Come ooOON, 4-day weekend!!

Ok, one day to go until our long weekend. I hope I make it. Today, the babies drove me NUTS!!! My new boy is really pushing me to the edge of my patience. I had finally gotten to the point where my other "special" kids didn't make me want to scream on a daily basis. Partly because I got used to them, but mostly because they finally were getting on board with the program. This kid, though, is making me want to pull my hair out! Luckily, his mom has come to see me at the end of the day for every one of the three days he's been here so far. Hopefully, she's going to stay on top of him. I told her today that I wouldn't be taking him on our upcoming field trips without her because of his behavior, and she was totally with me. I actually had the nerve to suggest she save her $10 and just keep him home those days. I hope she goes with that option.

Hey, whatta ya know? We had REPORT CARDS in our mailboxes this morning! Only two weeks late! Gee, do you think it had anything to do with the fact that I sent every single one of my parents that asked about report cards to the office? I told them just what I was told - they weren't going to print them for kindergarten. Well, the mom I sent yesterday is a bit of a ball-buster, so that must have done the trick.

Keeping it short again tonight. I had a bunch of things I wanted to bitch/complain/vent about, but I'm trying to stay positive. So, that doesn't leave me much to say tonight! :)
It takes but one positive thought when given a chance to survive and thrive to overpower an entire army of negative thoughts.

Don't you just love it when you get the original group somewhat in line and the new kid sets the originals off again as if you hadn't been working with them for the past 4 MONTHS!!?
