We had (as far as I can remember) no tears last night before bed nor this morning getting ready for school. But it is Friday. Maybe we both felt the lack of pressure? G did wake up at 5:24am though. She spent about 20mins in the bathroom then crawled back in bed at 5:40am (yes I am a clock watcher). All this after waking up somewhere around midnight (can't remember the time, though I did look) to come get in my bed. She also locked the cat up in her room because she didn't look for him before shutting the door. I heard him at 5:40am this morning, roughly 5 hours.
Thank goodness it is Friday. If it doesn't rain tomorrow we will go to the pool and swim for several hours. I have lots to do today and need to go have lunch with G to figure out how to keep her from sitting by the little girl named N. This child has no concept of personal space and begs food from G. It drives G crazy and me!
No sharing of food either way ever are my instructions to G. Long gone are the days to share nicely because you have no idea if someone could be allergic to something or if some mother says "no" to particular foods or whatnot. Plus N is on free lunch so really she shouldn't be begging food from G. And she isn't the only one begging chips or whatnot. She is just the main one.
Plus one year at this same school a little kindergartner brought his mother's psychotropic meds (for paranoid schizophrenia) to school and shared them with his friends. Lots of kids ended up in the hospital, while he and his siblings were removed from the home, placed in an unhealthy foster home, and placed under case management. It was bad. I have lectured, cajoled, explained, and begged G to not take things from nor offer things to other kids, ever.
Also found out I can no longer send peanut butter sandwiches for her lunch, drat! It is one of the more nutritious quick lunches I can send, so does anyone know a healthy-ish sub for peanut butter? Trust me I am not a health nut though I probably should be, but as G isn't really a meat eater, peanut butter was our standby.
