My mood: grateful for my family, a little blue about my "career"
Best food I've eaten today: Trader Joes Cinnamon and Sugar Pita chips
Most annoying moment of the day (so far): Fruit Bat's quasi-meltdown after preschool (his second day this year) in which he screeched and generally addressed me with all the respect he would give a wood louse.
Not quite sure what to do about Fruit Bat's Fear of Being Alone. I literally cannot walk from one end of our house to the other without his frantically calling out, "Mom!! Where are you??" Soon on the heels of that is, "Come! Mom! Come!" So, I guess I'm not a wood louse, I'm a whippet.
God forbid I should, while accompanying him to the kitchen, duck into the laundry room to throw clothes in the washer. This results in another shriek so shrill I want to go bury myself in the backyard so I don't have to hear it. He's four-and-a-half and the only kid I know this age who won't spend a millsecond in a different room than me.
