Why am I so bad about keeping up with this? Maybe because I run a daycare out of my home and have 3 kids of my own. That might explain it, but then again maybe not. Some days I feel like a horrible person, I mean...I never updated after Disney, I ended on what? Day 3? Here we are approaching a year after the trip and I'm afraid we won't have a record of it if I don't get it down soon, but most days all I want to do after 5:30pm, when my last daycare child leaves is cuddle my kids and lay on the couch. Some days I don't even want to cook dinner! Good thing I have a wonderful husband who doesn't mind cooking for our family!
So, are you wondering what is going on here? Well, my daycare officially opened on October 1st! It's been so wonderful. Don't get me wrong there are days I want to SCREAM, but I didn't have to work retail at Christmas again. I also get to stay home with Kaitlyn. On most days I have around 6 kids, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, I am always full, but the other 3 days a week, it varies. I love having my nights and weekends free to spend with my family.
Let's see Michael...he is READING! This kid loves to read and ready anything he can get his hands on. He is spelling so much that it doesn't do me any good to spell to keep him from understanding a conversation...he can usually spell everything I want to say. He is in kindergarten right now and it looking forward to first grade. He's also doing great in Math. I was able to pretty much teach him how to carry numbers in addition with showing him once.
Patrick's biggest accomplishment right now is learning how to tie his shoes! He come home from school one day and said Mommy, I tied my shoes at school today! Mind you, we've been working on this since September! He can officially tie his shoes. His other BIG accomplishments this year include learning his phone number and how to write his first and last name.
Kaitlyn is my little princess and I don't think that will ever change even if we have another little girl. She loves shopping, purses, and shoes! Her Daddy is in trouble when she's a teenager, better lock up the credit cards now, LOL. One of her favorite things to do is go to the mall. She will start preschool in the fall and I am so looking forward to it! She needs to go to school to be with more kids her age.
So, that's my update...
