Glasses for my boy

When my oldest son got his first pair of glasses in the first grade, I felt bad about him having to get them. But I wasn't surprised either that he needed them.  I got my first pair in the 3rd grade and while mine are mostly for reading, his dad however can't see without his glasses or contacts. I will have to say though that he has done excellent with them and we have rarely had any mishaps with … [Read more...]

Seriously This Kid Doesn’t Need To Grow So Much

But I guess that is what kids do, so I can't really stop it. I guess I am just in shock from buying my 9 year old's shoes yesterday in the men's section at the shoe store yesterday. In a size 6! That is only one size smaller than my shoe size in men's shoes. And I only know this from when I used to play soccer in high school and bought a size 7 in my cleats.

Wordless Wednesday – First Day And Already Homework

Not so wordless today. This is my smarty boy, he thinks that if he gets all of his homework done in the car that it will give him more time to play World of Warcraft when we get home. Though I do have to say he is right, if he has it all done and no chores he does get to play. And since he has always done so well in school I let him go for it. … [Read more...]

Please Don’t Let This Be a Sign

Of how this year is going to be. It is only the second day of school and we already have our first note! And while I am a bit upset about it, I would be fooling myself if I didn't expect it at some point this year.
