thought I would drop in.
The week is WILD, long days, long nights.
Work is soooo busy, the day is over before I know it. Poof.
PN helped me make the cookies, they turned out yummy.
SR missed the first word EVER on a spelling test, and absolutely fell apart today. Poor kid. When I picked him up, his head was down, and he was tearful. I stopped and talked to the teacher as she directed traffic...
The entire time we spoke, SR kept crying and saying "I am going to go home and lock myself in a box for an hour."
(The entire time he is saying this, I am thinking, holy crap, the teacher is going to think we punish him by putting him in a box)
I am not sure where he or why he was saying this. The teacher said the afternoon was very overwhelming for him....
He managed to collect himself on the drive home.
A perfectionist, inside and out...this is not a trait from DH and I, we also do not pressure him in academics. The kid just took it upon himself to memorize the entire periodic table in like 1 month. Alone, no help. He just was interested. We did not quiz him, or make flashcards. He even made a song out of the elements. He continues to study them, and is VERY interested. We have to google his questions to us, we are clueless.
Heck I should show him my blog, and all of the spelling errors. Heck maybe he can edit the blog...
Our first rule is RESPECT others and yourself. RESPECT.
Heck no where in our top 50 list of things we want them to do is PERFECT GRADES. He has never been in trouble for grades. NEVER. Probably because he always gets 100% on things. He has been in trouble for acting on impulse, and not RESPECTING people.
Maybe I can get him a book about mellowing out?
OK off to my bath, I forgot I have to make more cookies for Sunday!! I also have 2 20 something turkeys thawing out....
Tis going to be a busy week.
DH informed me the basement needs to be CLEANED up, the kids have a mess going on down there...
he said I would be mad if I saw it in its current state.
I am going to make the kids straighten it up before I enter...
Puppy is getting HUGE. LONG LEGS
