Staying alive...

Yep, I'm here.  I'm not pushing up daisies.  My little guy is having a lot of trouble adjusting to first grade.  He has to get use to a new teacher and no buddies from his kindergarten class in his class now.  His little tears are tearing my heart out.  So, what is a mom to do but put aside projects and blogging to assure her boy that things will get better by playing whatever he wants, reading, and cuddling with him.  So for the rest of the week, I will be a helicopter mom trying to help my little guy through this transition.  If anyone out there has some helpful tips, let me know.  Hopefully, I will be back to my project posting soon.  Keep your fingers crossed!    


  1. Hi Julie, kids are so resilient. Give the attention he needs and he'll be fine. My daughter had a similar thing happen to her - no friends in her new class (our school year starts in late Jan/ early feb. And the first week she was really sad but the second week she already had new best friends.
    Good luck for it
    Cheers Fiona

  2. Aw, Julie! I'm sure as a Mom you wish you could fix this for him. Maybe if you speak with the teacher and let her know. Perhaps she could pair him up with a "buddy" and he will start to make a new friend or she could do some kind of activity that will let the kids be more comfortable to make friends.

  3. Ahhhh I hope he adjusts soon :)

  4. Hi Julie, thank you for visiting my blog :-)
    Lovely corbels in your last post!


I would really enjoy knowing what you think. I love getting your comments!
