So, I was publicly shamed. Shame to my house! Shame to my family!! Nicole called me out for not blogging recently. Since it has been increasingly difficult for me to sit down and actually blog at my computer, I thought I would do more of it from my phone. So I redownloaded the app. I wrote some posts- posted them. And walked away. That is how busy I have been- I haven’t even been able to read my own blog. Yes, I do that. And my own facebook. And my own instagram. And my own twitter. I know. I know. But I am just so damn clever sometimes, I can’t help it.
Regardless, Nicole called me out on facebook and told me to post- which I started to do tonight. Then I saw what I did- so look at that- over a month with no posts and now three posts in one day. In one day!!
Nico is hilarious lately. He says some pretty funny things. And he is starting understand the fine line between funny-cheeky sass and disrespectful back talk. Which is awesome. A favorite of late: “It’s getting really boring listening to your annoying face.”
The recently completed the standardized testing at his school. He was ranked highest in his class- and in the 98th percentile- for math and reading. It wasn’t really surprising, since we see how easy the homework is for him. But it was cool nonetheless.
But in case you were thinking that Nico was getting too smart and sophisticated. Keep in mind that this week I cut the sleeves off of a camo t-shirt for Nico. Like his mom- Nico is a touch fussy about his clothes going to school. He obsesses (a tiny bit) when he gets toothpaste or a spot on his tshirt. Wednesday we discovered paint on the sleeve of his camo tshirt and he was starting to get worked up about it. So when I walked him into class, I borrowed a teacher’s scissors and cut the sleeves off. My son wore a sleeveless camo tshirt. To school. In Chicago. 🙂
