J worked seriously long hours last week and through the whole weekend. I’m still recovering. Thus, you get little tidbits of our week:
One day Belle told me a boy in her class (the one who doesn’t behave!) colored in her lunch box with a marker. She and her friend told the teacher and she made him clean it up.
Little Lamb is so close to walking. She pulls up on me or some piece of furniture, lets go with her hands in the air and a huge smile on her face, takes one step and falls forward into my lap. It’s so precious.
Another day Belle told me a different boy spanked her on the bottom during small group work. Apparently she was in his way. The aid saw it happen and made him go talk to the teacher about it.
Little Bear has (mostly) spontaneously told me he loves me twice! I’m a big “I love you!” person and say it every chance I get. I do ask him to say “I love you, Mommy” and he always obliges me. I figure if you don’t teach them to say it, how will they know? Just like please and thank you. Anyway, twice now Little Bear has responded to me with “Luh yu, Mommy!” without me asking. It warms my heart!
Little Lamb is progressing with her speech far more quickly than I expected. We play peek-a-boo but instead of using those words I say, “Where’s ____?” And then, when he/she reveals themself, I say “There you are!” Now Little Lamb will parrot back the same tone I use but say something like “Dere luh lah” I wasn’t sure I believed it at first, but J witnessed it last night and there’s no denying it!
Today Belle told me a different boy in her class lifted up her shirt one day last week. I told her that was a MAJOR no, no and to tell a teacher immediately if it happens again.
An all girls school is sounding better and better!
Now I hear Belle coughing in bed. She was fine when I put her in bed at 8:30 and now at 10 she is coughing! Ugh. Much as I want Fall and the cool temps to come, I am not looking forward to the illnesses that come along with them.
