so it was a good first day although the new teacher "she's strict" C did not have too much specific about how strict it mostly involved the disciplinary actions "if you pull a red card you not only lose 2 days of recess you have to go to the Principal's office and write your own note home" Tragic in the life of an 8 years old I reminded C that he should just not get a red card problem solved. He did have a smidge of math homework(it took him maybe all of five minutes) which was not done at daycare so no television after dinner for the boy and I told him punishments for not starting homework at daycare would get increasingly more severe. We have so much going on during the week and it is such an adjustment for him to have homework at all but I think got the point across to him yesterday, guess we'll find out this afternoon. Then there was the personal quandary to I check his homework? I went with no yesterday It was only 1 sheet he did not ask for help and quite frankly I did 3 grade once and I am not doing the work a second time plus my own class starts in 2 weeks and I 'm sure I will have plenty of my own homework. Any other mothers have an opinion on the homework helping issue?
Then we had the little get to know you project-hobby, something you like, family and so on and so forth. And the realization that the last photo of the 3 of us portrait or candid is from Christmas 4 years ago no really 4 years. And then I had a fight with D over that except he was in another room and completely oblivious to my rants about him-anyone else have 1 sided arguments? By the time I ran into him in the hallway argument in my head resolved and I told him we were going to have a family portrait done in the next few weeks. C needs a haircut so I am thinking next weekend will be perfect so I am just going to schedule something.
