There's a guy on Project Runway who insists on referring to himself in the third person. This is annoying for three reasons: 1) He is not an impressive designer 2) It is a ploy to get attention and 3) He doesn't follow through with his pronouns. For example, he says something to the effect of, "Suede wanted something strong, so I chose purple fabric." This is by far the worst part of the whole mess and a clear indication that he is just trying to come off as quirky.
I decided I am moving by Oct. 1. Hooray! I bought a new tv stand and a new bookshelf for Punkin, and I can't wait to put them together.
Apparently my son has mommy-induced ADHD. We went to his school's PTO meeting tonight. There were a few other teachers and one other parent there, so he got to run around and play in the classroom while the rest of us had our very informal meeting. During this time, his teacher gave me a couple of looks I couldn't quite interpret. Finally, after he ran up with a plastic tube and yelled "FIGHDER!" in her face, she said, "I've never seen him like this!" as he ran away.
"What do you mean? He's always like this."
"Um, not in my room."
"This is Punkin."
"This is how he acts at home?"
"Yes, and the grocery store. And the doctor's office. And church. And the bathtub. And the dinner table. And the park. What? He's not like that for you?"
"Oh, no. He's pretty calm."
"CALM? Oh, no. He's not calm unless he's sleeping."
"No wonder you asked about medication!"
"I know! I always wondered when I asked you if he needed meds and you said no."
"When you asked me, I thought, 'Really, Erika? Meds?' But I understand now. No wonder you're tired!"
Well said, Miss P, well said.
P.S. I like MY meds so far. Definitely make me sleepy, though, which is a good thing since I have trouble calming down at night even when I am tired. Sounds familiar, right? =)
