Oh, what a day!

Well, it has been interesting so far. At therapy they informed me that the munchkin has been having crying fits- (I affectionately call them tantrums) and that they can't do therapy because he is screaming so much. Then they asked me if I knew how to control them-Ummm, no that's the main problem in our house! They also asked me if there was a better time in the day when we could do therapy, when he is in a better mood. Ummmm, no again, it's pretty much whenever you can catch him (or his twin for that matter) in a good mood and if you give him his way.

Then, when I got home I got an e-mail from The Prince's teacher reporting that he is not doing what he is supposed to be doing in school today.

Then, I got a call from my Dad, he was in a bad mood from something that went on today so that brings me down.

And then, finally (well for now anyway) I got a call from the Prince's step-mom saying that football practice would be starting tomorrow and she would come and pick him up at 4:30 then take him to practice at 6:00 and then return him at 7:15 on my weeks, two times per week. And then games are on Friday's. Ummm, I don't think so! I will be taking him to practice on my weeks so that will be an added stress, but at least I am not without my boy for that many hours. I am extremely selfish with my time with my boy. His friends always want him to come over to play and I have the hardest time letting him go. I only see him half the time in a month already, it is so hard to relinquish any extra time that I may have with him.

As I was writing this my best friend from Boston called me. When I heard her voice I started crying. I told her all about my terrible day and just talking to her made me feel better.

I just got off the phone with another friend and we are going to have a playdate tomorrow. The Lord sure knew who to send me to change my day from terrible to much better. Thank you friends!!!

Sorry about your rough day. Sometimes it is hard to be everyone's encourager, trainer, supporter.... You are doing a great job. I'm glad you are surrounded by friends to lift you up.

I'm sorry you had a horrible day. I'll cheer you up at the park tomorrow. Reese's peices maybe? :)

I like how Kelly bribed you with food in her comment - that's what friends are for huh?

Poor Munchkin and his fits - I'll be praying for him. . . and for you that you are getting enough time with the Prince.
