They did it!

Last week we had a first here at our house.  Our firstborn got in a little trouble at school.  I wasn’t really shocked by this as I had seen it coming for quite some time.  All the boys in the class are quite pushy.  It was just a matter of time before Bug got in trouble for it.  He got his name put on the board.  I know I am a little biased here, but he is normally a very good boy.

Some families believe that if the child gets punished at school they shouldn’t get punished at home.  We are not that family.  He has a great teacher, but when she gets mad, it is kind of laughable.  Don’t get me wrong, we love her, but she makes the Stay Puff Marshmallow man look tough!

So, I told him that if he got his name on the board again I was taking away TV for a week.  Yes, I did.  Sure it is harsh, but that boys loves his TV, a lot!  The last two days of the week he did fantastic.  All this week I got great reports.  We were so pleased when he was chosen as Student of the Week for his class!

Have I told you how much I adore their school?  I do!  He was recognized at their weekly assembly.


Maybe one day I can capture some pictures that aren’t blurry, but for now, this is what you get!

We also got 5 consecutive days of good behavior from the Butterbean too!   Their class doesn’t have a Student of the Week yet, but for us to get 5 good days in a row from him is pretty fantastic!  Did you know he still likes to bite?  Yep, at three and a half he’s still working on that.  It’s awfully cute when you pick him up and he is so excited to tell you, “I didn’t bit anybody today!”

We let Jackson pick a special treat.  He decided that he wanted to go see the movie The Lorax and go eat at Senor Frog’s.  We went to the movie yesterday, it’s really cute.  We had to wait for Senor Frog’s.  It’s Spring Break in these parts, and we like to keep it PG around here. So we will be heading over there when we think the rowdy Spring Breakers are sleeping it off!

Did you know that he chose Senor Frog’s for his birthday too?  5th birthday at Senor Frogs.  Don’t judge, please!

Here’s proof!


Awe!  He is so sweet!

We are so proud of our boys.  For them to both have a great week at the same time makes me {finally} feel like I’m doing something right!

God help me, it sounds like I am going to be brought a big lesson in humility real soon!


  1. Do we need to mention how old Miller's mother was when she stopped biting? I think not! Apple hit every branch falling from that tree "Distructo."

    Love Aunt Chele

  2. Senor Frogs, I have been there but I don't remember eating.
