The words that are off-limits

When my son was in preschool, he came home with the announcement that one of his friends got in trouble at school for saying a bad word. As nonchalantly as I could, I asked what the bad word was. As quietly as possible, he said, "hate."…

What do you mean "lockdown"?

My son came home from school talking about how they had a lockdown drill. I didn't know what that was. He explained the procedure they followed to lock themselves in a classroom and to stay out of sight "in case a burglar or bad person" came into the school.…

Reading program in school

My son has fear in reading. The worst part of his school was reading. Well still it is. He said the teachers don't let them play all time, sometime he had to study too, so school isn't 100% good time pass.
Recently his school started a reading program. So, from now on everyday they give some books to the students to pic up according their choice and then take it at home. Every night parent's duty is to sit the kids with their given book and let them read by themselves unless…

Getting to know your child's teacher

This year, I am going to be better prepared.



In Kindergarten, I wasn't fully involved in the one (and only) parent-teacher conference I had with my son's teacher. I (somewhat naively) thought we would have more than one conference. But we didn't. And I missed my chance.…

Learning how to play at recess

Every evening at dinner I like to ask my son what he did at school. If I am lucky, I will ask the specific enough question to get him to tell me about an actual event that happened (instead of getting the "I don't know" or "it was good" stock answer). I love it when he tells me about his day, and it is worth it to figure out the right series of questions to get him to talk about it - suddenly a whole world of information will come out of…

He's got his Father's eyes and his Mother's algebra skills

As mentioned on this blog before, math and I have had a rocky relationship. I try not to talk to my son about it though. He is still young enough that I want him to acquire his own likes and dislikes at school. (So far: He doesn't like music class, but all the rest are fine. That makes sense to me - my son has never been much of a singer.)…

Redesigning the school year

My son has caught me in a technicality.



The problem is that I told him camp lasted all summer but he knows that summer lasts through most of September. I failed to tell him the difference between "school summer" and "seasonal summer."…

I am not interested in doing homework

The other day I reminded my son that camp would be over soon, and it would be time for him to return to school.



He frowned at me.…

You gotta know when to push them (part 2)

On Monday, I shared some of the ways that I push my son so he learns about money and doesn't give up on trying new things. And that is all fine and dandy. But the real challenge for me will be pushing him academically without become a crazy, overbearing Mom in the process.…

Getting sick at daycare

My son started daycare at 6 weeks old. I remember the heartbreak of leaving him (he was so little!) and the relief of picking him up on that first day (he had gotten bigger!). I did love that facility - the nurturing attitude, the brightly lit rooms, the web cameras for me to check in on him throughout the day.…

Reading for reading's sake

My son is a reader. He loves to visit our secondhand bookshop to get new books, he reads on his own all the time and he tells me that his current chapter books are too easy. (Am I bragging a little here? Yes.)…

Leaving the cereal on the shelf

I ate breakfast every morning when I was little - oatmeal in the winter, cereal in the warmer months, pancakes or waffles on the weekends. Breakfast was, after all, the most important meal of the day. I probably needed that meal to sustain me as the nuns were not going to let us eat again until lunch at 12:30.…

Returning to pen and paper

I still use pen and paper for a lot of things: Shopping lists, stories for my other blog, notes at work and planning events. Since I went to college when laptops weren't a thing, it still feels more natural for me to take notes with pen and paper than by typing them. Also, I feel that I tend to remember things better if I write them down.…

The Karate Kid Check-In Part 2

Early bird gets the worm…

I don’t know what it is about this gym, but I really like it there.  The lady who seems to be in charge was there alone when we arrived early for class and I talked to her about Martial Arts a little since we had time.

With that time I immediately asked some…

Why Our Child Goes to Public School

Monday when I dropped Elijah off at school, I noticed the message on the school marquee sign about kindergarten registration. I can hardly believe that it’s been almost a year since that same announcement made my heart sad.

Last year at this time, Brad and I…
