Hi. Do you guys remember how I said Noah has been having some anger issues and problems with hitting and scratching at home?
Well, today he did the unthinkable. At least that's what I thought. Today he hit his teacher in the face! I was so mortified. Noah was angry about having to go into class or something like that. She cheerfully picked him up, Noah said : "No, no no!" and hit her in the face.
I apologized profusely and told her that we are taking this hitting thing very seriously. I asked that all of the teachers let me know if he hits in class and that if I have to, I will pull him out of school until he can learn to act nicely.
The teachers are so sweet and kind, of course she just laughed and said: "It's ok, they're so young, maybe if he was hitting at a little older age, that would be different." I understand, but we need to stop this now, before it gets worse. I was so embarassed. They also said he won't eat lunch and with a laugh: "That he walks around like he owns the place." Oh my...that's not good. I told them that it was funny because Noah thinks he owns our house too!
You know what Noah needs (well, other than to stop hitting) a career. Yeah, seriously, he needs a position where he would be in charge, call the shots. I bet he'd love to lead a pack of visitors around a train museum or somthing. I'm not even joking, if he had the verbal skills, the understanding of what he was doing and a work permit, I think Noah would thrive on pointing out different trains for hours and roaming a big space like a museum. He'd walk around like he owned the place. ;)
