it just gets harder and harder to get everyone up and moving in the right direction. Just one more week until we track off...I think I can make it. But, I really wish vacation started today!!!!
On the upside, Thing Two seems to be overcoming yet another school hurdle. While his handwriting remains rather sloppy in general, he is starting to space out his words and the other evening, he wrote me a letter.
Now, before you say "oh, how sweet is that?", I should clarify that it was hate mail. Yep, he was angry that I sent him to his room for getting frustrated with his game boy. Off he stomped.
Only, he couldn't find paper to write his letter...so he used a kleenex.
His note read: "you are the worst mom ever!"
I cried when I read it: happy tears...because every word was spelled correctly and I could read his handwriting. Yep, sometimes even those hate letters make us smile because by golly, he's getting there.
OMG: would you look at the time...I'd better get my rear in gear and start the day.
