Principal for the Day

As an incentive for good behavior at our school, teachers give out tickets when students do good things. For example: pick up trash, share, help someone, be honest, complete work, etc. Then ever 6 weeks or so they can purchase items from the Pride Store. In the past we've gotten lip gloss, Legos, fluffy pillows, a basketball, notebooks. The students really enjoy it. At the end of the year students can purchase special items including an extra recess, a pizza party or being principal for the day. Principal for the day is a pretty big ticket item, 40 tickets! Well Gus decided she wanted to spend her tickets on this big prize. As part of the day the student principal helps in the office, has recess duty, answers phones, and reads to students. Gus was lucky enough to come to kindergarten to read. She did a super job with the whole day and the real principal was very impressed with her. She made her mama proud!

Oh poop!

This is an odd post I know but it is what it is.  So each of my children have gone through a period of not pooping for several days. Mr.P has now enter that stage. It is always a little concerning to the point that I spend lots of time reading articles about baby poop, messaging little bellies and anticipating the moment of the giant poo and inevitably a very big mess and complete outfit change. And of course it always happens in the least convenient places, like the sonic parking lot! 

I take a sigh of relief and put on the plastic gloves to my elbows. I warned you this was a strange post.

A little gardening

We are still in the clearing stage of gardening so today I thought we'd tackle the second half of the job. MsTay wanted to help of course. Mr.P hung out in the bouncy chair beside the garden. But that was not far enough away to escape MsTay's flying dirt.

Where is MsTay?

This morning I was snuggling with Mr.P and MsTay had snuck off somewhere, lately I can find her by the sound of running water or the rustling in the refrigerator but she was not in her usual places. I did finally find her in Gus's bed. Goofy girl.
