I have resisted for as long as I can. I have resisted because I don’t want to be one of those mothers who brags about her children’s accomplishments, but alas, I guess am one of those mother’s
. I can’t fight it any more. Please forgive me, world.
We had the parent evening last night meeting Alex’s new teacher for the first time to discuss how he is getting on.. Ok I know her to talk to but this is the first discussion about his work in year 2
And Im so proud. In her words His reading is up there with high school kids.. His maths is good, Infact she had nothing bad to say at all, The only criticism she could come up with if she had to (again her words) is that If his handwriting was neater it would be better although its still the neatest in her class it’s just that because he is so far ahead of the rest of the kids with everything else she would love to see his handwriting up there in the high school bracket as well but she is more than happy with his writing for a 6 yr old . ha ha poor kid… high expectations.
I did warn her that I may be able to type over 120 words a min (yes I’ve been timed. years of typing for a living) My handwriting is atrocious and so is his fathers …
I am unreasonably proud of her.
Is that a sin?
Seriously you would look at anything I have written and it looks like a spider has dipped all its legs in ink and run across the page.
Ali is on full days at school now and this week wanted packed lunches the same as Alex.. wonder how long that will last.
We have a Tammy Free weekend this weekend.. but have Amber and Mary here
To be honest Tammy had a face like a smacked arse all weekend and was in a right strop.. all because she couldn’t have her own way…
next time she is here is Halloween weekend. (update she didn’t come Halloween weekend probably because she had been in trouble at school again and I bet she know we would moan)
We had a visitor last night.. Amberleigh came round with her friend and asked if she and Mary could stay the weekend of half term. now Tammy has already said she only wants to come once a fortnight now. so back to how it used to be.. (think that is because I actually make her do her homework and because I shouted at her for letting the dog out) ha ha so we have Tammy with us this weekend and Amber and Mary next weekend. One day we will have the house and weekend to ourselves ha ha
Ali has started school now… his first full time day is Monday the 18th but so far he loves it.. and so do I.. will appreciate it more though when he is gone for 6 hours. will i miss my baby or will i thrive on having “me” time again … this having kids over a 26 yr time span is getting to me, for the first time in my life I can honestly say I don’t want anymore kids.. how weird.
More good news… Allan has taken the theory test hazard test and some other one for the HGV driving and passed all three with flying colours. so he is now on his way to being a trucker… next stop is taking the driving course. which is booked in for November.. he has to do the lorry bigger than the 7.5 tonne first.. and then once he has passed that he is on his way to driving the artic’s . I was a bit pissed off though with Tammy. she has seen her dad with his head in the books for the last few weeks and when i text-ed her to say he had passed she didn’t even say a well done etc.. I am getting very fed up with this where are we going, what have you got me attitude she has. she is on report all week for not behaving at school and still expects us to take her out this weekend to spend some of her birthday money well. sorry young lady but in this house it don’t work that way you behave at school and you get treats or we go out somewhere. Now If I had my way she wouldn’t leave the house at all this weekend the only problem is I have promised the boys that we will go looking up the park to see if there are any conkers around now, missed the boat a bit here as the conker season was early according to this link
