A Day Off



Jaxson has been feeling very grumpy lately and I figured that he was acting that way because he isn't getting what he needs from me. I try to spend good, quality time with my children each day, but hey, I'm human and sometimes life gets the best of me. So I called his school today and told them he wouldn't be there. I did, however, check with the office first on the attendance policy. Apparently, they aren't too worried with how many days a kindergarten child misses. So we went to Seagull Book and found some great Christmas stories (awesome prices! if you love books go check them out), and then we went to McDonald's for a Happy Meal. Then we built towers out of Dixie Cups. This is a very cheap way to spend an afternoon! And we spent a lot of time reading stories. I must say that he has behaved better today than he has in a LONG time. We had the best day together! I guess when kids act up what they usually need most is love! I love you, Buddy!

You are such a sweet mom! Sounds like a fun day--I bet Jaxson loved it!

I hear you loud and clear. Attention is key at our home too. And Nathan wants it from his dad especially. You're a great mom!
