Apparently everything is irritating me today. Or maybe it's just my dh. Not sure why. He's a good dh and I can't pinpoint why he's irritating today - but he is.
is he breathing?
I find when I'm tired everything irritates me. (there's the normal 'I haven't slept in four months tired' and there's 'my eyes are burning I can't think/stand tired')
I love mine. I'm thankful he works so I don't. BUT do not tell me, who was up more times than I can count last night, 'i'm tired'. IF you are tired, GO TO SLEEP!
(transiting to crib, and I think part of the issue is dd likes it warmer than I do, I had the heater turned a few degrees lower. I've finally figured out, when she wakes, it's ALWAYS right before the heater kicks on. Tonight, I put her in the sleep sack. We'll see if she sleeps better. Some of her pj's are lighter than others and a few are short sleeves. The sleep sacks are nice and warm.)
Sarah, is everything ok with your day care situation??
No. She has cancer. Stage 1 breast cancer. The plan is to remove the tumor (just the tumor) and then do 3 weeks of radiation. So she'll be out the month of March for all of that. I hope that's it - it sounds like that WILL be it. They caught it so soon that they barely detected it, THANK GOD.
BUT that means I'm out of daycare for a month. Considering how I absolutely HATE leaving him to go to work, I don't really want to find a new daycare for a month with a stranger. (I knew this lady before and we just love her.) We're going to see if I can get home early some days, have dh maybe take some time off work (taking off as a teacher, as you know, is difficult for more than a day at a time). My sister is our back-up, and she's watched him a couple random days when our daycare lady was at her last appointments, but I think 3 weeks (I have spring break in March, so it's really 3ish weeks we'll have issues) might be asking too much as she has 4 kids and is insanely busy the way it is.
Yeah, I'm really bummed. I sure hope she's ok. She's crushed that she won't have "her babies" around. I told her we'd visit her when she felt up to it and she looked so grateful. She has a wonderful husband and 7 wonderful supportive daughters (some that live close), so she has an excellent support system. And she's very healthy otherwise. I feel horrible worrying about where to take N (even though it's a valid concern) - because she has so much more to worry about.
Cancer sucks, no other way to sugar coat that one...and radiation can be very tough....I hope you can find some back up care for the little guy, as you never know what will happen in the future when the nasty C word comes into play I had planned on going back to work 3 months after my treatment and had to take a leave of absence for a year because my doc wouldn't give me medical release to return, nor was I physically able to...yeah, Cancer just Sucks...and so does having a child care issue
So...I have someone willing to take N. It's not the MOST ideal situation, but it's not bad. And it's my SIL's sister (my brother's wife's sister), so it's someone I know a little (even though N doesn't know her). She lives in the town I work in (40 minutes from my home - N is in daycare near our home now), and she's actually a little cheaper than my current daycare.
Parents that are so uninterested in their child's education that they do nothing but demand that you explain why their child failed. REALLY!!!!!!! Be more involved and you will know that your child is failing before progress reports or report cards come out. Believe me, IT.IS.NOT.THE.TEACHER'S.FAULT.WHEN.YOUR.CHILD.FAILS.!!!
AMEN, T, AMEN!!
My favorite is when they have no idea that their child is doing so poorly...Um...hello...parent, do you ever look in your kid's backpack and/or at all the graded papers that come home?!
Backpack!?!?!?!?!? What the h#ll is that? Oh, a parent is suppose to look in that?
It is insane, Deb, just totally insane. Nothing we have tried to help parents be informed has worked. We have an online gradebook that parents can check their child's progress on and we have a minimal number of parents that even bother to get a password.
I know, E, but the parent still has to bother to look at it, right?
Today, it was kids that refuse to listen to instructions and advice on how to do work and prepare for tests and have had work that we did on Tuesday that was homework Tuesday night that they did not have done.......
