Hyperventilating

It's been a slow week here at my blog. I feel guilty... I don't have an active reason for not posting save for the fact that my brain is full of other things. Freaked out, having trouble thinking about anything else, things...

The Kiddo's first day of Kindergarten is the 3rd of August!! I thought, for some reason, that it started at least a few weeks later then that. I'm very nearly hyperventilating every time I think about it. There are so many things he's supposed to know, most them he DOES know so that should encourage me... but I worry he doesn't know them right. You know how it goes, it isn't about ME but I'll feel like a failure as a parent if he doesn't know how to do all the things he's supposed too. For example he can write his big letters from memory but not his little ones. He plays well with others but STILL has no concept of personal space - yeah, the "we don't hug other kids" rule is something he needs reminding of every time we go outside to play or he forgets and latches on to every kid in his excitement at seeing them.

I'm also a little worried that we don't have enough clothing for him. Due to his growth spurt, he only has maybe five shirts that actually fit, one pair of shorts and one pair of jeans. Is that enough? Do I need to skimp on groceries this pay period so I can buy him more? I don't know!! I really need a brown paper bag to breath into like they do on tv, maybe that would help...

Anyway big step towards all that is the Kiddos endocrinologist appointment this Friday. Not only will we get his official measurement and growth for the last three months (*happy dance*) but we'll also get his emergency medical plan set up. At that point we can go back to the school and make sure the teacher, principle, and nurse all know what to do if he has a problem. Maybe I'll feel better once that stuff is done.

Those are hard words for a little kid. "Our" doesn't sound the way it looks. I think that other word they needed was "glue", which also looks funny. He's doing good to be reading vowel blends.

...'cept i don't have to stop the kids from hugging. which is good. cuz they hug and hold hands like ALL the time. culture difference.
