I went into the classroom this morning. In writers workshop, they are doing opinion pieces in the form of letters. I was walking around & saw that DS was working with the teacher at that point & saw his said dear mom. Another walkby revealed his said, please stop yelling.
it apparently "hurts his ears." I find this laughable because 1) I barely yell that loud & 2) I don't even yell that much (I suspect he stole the idea from another kid because I heard a boy present & use that one lol) & when I do it's more of a raising my voice because he has blatantly ignored me for the umpteenth time when I tell him to do something OR he's the one yelling at ME. I asked if he told the teacher THAT. That's the thanks I get for volunteering my time all school year. Gee thanks, kid. & of course he had to be working with the teacher, too on it as well. hopefully she didn't really take it too seriously because once I leave he's constantly hanging on me kissing & hugging me so how bad of a mom can I be.. gee whiz

We have soccer after school. I'm also going to clean out my guest room/office to prep for our company this weekend. I'm so glad that SO isn't bothered by how close we are to DSs family. We will have a full house though!
Working on day three of getting my 10,000 steps in. It's so nice here right now!

@threegiraffes you could make an after school only box. When you get home here are your choices. This helps take it off of you and helps her to self direct. Or, make a list of her choices to help her know what she can do. DS did this for a while and I told him if you want me to tell you what to do I'll give you chores...he chose from his options right quick!
DD asked what we were doing after school.....ON THE WAY TO SCHOOL. Kid, we have 7 hours. It's every day she micromanages and has to know what we're doing every single minute. I can't just say playing, reading, and your shower. She wants exact details.
It's been this way since about Christmas. She has to be told what to play. Once she's tired of one thing she asks what else to do. I don't think it occurs to her to use her imagination and think of something on her own. It gets really old being asked over and over what she should do.
ds is similar with the questions but then he's usually good about entertaining himself for the most part. He always wants to know an agenda & then says "that's boring" even though we have a full day planned for the weekend, for example 😐 okay, kid. This age is tough.

Yesterday at therapy we found at the center is closing. They called it "merging" with a hospital system but I honestly don't see it going well. It's gonna start in August. Little bit of a longer drive. They claim billing will be the same but this hospital system sucks with billing. He did speech once before through them & though it was covered they just sucked. I had to be super diligent with my records & such. The center claims the staff is gonna be moving over there as well & it's just gonna be a "new building" so hopefully they keep their billing person. I just smell trouble/their downfall. A bunch of their staff left last year, now we know why. I bet they knew this was coming. It sucks.
