It's been a long, long day

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Today has just not been fun. It's not been super bad, per se, but it's been long and stressful and just not fun. I fully admit and embrace that I just hit the "I don't care" point today and stopped worrying about wha tI was eating. I don't think it's been horrible, but I can guarantee that I'm over my max calories. But I'll live. And not getting home for the evening until almost 7 pm, and having to feed the child (we stopped at Chick-Fil-A - not the best) and then get her homework done and get her down and deal with a few things from school - I was lucky to get my bootcamp workout done. Cardio just didn't happen, and won't. I'm way too tired. Not the best answer, but it's what I've got right now. Tomorrow will be better. Right?

The worst? Finally getting my little one to talk to me about school, and finding out that since she's moved to this school, she doesn't really have any friends. She spends most of her recesses alone, and even her cousin (my nephew), who she's really close to outside of school, doesn't talk to her much. I don't expect him to be with her all of the time, but I don't expect him to run away from her, either. It just breaks my heart and makes me cry. I just hope things get better for her. I can't stand the thought that she's lonely at school.

    Awww..poor little one :( I've got a little one that I'm worrying about too..and she's not even my kid! I have a few kids in my class whose parents made it a goal for their child to have at least three friends by Christmas...for one it's worked somewhat, but it's more for his mother's happiness than his--he doesn't CARE if he has friends or not. Because of it though, I talked to ALL the kids about how we can be and make good friends, and how important it is to have all sorts of friends--those you are BFFs with and those who you hang out with here and there... We did a LOT of role playing--which is awkward when you are a grown up and know what the expected outcome ought to's more horrible to witness when you're just the observer! It's so hard to watch them struggle with the social aspect of things... It wasn't easy when we were going thru it either! Maybe start being the mom who makes playdates with other girls in her class that she mentions.. I'm not a mom--I dunno how that stuff works!! Is there a book on this stuff? Hugs to your kidlet tho--hoping she finds her niche soon!!

I like that you said "Tomorrow will be better" because it will-- we get a clean slate every single morning! How amazing is that!
