It’s currently the coldest outside it has been do far this year. According to my phone we’ve got 28 degree weather outside which wouldn’t bother me but we have to leave the comforts of our super warm home and meet with teachers.
This isn’t my first set if conferences but it is the first time having confrences at a middle school with a hearing child and the very first time for my kindergartner. I’m a little anxious to see how my kiddos are fairing this year. Given the fact that I get weekly progress reports on my 5 year old I have a pretty good idea how he’s doing.
The mystery is my middle schooler. I’m sure she’s doing well as she is a very bright young lady the problem is she’s homework phobic and conveniently she no longer has her daily planner so I can’t MAKE her do homework because I no longer have proof she has any. Hopefully with the help of conferences today we’ll get the planner returned.
I’m also hoping that we’ll warm up quite a bit. 28 is a bit chilly even for me but hey at least I get to wear one of my new sweaters 🙂
Sorry it’s been awhile since my last post my intentions were to post but my life has been moving at light speed and I feel as if I’m just standing in the way.
Anyhow…I’m a couple of weeks away from the end of my summer break and my school aged kids are just days away from theirs. Our daughter found out she’s been accepted into her first choice middle school and our kindergartner has been placed in the all day program.
With these changes I find I will need to pull out the “Mom’s Taxi” sign and paste it with pride on my van. This fall will bring girl’s cross country meets and football games not to mention that I’ve signed up to volunteer at the schools and joined the PTA. With only one child not in school it frees up quite a bit of time for me.
Also – while looking on Craigslist the other day I came across a posting for a thrift store that was going out of business. Three carts later my daughter had scored 16 pairs of designer jeans for school. The 6 pairs that I had bought her days before were promptly returned to the mall.
Even though there is currently super crappy background music playing I’m choosing to continue to smile and trying to find the silver lining even in the darker clouds.
Until next time smile often, laugh at least on fully belly laugh a day and be well 🙂
Today was a bitter sweet day for me as a parent….my oldest is now offically a sophmore in high school, my little girl will be in the 6th grade, my standing comedian will be starting kindergarden *sigh* that just leaves one at home for me to love on and spoil during the day. It’s great that my children are advancing and doing so well but at the same time it means they are getting older and embracing more independance – yeah, it’s kind of a mixed bag. We 100 for sure are NOT adding to our brood but every once in awhile I wish I could turn back the hands of time, even just even for a few moments so I could love on them a little more when they were little. Wishful thinking but there it is. I’m very proud of the people my not so little ones are becoming and I’m very greatful that I was choosen to be in their lives. But anyway…..enough of the mushy. I hope you all have an amazing weekend 🙂
