Spent the last three hours making a Lego Movie themed behavior chart for the boys I nanny.
Each day they start as Emmett, at almost-great, with a reminder that they “don’t have to be the bad guy” (quoting Lucy). Moving down they’ll eventually hit Octan Robot (where they need to write an apology to whoever they hurt or disrespected and a note to their mom telling her what they did to get there), Micromanager, and Kragle.
If they make their way to the Special and end the day there all week, next week I will get and make them whatever they want for snacks or get taken out for ice cream after Tae Kwan Do.
Getting ready for the little one’s week off of school! Just because he’s not in pre-k for the week doesn’t mean I am letting him slack off. :)
He has learned his letters and asks me all the time how to spell things. He loves it. So, I made an easy “game” (if I call it a game, he will do it. Obviously) where he finds the clothespins with the matching letters to form various words. I included a picture so he would be able to identify what the word is that he is spelling.
When my employer returns late and doesn't apologize
If I was twenty minutes late and didn’t give them any warning that I was running late, I think they would have a problem with that so I find it odd that they don’t feel that I should have a problem with that.
Not much to say in my world. I worked (and we had a company meeting for two hours where I almost died because I’m getting sick), went to class, and now I’m nannying. Calling the two miles I walked to campus my workout for the day because my entire body aches and my throat is being a weird jerk. My half marathon is Sunday. WHY am I get sick? Not cool.
The simple dinner I made though was devoured by the kiddos. Green chile pork sausage with broccoli and onions, plus a little bit of Annie’s macaroni and cheese because yolo. I so badly want to skip my 9am-noon class tomorrow, but really shouldn’t. I haven’t missed any though and we’re allowed one absence… So excited to sleep. Time for homework though.
