I am a Good Mom!!!
Madisons parent/teacher conference went very well...I was very happy and it also took everything in me not not to cry...they are essentially telling you how they feel she will do next year in Kindergarten
.. ..and they said despite her speech they wouldnt be suprised if she was placed in a gifted and talented class. They are so happy with how she has "bloomed" into a very well mannered, self controlled, motivated and smart young girl. At the same time, Im telling them..well I get a whole different child when we get home. She screams and cries all the time it seems like... They told me what they think of Madisons behavior here and home and how they think it is partly of the move to the house and her speech...trying to make people understand you can be very exhausting. They said she has so much she wants to share but its hard to make it all come out the way she wants it, so that can wear her out. So they told me ways to try to work around that but not to force her to rest, etc. They also told me at the end that Im doing right by her and Im a very wonderful mother...which of course is when I almost lost it.... I had Madison very young and b/c of that I think I question myself often, almost with every choice I make for her...I ask myself "is this what is best for her? Am I doing the right thing?"......and to hear someone else tell me that Im doing right by her and Im a very good mother just really made my day and hit home for me that even though I may question myself every single day, that they are right..I am a good mom..and it was wonderful to get some recongition for it, for someone else to see what I do for her every day....Ok now that Im bawling after getting all that out, I think I will go work on cleaning some...
