    Hope you and your family get better...we just got over the flu here, too. It truly sucks.

    I know I'm a horrible buttinski, sorry! Maybe there's more to it, do your son's friends eat breakfast at school? It might simply be a social thing.

    It totally sucks you have to support your kids all alone. That's tough. I'm sorry. No kids deserve that.

    I've only got a high this week. My 25 year old daughter told me not to worry about nursing homes or being alone when I get old because she'll always have place for me in her home. Now if I can just get her out of my home into her own.
    Actually it's a joy and a pleasure to have her here with me.

    High--my 8 year old wrote a letter to Santa, and wrote "Please give some of my presents to kids who don't have any money..." She then thought better of it, and edited it to say "Please give some presents to kids who don't have any money." She also has been watching "The Santa Claus" too much, she also asked for a Santa rule book (because she is curious just what rules the "big guy" has to follow), and advised Santa not to let the reindeer eat too much chocolate!

    Low--same darling child, reminds me of Taz sometimes...busy, busy busy...always into something! That and the fact that her & her brother can get into blows over anything--the TV, whose turn it is on the computer, who sits in the front seat, dryer lint, whatever.

    High-just sitting at home hanging out with the kids and they aren't fighting, we don't have to be anywhere and everything is calm.

    Low-Friday morning getting ready for the school and the 9 year old, clearly not understanding what I told her the night before that no laundry could be done until the main drain was rotorooted this weekend, moaning and whining that her faverate pair of jeans weren't clean for school.

    High - spending the blizzard hanging with my 5 year old and reading books to her (my poor hubby had to work in this mess!)

    Low - losing it when she wouldn't take her medicine (needed cough medicine and it's "soured, Mom") and I had a worse tantrum than her!

    Nah, you aren't a buttinski. (even though you got me and Susie mixed up...I have one child a daughter) I think she wants to eat breakfast at school because the other kids on the bus do. I used to think it was cool so it is ok for her to eat it, too.

    It does suck to support her alone, but I have plenty of emotional support...a friend who raised 3 boys to age 12 (the oldest) by herself...my mother, my sister and lots of friends who offer a shoulder when I need to whine. That is what is important to me.

    A big hug to all the parents out there! And for those of you doing it alone, and a big shout out. I don't know how you do it!
