Fooled Into School 3 Weeks Ago


Cool? Spool? Uh….What?

Say What

 

Yeah….School. That’s what it sounded like.

That's What I though

 

No thanks! I’m kind of booked up. I’m hanging with my dog.

Hanging with My Dog

 

I’m running with sticks, but only sharp ones.

Running With SticksI

 

I’m working on my dance moves. You’d be surprised how much fine tuning they need.

Working on my dance moves

 

(Okay…..That did not work.)

Not Sure How To Get Out

 

Plan A: (smile)

 

I'll Use My Smile

 

Plan B: (intimidate)

I'll intimidate

 

Plan C: (heartfelt plea) “Mommy. You already doubled my speech each week and just about quadrupled my OT. Aren’t you worried you might be overworking my fragile self? Plus, you know I’ll miss you. School can’t give hugs like you. And….you’re so pretty, even when you aren’t.”

heartfelt speech

 

Serious?! Three days a week??!! And you’re going to work with me at home too??!! Well…..I take back that pretty part.

not working

 

THEN IT WAS THE MORNING OF THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL:

Uh…..So you slept on it and still think it’s a good idea?

serious about school

 

Mommy. My dinosaur might attack you if I’m not home to hold him back.

dinosaur no

 

(None of it worked, so I did what people nowadays seem to do to get what they want. I took my clothes off. ……. Mommy put them back on. I didn’t think that far ahead.)

I’m Back!


Did you miss me? I’ve been gone awhile. Just like with most stuff, it’s mommy’s fault. Maybe daddy’s fault too. I don’t know. It’s not mine. Do you want to hear all about my adventures? Okay….First…

Back1

Oh Shitake Mushroom…..Mommy is making me go to school. Guess you don’t get to hear my stories now. See what I mean. Not my fault!

Back2

Back to School (….Where oh where did my break go?)


Seriously?

It’s time for school again.

I thought that break thing was permanent.

Justice Back to School Jan 2014 007

Uh mommy……I really think this tire is going to be lonely if I leave.

What? You don’t care?

Just give me a minute mommy. I need time with my tire.

Justice Back to School Jan 2014 010

Dear God, up in the sky…..my mommy doesn’t understand. Please give her the brains she needs. Also…..can you make sure my tire is safe during this cold time and is not too lonely when I am being made to go to school? Maybe you could do something, like make it super cold tomorrow so school is closed and I don’t have to leave my tire again. Just think about it. I know you are busy trying to fix my brothers and sister, but if you have time……. And…..don’t forget my mommy’s brains. I heard she lost her mind. That’s the word around the house. Please help with that too. Thanks God.

AMEN……

Justice Back to School Jan 2014 011

I’m ready, but I’m not happy.

And…..Are you sure you’re taking me straight to school? My left hand is tucked into my coat again. You aren’t going to take me to the corner to get money again………are you?

Be honest mommy. I might need to pray again.

Justice Back to School Jan 2014 015

(UPDATE: Thanks for making it super cold. School is closed tomorrow.)

Football, Tooth Care and My Wife is Back (Day: 35 & 36)


Last Thursday (Day 35) we played football at school.

Here I am, getting ready to kick the hiney out of this ball.

Football1

What the whatnots?!!  Where’d that girl come from?

Why are girls always taking everything a guy has?

football3

Little did she know…..I have two balls. I’ve still got this one.

Let’s try this again before she comes back.

FRIDAY IS A BLUR!

On Saturday: I taught my big brother synchronized dancing. He’s not that good.

Saturday Fun

Sunday was church.

I get to go in a room and play the whole time. I pulled the long straw with that agenda.

Check me out! I’m practicing good hygiene before we go.

Brush teeth 1

When we got back I chased leaves.

I wasn’t successful, but it was fun.

Catching Leaves

This is me again, (Day 36) doing the hygiene thing.

I’m getting good, except I throw my toothbrush when I’m done.

In my defense, I’ve been playing football and it’s kinda like a touchdown using the “in your face” ball smack down.

Brush Teeth 2

After school, my wife came over.

