Haha, I guess I just feel smothered. He is a friend, but that's it, and though I think he knows he is just a friend, he's doing that thing where you still want to spend as much time as possible with the object of your affection. Meanwhile hanging out with him feels like hanging out with a ticking time bomb at this point, due to blow up in my face anytime now. He'll either come out with it, or get the wrong idea, and the awkwardness will increase tenfold!
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 don't think there is anything you could have done to affect her maturity issues. She'll mature when she matures...not much can be done to hurry that.
BUT...From what you've been saying about her the last 5 years, she sounds really bright. I'd probably send her anyway. I think she'll surprise you and knuckle down.
For a boy with maturity issues, I'd probably keep him home an extra year.
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!
Yum. Are you willing to not make a cup of tea for me??
My thought all started because I have recently been invited to a babyshower and I'm not going to go. The person who invited me is nice enough and I have no issues with her but I just don't have the desire to go. I have been asked why by someone else...I just shrugged my shoulders and said, "I just don't want to go."
I can be in a room full of people and I won't really talk to anyone or interact on my own. I will speak if spoke to. I will be pleasant enough, answer any questions, but am quiet beyond that. I'm not stuck up, not depressed or anti/asocial...I just don't really feel like interacting if I don't have to.
It's absolutely impossible that I'm getting a fever blister the day before my husband comes home.
Really? Really?! Really. I better be wrong.
Byron,GA> Charleston, SC> Jacksonville, FL> Guilford, CT> Rohnert Park, CA! A southern drawl in sunny Cali! . The amount of time from slipping on the peel and landing on the pavement is exactly one bananosecond. I do have a secret yen for pink in unexpected places. ~ninja dog
I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
Oh, hush, kayb. I have simply repaid (in small part) the remarkable kindness shown to me by members of the site, including the one who is still keeping her middle name a secret, though everyone else, including me, has shared.
Oh, my head! I haven't done that in a while.
The trouble with dim sum is you really need a large group to maximize the experience. At least four people are needed to make it happen. Assuming I could somehow manage to get my family to Flushing in the morning, it would have to be on a weekend, which means contending with the crowds. And then there would be dealing with my dad, who wouldn't eat a single thing because he is sure any food other than Dominican is bad for his stomach (yet, it does not occur to him that downing two donuts at DD is not a great idea, along with a bunch of other selective bs).
Though Flushing is a bit far from me. Some places in Chinatown have awesome deals for dim sum.
