    That's what makes you an awesome parent.

    As for the teacher...When I was in junior high I had to change schools and didn't get any electives I wanted and was stuck as a library aide. We had to keep a daily written log of our activities. Apparently my lower case "f" look a little too similar to a capital "F". So, yeah...I think I got a D in that class. To quote Paul Newman in the classic movie Slap Shot, "Fuck'em...they're apes!"

    • We are back from Tristan's first race. She came in 100 out of I think 105 runners. She said the heat was horrible and started having trouble breathing on the hill. She also told me that she almost threw up when it was over. Next week, it will be much cooler, about 20 degrees cooler.

      • The only thing that bothers me about Tristan's running is this: for as long of legs that she has, she takes such short strides. Is that even normal? Also, when she's running fast, her one leg goes up so high in the back, that it looks like its kicking her in the butt

        • Try googling running stride videos. Video her running and show her the "better" stride. She may be able to improve with this. FWIW, my daughter, who is very tall and athletically inclined, was usually in last place when she ran track, so I know how you shake your head and say WTF!

          • Tristan said it actually hurts if she tries to open her stride up. To me, her short strides look awkward. It's almost looks as if she isn't going anywhere.

            • This is what Tristan told me about her running. Hills, she can open up her stride and it doesn't hurt. On flat surfaces, the legs hurt and its from the ankle to the knee and also her upper outer thigh. Any thoughts?

              • I'm so tired of having to email teachers to tell them I can't pay for this, that or the other. I have to pay $12 for a band shirt for Tristan by this Friday(at least that's what the form said). Apparently, the band teacher needed the money last Friday and Tristan is just telling me NOW! I actually sent the teacher a scathing email saying that I don't get paid until the 6th, the paper says the money is due on the 6th and unless she'll take a post dated check(because that is how she wants the goddamn money) then she will get payment on the 6th. I am so fucking tired of explaining to teachers that I am fucking broke and can't afford a damn thing. I am so fucking tired of being positive that I really just want to tell them all to go die in a hole. I'm sorry if you change your mind the last fucking minute about when you want the money. Keep to the original deadline or send a damn letter home

                  • Well, I was in the right and Tristan was in the wrong. Money due Friday. I can breathe.

                    • If Tristen is comfortable running the way she is, I say let it go. Whether she looks awkward or not... how is she placing? Is she coming in last? Is she doing well?

                      If not, have her see a physical therapist who will help her improve her technique. Physical therapy is covered by health insurance.

                        She came in 3rd from last in her latest race, however, she did run the entire race and is opening her stride more. Her coach told me he isn't too concerned about her yet. He said as long as she is showing consistent improvement and has fun, that's all he cares about.

                            And that fun has caused my grocery bill to increase by an additional $50/week. She's gone from a size 10/11 to a size 5 since the end of May!

                            So the kiddo is wanting me to start running with her. I know there is no way I can run like she is. I'm not even sure how to start.

                                I tried that awhile back and couldn't run like it wanted me to. I'd have to figure out a modified version of it that would work better for me.
