On Tuesdays Andrew comes home with a homework folder that has 4 or 5 worksheets for him to do and then turn in on Fri. The teacher doesn't want them to turn it in early if they get it done early, so when he finishes his folder I set it on the piano and try desperately to remember to put it back in his backpack for Friday. This has only been his second week of homework and I was TERRIFIED that I would forget to put it back. So I was stressing over it all week! Come Friday morning I remembered and was so proud of myself. Then, Friday afternoon after I pick up Andrew from school and after we've run some errands, he tells me that he needs to remember to take his homework folder to school on Mon.!!! WHAT?!?!?! I told him that it was in his back pack, he said he never saw it. All I could think of was that this WASN'T happening!!! His second week of homework and he's already forgetting to turn it in? I told him that Connor does the same thing and so that his grades aren't very good. He told me that Connor just doesn't think sometimes. Sorry Connor. When we got home I had him look in his back pack and sure enough, there it was under the papers HE had put in to bring home. I still don't know how he didn't see it. So on Mon, I made sure he gave it to his teacher, I had him carry it in his hands into class. WHEW!!!
Then on Mon we found out that we are having a little girl!! Andrew has decided her name should be Ally, this came after I said no to Aubree and he tried to tell us it should be Aully....Aubree with an l instead of br. Yesterday when I was talking to Ben I asked him if he wanted a baby sister, he said "No thanks" At least by last night he had decided maybe it would be OK, but he does change his mind a lot.
