(The following post is based on Mondays day, although my blog app posted it as Tuesday)
Today was looking to be a decent day. I was up early with my kids getting ds ready for his drs appointment and dd ready for school.
Ds had an audiology test which turned out great and according to dd she had a good day at school except one time out…or so I thought.
My cell rings at around 7:30 but I was unable to answer due to bath routine for the kids. They called back an hour later and it was the couseller from dds school readiness program.
She started by telling me dd has been doing OK but lately she seems to be having trouble adjusting to the school setting. She basically mentioned most behaviour any five year old would show except my cute little girl swore at a boy. As any other school dds catholic school doesn’t tolerate it.
It isn’t typical for dd to swear, she knows the difference between good words and bad words, we are constantly reminding her when things get tough to tell a grown up. Although dd is tough when she’s had enough she’s had enough, she just goes about it the wrong way lately. Still no excuse for using words she knows are rude and not tolerated.
What upset me the most is that she lied to me, stating it was the other way around the boy swore at her. Lying to me is like telling me you don’t trust me even though I know deep down that’s not why a child the age of dd would lie, more or less to get out of any consequences.
I’m not perfect, I’m a parent and I’m just trying to raise respectible children. My children are my life, pride & joy so when things like this happen it just makes me crumble into an emotional pile and get to thinking “wow she’s only 5…what am I doing so wrong” even though I know she’s a great kid so we must be doing something right.
Nobody said motherhood was easy.
