We had our long and intense conference today with the teacher and the principal of the preschool. We are keeping him there for now anyway. We all have about the same approach, although they may be a little nicer than me when the Creature starts calling people names and telling his teacher to "shut up!" I think they know that we try to always speak kindly to each other but anything negative this child has ever heard, he remembers and always uses it properly in a sentence. The teacher told me things he has told her, things that we did, outings we had, some of those things happened when he was under 2 years old. Never think your child won't remember stuff that happens when they are a baby. We have no way of knowing who will remember what. I have a really challenging little kid, but God decided he's my kid and I'm learning a lot about patience and a lot about being open to the big plan for me--that I obviously have no control over.
- I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
