Have you ever had the urge…

to just sit upside down?


Maybe its a sign that not enough blood is getting to my brain or something but I have had the urge to just sit literally heels over ass for a couple of months now. This might be my most random post ever but all in all it kind of make me wonder… is it a sign of being complacent and subconsciously I want to shake up the norm with an off the wall idea or activity? Am I in a rut and its manifesting in this weird want of looking like a 4 year old? Could I be feeling like I just want people to kiss my rear and are giving them easier access to said booty? Am I a bit burned out and the weird is starting to show?

Yup. Most random post ever.

But I actually can’t help but wonder if its all of the above in one way or the other. I’ve been having to go and stay with my Dude at preschool for almost 4 hours a day 4 days a week for about a month now and while I actually have a lot of fun with the kids its been really draining. I thought that by not sending him to daycare, not that we could afford daycare at the time, was being a good mom but he’s been having troubles learning to socialize that all the other kids seem to have down and I question my decision. I think he’s getting better but his behaviour makes me have to go with him so he can go and that leaves me a stressed momma and behind at home in work and projects.

I don’t usually like or want to be a bummer but its on my mind. So bear with me and my delays in emails and general demeanor :3 I know it will all come together, it HAS to. 

Maybe I should take up the urge and see what happens? What’s the worst that could happen? 🙂

    Oooooh girl, I sympathize with you so much! You are a great momma and it will get easier!! Isaiah had it rough in Pre-K and now he’s thriving in Kindergarten….partly because of the teacher. His teacher this year is really good and has made all the difference. I remember how Isaiah didn’t want to go to Pre-K….kids were picking on him, teacher wasn’t helpful, etc. He’s a totally different child this year. It will get better girl! Sending hugs your way, Rosie

      BIG HUGS right back! I’m hopeful for a turn around. His teacher is as determined as I am lol

    Yes. I have had the urge. I say go for it. Although now in my mid-30s, I suggest an age accomodation: Sit on the couch, turn yourself around, put your legs up the back of the couch and lay back on the seat, with your head hanging over toward the ground. Easier on the back, same rush of blood to the head.
    I’m not a mom, so that’s the only advice I can give except to say that it’s all gonna be okay 🙂

    • Kristy says:

      OMG that is a way easier method lol! That’ll also be way easier to get up from 🙂 HUGS Catherine!

    I’ve been there, if fact I’m still there. My son was diagnosed with first Oppositional Defiance Disorder at a very young age and then we realized it was ADHD and he was rediagnosed and he has a new doctor now. He is extremely hyper and impulsive but that really didn’t show until he was about 3 years of age and he was in daycare prior to that. Except for me, no one noticed anything wrong. He is 6 now and is in Kindergarten. He still has good days and bad days but luckily he is in a great school with a great teacher and we all work together. At least once a week I want to run away forget I have a husband and children and have an Antonio Bandaras look a like whisk me away to a tropical paradise. I’m also turning 40 this year so this could also be part mid life crisis.

    First don’t beat yourself up about your decisions. You can’t tell the future and you can’t go back and fix the past. Get time to yourself even if it is only 15 minutes every day. Sit with your butt in the air, take a walk, bawl your eyes out it all works. ASK FOR HELP. That teacher should be willing to try some different things with you. Try a different schedule, maybe start with one hour a day at school and if he behaves reward him afterwards and then keep extending the time he’s there. Not that you asked for my advice and may have some choice words for me under your breath. You sound like a great mom and you are not alone. All those moms that look like they have their crap together, they are taking meds or live a completely different reality than the rest of us.

    Good luck and I hope everything works out for you.

    I actually always appreciate advice and am happy to listen! Its really nice to hear that someone else has gone thru these types of things. He’s such a sweet boy at home and never went thru his terrible twos, he’ll be 5 next month, and I wonder if that is happening now? or just the transition into independence? Luckily his school is really working with him (his teacher had similar issues with her own son) and we had a meeting today and are trying another approach starting tomorrow. I have hopes that this will work 🙂 He’s a people pleaser and their going to try a reward system for good behaviour and choices. It seems to appeal to him so fingers crossed!

    Big hugs Dena! I appreciate it!!!

    Well i’d probably use your posterior for some snare drums or something if I walked by and you were in that position.. hehe I promise to keep a good beat. 😛

    Seriously though, we all have times in our life that we struggle. I say bravo for saying it. I hope the new system in daycare is helpful for you. You are a fabulous person, one I admire greatly! I know things will work out, sending hugs.

    Hi New here. I was cruising for copic tutorials and came across this post.
    I just wanted to say this is exactly my (and my sons of course) story about 9 yrs ago. I remember them sooo well. I totally get how you are feeling. But please know this you are an awesome mom. How do I know? I know because you are giving your son all that you have. You are giving him time and the extra support he needs. The reward/chart thing is what did the trick for my son. Especially when we backed the chart up at home and gave extra rewards for good days. First we started with if he had 2 good hrs at school Mom and him would spend special time together. We read or played a game. After a few times hitting that goal we built on it, when he had a whole day of good we went on a picnic or collecting rocks (he had a thing for rocks at the time lol ) and so on. I hope the chart thing does the trick for your guy. One thing I still try and repeat to myself almost daily (pffftt sometimes hourly) it’s only a phase, he WILL grow and move on and in six months to a year we will be beyond this.
    WOW sorry for the super long post on my fist comment.
    Thanks for all the great tutorials and info!
