with back and forth conversation but he is making great progress. His behavior is not a problem at all. He has been going into a mainstream class and he does resource math and reading. More than likely he will do ESY (extended school year) again this summer. Hopefully I will still be home and not back to work but we will take it one day at a time as we always do!

I came home and mowed and I need to mow a lot more! But I have homework and housework and all that fun stuff. Hope you all have a wonderful day!
