Part of me dreads Mondays and Tuesdays as I spend so much time rushing around! But really once they are over and done with for the week I realise that it wasn’t so bad!
Maybe this week it is because yesterday wasn’t a rush at all.. we didn’t go to our friends house in the afternoon so actually only had the swimming lesson at midday and then nothing else all day. Well I say nothing else but all the kids all had some time on the computer, either on Reading Eggs or Khan Acadamy, and there was a good amount of playing with Lego, marble run and playmobil.
Today didn’t start terribly well as Thomas has been in a weird mood and by about 10am I’d ended up shouting at him for thumping Ben He didn’t really improve all day to be honest and nothing I said or did made any difference. He really seems to be struggling to control his emotions at the moment and I am struggling to know how to help him.
When he is in a good mood however he is lovely!
Work-wise, this morning we all did some handwriting sheets and Jasmine did her French worksheet and a lesson on Reading Eggs. After lunch it was time for Thomas’ swimming lesson and again he did really well. His teacher is certain he can swim and it is just a confidence thing – I completely agree! So next week they are going to work on confidence with no floats, although I won’t remind Thomas of that just in case he gets too nervous.
After swimming the kids watched TV while I finished getting dinner ready, and after dinner it was time for Jasmine to go to Brownies. While she was there the boys tidied the toys and watched more TV. And then when we picked her up there was great excitement as she has the Brownie Bear! So now I have a week of photographing that everywhere we go 😉
