1) Tomorrow is my Blogiversary! I can't believe I've been
writing about things nobody else cares about blogging for four years! Here was my very first post! Maggie was just a newborn when I started, and now she's four going on fourteen. My how time flies.
2) And speaking of kid's ages....
(view from the porch)
our neighbor's car:
The kids loved playing in it and Phil even took the older four sledding on Sunday, while I cleaned and Xander did this:
4) We spent the morning indoors while the snow fell, and the kids actually played quite nicely together (and separately). These small occasions fill my heart with hope that one day they will be the best of friends:
5) This little whippersnapper got in trouble at school for putting up his middle finger.
He has no clue what it means (thank God!) and for some reason tends to point with that finger. His cousin (also in his preschool class) told him to stop doing it because it was bad, and then the teacher saw him and he got sent to the principal, who explained that it's not a nice thing to do. Poor guy, he was crying so hard when he told me what happened. The teacher (whom we love) had already called me to explain the situation, and said she brought him to the chapel and Eamon said sorry to Jesus. Needless to say, I don't think he'll ever use that finger again!
6) And speaking of getting in trouble at school...
John-Paul has gotten two detentions (his first ones ever!) within the past two weeks. One was for constantly talking with the pretty girl who sits next to him, and the other was for accidentally hitting a girl while learning a dance/song in music class. At least he says it was an accident, but then the girl hit him back, and they both got detentions for hitting. We took away his snack money and made him write an apology note.
The good news is that he asked his teacher to please move his desk away from the girls he gets into trouble with because they "tempt him". Ha! I guess he understands the whole "occasion of sin" teaching in the Catholic church. The other good news is that my little bookworm talks to girls :)
And from the "I'm Obviously a Girl with Four Brothers" Files:
Maggie told me yesterday that her wiener hurt.
Have a great weekend everybody!
