Here's Nicholai and myself, 5 months ago.
Check out the friend request I got on myspace...hahaha
. Pole dancing is the new exercise class somewhere. I would be so afraid to answer that ad. However, it does sound fun!
Dominic slept so good last night. He is usually up til about 10:30, but I put him down at 9 and he woke up an hour later, so I fed him real quick and just let him fall asleep again instead of taking him downstairs like usual, and he slept all night, only waking once. Yippie! Hope it works again tonight.
i have papers to grade. nooooooo. we start the kids changing classes for math tomorrow and i have the low group. ms. reidenbach is going to do this test program on them that guarantees they will know all their times tables in 3 weeks or your money back. it will be a miracle if it works. i'm glad she'll me doing that the first 15 minutes of every class. we're the only third grade in the world, i believe, that switches classes for each subject now. i only have my own real class for science.
i think i will be good for the low group in math, cause i was low myself! i'll tell them i know how they feel cause i stunk at math. haha.
i have a migraine. it was a crappy weekend for nicholai. tantrum city. I'm trying to burn off the pain with lots of coke (A-COLA!) and motrin. I'll be glad when I can take the real migraine stuff again, though I really haven't had many headaches lately. When I do, though--KABOOM! NOT fun with kids around. Allen was merciful and let me sleep with Dominic from 8-11 (yes, he's a LATE sleeper!) and he took Nicholai to Pep Boys--radiator changing time.
i want high speed internet back. i've paid off one credit card and paid $600 on a small one this month, so i think i deserve it. not gonna happen, though.
We went shopping for Allen's birthday gifts (note to self--call courtney to tell her happy birthday tomorrow), and Nicholai pretty much picked them all out. So, he's got an interensting bag of gifts, which i consider more SWEET and SPECIAL than whatever i would have picked...he's got a t-shirt with woody woodpecker on it and some words about auto body paint shop or something, a hand puppet monster, a card with a crocodile on it, armageddon (the best movie of all time, he says...haha--girly movie for boys), some strawberry daquari jello, and something else i forgot. then i got him a target gift card so he can get whatever he wants. i'm making bean soup for his birthday dinner cause he's been wanting it AND cause we're too poor to go out for real until next weekend, when we'll go to kyoto's or something and have a litle date night! yahoo!
I think this one's funny--looks like the paparazzi caught us or something! I look like such a priss...I think anyone would with that kind of dog. He's Reeve's dog, Happy...one of the only dogs I like, because it's smaller than most kittens, smells human, is oh-so-soft, and feels as light as a marshmallow. (Fluffy and full of air, kind of how my butt/things look here, all fluid retentive and not rid of all that baby-induced fat...they are back to normal now.) I've claimed his offspring as my own, if it ever happens. I think they'd be retarted, though, because we said he'd be mating with Reeve's sister's dog, which is his sister. That could make him even cuter, though...
