My poor little baby is sick today. This happens every time he goes to the nursery at church. About 2 to 3 days later he gets sick.
Today, He has a deep cough, runny nose, high fever and I can tell he has a head ache. He has just lain in my bed all morning and pretty much cries all the time.
I am so irritated about it. We had a big camping trip planned for this long weekend and I doubt I will get to go unless a miracle happens.
I don't want to keep him with me at church either though. I might as well be inactive! Supposedly "someone" cleans everything but obviously not very well.
I thought about calling the nursery leader because she is a friend of mine. I want to let her know of my problem. She used to be the relief society pres. and I like her alot.
Anyway. The joys of parenting. The next obstacle. My 10 yr old J. came home yesterday to tell me about some boys on the bus who bully him. They took his backpack and water bottle and wouldn't give them back and then threw them in the garbage at the back of the bus. He was bullied last year by these boys. I called the one's dad that I knew. These boys are also in my webelos pack. I am tempted to talk about bullies, what it is, how it hurts etc today in scouts.... I haven't decided. It makes me so angry. Granted, J. is very sensitive and gets his feelings hurt easily but I don't get it. What is it that draws the wolves? It's not like J is a weakling. He loves sports, is very confident. Wants to be in every talent show, enter every contest and science fair and is very outgoing. He's definately a yellow. He loves sports and is not shy. He loves to participate and just want friends that love him as much as he loves them.
It's hard to see your children hurt and I am well aware that the trials will mold his character but I wish I could shelter him from it. I'm going to nip it in the bud this year though. Half of these boys are in my ward and come over for scouts as polite as you please. It makes me want to smack 'em! See my violent nature? I don't think their parents know how their children behave.
Last year J made a girl his age on the bus cry. Her mom called me and I made him use his money to buy her a present at the store. We went to her house to give it to her and he apologized and promised never to make her feel bad again. He, of course, was mortified and embarrassed. It was actually a girl he really liked. Kids can be so stupid. I know in their minds it's "harmless" teasing but some kids come home and cry. I WILL NOT TOLERATE IT! I have no patience for teasing and teasers.
Am I being over dramatic? Possibly, but I don't think so. Kids who are allowed to tease when their are young, think there is nothing wrong with it when they are older. In my mind it is just another form of abuse.
