Fairly calm and normal
Bee sting to daughter's finger. Inflamed, red and itchy :(
one child in her class knows that it is "the" finger, though none of the others knows what that means. He says but Ms. Mara (the teacher) it is her middle one and she looks like she is doing you know what. Good thing only Ms. Mara and I know what he is talking about!
Daughter still very swollen and red.
Son hit in face, right under the eye, almost needed a stitch, by flying book....
slightly provoked by lightly saying "haha" when classmate is called on to answer first. The other child calls him tonight to apologize again. Here is how the conversation goes: (or at least what I hear of it)
Son: hey man, it's ok. I mean we all have trouble sometimes controlling our emotions.
Son: man, don't worry. I am ok.
Son: man, it's ok. I'll see you tomorrow.
Ok, first, where is the "man" coming from? He is growing up WAY too quickly! That should be reserved for the teen crowd, right?!
and second, "we all have trouble controlling our emotions"..... once again, my ever so mature 9 year old never ceases to amaze me :)
Please let Thursday and Friday be more like Monday
