Catching up

I know -- been a while right. You see there was this little thing about preparing for a week away in Phoenix, making the trip and dealing the aftermath in my kids.

My last 6 weeks have felt a lot like this -- 2 kids sick...

Don't let R's smile fool you, they have been sick, although L seems to be taking the brunt of the vomitting (you know, because he can afford to lose the weight and all -- NOT!).

So excuse me while I bleach the daylights out of my house -- AGAIN. There has to be a way to kill this, no? Maybe it will even be warm enough to air out the house too this weekend.

and the teachers say...

They are both just wonderful.

Really??!! Dude, I wonder who they think my kids are.

Actually, I was told L was energetic, creative and fun. A bit hyper, but nothing that is out of the norm for his age. Apparently he is a genius with numbers (no surprise), but has no interest what so ever in sounds or letters. He is starting to get the science lessons, especially with things that will sink and float and he loves all the water work.

R on the other hand -- LOVES doing all his work and races to the work room when it is time. He eats well, sleeps well and usually has to be woken up at the end of nap time.

So... everything is great and I really really wish I could bring the kids that they talked about home with me after school because they sound so much better behaved then the two currently fighting over God knows what....

tick tock, tick tock

In just under an hour I get to hear all about the boys. I don't know if I am excited or dreading it.

With R I pretty much know what I am going to get. He is a joy. He is always happy. He eats well, sleeps well, plays well, etc. I am sure they will express both concern about his speech and their pleasure with how much his speech has approved in the last few weeks. R is pretty easy both for his parents and his teachers. Granted he is stubborn as all hell and throws a massive fit if he isn't getting his way and he needs to be reminded repetitively to use his words and not just cry or scream when mad at L.

As far as L -- it is really anyones guess. Depends on which child they remember. The very sweet, very loving doll that he can be when he is comfortable happy with everything around him. Or the whiney/clingy child that comes out when he is overwhelmed. As I said -- anyones guess. But they do know my baby, so I am guessing it will be all very upbeat.

Oh and soccer -- this week was not only much better, but I got to hear all about it when he got home. Guess I am just going to have to stay in bed on Saturday mornings while B runs him to soccer because he likes it a whole lot more with Daddy in attendance. Whatever works...
