We have officially entered the second week of school.
GG had 3 full days last week while Little Dude had 2 1/2. But judging by their book bags after school on Monday, we are in full school mode.
All of the
Now it's time to learn!
GG absolutely loves school! She has the teacher that all the
Little Dude appears to love school as well. The getting up in the morning? Not so much! He's like his momma - he loves his sleep and is quite grouchy when awoken to early. Coffee helps me, but I don't think his teacher would appreciate it if I gave him a cup o' joe. Every day he tells us something he learned. At first it was letters, but then he discovered the special classes, like music and gym. They got to use fruit maracas to make music and threw footballs on the playground.
I am beyond excited that they both are enjoying school. We were worried about Little Dude since he wasn't officially in pre-school, but he seems to be doing well. Me on the other hand? That's another story!
I've been so busy with a resale event I participate in that it hasn't fully hit me that I am the only one home. Although I will admit, I thoroughly enjoy listening to whatever music I want at whatever volume I want!
Oh, and homework. That has started, too. And that is where the success may end! GG's is a bit more involved now that she is in the 3rd grade. I don't think she's thrilled with that. Little Dude, who has never had homework before, is starting the war already. Too often when I am trying to help him do something or show him the correct way, we end up butting heads. He is definitely my son! We had a talk about the homework routine, so hopefully after a few days, we'll get a good schedule going and the battles will cease.
I can only hope, right?
Until next time....
