Scott is learning to tie his shoes. He did awesome the first night we worked on it but now gets frustrated quickly when it doesn't turn out right the first time. Scott starts Kindergarten in a couple weeks but you wouldn't know it because he neither complains nor talks excitedly about it. He was the same way about preschool. When it's time to go, he'll go, and there won't be much hoopla over it. It would be nice if he'd get excited about it but I guess it could be worse.
Me: Scott, did you brush your teeth?
Scott: Why wouldn't I??? (said with impatience and irritation)
Me: Oh, I don't know...maybe because I typically have to ask you fourteen times before you do anything?
But the boy makes up for all that orneriness by occasionally coming crashing in for the unprompted hug and kiss, complete with a "love you mom!" that can just make my day!
Bekah. What can I say about Bekah today? She fancies herself the enforcer at daycare and constantly tries to tell all the younger kids (and sometimes Steph) what to do! She's dying to have a small tv/vcr set in her room that Great Grandma Helen sent home with us about a month ago. Jesse and I are against tv's in bedrooms but we told her if she proved responsible, we'd consider it. She practiced piano for two days without being asked and then that fell by the wayside. The tv is still sitting in the corner of the living room.
hot air balloon earlier this week. Tonight it was a miniature log cabin and log dog house with a pipe cleaner man and dog. No small task - and I wonder why my laundry never gets folded and put away!
