It is so quiet in the house right now it is kind of spooky. The only sound is coming from the doves up on the chimney. My Z is growing up so fast, today I need to go register him for Kindergarten, I know they grow up but I like this age he is at, he still listens to me most of the time. He will go to Kinder and start listening to his friends and ignoring me. J does that now and talks back and I hate it. What can you do about that, is it just a phase. If it is a phase my sister never grew out of it. I punish my kids, they get time outs, get things taken away and I spank them also, nothing seems to work. I even try to talk to them, on their level of course but as always it goes in one ear and out the other.
On a good note Z is progressing well in his Speech Therapy. He talks more plainly and can say most of his S sounds and is working well on his F, Y and L sounds. I am hoping to be done with speech by the end of his Kindergarten year, I really don't like him being labeled as special needs, it could lead to problems later down the road.
I need to buckle down on my own education needs now that both of the boys will be in school full time come fall, I think I have finally decided to pursue education, I am not telling anyone just yet, especially my mother who always puts me down for it. I really don't know why she does it, but it makes me feel so bad, I think that is what has taken me so long to decide what I was going to do for a career. I pursed education right out of high school but I can still remember what she said to me when I told her, You need to be an excellent student to become a teacher and I don't think you will be good enough, now why wouldn't a mother encourage her child to pursue a great field like that. I would be teaching right now or at least have my degree and certification. Don't get me wrong, I love my mother but I think sometimes she just wanted me to be average and not to excel. Oh well enough for the pity.
On other news, I do think we have secured financing on the lot we our purchasing, we are closing on it the 29th.
