This week has been absolutely CRAZY! I've made it to Friday. Not much going on today work wise, so I hope to get a few loose ends tied up.
Monday started off with my daughter being sick. Both kids made it into the play and my son had play practice Monday and last night, Tuesday cub scouts and then Wednesday of course dance for my daughter. Tuesday night I had college orientation! I'm so excited. Wednesday night we had a bully seminar at the school, which really didn't help us much because yesterday a little big girl attacked my son on the playground. Now my son is a nice boy, he's like 65 pounds, little to average for his age. These kids that are hitting their growth spurts now are like 2x his size. This girl is as big as a lady. She apparently pushed him down and kicked him several times. Seriously! And for what?! So I'll be in the principals office this morning. I tried to get out of my son what the previous interaction was if any.. could he have offended her in some way? not that this makes her actions okay but it might give me insight into her state of mind. I said did you tell her she was pretty pay her a compliment? anything? he says no.. she walked over pushed me and I fell and then she kicked me and several other girls apparently came over and did the same to which the recess monitors yelled "hey, hey" and that was the end of it. Really? Maybe I'm over reacting but he could have been internally bleeding! How is this okay in any way, shape or form? I'm out of my mind.. sorry. So this bullying has brought me all sorts of horrible emotions this week. Then last night a PTA meeting. You know I'm very involved in the school, which is why I'm so beside myself when things go wrong. Good news on that front, I'm going part time on my helping out for my chair in the PTA. I found a lady to share my chair with me, so that's positive!!! Also on another positive note I got a volunteer position that I need for school. I have to have 50 hours 25 at an in-patient facility and 25 at an out-patient facility and I have to get that done this semester. I'm excited because I thought I'd have to go buy clothes, well I found some things in the back of my closet that fit! woohoo!!!! and I don't have to buy anything!
So this weeks positives:
* volunteer position
* starting school next week (I'm so excited)
* found a co-chair for my PTA position
and of course My terrific husband and loving supportive kids.
Please pray for my son in this difficult time. I'm not sure what is going on, this girl is the newest in a string of things that have happened to him. Does this happen to everyone?
