Bwahahaha! I came home from work today tired and grumpy, and was just thinking that maybe I was too grumpy to be a good mom should I ever get pg. Apparently I was right!

Myles, some day I would love to hear the story of your family's move to the US if you are ever comfortable sharing. If not, that's fine, too. I do hope you can bring your great aunt to live close to you.
Jennifer, I am going to read that book you linked to. It sounds interesting. And I'm sure I'll think of L the whole time I'm reading it.
Bridget, LOL about Kai and V! Too adorable.
My particular moment of grumpiness today is because I had another run-in with our admin. I was reviewing a file for an eval. Suffice it to say that the child is a drug baby, mom is in jail with no contact with the family, and dad was illiterate and could only sign his name on the X. He had to get a neighbor to fill out the forms we send home. The child's history leads me to believe he may be physically violent, he screams constantly, and will not tolerate unknown people. They didn't screen him because of his behavior. While I'm reviewing this, I get an email stating that we are having a woman who is coming to observe us for a class she is taking for her master's degree. She was supposed to observe another team on Monday but - get this - Monday she gave birth so had to reschedule for Thursday. She'll be observing the violent child who screams constantly. So I responded by saying that she could come, but there are significant concerns and the child doesn't tolerate strange people. Would it be possible for her to observe another team or possible to observe our 1st session (this was the 2nd session). The reply was that we were the only 2nd session and she needed to come later because she had a baby to deal with. So I responded again, asking if she intended to bring the baby because if she did, I would not be able to guarantee the safety of a 3 day old around a violent preschooler with no safety awareness. Admin replied that she hoped the baby wasn't coming, but it was "the mother's choice" whether to bring her baby or not and if it became a distraction, I could ask her to leave....am I the only one who sees a problem with that? Why can't admin tell her we can't allow her infant into the evaluation? If she brings the baby, I'm telling her to take the baby out. I really don't think she will, but we can't ask her in advance not to bring the baby because it's her choice? So either the baby will scream and set the child off, or the child will scream and set the baby off ... one of the two, and possibly both, is practically guaranteed.
