I also got both my boys progress reports today. Those were fun to read, both are behind and having behavior issues. Logically I know life makes no guarantees but I was hoping to get ONE easy kid! My "NT" child is having more school issues than my ASD kid.
After everything over the course of this week, it is time to turn to distraction, it's either Facebook or a heavy bought of drinking. I don't have any liquor in the house so Facebook it is. I log on to see this:
Truthfully, this made me want to smack someone (LOL at the opposite effect)! Please don't misunderstand I'm all for civil rights and MLK. Dr. Martin Luther King was a truly great man, with great ideas for humanity but anger is human, to repress it is unrealistic and unhealthy in my opinion. So many of the "crunchy mommas" avoid expressing any negative emotion online. While I love most of their ideals, this seems completely insane. No one says I'm sick of my kid, I'm frustrated with my life, I hate my period. It always some life affirming thing, for example, recently someone referred to their period as a sensitive time of reflection, ummm ok. I can understand that you may feel that way ten periods out of twelve but EVERY WOMAN has one period where she wakes up with a serious case penis envy.