I found out she’s going to be living with us for twelve hours each week. That’s seems like too much. Daddy told me that’s about as much time as most people see their wives. Sometimes more! How do dudes do it? 

wife 1

I’m hiding from her now. I hope she doesn’t find me.

wife 2

Oh…..She found me and someone gave her the wife manual on wrestling moves.

wife 3

We’re going to bed now. Separate beds of course.

I don’t need my wife all up in my face when I’m trying to rest.

I’m not a piece of meat.

wife 4

Are you in the right circles? (Days: 33 & 34)


DAY 33: Here I am working on my circle skills. This is not trickery courtesy of my mommy. That is my handiwork people.

Happy Gilmore and Picture Day 017

No school on Tuesday cause the grownups around here had to use the schools to do something called voting. They had to go fill in someone else’s circles. Mommy and Daddy must have been embarrassed because they had to hid behind a curtain to do it. Then someone gave them a sticker when they were done. Sounds crazy to me.

I hide and do things. I don’t get stickers.

DAY 34: This was Wednesday. Today was picture day at my school. I don’t need to worry about my looks, so I decided to keep working on my circle skills.

Happy Gilmore and Picture Day 051

Time for school.

Bringing my pad with me.

Happy Gilmore and Picture Day 054

Oh shitake mushroom!

Who put that drop there?

Happy Gilmore and Picture Day 055

It’s good.

I’m up.

I got this.

Happy Gilmore and Picture Day 056

Okay. Can you put the camera down and help me down these steps?  You know I can only keep my eyebrows up like this for so long.

Happy Gilmore and Picture Day 059

Not talking to you. (Day 23/24)


“Keep walking. I’m not interested in anything you have to say.”

Talk 1

“Eating here! Can’t a guy get a moment with his eggs?”

Talk2

“Can’t you take a hint? I’m pretending to talk to a bush for goodness sakes.”

Talk3

BE AWARE: I don’t talk to just anyone.

Let’s take a mental health day. (PreK Day: 22)


I can’t believe you took me from my warm bed and brought me down stairs when I was still sleeping.

Seriously? Where is your love for me?

Just give me five more minutes.

Justice NO School Day 22

You know mommy, it doesn’t look like a good day to go to school.

BE AWARE: I don’t always get my way.

DSC_0703

Fine. I’ll go, but only because you’re making me. But….I’m not going to be happy about it.

“I thought staying up till 1a.m. would be a Get Out of School Free Card.

Mommy is such a meanie!”

It’s Monday? Where’d the weekend go?


I’ll tell you where it went…..to pieces. It was picked up by a tornado called “My Parents” and tossed around like a rag doll. I’ll try to lay some of the scraps out for you. I was able to rescue a few moments with things you should be aware of.

Friday night: I was playing Peekaboo with a STRANGER while waiting in line at a department store my mommy and daddy took me too.

BE AWARE: I play games and interact with the human race.

FRIDAY

Saturday: That was a pretty big day for me. It was our Fall Festival parade and I was on a float for Special Olympics. I’m in the back sitting on mommy’s lap.

BE AWARE: I’m an athlete.

I’ll be a Young Athlete for Special Olympics until I’m eight-years-old. Then…..I can compete in stuff.

LOOK! We have a big torch and everything.

Float

I didn’t think we should throw candy without testing it first.

BE AWARE: I care about public safety.

Lollipop

BE AWARE: I learn stuff.

Sunday: Mommy drew a circle on the left. She did okay, but a little messy.

My circle is on the right. I think mine is just as good. I even added some extra stuff just because.

SUNDAY

Today (PreK/Day 21): Here I am this morning, checking the safety of the tunnel before my train goes through.

BE AWARE: I can get away with not wearing a shirt.

Day 20 Train

Now…..I am getting ready for school. I was pretty late (1.5 hours).

Someone, this friend I know…….Yeah that’s it, woke me up a few times during the night. They made me jump around, throw stuff out of my crib and kick the rails. This happened a few times. Mommy let me sleep in.

BE AWARE: I try to figure things out for myself, like putting on my “special shoes”. OR….Playing with the Velcro straps because it’s cool to do that.
