OMG your 8 years old?!


That’s right, if you’ve been a follower for a few years T has turned 8 years old!! Man does time fly when you have a child. He is growing up way too fast, but I’m one lucky mumma to have him as my son. Yes he can be a handful what kid isn’t but I wouldn’t change anything about him. T is a unique little boy young man and I love that about him, he doesn’t try to be like everyone else ❤

This year we had a little party at our place, it was family and friends that came to his party. One of our best friends came all the way up from Pennsylvania for the weekend. T was so excited to see who all came to his party and was excited about his cousins being there. It wasn’t a fancy party just a big ol’ get together to celebrate T’s birthday, but it made T’s day, so that’s all that matters. Later in the day we decided to have a little fire and make some s’mores, but by then most of the people already left, but oh well T was still having a good time. I’m just glad his birthday party was a success and that he had a great time on his birthday ❤

Last Day of School


Hard to believe that my son has finished 2nd grade and will be going into 3rd grade next school year. This school year has been a crazy one for us. T’s teacher, boy I couldn’t stand her ass, she kept taking stuff away from T even tho he didn’t do anything, always complaining about him, etc. Of course we couldn’t move him into a different class because our school is already packed since they closed the other elementary school a few years ago, so classrooms are at their max.

Then we dealt with T being bullied in his classroom & on the bus. The bus driver would keep moving his seat & didn’t help with the issues. Then one day he came home & told us about a kid threatening to fight him & that was it, we went right up to the school, made the principal leave a meeting to talk to us. We told her what happened & what has been going on with the classroom & the bus. Needless to say things got better real quick, she talked to his teacher & looked at the camera footage from the bus & got everything taken care of. She also told T to don’t be afraid to go see her if something happens. Apparently he was afraid to get into trouble for going to the principal what’s happening.

Besides from having a few problems, T did really good in school. We are super proud of him & excited that he is moving onto the 3rd grade.

Now T is enjoying summer vacation then in July he starts his summer enrichment program the school is having. Its a 4 week program each week is something different then on that Friday the kids go on a field trip that is related to what they learned that week. This is something new the school is doing and was limited to a certain amount of students & the best part is that it’s a free program!!!

Story-time with Brushstrokes

Our local library had an event, where a local company called “Brushstrokes” came in read a story to the kids & then the kids got to paint a ceramic lion. I took T to it & he had a blast, I can’t remember the story they read but it was pretty darn cute. T was so excited that he was going to get to paint a lion, but was bumming he couldn’t take it home that day. I had to explain to him, that they had to take it back to the store, put a special glaze on it & put it in a kiln. The lady said that in 1-2 weeks he would be able to get his lion, needless to say about 1.5 weeks later I got the phone call that his lion was available for pick up, along with his friends lions that he went to the event with.

I’m glad I was able to get him signed up for the event, since the last one with Brushstrokes the event was full and didn’t know about it til the day before it. I’m hoping they do another one, because it is a really awesome event and all the kids have a blast.

Watching Christmas Movies 


So we are currently watching The Polar Express & T is sitting on the couch glued to the movie while wearing his Finn the Human hat. I just giggled because it’s just too funny. This is one of the many reasons why I love my son, especially when he does silly things like this . 
Does your little ones or did your children do this? Having to wear certain things while watching a movie at home? 

Bye Bye Cast!!!


So back in September T had fallen at school and broken his arm, boy that’s an experience I do not want to re-live again. Always making sure the arm was covered when he showered, the smell that would come from the cast & how much it hurt when you’d get hit by it. But, of course we’d do it all over again if we had to, but let’s hope we don’t lol.

On November 2, 2016 was an exciting day for T. It was the day his cast was finally coming off, he had it on for about 5 weeks and his bones healed up great!! I personally have never seen a cast be taken off & obviously neither has T, so when it came to time it was pretty awesome. The doctor showed that it wouldn’t hurt, he turned on the machine & put the blade on his hand & showed it didn’t cut, so T was okay with it. It took maybe 2 mins to get the cast to come off. T got all excited that it was off, but said it felt weird & light, mainly because he didn’t have the heavy cast on anymore. Some how he managed to get a corn kernel in his cast, because when the cast came off there was a piece of corn, doctor got a good laugh out of it.

