|big noise, little house|
September 9, 2008
Things here have been noisy and bordering on chaotic. Connor wants to run the show and I think as cute as he is, his momma ought to put the brakes on some of the behavior I have seen.
I know he's little and teething, but he whines a lot and almost screams when he doesn't get what he wants. But, to her credit, Daughter does smack his hands and uses NO. Connor knows what these mean. And I am glad for it. A lot of what I am seeing is due to laziness. The kid is extrememly curious (as he should be) but his momma needs to reign some of that in.
I guess I should mention, if she is on the computer, Connor is ignored and that bugs the SHIT out of me. The other thing is, there is a lot of stuff in here anyway and when their clothes and other belongings are added, it just messes with my head. We've got to work on that.
In other news, school is going well. I have a couple of projects to work on this weekend as does MB. I'm trying hard not to be too happy that things are going so well and I'm accomplishing everything without being frantic. I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop. In writing that, i've changed my mind, I'mnot going to wait, I am just going to take things assignment to assignment, do my best and move on. It'll be okay. I know I'm supposed to be doing this, that's why it is coming easy and without grief.
I talked to #1 today. He is doing well and just started another class at ITT. Seems he and the robotics professor hit it off and there could be some additional oportunities for him to excel. I am so happy for and proud of him. I know it's not easy working and going to school, but it can be done. I'm living proof.
Daughter has her dr's appt tomorrow and a job inteview. let's cross our fingers that she gets it because I need her to be working, like yesterday. I know that means Connor will have to go into daycare, but I th ink that's the lesser of the two evils.
MB and I are coping and doing our best. We continue to keep the lines of communication open; our hearts full of love and understanding.
I'm finished with what I needed to do in here, off to do some laundry...exciting isn't it?
