Today’s the last day of the Monster’s first full week at school.
After the debacle that was Tuesday, and the emotional roller coaster that was dealing with the school on Wednesday morning, I think things have actually somewhat straightened out. Continue reading
I don’t know if this would actually surprise people who know me or not. It probably shouldn’t be a shock, but who knows?
“Shiny. Let’s be bad guys.”
Yes, two Firefly quotes to lead things off. (Gotta love Mal and Jayne, even if the quotes are from two different scenes…) I think that summarizes how I’ve felt for the last, oh, about twenty-four hours. Continue reading
At long last, yesterday was the Monster’s first day of school.
This had been a day that the wife had been dreading for a long time. Sending the Monster to public school was full of a host of unknowns, which we’d been dealing with for about a week on our end. Continue reading
Going to the Please Touch Museum brings out our major issue when we’re in public – the fact that our Monster is a runner.
In specific, if we’re not really paying attention to what he’s doing, he’s liable to take off in any given direction. Even with us paying attention, there were times that he dashed off and it took us a few moments to lock on to where he’d disappeared to. Continue reading
Since summer is ending for the Monster after this weekend, we decided to take part of the weekend to do a mini-vacation.
Originally, we’d planned on taking the entire weekend to go away, but given how we’ve had issues previously with massive disruptions to his schedule and issues we had with finding a reasonably-priced hotel, we decided to knock it down to a single day trip. Continue reading
We’re on the last day before the school year, and still trying to scramble to get ready.
The Monster’s uniforms arrived on Wednesday, so we had him try them on yesterday to be sure that they fit and everything before he’s expected to wear them on Monday. The pants need to be hemmed, but the shirts seem just about right. I’m not so sure that I think preschoolers need to be wearing school uniforms, but hey, what do I know. Continue reading
Yes, another potty post.
When we last left off discussing the potty, aside from my little quick take yesterday, we’ve been having on-and-off success in getting the Monster to actually use the bathroom. Continue reading
A week from yesterday, the Monster starts school.
If I seem like I’m counting it down, I’m not really doing that – I don’t think I quite know what to think or feel about the fact that he’s going off to start public school on Monday. I guess I just somewhat figured it’d be at least another year down the line, like everyone else’s kids. Continue reading
Since I’ve nothing really important to write today, and the baby kept me up again last night (ah, the joys of teething), I thought I’d just share some funny moments from the last few days. Continue reading