It took about 1-2 days for T to get re-adjusted to not having his cast on, but once he got better he was back to his normal dare devil self. We asked T if he learned his lesson & if he’s planning on doing it again & he said he won’t be doing it ever again because he don’t want another cast.

Broken arm


It was Friday 09.30.2016, myself & D were relaxing and getting ready to eat lunch when I got the phone call. I recognized the number it was the school, I looked at D and said “now what?”. It was the school nurse, she said that the kids were out at recess and T was up on the slide and fell off the side & the kids were saying it was about 4 feet. T is crying and saying his arm hurts, you need to come get him & get him checked out. My heart sank because I knew, if he was crying that much it was very serious. D quickly got ready & started walking to the school (we live like 4 blocks away) & I called my ma saying needed to get to Ts school cause he fell and have to take him to the hospital.

At our hospital when it first happened

We take him to our local hospital, the poor kid is in so much pain, had two ice packs on his arm. Took forever til the doctor finally came in to see him & request x-rays. Get the x-rays done and wait again for an answer. Found out he fractured his wrist & forearm bone buckled. They put him in a splint & sent us home. We gave him some Motrin & let him sleep. A few hours later & research on a buckled bone, we weren’t happy on how the hospital treated T with his arm. So little after 1 am we take a trip to Rochester Strong hospital for a better opinion on his arm.

 
We get there is 2am and we get told where to go, apparently they have a separate section for children in the emergency department. After about 2 or so hours we are finally seen & explained everything, they were kinds stunned about what our hospital did. Finally they did x-rays as well and said the same our hospital did BUT they actually casted Ts arm. He picked out blue which is his favorite color. He was so good about being at the hospital from 2am – 7am, what helped was they had TV and he got to pick movies to watch & of course they had Thomas & Friends so we watched that. The room was a split room so there was another patient, who was a little boy maybe 2 years old with a nasty cold. But the kids played together, found out they both love trains lol.

Getting his cast

We are official parents to a child who’s broke their bone. It was a very stressful day getting him proper care but that’s what parents do 🙂 He still has the cast on and is already getting tired of it but loves he don’t have to do gym til further notice. Whenever our insurance stops being assholes he’ll finally be seen by a orthopedic surgeon, that doctor however did take out of his own time to quickly look at his x-rays and said Rochester did right by casting it, and that when we are able to get an appointment with him, that he’ll remove Ts current cast, let him itch his arm, clean it & put a new cast on. So let’s hope my insurance will get me the damn referral I need since he has an appointment Wednesday.

 
It’s been an interesting journey having to help a kid care for a broken arm. It can be challenging at times as well, cause T likes to try and do a lot he normally would & can’t due to the cast. Let’s hope soon his arm will heal great & will no longer need the cast much longer.

Back to School!!!

That’s right it’s every parents favorite time of year, when the kiddos go back to school!! September 7, 2016 was T’s first day of school. He was excited and nervous that morning, he goes “my tummy hurts” I said do you feel a little uncomfortable about going to school? He says “yes”, I said hunny that’s cause you’re nervous about starting school, you’ll be okay 🙂

This year T started 2nd grade, so that means he’ll be up on the 2nd floor of the school, so I can’t blame him for being nervous. When he got home from school, he just kept going on and on about his first day. He was saying his teacher was funny and that he got to see all his friends from 1st grade when they went out to play. He was really excited because he got to see his girlfriend and had to tell me how she has a Pikachu backpack and she liked his Pokemon backpack.

I can’t believe my baby boy is in the 2nd grade already! Time sure does fly when you have a child, I can only imagine what it’s like with multiple children. I’m just glad he has a good teacher and had a wonderful first day of school 🙂
