Three Things Right Now

I do these "Three Things" posts every so often and thought it was only fitting to have one to kick off 2017.  So here we go...


- ONE -
Luke is playing basketball for the first time and he's LOVING it!  We're having the best time watching him play and it is so fun to see his personality come out on the court.  Luke is analytical and he thinks through how everything works and you can see him thinking through things as he plays.  He had a great assist last weekend and we are so proud of him!

- TWO -
We were at the dentist this week and Luke was SO EXCITED to see his adult teeth on the x-ray :)  He's lost 3 bottom teeth but is on pins and needles for those top suckers to come out.  He's crossing his fingers they come out soon and I'm crossing my fingers that losing them doesn't undo all the speech work he's been putting in. (but really!!! Speech people... is it going to be rough???)

- THREE -
Luke's backpack weighs a million pounds.  I picked it up to hang it the other day and y'all... it was nuts.  He has like 5 novels in there, a set of Snap Circuits, a water bottle and about a dozen other random things.  Dave pointed out that he just might inherit his tendency to have a bag of random stuff from his mama.  ;)  Before we know it that bag will be weighed down with textbooks so I'm loving that it's packed with fun little boy stuff right now.




- ONE -
We're working our way through his sight words and while it's still a PAIN IN THE BUTT a lot of days he's been making wonderful progress and slowly but surely gaining confidence and finding success.  He was doing great with being active while working on them (jumping on them, throwing things at them, etc.) - but when we pulled out the flash cards he would shut down. This wouldn't be a big deal EXCEPT that flashcards are how he's evaluated at school... so, despite his resistance, we typically will work through them in a tactile way and then sit down with the flashcard stack.  

- TWO -
Mason has been busy planning his birthday party... for April :)  He is already SOOOO excited and it's absolutely precious.  He wants to do art and golf and make pizza and decorate cupcakes AND have a bounce house annnnnd about 15 other things.  He hasn't settled on an exact plan yet, but he obviously has lots of fun ideas.

- THREE -
Mason's love affair with blueberries is going strong.  If I want to make his day all I have to do pick up a fresh pint of blueberries just for him.  He will sit down and eat the whole container if I let him and I often catch him sneaking them from the fridge.  I guess if he's going to sneak a "treat" from the fridge I should be thankful it's blueberries :)




- ONE -
Griffin LOOOOVES Beauty and the Beast which makes my heart so happy!!!  Beauty and the Beast and Little Mermaid were my two go-to's growing up and I love having an excuse to snuggle up and watch it with her.  I mean - Belle is the best Disney Princess hands down!

- TWO -
Griffin's favorite food right now (who are we kidding - it's been her favorite for months!) is macaroni.  She calls it "rongi" and would eat it for every single meal if we let her.  We can go out for Mexican food and she asks for "rongi".  

- THREE - 
Griffin spends a lot of her day "in character".  She is BIG on imaginative play and if she's not Dr. GG then she's a mommy, or an artist, or Princess Elena,  or a firefighter rescuing kitties :)  I adore her imagination and creative spirit.


- ONE - 
I just finished Gilmore Girls.  Again.  When the new episodes came out on Black Friday I immediately watched them all and then went back and started from the beginning again and it just doesn't get old.  #lukeandloraleiforever

- TWO -
I'm getting a new classroom next year (adios, Math Trailer!) and have already started plotting/planning.  I have plans to ditch pretty much everything in my current room and start fresh.  It actually makes the thought of having to pack and move during the first month or so of school (AAAAH!!!) not as awful :)

- THREE -
I'm officially addicted to sheet masks.  I got a bunch in my stocking and have to make myself not use one every night.  

Happy Thursday, Friends!!!  What three things are going on with you right now?

  3. My Anderson is currently into basketball and he received several over the door basketball goals from various people for Christmas. Did we return some? Nope. He insisted that we keep them all. So now you can play basketball in most rooms of our house. Ha!

  13. Hi Andrea! I am a professor of speech pathology and missing 1-2 front teeth at a time shouldn't affect the production of sibilants (if that is what he is working on in therapy). It will broaden the air flow space which might change the precision a bit, but he can still work on placement of his tongue and be successful. Luckily those top teeth grow in fast once you lose the baby ones :)

  19. Sheet masks are masks that come in sheets. You take the mask our of the package (it looks like a ghost face with holes for eye, nose, and mouth, and you place it on your face and wait a few minutes before removing it and continuing on with your routine. They have ingredients like aloe vera and such in them, and feel like a "Wet One" on your face. They are awesome, though a bit scary looking when they are on!

  20. But why no Dave? I like to hear about him, too--you two are an inspirational couple :)
