Okay, first take a deep breath. What would you do if the moment your baby was born, the doctors told you something was wrong? When you sat down with you child?s teacher or physician, they told you they thought your child should to be evaluated for a learning disability?
Why do we get butterflies in our stomachs on the first day back to school? There is a sense of vulnerability that overcomes many of us. During the two minutes at drop off, we begin to assess if we did what we needed to do to make our child fully prepared for this event. Should I have read more books to them? Should I have taken my child to the Museum of Modern Art instead of Chucky Cheese? My child is not perfect and they are going to realize this and I?m not there to defend him.
Before becoming a proud Momma, I never thought about food. I did occasionally think about my next meal or perhaps dealt with a bit of guilt after inhaling a gotta have it sundae with all the toppings, but food was a not such a big deal. However, as a mom in todays world, it has become one of the things I find myself constantly racking my brain with. When I do my weekly shopping I find myself struggling if I should buy the ding-dongs and Popems for my kids. I think to myself, If they have it in moderation its fine — but if I dont buy it, theyll never miss it.
