Last night, fellow Buffalo Mom, Stacey Marks, and I took our littles to see Disney on Ice’s presentation of Frozen – and boy did it not disappoint.
Me: “I wonder if I’ll even remember any of the songs from this movie…. It’s been a while since we’ve seen it…..”
Also me: “DO YOU WANT TO BUILD A SNOOOOWWWMMAAANNNN….”
I wish this post was about moms taking a much needed girls-only getaway full of day drinking, laughter and zero laundry. It’s not.
Rather, it’s a post about perspective.
Over the past two years, I’ve gotten a lot of calls from daycare about my son’s behavior – biting, hitting, flipping chairs, etc.
“A child got too close… It was unprovoked… He wanted a toy… I don’t know what happened…”
For a while, I thought daycare was being dramatic. My son was 2. He had gotten his share of bites and bruises from other kids. And, he never lashed out like they described at home. What actions are age-appropriate forms of expression and what constitutes a legitimate behavioral issue? He’d probably grow out of it.
But then, he didn’t. The calls kept coming. My son kept lashing out.
