Happy...Excited...Sad...Freaking out

I'm experiencing all those emotions at the same time. Today, I registered Bubba for Pre-K today.

In our school district, Pre-K is part of the public school system. He will go in the afternoons, 5 days a week for 2.5 hours every day. And he will be bused from my front door to the school then back to my front door. Yeah!


He has his placement test next Wednesday and I'm freaking out a little.

He's a smart kid but I'm wondering if he's smart in the right areas.

He knows the alphabet, can count to 15, knows his colors...but he doesn't recognize letters or number well, he has a very hard time drawing shapes and tracing in general.

He is a very active child and I feel like I should have insisted he sit and draw more...I'm worried that my approach of teaching when I can (we could how many scoops of sugar is needed when we make something, or I'll ask him the color of a car we walk past...that kind of thing) is going to hold him back.

My biggest fear is that they will tell me he isn't ready for Pre-K and to try again next year.

He is a smart kid and very much a sponge. He uses words many 4 year olds don't know and uses them correctly...and I'm not just talking about the cuss words :0)

He can throw, kick, catch and hit a ball...he tells stories about things that we did weeks ago...he tells stories about things from his imagination.

I am so worried.

My back is killing me. I'm really not sure how much longer I'll be able to take this pain...and I have a fairly high tolerance (example, I was off my pain meds within 2 days of both my c-sections.)

I'm not able to do what I want and need to do. I can't play on the floor with the kids because, well, I can't really get back up to easily...and that's not good when you are potty training a 2 year old :0)

I am in such pain when I bend over to load or unload the dishwasher...running the vacuum is almost impossible.

Ugh. Hubby says if I'm not feeling better tomorrow I need to go to the doctor. Like the doctor will be able to do anything. He hasn't been able to help in the last 7 months what makes Hubby think he will help me now :0(

The kids were great today. Diva is doing so well with her potty training and it's great to see Bubba cheer her on.

I'm so amazed at how much my children love each other, and how much they show each other the love.

Well, I'm off to see what I can do to relieve this pain in my back, butt and left leg as well as the burning sensation I've been having in my feet.

Sweet Dreams!

July 25, 2010

Well, Sunday is almost over...great time to start a daily blog, huh?

My kids went on their first sleepover Saturday night. They went down to Hubby's aunts for the night. Took me this long to let them spend the night anywhere :0) They were fine, I knew they would be.

They had a blast! I mean, they got to stay up late, then their aunt made them scrambled eggs with hot dogs for breakfast (I know, it sounds weird, but try it sometime), took them swimming and they had McDonalds for lunch.

Hubby and I decided to treat ourselves to a night out. We went and saw Inception. It was a good movie, but my back started hurting about 30 minutes into the's a 2 hour and 22 minute movie :0(

So here I sit...sort of...on my heating pad, having taken a dose of pain meds and I'm blogging.

I'm also trying to figure out what I will need to take along with me when I take Bubba over to the elementary school to get registered for Pre-K, since it's part of the public school system here.

My baby is growing up. My little 2 lb 15 oz preemie (born 9 weeks early) is doing pretty good for himself :0)

Well, I can feel that I'm starting to babble...and the fingers aren't doing what the brain is telling them...I'm signing off for now.

Sweet Dreams!
