So much for a full day...

Okay, so Cody's first full day of Junior Kindergarten was a total flop. In the end, he went but I got a call around 10:15 a.m. that he was not feeling well and wanted me to come and get him. So I did. The whole thing was very stressful because I am 100% sure the real problem was that he was afraid. He was nervous about being there the whole day and gave himself a tummy ache as a result. I was totally torn about what to do. On the one hand, I told him if he ever felt sick he should tell the teacher and I could come and get him any time. I did not want to refuse to bring him home because I feel like he needs that security of knowing I am not going to abandon him when he needs me. On the other hand, I don't want him to think he can just say he feels sick and I will come running and take him out of school whenever he feels like it. In the end, I brought him home, but I could see the inner battle he was fighting. He really wanted to stay, but he wanted me to stay with him. Now I don't know whether it is best to forget the full days for now and try again later, or whether I should push him through one day. Usually with Cody, it takes pushing him through something once and after that he does great. I am a little discouraged about the situation.

Incidentally, all of my plans were shot because the day did not go the way it was supposed to. I did not do a workout, and today I feel pretty awful physically. I am waiting another thirteen minutes and then I am changing Micah's diaper, putting him to bed, putting the TV on for the boys and going to bed myself. I have a terrible headache today and I am just exhausted. This is one of those rare days when I will be using TV as a baby sitter. I have it programmed to show appropriate shows, so it is not like they will be watching just anything, and today I have little choice. I hope Micah sleeps. If he does not, I am up the creek.

So, I have to go as Jamie is hollering for help in the bathroom. I am counting down the minutes til I can crawl into my bed. Bye for now.
