cleaned the truck.
cleaned the girls.
picked up Trevor.
went to the PO.
:) not too shabby. lol
the kids are outside riding their bikes and scooters. I can see them out the window as I type this. they are all doing good and getting along... for this minute. for some reason Lauren has been pretty fresh and naughty lately and I'm not sure what is going on with her... she is usually my best behaved... for the most part. This is extremely out of character for her... and the worst part of all is that she seems pretty proud of being naughty. I'm not sure how to discipline her bc, honestly I haven't ever really needed to. Only once in a while for minor things, I scold her and she understands what I mean and she is done being naughty. as of late though, talking, scolding, time outs, taking away things, being upset, sad whatever nothing works. She is very defiant and pretty happy to be that way.
I'm wondering if maybe it's the allergy meds. Maybe they are altering my sweet baby girls personality. :( bummer. i'll have to see how the rest of the week goes... but as for today and yesterday it isn't off to a good start.
Trevor on the other hand, was absent yesterday because of his appt with the specialist... so today was his first day back... he also missed Friday last week bc of stomach issues and I took the girls to the drs. but anyway... today was his first day back, and he did GREAT. His teacher had said he seems to have a hard time following directions as far as behaving himself... mostly he is fooling around with other kids in the class and doesn't always stop when asked... and sometimes has to be asked several times and then reminded again even after he stops. Bryan thinks it's just boys and that he is maybe bored in the class... I some what agree, or actually I fully agree, but still expect him to behave. Bored or not, boy or not, I want him to be good and listen... He is doing EXCELLENT academically so that is good, so maybe he is just bored.
Today when I talked to the assistant teacher of his class, she said that he is doing great. And that honestly she doesn't have a problem with him ever, he is just a boy and maybe because she has boys at home close to the same age as Trevor, she knows how to deal with it better or understands it better, but she said he is fine. Today she had to talk to him twice, only because when she asked a student a question if they hesitated or didn't know the answer, Trevor would tell them... or call it out. She said it was only that he got it a lot faster then the rest of the class and so he was antsy to wait for them to say it. Also since he knows it and they don't know it, he wants to help them out and give them the answer, he doesn't understand that by giving them the answer he isn't really helping them out... he thinks it's actually a big help to them. :) so really is only trying to be nice. :)
well Brooke hurt her finger and is running cold water on it to make it feel better, and Lauren needs a bandaid on her knee, so I guess I should go take care of them, and also check on Trevor... who just came in... great minds think alike!! :)
well i'm off to tend to my babies.
