Prepping in Day to Day

We’re working on cleaning up the house so everything will be ready this week. My mom will be staying with my bug and Thomas and I are going to Vegassss. I’m excited! I have Tuesday off, too, which wasn’t requested but works out well. I’ll be at work late Wednesday, so I can pack everything Tuesday and be ready for Thursday morning.

I’ve washed a metric ton of laundry today.. I’m over it.. And there goes my dryer yelling that it’s done with the next load… Ugggh.. Lol. Nathan’s favorite blanket is in the washer and he’s being ridiculous about going to bed without it (there are nights he doesn’t even use it, so don’t feel too bad for him.)

Oh, the ridiculousness that was this week. Nathan has apparently been such a turd at daycare that they asked us to come in to talk with them to offer insight on how to make him listen, and even mentioned the possibility of suspending him. I’m frustrated.. He’s 3, for one thing, and for another, what works for us at home with one kid won’t necessarily work for a teacher with a classroom of kids. He’s being defiant and not listening and being a little rough with other kids. He’s a stubborn, strong-willed, smart kid and 3.5 years is all the parenting experience I have, so.. Yeah. We talked to them, and he did better the next couple days, so maybe it will help. He is changing classes tomorrow, though, so we’ll see how he does.

Tuesday (Cont.)

After Thomas picked up Nathan from daycare Monday and called me while I was heading home, I asked how Nathan’s day was. He said he was good, he didn’t get any write-ups or anything because I told him to listen. 😭 he’s such a good boy.

I have today off, so we took booger to the zoo! He had such a good time. ❤ They have an awesome dino exhibit right now that was totally worth seeing. Now we’re all exhausted and still need to pack.. 😅 Time for a dose of caffeine…

Suspending a 3 year old from daycare, really? Seems like more of a punishment for the parent than the kid (maybe that’s the point).

They said they'd rather not, as he's not hurting anyone, he's just stubborn and defiant. Hopefully it'll get through to him.

Good job with Nathan. It's all new to him. When the Kindergarten teacher told me my oldest son was not staying in line, I almost laughed in her face, but eventually I learned that he had to comply, because the poor woman had 30 of them to keep track of!

That was my first thought.. Anything I do at home is one-on-one, not me vs a horde of pre-schoolers! I get that he needs to listen, but it's a daunting task.
