I realized I hadn’t updated on those two things that I talked about before, so I thought I would shoot you a few developments.
Monday this week, Charlotte asked if she had to go to school. And Chris said…no, why, do you want to go (it was labor day), and she said no, I don’t like Miss Mary, and so I said, Is she mean to Charlotte? And Charlotte said, she is mean to everybody. 3 year olds dont need mean teachers.
Case closed on THAT, you know? My dad said it was a good thing she recognized that the teacher was just plain old mean, maybe not singling her out? Although that cookie thing……..we dis-enrolled her obviously.
Wed this week I went and checked out a local Montessori School. Honestly, I fell in love. The layout was great, the schedule is wonderful, the staff was long term and seemed caring. But not to jump the gun, so they invited us back to see a classroom in action today. We went in this morning and the first thing they do is take the kids out to the playground at 8-830. Its brilliant! IT gets all the energy out of the kids first thing and the kids are happy to be dropped off. We got there and Charlotte went right out and played with the kids. Then they went inside to do ‘circle time’ and introduced Charlotte. She sat right down with the kids and they all sang songs. The teachers seemed to have great control and the kids were happy. More importantly, Charlotte gave us, LITERALLY, a two thumbs up. My baby ain’t stupid. HA!
She asked to go tomorrow. So I am going to go enroll her tomorrow and Ill tell you, it was divine intervention because the cost is the EXACT same as I was paying at the crazy school!
Now on to my cousin. Remember she moved in so we could help her get her GED. She did start her GED classes and a week later…….found out she was pregnant. Sigh. However, she is handling it well, she is still in classes and doesn’t want to quit or even make a decision where she is going after this till she is done. I am proud of her. She helps out a lot around here. She has TERRIBLE evening sickness and has been very dizzy, even though she drinks a glass of water an hour. Any suggestions on what could be causing that? She is about 8 weeks pg. What about anemia? Too soon? If you have any old pregnancy books that are awesome that you are not using, i cant seem to find ANY of mine and she has a ton of questions. We did go to the library, but i would love to give her some. I would be willing to pay media mail shipping on a few if you want to toss them my way. Being 18 and pregnant….I cannot imagine.
We told her she was more then welcome to stay here till she has the baby so we can get her proper medical care and know she is eating right and all of that. Plus her mom is pulling her to go one way, her dumbass 24 year old, good for nothing boyfriend is pulling her to another state. I just think its too much for her to decide right now. She needs to get that GED and then start figuring it out.
Last but not least, I have apparently poisoned my cousin and DH tonight. They are both laying in bed miserable that their stomachs/heads are killing them and it was dinner. I have no clue what they are talking about. Dinner was fabulous and I feel great.
*evil plan of Dhs insurance plan coming together, muahahhahaha*
Whats going on in your world?
