A morning nightmare for a mom, reviews for authors and AA New Leaf

Yesterday was horrid. My older boy refused to get out of bed thus missing his bus.  Says he’s sick but also is upset about current events at school.  Called Dr. they said they wouldn’t see him for a note for school. Who said I wanted a note? I yelled out loud alone in the car on my way home from dropping my younger son off at school 20 minutes away. I said terrible things about that person at the Dr.’s office who told the Dr. I wanted a note thus barring me from getting medical help for my son. Got home talked to my son, figures he ISN’T sick.  Took him to school, went to the grocery store to stock up on food for both boys (limited amount, money is tight right now), came home, put groceries away and got in bed. Stayed there for the whole day until it was time to go pick up my younger son.  I figured if I was in bed with the sheet over my head, nothing bad would happen.  Glad the rest of the day went smooth- well, as smooth as can be expected.  It is so much FUN being a MOM. I love my children and will forever, no matter how much gray hair sprouts from my head. On hot days it’s nice to get lost in a video game with my boys, Animal Crossing: New Leaf! Hugs and personal bubbles, Colleen

Today is a busy day. Drive to drop my youngest son off at school (takes twenty minutes each way), go to allergist and he gets his shots (one in each arm!), go home, eat then do homework, dinner, take care of his brother, then head out EARLY to Back to School night. An hour early to find parking. On the first day of school, there was NO parking. We parked down this residential street a long ways away from the school.  We can go early and read or play Animal Crossing New Leaf together.  I didn’t sleep well last night and I would so love to crawl into bed right now. To rest my head on my pillow! Oh what a dream. That’s the perfect excuse to eat some Coffee Health Bar ICE CREAM! HA HA! Sounds good to me.  Okay I got my ice cream. Yum!  On the way to school today, my youngest son was eating a Jolly Rancher candy in place of brushing his teeth. No no no! Sweet watermelon breath doesn’t replace clean teeth! For reasons known only to nature, my youngest must wear deodorant. I bought “Tom’s” brand, ‘natural and long lasting without chemicals mountain spring scent’. But the child is so ticklish and he thinks I can get the wide container UP HIS SLEEVE and get some on his skin. I said it would be easier if I could apply it before he put his shirt on. Going up his sleeve is terrible! The deodorant is extra wide and a child’s sleeve isn’t.  What a day this is turning out to be. Anybody know what would make the difference in a 9/10 year old’s mind about saying ‘Peter Pan’ is okay to read but NEVER ‘Pinnochio’? Because that’s what he said, “NEVER” with a growl in reference to poor ‘Pinnochio’. He grabbed the Peter Pan book and took it to bed. Huh. The inner workings of the male mind are always beyond me but usually I can figure out some things but for this situation? Clueless with a big question mark over my head. Though I can say I saw ‘Peter Pan’ on stage when I was a kid.  And I didn’t know so much about special effects like I do now so it was awesome to see ‘Peter’ fly!
