My baby boy is 31 months….I can’t believe it! Here’s a side by side of J and L when they were each 31 months.
If you caught our announcement post last week, then you know our little guy was starting 1st grade this year. He was SO excited for his first day of school this Monday, especially because he would be at Daddy’s school. Here’s a few “first day of school” pics, including one of baby boy and I at the boo hoo breakfast after dropping J off at class. Psst! He handled it way better than Mommy did! [Read more...]
My husband and I have gone round and round about this topic for months. Our older son clearly shows signs of being advanced academically and although he was to begin Kindergarten this school year, Nate wanted to test him for advancement. My opposition is due to concern that we would make the wrong choice for our son and that the pressure would be too much for him. After long discussions I ultimately agreed to “just have him tested”, but I knew….I just knew he would pass.
Our little guy has been excited for weeks about taking the test. Is he a weird kid or what? LOL! He kept reassuring me, ” I’m gonna win the test Mommy.” Well, the day finally arrived today (Wednesday) and the 1 1/2 hour-long IQ test followed by a Kindergarten end of the year assessment showed that he more than qualified to advance into first grade. He scored 1st grade level in Math and 2.9 in reading, which is high level 2nd grade. He’s 5! He does need some work on sentence structure, however we’re confident he’ll pick that up quickly. So…..J is excited to announce that he will begin 1st grade on Monday!
Recently I’ve come to a conclusion about my baby boy. Many babies get attached to a special “blankie” or stuffed toy, but our little one never did. The reason why? Because I AM his “blankie”. At two, he still needs Mommy to go to sleep. We are co-sleepers and while I adore that one-on-one time I get with my little guy, it’s really time for him to transition into his own room, and bed! Plus it’s driving my hubby crazy!
He is used to sleeping on me, literally! Both an arm and leg are strategically placed on me when he heads off to dreamland…..Therefore we needed to be armed with a solid plan of weaning our co-sleeper from our bed.
