It is these quiet moments that my fingers can fly across the keyboard.
I've got some things on my mind for my little boy who is probably enjoying Music Class right now. We have conferences for him tonight. It is our first "real" conferences if you don't count the preschool "Yes, he can write his ABC's" kind of conferences. I'm nervous. I have not exactly pin-pointed the reason for my anxiousness about it...but I think it sounds something like this...
I love my tiny boy to pieces. I so want him to do well. I'm proud of him. I'm not ready to hear anything negative about my little man, who has recently and adorably started to want to have his hair spiked in a way that only Daddy can do. I have no reason to think she would have anything negative to say, but I worry nevertheless. I know parents all over this country go to conferences and hear the good and the bad about their child's social and academic abilities. We need to hear it to help them grow and succeed. It is just my over-the-top, type A, need to please personality that is craving for everything to go well. To prove...what...we are good parents??
Who the heck knows. That is what the flow of thought looks like on a daily basis in my head. Probably should just keep them there, huh? I'm sure we will make it through this evening's events just fine. We have a two-hour interval between the kids' conferences, so I could always go drink after the first one to prepare me for Jillian's. Just kidding. Oh - this is her first conference ever. Guess I need to start worrying about that too, huh?!?
I'll keep my eye on the prize. I have a very important date this weekend. The Mother-Son Dance. We will be going out to dinner and then dancing the night away at the high school. I can't wait.
Oh - and I have something awesome to share with you tomorrow! I can't wait! Be sure to check back and see the big news!
