I live for Fridays! It cracks me up when I am teaching the days of the week and my students say "Mrs. A Friday is your favorite day of the week!" haha. They know me so well! Speaking of my students... my new one is going to drain the life out of me the rest of the year. Today he started the day off fine. I picked them up from fine arts and it was like a whole different child. Not able to walk in a line, hitting his head on the poles in the hall way. We got back into the room and transition onto the carpet to listen to a read aloud. Nope... he wouldn't move. I counted to 5 (really loudly) letting him know I wasn't messing around, nope still wouldn't budge. So I let him sit there. I'm reading The Little Red Hen, and I start hearing hooting and howling noises. The rest of my class was freaking out! I ignored it because it was obvious he wanted negative attention for which I will NOT give him. I send the rest of the class back to their seats to do independent reading. He proceeds to tell another student "I'm gonna kill you" that was where I drew the line! I sent a note over to my friend on my first grade team and she buzzed the office to have him removed. I didn't want to draw attention to his behavior so I didn't buzz from my own room. WHAT the hell am I suppose to do with this child? This was his 3rd day in my room! Its like a tiny bomb. I don't know what to expect to happen next. I've had children like this in the past but not in a while! I've been spoiled this year with my sweeties! Ahhh, I knew it was too good to last!
Besides that, not too much new. We are picking up my SIL (Dh's sister) and her hubs from the airport late tonight. They knew we were TTC but don't know we are PG yet. She is totally expecting it though because when MIL told her we were picking her up she said, "Any news to share?" haha. Its been killing MIL lying to her all week! SIL is PG too. Her EDD is June 5th and mine at this point is Sept 5th. So they will be close in age. Nothing new with my sister. The one willing to carry the baby went to talk to an attorney. They told her it would be around $2000 for it all and from what she has heard that is good. So its still going to cost a ton of money on both ends. But so far I think its going to happen in the next 6-8 months! Its exciting for her!

It's always scary to get the new kids - you just never know what's coming. See what you can find out from the old school. It may be helpful.

Have fun with your sister!
