The woes of the average Kindergartener. We think they have it so easy get on the bus, arrive at school learn and play then come back home. It seems that in between there are multiple layers of young stress that I am just not fully grasping. Today, I was told by my 6-year-old that I needed to give her a little break because she had a stressful day at school. Hmmmm, all 3 hours of it? I mean, come on now.
Yesterday, as my little cherub got off of the bus in the afternoon, the bus driver said something to her that I did not hear. What I did hear was “we all have to be nice”. Uh Oh….if it had been a major issue the driver would have looped me but since she did not I knew it was minor. As soon as we got into the house I asked Madi what happened that she needs to be nice. Of course the quick reply was “nothing”.
It did not take long before I had the answer. Baby head…seems like such a harmless word combo but to 6-year-old bus riders coming home from what I am not told is a very stressful day it is enough to almost cause a real brewhaha. Seems that a little girl kept poking Madison which she did not appreciate. Instead of the many choices she could have made she explained to me that she “snapped” (her word) and called the girl baby head. The offended little girl did what mine should have and told the bus driver.
I googled “baby head” and the images were a bit disturbing.
We once again covered proper, expected behavior. We shall see I guess.
Since Christmas I have been under the weather but between ultrasounds, biopsies, a sick hubby and sick kids I have done little more than take a few Tylenol. By yesterday my head was throbbing, I could barely hear out of my left ear and when I cough I do believe my head might just split open. I called the doctor and got and appointment for today. I was not surprised to hear that I had a sinus infection. I was a little surprised to also have and ear infection but guess it makes sense. Now armed with a steroid pack and antibiotics I can only hope that tomorrow brings with it a little relief!
It will be midnight in an hour so the official countdown for Disney is 23 days….anticipation!
