Seth was struggling a bit in school about a month ago. I was completely shocked when I received the poor progress report. I was so mad at his teacher because I was sure it was all her, as dumb Moms like me do. After a conference with her and her teaching partner, it all changed. I was able to explain Seth to them and they turned it around along with Seth. He started feeling the love from them and he started reading up a storm. Since then he has read all of the Roald Dahl books, yes ALL of them except for "going solo". He was bored and I said, "don't read it". I liked it but maybe it is a little advanced for him. Now he is reading the Harry Potter books and I am so excited for him! Wow, what a turnaround. We could not interest him in any books besides graphic novels before. Nate and I tried and tried. He is also excelling in piano. He asked to start taking lessons again. He keeps skipping ahead of his teachers assignments for him. He plays the piano instead of video games or anything else with his free time. It is fabulous.
I think I am in shock. What the heck do I do with a girl? Will she hate me? I am excited too. I will do her hair and dress her until she doesn't let me anymore.Gotta change my blog soon. Maybe I'll post ultrasound pictures when I get a little bit better ones.
Scott was working late once again on Halloween. It is the last day of the month every single year, go figure. I took the boys trick or treating with some families in the ward after a picnic at the park. It was great fun. Perfect weather! Scott came home at 8 and took them out for another hour! Gotta get all of the candy we can right? I only had 1 trick or treater. I had to donate all of my door candy to Seth's teacher and Scott's work. I am ready to throw away all of the kids candy to get rid of it too. I hate it and love it too!
I think everyone is hogging all of the baby girls. I love my boys. My perfect idea of my most loved babies are boys. I want to hold them and love them and squeeze them. But... will I ever get to take a girl to Ballet class? Make ringlets in her hair? Pick out gobs of pink clothing? I want that.
