Went to a great kid birthday party today. Great food, pinata, volcano cake, and a big backyard for the kids to play. My son's whole kindergarten class was invited. Also, one of my son's teachers was there and she said although he is one of the younger kids, he is one of the most mature and a great artist and has a great imagination.
Oh GOODY. Kidlet is having behavior problems at school. Temper tantrums, yelling and kicking chairs. When she gets home from school she says she's had a good day. The teacher is threatening office referral if she doesn't improve. I'm inclined to let the kidlet get a taste of "getting into trouble" at school. __MORE__
Two of my sons pretend to be dumb with their schoolwork and I'm not sure why. The oldest pretends to suck at math and the middle son just thinks school is going to disappear at some point. I think they are bored, but there isnt much I can do to make sure they're challenged in the classroom.
my 5 year old just came out of her bedroom and chatted good-naturedly with me on the couch for roughly 20 minutes about various things. she ended it by looking at the clock and saying "Oh, it's late. I gotta get up in the morning!" A quick kiss on my cheek and she was off to bed again.
