2nd grade?? Yikes! I didn't wear one until....either 5th or 6th grade. I think the summer between those. I wasn't excited, it was more embarassing for me. Maybe if you're older, it's more embarassing? I don't know. Does your daughter already need a bra? That seems SO young!View Thread
What do you do when your child fights homework like the dickens? Jared is a smart kid, and does most homework without a fight at all, but writing stories just brings out the worst in him! He doesn't cry too often, but boy having to write a story can bring a lot of tears. He gets frustrated, says he just doesn't want to do it, it's boring. I've tried being right there for help the whole time he writes it, tried giving him ideas, tried making it sound exciting, etc, nothing helps.
He had to write a story over the weekend last weekend ABOUT his weekend and Jared had an idea that worked really well. He said he would go write a sentence after he did something he wanted to write about. Like he came home from his soccer game and wrote a sentence or two about that. Later in the day he wrote about how he played with his cousins. Etc. Gradually writing it over a long period of time worked great, but can't really do that on weekdays when he doens't have tons of time to do it anyways.
Seems like I remember you saying you go to Chattanooga sometimes, is that correct?
We're going for a short weekend next weekend. I've always wanted go to Ruby Falls and Rock City but it seems like they may not be toddler friendly. Did you ever take Levi as a toddler or have you been at all and would you take a 6yo, 3.5yo, and 20 mo old? Not so much for THEIR excitement, but more like accessability, ease and all that with the kids.View Thread
I kept forgetting to look for this group! Looks like some people jumped over from the 4-5 group. Jared turned 6 a few weeks ago and is doing great in kindergarten. And I haven't officially announced it here yet, but we found out we're expecting baby #4! Come November!
