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!!!
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?
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.
Halloween this year was a lot of fun, at first didn’t think D was going to be able to go due to work but he decided to call off 🙂
A friend of ours who is like a sister & her son came over then we went out trick-or-treating. We only hit a few streets but the boys did get a decent amount of candy. Of course this being western new york, it was cold when we started & kept getting colder.
Later after our friend & son went home T wanted to watch “Spookley the Square Pumpkin”. Trent had a good time except at one house, the lady was a bit older & took forever passing out candy. So the kids had to wait & wait, once it was their turn the lady asked T if he was banging his bucket on the stairs railing, he said yes & she said well you don’t get any candy. Seriously?! These kids are waiting forever & just being kids & you’re going to do that? Poor T he ran to us crying, he’s just bad & can’t have candy. Of course other parents are looking at us giving us looks, like really people, it was bullshit, but whatever we left bitching & D was highly pissed off. It took a while before T was calmed down & back to himself, it really bothered him. Needless to at we know where to not go next year. Atleast he was able to finish his Halloween on a good note with chicken nuggets & a movie 🙂
We hope you all had a fun/safe Halloween. Have you ever had a problem like we did this year?!
We are currently sitting on our front porch enjoying the nice day. It’s one of those days were you just wanna be outside instead of doing homework. So today T and myself are enjoying the afternoon then later we’ll get to his homework. Besides his homework is so easy, read 15 mins, math flashcards and spelling.
Are there days you let your kid(s) do their homework later so they can enjoy a nice day?
You’re an amazing little guy for only being 7 years old and you care so much for others. You’re willing to help others out when they need it, you also are willing to donate some of your toys when you no longer need/play with so others can have.
This mommy is getting really sick and tired of your “punk ass” attitude! I love you very much but man, your attitude lately has SUCKED! I don’t know where it came from, why you have it, and why you find it necessary to have it everyday, but I think it’s time to knock it off. I don’t appreciate everyday you yelling at me and making me feel like a horrible mother. I’ve done everything right, and this is how you treat me, what did I ever do to you? It really does upset me when you do this to me everyday.
Please stop with this attitude, it isn’t good. I understand it’s tough being an only child, but mommy & daddy are trying to fix that but it may take a while. So please stop acting like an adult and just be yourself, the sweet little boy everyone loves and the little boy who is willing to help others. I don’t like this little devil you’ve become, I’ve talked to you several times about this and you still have not learned. I do hope soon (maybe with school starting in 2 weeks) your attitude will change for the better, cause it seems to get worse everyday.
Remember mommy & daddy love you very much but we are tired of this “punk ass” attitude you’ve been giving.
It’s crazy?! It seems like you were just being born and now your 7 years old?! Where has the time gone, I guess time flies when your having fun, on July 28th T turned 7 years old we can’t believe it already. It’s hard to believe he’s 7 already, but there’s times he acts like he’s in his 20s and it drives me nuts, I guess the joys of being a parent and him being an only child (which I’m hoping soon that will change 🙂 ). T is an amazing kid, he cares so much for others, he can be very polite when he wants to (any kid is like that lol) and his imagination is crazy! I just wish that as he gets older the attitude wouldn’t get worse but oh well, he’s a unique child and somethings are harder for him to understand. He has signs of Autism but also signs of ADHD, so the docs are really sure what it is, and we refuse to medicate our son so we try our hardest to understand him and control how he acts when he has his moments.
Now onto T’s birthday! This year we didn’t do a party or a cookout or anything, instead right on his birthday, daddy made him pancakes for breakfast and then we did presents. I made him a blue velvet cake with little frosting on top, and when D got home from work we had cake. T really enjoyed his birthday, even if we didn’t do much he still had a good day.
The next day which was a Friday myself & my mother took T over to our fair to watch the fireworks, wish D could have been there but he had to work. T was a little bummed he couldn’t go into the fair but we didn’t have the money because we had it saved for the next day which was a big birthday surprise. 🙂
So, now it’s Saturday July 30th and we proceed with our day like normal but try to get things ready without T figuring out what we are doing. Then we all get in the car and start heading towards Perry, NY. When we get to our destination T freaked out! We took him to Silver Lake Twin Drive-In, it’s our favorite drive in, it may be a bit far from us but always worth it. We were going to see Secret Life of Pets & Ice Age: Collision Course and he was so excited he’s been wanting to see these movies so bad! As usual we are there like 3 hours before the drive in actually opens, so after we got there we got a text someone was on their way. It was T’s aunt when she showed up he got even more excited. Then we decided to hit the arcade, we had about $20 put aside just for the arcade and only spent $14 of it and T had a blast as always playing the different games.
Finally it’s time to line up and get into the drive in, we’re always early so we can get in line early to get a good spot 🙂 T decides he wants to wait with his aunt in her car so he goes with her, we get into the drive in and T takes off playing at the playground. I would say about 1.5 hrs later someone else shows up……it’s uncle B (yes he calls him exactly that lol) T spots him across the playground to where we were parked and ran across screaming UNCLE B!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! T was so excited to see him, he ran up and jumped into his arms, he absolutely loves his uncle. It’s time for the movies to begin, T moves his chair next his uncle and we all sit and watch the movies. It was an amazing time seeing T spend time with his uncle and enjoy 2 movies with him. T said this was the best gift ever over and over. Honestly, it really is because memories last a life time (for some lol) toys and that are just material things that eventually are nothing to a child.
All in all from Thursday to Saturday T had an amazing birthday, he had so much fun and has some great memories to look back on. Happy Birthday little man, you mean the world to mommy & daddy we love you!!!
