ahhh ha!!!!

so yeah... well guess what? after that 'red'... that I thought I would not have to address... joke was on me 'cause daddy'o didn't address it with the kiddo... forgot that he is the so-called 'fun parent'... anywho... had a talk with the kiddo and Friday he got 'yellow'... hey, that works for me! lol at least it wasn't another red... (let's see how today goes...)

over the weekend I took the kiddo - along with the parentals and my other kiddo, my nephew - to Lake Eola here in Orlando ... it was truly a beautiful day! I posted the pics in Facebook -- gotta remind myself to add the link to this post when I get home. It is something that we need to do more often, just pack the bike and head out. :) link! --->>

now this weekend coming up I got lots of stuff that need to be done @ home ... re-arranging my bedroom (again!), taking care of the lawn and clean clean clean! lol

fun, uh? lol

My baby got ‘red’ at school today.

Well, let me backtrack and explain a bit. My baby boy - he is 6 yrs old, don’t tell him I call him my baby, lol - is in Kindergarten this year. His 1st year in school. Da Big School! … and they have a ‘grading’ system for how they do during the day… kinda like the traffic light… green is good, yellow is so-so and red is BAD!

So ever since school started, he has been getting greens and yellows… more greens than yellows so I wasn’t really worried. After all, I mean, he IS a kid, not a machine. He IS 6 yrs old, not 15… and this IS his 1st experience with the school system.

At one point, when I found out that he was sitting by himself, the colors didn’t mean crap to me because I felt that he was just pushed aside ’cause she didn’t want to deal with him. Later on she explained that it is a technique they have in school for the kids that get distracted easily so they can concentrate better and finish their work. Fine then.

My main worry is that he is held back a grade because, let’s be real, I wasn’t held back, his daddy wasn’t held back… that is just something that doesn’t happen, can’t happen in my book! I wasn’t the best student but dang, I was never held back. Anyway, teacher said that won’t be a reason for him to be held back… cool then!

Fast forward to today… I am at work… crazy as heck kinda day — not surprised to find out that tomorrow there is a full moon, ppl act loco in da coco around the full moon time! — and I check my cell phone and I have a missed call from the teacher… and NO message… my heart just SANK!

I panicked and started calling her back until someone patched me through and she is like… well he has been talking non stop! … and I am like… whoa, you mean he IS ok? – ’cause by then I am thinking SOMETHING MAJOR MUST have happened! — and she goes, oh yeah he is fine… I just have to talk to you about his talking… **picture moi just staring @ the cell perplexed** … and she ends the conversation by saying that he got a red today.

So excuse me if I am wrong but I think that hey, if he didn’t get his red until late April, that’s good in my book! lol I feel that now he feels really comfortable in school and hey, he is probably bored so he has to keep himself busy. Of course I will talk to him. Don’t get me wrong, he will get reprimanded. But since today his dad picked him up, I am sure that he will address it before me and I don’t see the need in him getting reprimanded twice.

Right now, am just waiting for my baby with open arms … am sure he got an earful from his dad already, he will just need mommy’s love when he gets home tonight. :)


not really... what happened that I didn't blog here? I decided to create another blog in wordpress and I blogged a bit more there but not much... all the changes @ work and the pressure of the new responsibilities I have now @ work kept me from coming here... not that I had any followers but I guess I should explain it somehow, so yeah, there... that's why! lol

not sure if it shows as a blog that I follow but here's the link -

still not sure if I will have time to keep them both up to date, however, with them being linked, it'll be easy to follow me anywhere... laters!
