School Crap

So frustrating!  Wyatt has an "F" in Math for the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd 6 weeks!!!  He can only pass if he gets "C's" for the next 3 6 weeks!!!  :-/  They're going so fast... it's like there's a new math lesson every week before the last lesson was even mastered!  Geez... I think Wyatt got lost when it was just addition and subtraction with 3 numbers!!!  It's because of Common Core :(

I met up with his teacher today.  We discussed what we can do.  She said Wyatt is very distracted... in his own world a lot of the times.  She said she can have him sit at her desk when she gives them homework time and give him incentives to actually do it.  Snacks, stickers, erasers, etc... And also that she'd have the aide work solely on math when she comes in.  She also said she'd check with learning center to see if they're working on the same lessons.  I'll talk to Wyatt about focusing in class.  I also told her I'd work on incentives too... like pay him for each grade on his weekly test papers (not "F's" obviously... maybe not even "D's" either; I'll see).  I had told her how we're working on homework until past his bedtime Monday - Thursday.  She said she'll try to get him to get most (if not all) done before leaving school (this would be at those times she gives them for homework or any other free time).

You can do anything!

So, as Wyatt plays in the dirt, he looks up at me and says, "If you think like me, you can build anything!"

Big Toe

Last night,  as we're telling the kids good-night, Jeremy notices Wyatt's big toe.  It's red, swollen, and the nail is almost 100% black!  Apparently,  he dropped something hard on his toe 3 days prior and didn't tell anyone!  OMG!  Why don't our kids tell us when they get hurt???

So, Jeremy thinks, after looking closely at it, that he needs to relieve some of that pressure.  Wyatt starts crying and shaking before anything is done.  I clip his toenails and Jeremy sanitizes a needle.  He begins poking different areas and nothing but pain for Wyatt.  Finally,  he gets it in the right spot and a thin stream of blood starts squirting out!  It went so far that it reached the other sofa!!!  Tiny drops of blood were on his Xbox controller and on the glass top of the coffee table.   After a few more pokes, Wyatt's toe looked so much better!   My poor baby :-(

So crazy that in those 3 days, not one of us noticed him walking funny (because I guess he didn't) nor did we notice his toe :-( :-( :-(

Wyatt's 8 yrs old now!

My little sweetie-pie is now 8 yrs old!  

OMG!  Time flies by so quickly!!!

I was looking at his baby pics on this blog... and missing that baby so much!

I'll bake his cake in a few minutes... have that ready for him for when he gets home from school; although, we won't do anything until his dad gets home from work :)

Today is also the last day before Christmas & New Year's Vacation :)

Oh, we bought him a bow and arrow set from Academy for his birthday :D  He's always talking about wanting a bow and arrow gun (that's what he calls crossbows)... we wanted to get him a basic bow first; let him learn on that before moving to the crossbow :D  I think he'll be thrilled! :D

Update on him:

He still likes snuggling with me on the sofa :)
He wears a 7/8 slim pants
Size 1 shoe
size 7/8 shirt
he's 48.5" tall
weighs 48.5 lbs
(Crazy how those two mmeasurements are the same, huh?)

He still has a hard time with "r" words and words ending with "er"... hehe  He actually probably sounds a lot like I did when I was a little kid!  I used to say, "puss" for "purse" and he does too... He's very aware of it and tries to correct himself and sometimes just says he can't say it.  He gets teased at school because of it.  However, it doesn't seem to bother him.  Everyday, I ask him how was school and everyday he says it was great... ha ha ha  He doesn't come home sad or upset looking... usually he has a smile on his face :D

He's doing ok in school... making about a "C" average... last year he had practically straight "A's" on all his tests... this year.... it's been harder... It's probably because of that Common Core curriculum; no one likes it.
