    La Texican, congratulations!

    Today at his after-kindergarten daycare, DS5 was helping the facility owner's daughter do her fourth-grade math homework. Here's hoping that the public school admins see their way clear to a grade skip to first. whistle We will know by October 15th.

    Congrats La Texican!!

    Mr W (2y8Mos) has been composing his own lyrics lately. "Twinkle Twinkle Traffic Stoplight" is just one example. And "Daddy, Look at the Bare Bear's Booty." had him in hysterics at his own alliteration last night. This morning he came up with "Waaah" words for each letter of the alphabet, ie "O - OH NO!!" and "Z-Zats not funny!!'

    Thanks guys. I couldn't be happier. I have a boy and a girl. Life is perfect. I don't know her score, or even what time she was born, I was so tired when she got here. I'll find out her time of birth Friday when I go for the paperwork lol.
    The hubby wouldn't let me buy towels that said "mamma's girl" and he bought the one's that say "daddy's princess" instead. And wyatt's been showing off to everyone- "that's my sister."

    DS7 has been in his new school as a 6/7th grader for 5 weeks. He got his first progress report today and is getting a B in pre-algebra, a B+ in science and an A in LA. The change has been amazing. He doesn't complain about the work load at all! He's working really hard and I'm so proud of him. Who knew that there was perserverance in there?

    Brag #2... He had to write a research paper for his science fair project. He's never written more than a couple of paragraphs, ever. He has been working on it for weeks without help. He insisted he could do it himself. When I proofread the finished product I realized that no one had ever explained the term "plagarism" to my son. Being that 7 yo don't as a general rule do research papers, go figure. Anyway, I had to explain it to him and told him that he would have to re-write his paper. Instead of the complete meltdown I expected he went to the computer, opened the file and asked for my help. I read the first paragraph to him out loud and asked him to tell me what he'd just heard. Then I asked him to write it down. We went through two more paragraphs until I was sure that he understood. Two hours and three pages later, he had a new paper. It's wonderful and I wanted to bust with pride at the maturity he showed and his willingness to correct his error.
