Happy Mother's Day

This weekend I have tried to spend some time with my favorite kids. I said all I wanted for Mothers Day weekend was to collect my favs and spend a little time with each of them. Unfortunately, the weekend ran out before I could get to them all. I truly enjoy C's friends and watching them grow up. At one point yesterday we had six kids sitting around our big sectional couch. I looked at Todd and said "Look at this group and then imagine that some people have families like this!" He commented that he was quite thankful that three of them were on loan. ha!

I remember when I was a kid my mom and her friends would take several of us to the lake or the pool or whatever and all the kids would hang out and play while the moms visited. That was another time for sure as people are too busy to do that now.

Mad as hell

This story makes me mad as hell. I've taken a lot of shit for being overprotective of Christopher but dammit, I did not have to worry about him being murdered while riding his bike with a friend. Why?? Because he was not allowed to leave the street directly in front of our house! And you know what??? He is STILL NOT!! If he rides his bike off his street, I am with him. It's not a popular decision but it's mine to make. I cannot even fathom letting two pretty little girls take off alone. My God, it just makes me so sick to think of the terror they experienced. Sick and mad.

Another sign the boy is growing up

He's at his first dance tonight. I went out to pick him up and his friend Matthew said I couldn't take him yet. Apparently they have grand plans to win the dodgeball tournament that started when the dancing stopped. I wish I had their energy. I just want to be in bed right now.

Christopher said he danced with a girl and it was stupid. I just hope he never develops his dad's dancing skills. He only danced when he was drunk and usually ended up with his pants around his ankles at some point. It's a redneck thing. Anyway....

I am soooooo tired. Hopefully he's ready to come home now. I was informed tonight that high school dances last until 3AM. I'm too old for this.

It seems as though someone is playing a little game between myself and Christopher's dad and stepmom. This needs to stop right now. Four people with different parenting methods are going to have a difficult time at best when it comes to working together. We do not need external forces with their own agenda getting in our business. What seems like a fun little game of gossip and story telling to you goes much deeper than that. It's my son's life. If you cannot support our goal to raise him to be a healthy, happy, well rounded and respectful kid, then step off. Take your game back to your own house. Thank you.

Woke up at 2AM with this sense that something bad is heading this way and knowing that no matter what it is or on which front it hits, I will be the one to have to deal with it. Part of it I suppose is falling asleep thinking how unfair it is that Todd doesn't get days off if a holiday falls during the week. It's always been like that but still, it gets old and frustrating.

Maybe I'll nail down a summer vacation schedule today. I've taken three weeks of vacation in six years and only one of those weeks was a non-working vacation. Perhaps I should start using what I've accumulated and practice being a slouch.
