Walters sleeping on the floor again. He held his ground last night. I procured a “pinky promise” he’d sleep in bed on school nights. We’ll see. Those pinky promises can be shakey propositions with the 7 year old mind.
Dudette has had a spectacular weekend with Walter. Watched her lay down the law and walk away yesterday. I also saw Walter fall in line. The girl can roll when she gets out of her own way. I love her with all my heart but her desire to talk and be heard kill her with him sometime. Believe in yourself enough and you don’t need the acknowledgment or attention. He’s our little “look at me fiend.” Not the other way around. I know how hard this is on her and I’m very proud of her. When the boat of dreams beaches itself on reality shore enjoying the beach can be tough.
The old, fart, homework machine approached Dudette last week and asked about homework AGAIN. My plan is to corner her in the classroom and just scream “SERIOUSLY?!?” repeatedly for 45 minutes. Dudette thinks we should ignore her. We’ll try her plan…for now.
