Joel had his very first cub scout meeting today. Well, it was not just the den meeting it was the entire pack meeting. Which is basically a "business meeting". They talk about stuff and hand out badges to kids. Well, that is pretty BORING to an 8 year old who thinks he will be learning and doing things. So when it was all done, we get back in the van we have another melt down. He was all upset that other kids are going to have patches but he doesn't. And he didn't like that the kids were looking at him like, "who are you?". He didn't know anybody,except his friend Philip.I told him that next week will be better because you will be doing things with his den. I don't think he is very sure yet. He kept crying and having a little pity party for himself in the van. So I told him he needed to get a hold of himself and stop the crying. Let me tell you, it was very hard for him. But he finally did. Honestly, he is so competitive that I think he will be catching up with all the other kids very soon.
So, that was my Thursday. I am SO thankful tomorrow is Friday. And there is no school. So I get to sleep in (hopefully). I hope we will have a nice day, no screaming, yelling or other unhappy occasions.
Have a great weekend, everybody:)
Hope you don't feel like this:
'cause I sure felt like this tonight!
