Star Wars costume


Our local public library was holding a comic con and we decided we would take T to it, because he LOVES Marvel, DC, Doctor Who, Star Wars, etc. Well about a week before the event, we decided T should wear a costume, T was okay with it and wanted a Star  Wars costume. Well I had to use what I had at home to make his costume, we went with a sith lord costume, it was pretty easy to put together. I made the whole thing out of 1 king size black sheet, I’ve had the sheet but never used it go figure. T was so excited about going to the comic con and going dressed up, but when we got there, he turned into another child I swear. He was a complete brat!! I couldn’t believe he was acting that way, it was ridiculous, I had spent time working on his costume just for him to show his ass like he did. We ended up leaving early due to his attitude, I got really bummed when our local paper was there and took a group photo of all the kids, sadly T was being a brat and didn’t wanna get his picture taken. Overall, the costume came out pretty awesome, but the event was a waste due to T’s nice attitude he had. Below is the photos of T in his costume and the link to the post the paper did up online.

Don’t you just hate when you get prepared to do something fun and then your child just decides to ruin it with their attitude?! Drives me nuts!

First day of kindergarten!!


(yeah a bit late but finally getting to it!)

T started kindergarten on Sept. 3, 2014, we had to have him to his bus stop by 7:20am, so that meant an early morning for us all. Surprisingly T got up with no problem got dressed and ate some breakfast. I surprised myself and didn’t cry too much, I just couldn’t believe that my baby boy was going to “big kid school” as he calls it. Seemed just like yesterday I was in the hospital getting ready to have him. Time sure does fly by when you’re having fun, and it just doesn’t seem fair! When T got on the bus with no problems, he didn’t cry or fight to get on the bus. He was actually really excited and tired of waiting for the bus to eventually show up.

CATCH UP:

Now T has gotten used to his routine in the morning for school. We get up between 6 am and 6:20 am, he gets dressed and has breakfast, then he gets to watch at least one show on TV, then its time to head down to the bus stop. I think its crazy how early kids his age has to be up by to get on the bus, it used to be later but since closing a school its all changed. Thankfully we’ve had no problem with T getting used to this schedule. When he gets home the first thing he has to do is homework if he has any. The first day he had homework he fought with us and didn’t wanna do his homework. Finally after about 20 mins of fighting with us, he decided to do his homework, we simply told him, he needs to do homework first then he gets the rest of the evening to do whatever he wants.10606257_10152697625198548_2433992670356346622_n (1)

 

T has already had school pictures, and we kept telling him NO cheesy smile and when we finally got the pictures, we couldn’t believe it! He took an awesome picture, we were so excited. On a side note, I can’t believe how much school pictures cost!!!!

 

How was your child(rens) first day of school? Did they have fun? What about school pictures?

Battle For The Net


If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10thEveryone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown Get creative! Don’t let us tell you what to do. See you on the net September 10th!

The birthday boy!

On July 28th, T turned 5 years old!! I can’t believe he is 5 already, it doesn’t seem possible, I swear children grow super fast. On the 26th we had a little birthday party for him and he had a blast. It was nice getting everyone together to celebrate T’s birthday. Sadly it did start to rain, but everyone stayed and the kids had even more fun after it rain, running in the puddles.

Family photo on T’s birthday.

We have had some major positive success with nighttime potty training with T. We started him going to bed with no pull up since April 16th and he only had 3 accidents within the first 2 weeks. He has been really good about coming down stairs to go pee at night and going pee when he first gets up in the morning. Now if we could work with him actually getting proper amount of sleep we will be doing even better! We send him to bed at 8pm and he will not fall asleep til almost 11pm, its crazy and with him starting school soon that’s not good, since he is back up between 7 and 8am if not earlier on some days.

September 3rd, T will officially start kindergarten, he is super excited! We were able to attend student orientation, that’s when he got to see where his classroom will be and find out who his teacher is. On September 2nd is open house so we get to actually meet his teacher. I’ve been told the lady he will have is a good teacher, so lets hope they are right. I am just nervous cause I know how he can be sometimes, but maybe being in actual school it will be different. One of the things he is most excited for is getting to ride the big school bus. I know dang well I am going to be crying when we put him on the bus for the first day.

How he dressed to go shopping, it was a fun day!

Beginning of August we had to take T to get tested for Autism, they said they don’t see where he is autistic but could have ad/hd, but they want to re-test him again in November. That day was just a very long day. Plus it didn’t help T acted like he would when meeting new people, being super good and doing whatever he is asked to do. I wish he would have acted like his normal self, but maybe next time they will see how he really is.

This summer has been quite interesting and busy, with keeping T entertained. We went camping and he had a blast until he got stung on the neck, he screamed so loud I am shocked no one woke up. He now won’t go outside for long because he is in fear of getting stung again, so its been even crazier trying to keep him more entertained since he won’t go outside, and having a small budget we can’t afford to do much.

Overall, summer has been fun and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way, well T getting stung I wish that didn’t happen. Myself and D are excited and sad about T going to kindergarten but I can’t wait to see him come home and be excited about how his days were at school. Thanks to all of you that still stick around to following my blog :-)
