Making mountains out of molehills.... #WotW

This week my word of the week is....


In my head my problems and worries have been mountains when in reality they have only been molehills....


Last Friday lunchtime we thought Becky was missing....We got a phone call off the school saying she wasn't there....An automated message....Of course I blogged about it....In my head she had been kidnapped in reality the supply teacher had just made a mistake....I'm still waiting a reply back from the school about my complaint...

Our landlord hadn't renewed our tenancy agreement it was due to be renewed at the beginning of the year....I was worried about her increasing our rent or evicting us.....There was nothing at all to worry about she had just had a lot on and never got around sending it....Phew! Everything is signed and we have a home for another year!! The joys of renting!

We had Ellie's parents evening.....In my head she was the bottom of the class and still misbehaving.... She got her report at the end of March with the levels she was working at and they weren't great but it turns out they are not worth the paper they're printed on....She's now a level or two above what was sent out to us!! Hooray!! Her reading is amazing and she is one of the best in the class, her writing has improved greatly and as for her numeracy, she's doing fantastic!! I couldn't be more proud of her....She still likes to daydream but at least it isn't as much as before...She has been behaving well and I said to her teacher I wish she could have her next year too because with Miss T she has came on leaps and bounds...

Yesterday we were at the hospital for Ellie's yearly hearing test.....Last time we were there we were told she was now completely deaf in one ear and the tests now were to check to make sure her good ear is staying good.....I always worry about hospital appointments and think the worse....There of course was nothing at all to worry about....She's still deaf obviously but her good ear is working perfectly.....We're back again next year!!

I'm not the only one in my house making mountains out of molehills....Becky has hit that hormonal, tween stage.....Everything is a drama....Her attitude has been terrible and sometimes I just think she looks for an argument...I keep telling myself it's just a phase, it's just a phase, she will grow out of it....lol

So all in all it has been a good week....I need to worry less though!

  6. Molehills are so much better than mountains, and it is hard not to worry when it's your kids. Glad all's well, though :) Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

  13. I'm glad that each one of these turned out to be just molehills. Often we can make ourselves sick with worry, jumping to conclusions and making mountains out of molehills
    Glad to hear everyone and everything is ok

  14. Oh Hun, I think as parents we always worry more than we need to and it's only with hindsight that we can look back and laugh. Glad t hear it was a good week after all. Xx

  15. At least you can see you are over reacting :) It is so, so easy to jump to the wrong conclusions or as you say make more of them than is really needed. At least everything worked out OK in the end :).
