Yep, it's Friday boys and girls. Even though it is gray and misty outside, there are roses coming up in my little corner of the world. We had a parent teacher conference yesterday and got the news that our kid is really smart. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. Every day when he comes home, we ask him what he learned that day and the response is always "I don't know." I have noticed lately that he has been asking us to give him two number to add together. He has also gotten into writing letters. and spelling words. He seems to have taken to this Kindergarten thing pretty well. And even in the behavior department, she said that he is just your ordinary 5 year old boy. The poor woman has 11 5-year-old boys in one room. I will begin praying for her sanity. I don't know how she does it.
I am really excited about the event that Parker and I are going to tomorrow. Scrap Chic is having a kids craft day. Needless to say that Parker wasn't exactly thrilled when I told him that we were going to the scrapbook store. He has seen more scrapbooking supplies than most kids see in their lifetime. He has always been really good while doing so (except for that time at joanns that he almost lost and eyeball but we won't count that). But when I told him that HE was going to be using glue and glitter and stuff like that, he got that crazy look in his eyes. A five year old and glitter. Glad we aren't doing this at my house. So, it will be a fun mommy/Parker day.
Tonight we are going out for some steak.
I have been craving it for about two weeks now. I can not wait. On my way home I MUST stop at Target to get my new obsession: Pumpkin Spice Trail Mix. For the love...... it is so good. Run, don't walk, to Target. Even if you live 20 miles from a Target- still run. This stuff is that good.
I can't remember life without it. Well, ok I do because I just bought my first bag last week, but that is not the point. Buy the stuff. You won't be disappointed. If you are, then save the bag for me and I will get it from you.
Have a happy weekend! Take time to create something.
