Vindicated....

...for years I've worried about Collin. He is so much like me that it's eerie. Coupled with the fact that he looks like me, and it's downright scary.

...today we had parent-teacher conferences. Collin's teacher this year is the very first to admit that perhaps being so overtly sensitive might not be a good thing. What do you mean? Crying at the drop of a hat when things are amiss won't always get you sympathy from your peers?? He told me today that he has been working on toughening him up a little, or, at the very least, addressing it with Collin. NOT ONE OF HIS TEACHERS before has ever agreed with me on this very point. Perhaps it's because they've all been female, but still.

...I do worry about my little man. I suppose that is my job, though, no?

Awwwww bless him. I guess there are pro's and con's to being a sensitive soul. I hope the toughening up works a little babes!

let him spend some more time with Noah, that'll toughen him up. Or drive him insane, take your pick.

OMG!! How does one teacher tell another teacher "hey, your kid ain't so tough..."
