I've been called a snob, because I'm introverted and don't talk a lot.

Oh Target. How do you manage to make me spend $120, and only walk out with 2 bags, and I STILL come back?

I'm not sure what I was thinking this morning with this little poofy thing at the top of my head. I look like a curly headed Snookie. Now all I need is the tan.

I think I've got a little eBay addiction. I've got things up for auction and I can't stop clicking over to my "selling" page to see if things have gotten more bids.

I may need an intervention.

I had Danae's school evaluation today, and her teacher doesn't feel like she's ready to start K5 next year. After hearing what she had to say, I'm inclined to agree, but I'm just a little sad. I guess I'm feeling a little bit of mommy guilt, as if I could've done more to get her ready. I know it's dumb; her issues are maturity ones (she'll just turn five in August when school starts). It's just a little frustrating because she's SO smart--she knows all her colors, numbers, letters, and she's starting to read like crazy. Yet she's so daydreamy and doesn't pay attention in class because she's off in her own little world. I feel torn; I could hope for the best and put her in K5 next year, but what if she can't focus and gets lost? Then I'll have to put her back and that seems worse than holding her back to begin with. I just don't know what to do.

I get that a lot as well. People take it as being "stuck up" instead of simply not having the gift of gab. It used to really hurt but I don't let it get to me anymore.

That's me too, and it doesn't help my natural face looks like a scowl. I look so mean!! I swear, I'm only mean when provoked!

LOL! Maybe that is part of my problem as well. I can't even count the number of times when complete strangers have told me to smile. Do I really look that mean all the time? I honestly don't think so.

I only know because I've seen myself on video when I wasn't aware I was being taped. It sucked. I can't change my face though so I just try and smile more because I'm generally a pretty happy person.

I'm sure there's nothing more you could have done. I have to tell you that reading that, my knee-jerk reaction was "but Danae is so smart". Everything you post about her confirms what a bright, clever child she is! She'll be even moreso in a year if you do decide to wait.

Don't feel bad. You have done a great job. D is a fantastic kid.

Ivy turned 5 3 weeks after she started K. She is a very smart kid but is VERY daydreamy, even now at 10 1/2. If I knew then what I know now I would have waited to put her in until the next year.

There have even been studies done that say that waiting to put the "younger" kids in until the next year gives them a better chance at being successful and that in general they get better grades than the kids who were put in earlier.

*sigh*

Sometimes I wish I were normal! I just don't really care about making friends. I don't want to mean or have enemies - but I don't care to hang out with anyone really....

Speckla! I was thinking this just now!

I was filing and thinking exactly the same thing!

Strange!

Wanna be friends? We don't have to hang out.

Sure. You brew a pot of coffee at your house, I'll brew one here and we'll not drink coffee together.

Is it ok if I just drink a coca-cola? I'm not big on coffee.

I'm willing to make tea for myself though!

I'm now left to not picking up the phone. I'm a bad liar. It's hard enough coming up with any excuse, much less a believable one for why I do not want to hang out with you. Heck, even with friends with whom I don't have the awkwardness of them liking me as more than a friend, I don't hang out with them every week, which is how it would be if I didn't find some way of getting out of outings with you!
