Elsewhere, an earworm

Apparently I’m still writing things in other places, on account of those pesky “contracts” and “bills to pay” and all of that. This week at Alpha Mom, I’m telling you why everyone’s favorite song of the moment has become my new anthem. Sure, it goes great with animated princesses, but it goes even better with floundering teens (for real).

Plus, it’s fun to sing in the car.

    Hey, if those pesky contracts mean that we get a once-a-week confirmation that you’re still alive and coping as best you can, let’s hear it for contracts!

    Sending you lots of good thoughts and strength!

    You need to see the film: you will like the song even more if you do. (Bonus: magic ice castles!)

    Thank you! My child is only five and doesn’t start kindergarten until next year. However, she is a Highly Sensitive Child (Elaine Aron) and I have decided to homeschool her. Family members (at least, all the ones WITHOUT children) are questioning this decision. I am not taking the bait. They don’t know how difficult certain things are for my child (like chaos, which reduces her to tears), and I’m not going to argue with them about what is best for her (“Well, she just needs to deal with it, or she’ll never be a successful adult!” WHATEVER!). So, this anthem, for me, is about finding our own path, and figuring out where it’s okay to push and when she needs to be protected. I don’t think I would have EVER thought about homeschooling, except that I read about Monkey’s experience and I remember you writing that if it doesn’t work out, it’s not the end of the world. You can always change your mind. That gave me the courage to think about it. And if it doesn’t work out, it’s not the end of world. Because nothing is perfect anyway.
