Growing up

My sweet little girl went to a fun night at the high school tonight. A few of her female and male friends were there. She had fun despite the fact I too was there. On the way out to the van afterwards she thanked me for bringing her. I wonder how many other moms or dads were thanked tonight. I am glad I was one of them.

We cut out red dye #40 about a month ago. Not for all of us. Just the family member whose body I suspect converts it to speed. So far I think I see a difference. Maybe. Am I crazy? There is no medical proof the dyd does or does not cause behavior issues. So maybe its a preservative. I just do not know.

New girl

A new girl starts in my daughter's class tomorrow. She is a little bent out of shape. She isn't worried about the girl. Its simply the change in her life. I need to help her deal with change.

Sometimes being kind sucks

Yesterday as a drunken man berated and belittled me in front of his friends I wanted so badly to say "you suck!"

While this may have been honest, it would not have accomplished anything.
