Thunder was threatening on my way back from walking the girls to school this morning, three umbrellas in hand. Anna was horrible this morning. Anna was horrible last night. She's in a mood. Maybe it's the transition. Today's the last day of Kindergarten. They've made a big deal about the fact that after today they will be first graders. FIRST GRADERS. Exciting and scary. She was awful a lot last summer too. Change is scary.
Anytime someone is mean, defiant or difficult they #1 feel powerless, #2 are scared and #3 lack the ability to accurately and appropriately express their feelings. Kid or not, this is a universal truth. Plain and simple. Sadly, I've seen more adults exhibit this behavior than kids. That's why I want to nip it in the bud in Anna. I am not in the business of turning out asshole adults. Therein lies my own personal fear that I'm not accurately and appropriately expressing. heh
I also counted six soggy dog shits in the yard that I can't pick up for obvious reasons. I'm frustrated.
