Weekly Friends TV Quote!

Season 1 Episode 16 TOW Two Parts, Part

ROSS: I don't know whether he's testing me, or just acting out, but my monkey is out of control. But, he keeps erasing the messages on my machine, supposedly by accident.

RACHEL: Oh, yeah, I've done that.

ROSS: And then, like three days in a row he got to the newspaper before I did and pee-ed all over the crossword.

RACHEL: I've never done that.

Irrational Fears

Season 10 Episode: TOW the Home Study

Ross: Well, I was thinking of taking Emma to the playground!
Rachel: Oh my God, what!?
Ross: Like I said I was thinking of taking Emma to the museum of knives and fire!
Rachel: Ok, look, Ross. I do not want Emma going to the playground.
Ross: Be-caaauuuse...
Rachel: (upset) All right, well, if you must know... I had a traumatic... swing incident... when I was little.
Ross: Seriously?
Rachel: Yes, I was 4 years old and I was on the swing and then all of a sudden my hair got tangled in the chain. And to get me out my mom had to-had to cut a big chunk of my hair! (crying) And it was uneven for weeks!

As a parent do you ever wonder if you pass on your irrational fears to your children? I know I have unconsciously for the most part. Sassy is my worrier and throughout the day this is what I get asked?

Sassy: This touched the table will I get sick if I eat it?
Me: No it is fine.
S: What was that noise?
M: Nothing... just the people next door.
S: Is my drink still good?
M: Yes
S: Can my heart just stop beating?
M: No it can't.

These are questions that I hear constantly and they can be draining trying to calm down an 8 year old. She is a human sponge and will pick up on everything around her. I am a worrier, but more of a quiet one (or so I thought). I am starting to see how my constant worrying has turned my little one into one as well. I have a theory as to why she is like this... She has been an only child for 8 years and mainly around adults everyday. Yes, she plays with other kids just fine, but when she is at home she is around me and her father.

************************************************************************************
Tomorrow is the first day of school and Sassy will enter the 3rd grade. I have made a list of things I will do better this time around.
1. Write all due dates on the calender
2. When money and slips are due turn them in ASAP so I don't forget
3. Do be intimidated to go talk to the teacher... For some reason I always am and get flustered when I need to have a conversation with them.
4. Keep all notices on homework, reading club, projects, etc. where we can all see!

I am one of the most forgetful people out there when it comes to the day to day. I admit that I am the mom who forgets to have her child turn in slips, home reading club, money when they are due. I am determined this year to make a change, because I am done with being the flaky mom.

I am so excited for the new school year, because I know the teacher she is having and she is great. She will be in a Gate cluster class, which I hope helps keeps her motivated to achieve higher. Last year was a rough year, so I am hoping that this year is a lot different!

Here is to an awesome new school year!!!

Wow...D and Angela are staring school, and Big Sis has been in for almost 2 weeks now!!

I had to make some adjustments to my routine with the girls, too, because I was horrible about forms and stuff. So far, it's working!!

Also, I left you a present on my blog!!

I think we all turn into our parents eventually. It's nothing you are doing. I started to show the first signs of becoming my mother in elementary school, fought it like hell all through high school, college and my 20's, somewhere in my 30's I finally started to give in and now that I am in my 40's I've morphed completely. Besides, being a little bit of a worrier is good...she will be cautious, my son is that way too. Cute post!

I think I did this to my adoptive son too....make him worry about certain things. He is a bit more causous when he is climbing and trying to play on a play ground. I fear he would fall all the time when he was younger, and he had NO FEAR.
