Back to School!! Even for me...

Next week my son walks in to Middle School for the first time. The fear in me is intense! I worry about him and how others will treat him. I have always worried about him, it seems that people like to pick on him. Even in Kindergarten, a first grade girl punched him the month. First grade two boys jumped him. Ok, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade not much happen. Last year a girl kept hitting him in the back of the head, and a 3rd grader hit him in the month with a piece of snow that was actually ice! I know what you are thinking, but he actually didn't start any of them. He's one of those kids that is shy and easy to pick on. He doesn't stick up for himself. When the kid hit him with the ice, he actually said "mom, he didn't know it was ice it's ok." Wow, what a sport!

See he got bit in the face by a pit-bull when he was 5 years old. He had to have plastic surgery on the left side of his month and eye. You can clearly see the scare and it makes him self conscious. So heck yeah I worry about him!! He's such a sweet kid too, but I have to let him grow up and fight his own battles (hopefully he doesn't have any this year). We do live next to a kid that will be in 7th grade, and he agreed to look after him. Not sure how well though. I'm just a mom, loving their child unconditionally, what can i say. :)

Then I have my 3 year old starting pre-school!! Oh my how things change so quickly... I don't have to worry about her much, only that she will be the bully!! Ha, Ha, she's completely different than my soon, a sweet girl, just not shy at all. She will be my trouble maker I think. Hopefully not too bad! She defiantly has a mind of her own...

Next is me, starting my first year of college. I'm very nervous with this as it's been about 12 years since I've been to school. I also took on 5 classes, which everyone tells me how crazy I am. Yeah, I know I say, but honestly I don't know. The quicker I get it done, the faster I will have my degree is my saying. I'm going to try and be an accountant, just like my mother in law. We will have to see how it all goes. As for right now, I'm getting ready to enjoy the last of mine and my kids summer... Hope everyone is having a good one!!!


  1. I hope it all goes well for him. And you're right he needs to fight his own battles unless you notice something strange happening then you can step up.

    I really got a laugh from you saying that your little girl will turn out to be the bully! lol!!!

    I think it's great you're going back to college, what an experience it will be, don't you think? Don't get too overwhelmed and don't procrastinate! LOL! My main problem at school! :P

  2. I'm very nervous about going back to school, but excited too... I think it will be an awesome experience Maggie!! I've already told my husband to be prepared, as soon as we walks in the door he gets the kids and I hit the books
