Pity Party!!

Yes, it's been a few weeks. I know, I know. After the 7 Days of Hope I took my kids to VBS. (vacation bible school). We have never been before. They had so much fun. My daughter loved her class and all the things they did. I had to sit in with my son's class though. He can't handle being around alot of people by himself yet. I was hoping to be able to go into the adult class or the singing class but that did not happen. We still had fun though. The teacher was very accepting of him and always asked if and when he wanted to participate etc. I really appreciated that. But after a couple of days I noticed the looks from some of the other kids in the class. You know, the looks that you hope won't come but always creep there way in. Honestly we purposely avoided activities like this for reasons such as this and the whispers and comments. But as far as I knew it was just the looks this time. I enrolled him in a younger class than his age/grade because maturity wise he was not ready for it. I think if I put him in the class with his age they would have mowed right over him and ate him alive. I was actually quite shocked at what was actually expected in the class I did put him in. I don't remember it being that way when I used to go. I'm really glad I stayed with him. He still needs one on one. For a day I felt sad about what was. I actually didn't want to go one night but my kids did and so I left the pity party and it actually turned out well. Then when the week was done he got sick and I did too. My daughter didn't get it too bad. Then I was like "I try and do something good and then look what happened" We don't get sick often. We went through the whole winter without catching the flu or much of anything. Then we go to VBS and get sick. Pity party!!! After all said and done I'm glad we went. Even though my son is still coughing 3 weeks later. Oh, the things we do for our children.


  1. What a great Mama!

    We almost always get sick after visiting family. No fun, but still worth it. :)
