How "hyper" are You?

Could this be why my boys wear me out day after day?

You Are 35% Hyper

You aren't exactly hyper, but no one would accuse you of being lazy either.

You have enough drive to get everything done - with energy to spare.

You don't get overly worked up or rushed. You'll happily take your time.

And you definitely enjoy your down time. You can only be hyper for so long.

Unlike more hyper types, you don't have a ton of interests and friends.

You prefer concentrating on what matters to spreading yourself too thin.

Eating Crow . . . Just a Little

One of the things I admire most about the Principal at my son's school is her willingness to admit when she is wrong. That is HUGE in my book. Later today I will admit to the Principal that her instincts about C and the EA's at school this year were right. Hmmm, guess I have to eat some crow. I thought about just letting the matter slide by, undiscussed, and I am reluctant to say that I was "wrong" in my assertions. It is still early in the year but C is doing well in school, relatively speaking. There are things I need to work out with the teacher and other support staff (such as his IEP - whole other post) but overall he is doing well. The EA he originally had in the morning was brand new to the school and I guess was struggling a little. So the team had a pow wow and decided to switch the pm and am EA's - voila - things are working much better.

Like I said, I admire that our Prinicpal will admit when she is wrong and even, on ocassion, apologize. I feel I must do the same in this case, I will say "Thank you for having listened to my concerns in August and I understand why you went ahead with your plan - I really am happy that it is all working out". Not exactly hat in hand but should be good enough. As for our fabulous Principal - I know you want one too, and I hope you do have one. If you don't, sorry, I didn't learn to share in Kindergarten, she's a keeper.

Sleeping Angels, hoping for a win!

5 Minutes for Mom is having a contest to win a bedroom set from Home and Bedroom Furniture. If we won we would pick Summer Breeze Bedroom Set. I am submitting this picture (and breaking my rule to not post pics of my kids up close on here). I hope it's ok that it is of both my "angels" and not just one, I couldn't see anything in the rules that would make it a problem. This pic was taken shortly after J moved from crib to a Toddler bed. My husband went in to check on the boys and this was what he found. Note J's hand on C's forehead - they were both fast asleep. You would never know that by day they fight constantly.

If we get to be a semi-finalist you will get to vote, I hope of course you will vote for our pic. J is still in his toddler bed and needs a bigger one soon!
