I See Light...Well...a Little...Maybe

Hey All!

Welp, today is my Friday. I've taken tomorrow off because my sweet awesome cousin is in town to visit us! Its perfect timing because I need a little break.

Work has been crazy stressful for the past week or so. In retail things are always busy, but there are obviously parts of the year that get a little crazier than others. We are basically 4-6 months ahead of the rest of you at all times. So while it's the middle of winter, we are ordering clothes for the fall season already. So its a little crazy town.

On top of that Boomer is still struggling with her ADHD and school. My little bit has very little impulse control. Meaning this. When someone upsets you, they say something, you process it, and then choose a reaction. For Boomer there really isn't processing. Its someone upsets you, so you immediately throw a pencil at them. Which results in a half day suspension because you've already gotten in to trouble for talking out of turn, disrupting class ect. You of course get this half day suspension in the middle of one of Mommy's busiest weeks at work. NBD. Once again so, so thankful for my mother. Don't know what I'd do without her.

So now Boomer's Dad, Mimi, and I have to make some decisions about how best to help our Boomer girl. She is so smart, funny, and full of good stuff. I don't want her internalizing that she is 'bad' or a problem, or stupid because she is struggling. Being a mommy is no joke!

Anywho, I'll be around tomorrow to vlog like a boss, and back up da booty. Maybe I'll get my cousiner to make a guest appearance. If you've read for awhile you've no doubt seen comments from 'The Queen'. That's her!

Until tomorrow!

I still throw pencils and fits when I'm upset - just thankfully I throw the pencil on the ground and make it look like a joke. *used sparingly*

I just wrote you an email aasking what did for a living, and you answered if in your post. Clearly something in the fashion world.. how chic!

I'm so sorry for the struggles Boomer is going through. It's hard enough as an adult, but when you're a kid, and still so unsure of yourself. Poor muffin. I hope you, the ex and Mimi are able to come up with a plan to better facilitate her feelings/help her get through this. No doubt you guys will come up with something

Boomer is lucky to have people that care so much about her. I have several friends who are teachers and I've heard horror stories about parents who will basically do NOTHING to help their children in situations like this.

Ordering clothes for next fall? Gah, it's crazy how early the seasons fall with designers and stores.

Catching up my blog reading and wanted to send good vibes on your parenting decisions. Kudos to you for coming up with a way to help Boomer understand that she isn't bad, just needs to find a healthy alternative to all that extra energy she has got going on.

Good vibes coming your way and hope your weekend was awesome with your cousin!

Oh no! I would totally throw things at people as an adult if I wouldn't get fired...I mean, she has the right idea.

But seriously, I am glad that you are all taking the right steps to ensure her success! She seems like a wonderful kid :)
