random....once again...

The girls and I went over to school today, and boy did we have a fun time! We met with the school nurse, took a tour of the school, met with the principal, and the best....hung out with Mrs. S!!!!! She is super super sweet. She is everything that I would want in a teacher for my daughter. She is seasoned, she is kind, she is soft spoken, she is energetic, and she is informed. She has taken on the allergy issue, and has done her darndest to make her classroom plastered with allergy "stuff". She has educated herself about Avery, and wants her to have the best, safest kindergarten year. I won't go into the details about the safety precautions her school takes for allergies. That will be a new post all together. I'll just say this....I feel safe with Avery being there. period.

I had a whim to go to BIG CITY again today. I bought Avery these adorable dresses at Gymboree yesterday, but I just couldn't stomach the price that I paid. So, I packed up the girls and off we went. It was fun, but also miserable at the same time. Liv seriously is a maniac. I don't know how to parent the child when we are out of our house. She is everywhere, she is LOUD, she is unbearable. And, then when Avery is there to "try and make her happy", it just makes it that much worse.

With Avery, I would always look at "those" moms and pity them. How do they go out in public? Man, their kid is so naughty! Must be bad parenting.... NOW I KNOW! Good grief.....it'll be amazing if we make it till she's in school. And then, man, whomever gets her in school.....good luck! The staff at Avery's school just looked at Liv today with their mouths open. What kid is like this??? Um, mine...yup, she's mine...oh, and did I mention, she's a pastor's kid? Yup, she can pray before mealtimes, but she can also scream so loud that you can hear her from the nursery when her daddy's preaching...that's my girl....

We are now home, and boy am I glad. Liv was upset with me most of the ride home. Wanna know why? Well, it's because I wouldn't pull of the interstate so she could touch the cows and horses that we were passing by......SERIOUSLY???? Ugh.... She is in her crib right now, sleeping all her crabbiness away (I hope)...

What an amazing school!!! I have never heard of a school that goes through all that for a child with allergies. What a comforting feeling that must be for you. It certianly puts into perspective the idea that children are supposed to be safe in school. At least Avery will have no problem in that department. Glad to hear it too. :-)

On your daughter--I think it proves nature is sometimes more powerful than nurture. My girls and oldest son are some of the sweetest, most well behaved kids (and my son being the most of the three) but my the baby is OUT OF CONTROL. We don't even eat out any more and any trip in public with him is very very very short (shorter than this comment!)

My son (3 1/2) is like your Liv. It's what makes him - him, I guess. I have to believe that the Lord gifted him to me for a reason. Someday, his strong personality and type-a traits will take him to great places. For now, I try not rationalize with a 3-year old...it's just not healthy! And, I remind myself often that I am (indeed) his mother....and that's not by accident!
