Home from Pinewood Derby, relaxing and doing nothing. Trying to take a deep breath. Because this means the school end season is finally done. With Danny it was especially tough because the Derby and science fair hit the same week.
I know these are the kids projects, not mine. But he’s a fourth grader and that means we as parents had to at least help. Or do even more. That’s a lot of pressure on us, and as we know I don’t handle pressure well.
And then Pinewood was difficult. I had watched a video on making a car and tried to follow it as best I could for Danny. But I did so poorly, so his car just didn’t run right at all. Luckily Danny is such a good tempered kid who just has no competitive streak, so just didn’t care. So I was frustrated and irritated.
But now I can just take a deep breath, and move past it. And then relax. Because it is all over now. And life is life. And the school projects are over for this year at last.
