We love Halloween around here! Dressing up, going to parties, being with friends…and CANDY! Three out of the 6 kids have decided what they’d like to dress up as but the other kids have no clue. So far we’ve got a witch, a mermaid, and a pirate.
Blue is doing well in school, she’s starting taking a gymnastics class, she’s smiling more and talking with us. She is a sweet girl–smart too. I’m really proud of her for coming out of her shell and trying to regain a sense of normalcy. Blue is a funny girl, she makes is laugh. Last night she had a loose tooth and she accidently pulled it and it fell into the toilet. Biscuit and Blue laughed so hard and when they tried to retell the story they couldn’t get through it because of the laughing.
Busy, we’ll he’s busy. He’s not behaving well at school. I keep telling myself that he’s never been in a social environment with kids his age, he’s started kindergarten a year late so he’s older than his peers but he lacks so much when it comes to maturity. I know he will overcome all of his behaviors; he’s a sweet boy who is eager to please. Oddly enough, he is amazingly well behaved at home with us. He is kind, obedient, and funny. Personally, I feel like he is just having a hard time adjusting. Busy attended church for the first time last week, he loved it. It was a week day youth group and he was great there, granted it was just and hour and a half he couldn’t get into too much trouble in the short amount of time. He is excited to attend this week, I’m excited too.
Boychild is still doing well in school, he’s been riding his dirtbike, and just being a good kid. I’m psyched that he’s still doing well and he’s being self motivated. After all of the constant struggles with him this feels good. I’m happy that he’s overcoming his personal obstacles, I’m proud too!
Biscuit is hormonal. Sometimes she’s just not very nice; other times she’s mega clingy and infantile. She’s almost a teenager (in 4 months!) and she’s doing well in her clubs, sports, and extracurricular activities. She is the absolute funniest kid EVER and I love it. Biscuit keeps me smiling even if it’s at her own expense.
Bunny, holy growth spurt! This kid is tall. Bunny is very athletic and still struggles with gender roles; she currently secretly loves Skylanders and only her bestie knows this. She has been really into shooting and target practice, this kid has impeccable aim. She’s asked me for a bike and a new airsoft gun for her birthday and of course I’m going to make her little dreams come true. She’s also planned another epic birthday party…she’s having a runway party and froyo. Last year she had a pancake and pj’s party at iHop, she’s a cool chick. She has great grades, she’s a stellar athlete, and she’s often bratty. Yup. She’s still a weenie, I truly think it’s her personality. My pretty little jerk.
Lemon is a spitfire. She’s rocking the sight words, she’s trying pretty hard to be a good cheerleader, and she’s doing well in school. Lemon is too ballsy for her own good, she’s like a constant drunk frat boy… “Mom! Watch this!” Constant. Mayhem. And the injuries are nonstop and the worry never ceases.
