Me: Aaron, What did you have for related arts today at school?

Aaron: I don’t know. It’s a long name.

Me: What?!? Tell me what you did there and maybe I can figure it out.

Aaron: Well…we touched cotton balls and sandpaper. Continue reading

Meltdown At The Buffet

Week 5 of Kindergarten

The excitement is gone. He no longer jumps for joy as he puts on his TMNT shell book bag. He drags his feet down the three flights of stairs from our apartment to the bus stop. By the time I get off from work and pick him up he’s done. More than done. Cranky and disgusted. He wants to eat and then fall out asleep. Continue reading

How to start a Thursday evening…

Thursday Evening…

6:16 Left work. Daycare closes at 6:30….speeding…speeding…

6:29 Sprint into daycare. Manager says the boys are still in the afterschool clubhouse. Sprint outside and barge into the clubhouse.

6:31 Every employee that works for the daycare is sitting down waiting for their staff meeting to begin.

6:32 Aaron is throwing a temper tantrum about the cookies and lemonade he can’t have. This snack was for the staff meeting. Continue reading

Monday Madness

Sitting at my desk I was desperately trying to complete a report that was fairly difficult. I started a new position at work and I’m learning/working so it’s taking me longer to get through assignments.

While pulling my hair out on this alone Aaron asked me to fix “Abby”. Abby is a stuffed…well used to be stuffed…bunny rabbit. Isaiah tried to throw it in the trash earlier because the stuffing was spewing out of its neck. Continue reading

What Do You Think?

lego batmanI wrote a post a few months ago about Batman. Batman is awful!

I really don’t like him but this new Lego Batman movie coming out in 2017 looks decent.

What do you think? Are you going to bring your little superhero fans out to see it?

 

Hey! I know her!

6:50AM – We are standing at the bus stop in a crowd of kids who are running around. Moms are all dressed in their PJ’S with super hot hairstyles called “it’s too early for this”.

A white minivan passes the bus stop on its way out of our neighborhood. Suddenly Isaiah starts loudly proclaiming he knows the driver.

Isaiah: I know her! That’s my librarian! That’s my librarian!

Aaron: (screaming loudly) What?!?! I met her. I had “librarian” for related arts one time. I know her! 

Isaiah: Why does she live in our neighborhood?

I glared at him with a look that I’d hope would express I wanted them both to SHUT UP immediately. 

Me: Why not? Please let it go. 

Thankfully they both dropped it. A few seconds later Aaron points to one of the moms and begins to shout.

Aaron: I know her too! I saw her at my school!

Me: That’s great bud. Bring your voice down.

He walks closer to the woman and walks directly in front of her.

Aaron: What?!?! She always has a BIG smile on her face. 

Well…at least we live around some friendly people 🙂
