Do you find yourself down all day after dropping off a sad kid at school? Your heart hurts for them all day and then when you pick them up they say they had a good day? What a waste! I could have spent the day being happy for him/her. How about when you leave the kid at school on a happy note and are in a good mood all day only to pick up the child to have him/her say it was an awful day? Then feel guilty because you believed it was a great day! I feel like I am always behind the times. I should be happy when they are having a good day and sad when they are not? Would rather not be sad/frustrated at all, but if I am going to be, there should be a reason besides worry and then find out it was for naught. I think I have to learn not to let their momentary emotion set the tone for my emotions. Yeah right MOM! Just go ahead and try - Good luck! Just wondering if anyone else ever feels the same. How can we get it to stop on the "good" moment? I feel like I am constantly chasing their emotions and it is just not the right thing to do. Maybe it causes more trouble?
