We had our 10yo and 8you yearly checkup yesterday. It went well. My 10yo is staying about the same on her weight chart which is what we have been watching. For awhile she was going down so the hunt for the perfect amount of calories a day was quite a struggle.
So the 8yo jumps up on the hot seat and we discuss about some concerns of “paying attention”. Our first born tries to manage the household so the second born sort of just does what he wants. Pretty common, in my opinion, but our Dr had some fun ideas to keep him in line.
She talked about how she has a white board for her 9yo. When he finished all the things he needs to finish, he is allowed to watch TV.
8yo: HE GETS TO WATCH TV??!?
The look on my guy’s face. Hilarious! He never watches TV as his Friday movie nights are usually spent on his iPad or playing video games.
We are actually planning a similar board/chore/homework list for the summer so we will see how it works.
I honestly got nothing. Six days late on a self imposed weekly writeup and I can’t even get that done. Spring is here. Lots of things popping up. Normal work going on. My Dad has announced he is running for Tualatin City Council, a friend wanted some advice on social stuff, the kids have all these exciting things going on, the Hubby and family are running around getting their new business started, the house needs cleaning (haha, just kidding on that one).
I did go with Sam to get a plant last weekend. The one in our front planter has died. The gardener guy laughed at me when I showed him a picture of what I wanted. “I can’t possibly know what breed that is”, he scoffed at me. “Once you find out, let us know and we can order it.”
Thanks Gardener Dude, that’s super helpful. So we bought two other plants for small (empty) pots Hubby added to the gazebo to keep the dog from jumping the wall. The kids are in charge of watering them I wonder how long that will last.
Saw Whiskey Tango Foxtrot this morning. It was cute. Long, a little slow, kind of funny but cute. I forgot to wear my tshirt with the same saying on it! My favorite saying…
Off to Girl Scouts. Co-Leader is doing the flower badge and I hear it involves bath beads! Woohoo!
