“Today was super super better!” is what Simon said when I picked him up today. Encouraging but I hope it translates well to tomorrow morning to his willingness to go to school. I mentioned a few days ago that Simon has recently stopped listening to me and it has proven to be a problem in the mornings. Ron leaves for work early now so isn’t able to help get Simon ready for school. After Simon wakes up, he just keeps on repeating, “I don’t want to go to school.” He delays no matter what I say, at times flat-out ignoring me. Eventually Annie convinces him out of bed and he’ll finally go with me to brush teeth and change clothes. He doesn’t want to go to school but almost always has a great day except for the little sadness in the morning when I leave for work. I hope he will figure out soon that school can be pretty fun and be more eager to go.
Ron packed Simon’s lunch last night of various “sushi” (shredded chicken, carrots, cheese), carrots, nectarine, string cheese, milk, and animal crackers. I added the squeezable apple sauce this morning. He doesn’t seem to like this brand of string cheese from Costco. He prefers the babybel cheeses. He didn’t finish everything but made a pretty good dent into his lunch.
Today was picture day at his school so he was all dressed up this morning. He said he did his “gentle smile” so I look forward to getting the results in a few weeks. Reserve your pictures with me now! 🙂
Iris had a good milk consumption day, a full 24 ounces of milk today during the time I was at work. She was noticeably heavier to me too. She is getting more and more playful hence the funny little face above.
