Making it!

Posted by Mandy at 7:29 AM
Sorry for not posting lately. Clayton left Thursday to go to Iowa on a hunting trip and he's just now going to get home today. (Tuesday) Handling the kids totally alone, on top of throwing up constantly has taken its toll on me. I'm just sick and tired and tired of being sick and tired. lol I think when he gets home and takes up his normal 'jobs' I'll feel a ton better. Hats off to single mothers.. though I feel like a single mom a lot of the time... when Clayton's actually totally gone like this I realize how much he really does do around here!

So, an update on me. I'm 8 weeks along TODAY and though I'm pretty sick it's still nothing that I feel I can complain about. I guess once you've been in the depths of morning sickness hell before, the 'normal' morning sickness just isn't a big deal to you. I'm anxiously awaiting my Dr's appt next week. It can't get here fast enough. I have butterflies in my stomach thinking about it.. I'm a nervous wreck. I just pray I get a great ultrasound that shows a perfect healthy baby. I also hope it makes this baby real to me. I still am just feeling numb to all of this. I figured by this point it'd have sunk in but it hasn't. When anyone asks me about being pregnant I almost forget that I am! I'm just ready to start showing and feel the baby move and all of that stuff. It'll be a while before any of that happens though!

Well, I officially became "that" mother. I sent an email to Madison's teacher about the little (okay.. he's huge) boy that sits across the table from her in class. He's a big bully and I'd had enough of it. He was tearing up Madison's things, physically hurting her, and calling her a "crybaby" if she'd get upset about it. So I asked the teacher (in a very nicely written way by the way) if she would please move one of them to a different table because madison was terrified of this child and was crying every morning not wanting to go to school because of him. The very next day the teacher moved him! Now a sweet little girl sits across from Madison. :) Thumbs up for a quick action taken on the teacher's part! I don't know why I hesitated to write the letter... I guess i didn't want to step on the teacher's toes by making suggestions about how she runs her classroom, but enough is enough. Momma Bear eventually has to come out and not worry about anything other than her child!

Good for you Mom (coming from a teacher). Please don't think you are ever a pest to a teacher because you are concerned about the welfare of your child. I am glad that quick action was taken.

Amen to what Lou said!

Ditto... to Lou and Leeann's comments...Never hesitate to help your teacher understand there is a problem. A good teacher worth her/his salt will welcome your input...good communication is so necessary. :)

Good for you!! I think too often, parents think a teacher would be insulted if you as for things that affect your child's welfare. That shouldn't be the case. A teacher should be just as concerned.

wow! look at all those great teachers' commenting! i love it....and i love great teachers! (i'm married to one, too!) lol!

It's so reassuring for all of my teacher buddies to say that! Thanks so much!! You just hear so often how pushy some parents can be that DO insult the teacher... I just want to be sure I'm never that parent I guess. I think I'm one of the few ppl left on the planet that really does truly appreciate the job all of you guys do, I know i could never do it. Seriously!

Weren't you just wishing last week to have morning sickness, now you want to hurry up to the showing part...slow down and enjoy it. I know with my next and last I will savor each and every moment (okay not the pucky ones).

lol.. well I don't really mind the reassurance of m/s.. but throwing up constantly is a bit excessive for what I was requesting lol. I guess when you've wanted a baby for so long.. being pg isn't the 'prize' you're looking for.. the baby at the end is.. I'm ready for the baby to be here lol
