Homework and Children

katty-2009Here’s the cat, enjoying some winter sunshine by the tree. Now that there are presents around it, he can burrow under it like usual. I think he’s rather put out about that.

I’ve been ignoring my blog lately. Poor, lonely blog. I’ve just been busy and in the evenings I have so much to catch up on, the last thing I want to do is blog.

I will try to do better.

People who have more than one child are saints. Seriously. I have no idea how they do it. I can barely handle one and that one sometimes makes me want to rip all my hair out.

So on Tuesday, the kiddo had a dentist appointment. I had to pick him up from school early. Went to dentist and got a great report – no cavities! Yay!

As it turns out, the kiddo left his binder at school. With all his homework in it. Which meant he couldn’t do any homework on Tuesday night. So guess what? On Wednesday night, we did two and a half hours of homework. 😐 Spelling, science, math, coloring. He was so slow at coloring, I made him finish it before I’d give him his dinner (mean Mom). And then he was so slow at everything else, it was 8:30 before he finished it all.

And then he’s started coughing. And sniffling. Great. I’m trying to doctor him now before he gets a full blown cold (or – worse – the flu) but I don’t know if I can avoid it. Hopefully it’s just something in the air. I feel the same way but I know mine is allergies. I really don’t want to have a sickie on Christmas. That would be a total bummer.

Incidentally, I can’t believe Christmas is NEXT WEEK. Who allowed it come to so fast? I still have presents to wrap and a dinner list to make and STUFF to do. And tonight is the parent meeting for basketball which starts right after the first of the year. Blech.

Okay that’s it for me. Happy Thursday, ya”ll!

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
