thank you so much for the comments, emails and phone calls. I am feeling 99% better today!
Once the antibiotics kicked in my throat started feeling so much better.. then I would get a little cocky, and start talking a lot, and then sure enough, about 30 minutes later, I was miserable.
My dear friend, Charolette offered, No, insisted that she take Brigham for the day yesterday. She wanted to take Tatum too, but I thought that to be a bit much!
plus, my baby girl is really easy... its the talkative 4 yr old, that wears me out!
So I had a nice relaxing day with a couple naps, and lots of photo editing and reading the CK HALL OF FAME issue! there is some seriously amazing stuff in there. I am dying to scrap now.
my little guy on the first day:
the first two days he said he had fun. I couldn't get him to say hardly anything about what he did in class . The third day, I get a phone call from the teacher. Lovely. First week, and a call from the teacher. She left a message saying that he had thrown a block, and hit someone, and then was not happy at all when she put him in time out. (though,I can't really blame him!)
Since I was sick, I didn't answer the phone , thank goodness, but after I listened to the message, I was mortified! All last year , we heard nothing but good things, and how much of a considerate, compliant, and helping young boy he was.
So right off the bat, we're starting off this way. JOY.
Luckily, my friend Patti, said he was a gem for her the whole rest of the day.
I tried asking him about it, and of course he is very forth coming with information(funny at this age, they have no clue to stretch the truth a bit). It just doesn't make sense to me, so I can't wait to actually talk with his teacher on Tuesday,and find out what this was all about.
We are trying to figure out some different sort of punishment b/c time outs and spankings don't seem to be working well. at least spankings from me anyway. he actually told me after a series of about 7 swats, that they didn't even hurt. my hand was sure in pain , as well, as my heart!
So we are thinking about some other kind of reward system instead.
I celebrated his first day, by stopping by Arby's one of his favorite places, but we don't go there because its too 'spensive' ! LOL
so we picked up lunch and came home to the house filled with streamers and balloons. I think he like that. I also picked up his favorite candy, gummy lifesavors.
That night we went as a family to our local drive in restaurant. He's always asking to go there, and I think we've been once. He was pretty pumped. a corn dog and a frothy rootbeer. YUM.
Andrew's footlong cony dog, looked mighty tasty, I was bummed that my throat hurt.. its not often that I can indulge in that much deliciousness.. golden fried mushrooms too.. yummmm.
hoping next week goes better.
