I still can't believe I made that! I feel pretty proud of myself. I also can't wait to try it again. I am also very proud of myself because I have been trying to stretch out of my comfort zone with Pampered Chef and I have been trying to meet new customers when I'm out and about. I have been doing this. This is a very hard thing for me to do because even though people think I'm very outgoing and stuff, I'm actually very shy when I first meet people. I also signed a new recruit the other day so I am really, really close to becoming a director! Yippee! Oh, and I'm down 3 lbs within the last two weeks, not much, but it is progress, in the right direction.
Sushiboy is slugging his way through school and starting to feel better from his sinus infection. I'm proud of how well he is doing and I appreciate how hard he works for us.
Cookie lost his first tooth the other day, he was so excited! The tooth fairy left him a dollar and he told me "mom, the tooth fairy ONLY left me a dollar" to which I told him the tooth fairy only used to leave me a quarter, then he was happy. Here is a pic of the missing tooth in the mouth and that little tiny white spot in his hand is his tooth, he has really small teeth. He is also doing so well in school, he is reading, he knows all his sounds, letters, numbers and is doing well with math. He is a smart kid, I'm a little concerned that he is bored because his teacher is starting to see some small behavior issues, like not cooperating and he had a meltdown in class the other day. The year is almost over and then he will be in first grade and I'm sure things will be better.
Cakes and I were running to school the other day and she "took a tumble" in her words. The poor thing tripped over her feet and landed on her nose on the sidewalk. Thankfuly, the scab is gone now and there is just cute smooth pink skin and no scar. She wanted me to take a picture of it. Cakes is struggling a little in school, she is very creative and I'm glad for that but she is not at all ready for kindergarten this next fall. We had already come to this conclusion and so had her preschool teachers. She will be in a transitional kindergarten this fall and I think it will be very helpful for her. The transitional kindergarten follows the same curiculum as regular kindergarten but at a slower place and with a smaller teacher/child ratio. They also will have a speech therapist who will work with her, she has a slight lisp. I love how creative she is but I also realize she needs to fit into the normal parameters of school to be successful in life. I think the TK will be great and get her caught up so we can be done with special ed by regular kindergarten.
Tank has graduated to the sitting in the sink for a bath stage, mostly because he is too big to fit in the infant bath anymore. And he got his first ear infection Sunday night. The poor kid didn't know what to do with himself when he wasn't feeling good. I'm grateful for antibiotics. He seems to be feeling better now.
Well, that pretty much sums things up for the sushiboy family. How are things at your home?
