Posted:And an early decision came back from Child Protective Services today...
ah-hem...and I quote *snapping paper open in front of her*
"We can now inform you that as a result of the assessment made by the local child protective service, NO CREDIBLE EVIDENCE WAS FOUND TO BELIEVE THAT THE CHILD HAS BEEN ABUSED OR MALTREATED. Therefore the report has been determined "unfounded"....In accordance with Social Service Law, all information that in anyway indentify persons named in this report has been legally sealed."

That means that I have not in any way abused my son (I knew that), that my family is full of shyte (I knew that too) and that this whole nightmare is over! And a month early at that! I wept with joy, I can tell you!
Ladies and gentlemen I can tell you that my faith in Father Christmas is stronger than ever because both of my Christmas wishes (this and the insurance) have been answered.

Now, I think I am going to frame copies of this letter and give them to my family for Christmas, what do you think? *evil grin*

I am so happy for you and so relieved.

And you do realise that if Noah ever chucks a tantrum and does the "you hate me, I wish I had never been born" you are one of the few mums who can pull out a government endorsement of your mothering technique Poor lad, he will never win an argument again.

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

3) Rozi: re the government endorsement thing: I was laughing so hard that my roommates came running in to make sure I was OK.

Oh, just to add to the joy, I passed my renal final examination! This was the class I was in danger of failing!

Posted:Congrats MikeG!!!! I don't have any cool smilies but you have loads of hugs and kisses for that...when are we going out partying????

Rozi, I had never thought of that whole pull the paper out thing. I was cracking up over it and you know darn-tootin' well I WILL use it! And how well you know my son, he tries to pull that every time he disagrees with me! Last time I told him to go ahead, he wouldn't be the first! He stomped his foot, pouted and walked away!
Much love to all! (as I am just bursting with gladness!)
