I'm hoping to arrange a visit from Roman's teacher this week. She wants to bring cards that his classmates have made, and then hopefully encourage some Math work and reading. Roman's got thank-you notes to write as well for very thoughtful people, so that will count as some handwriting, I hope!
We have seen an increase in behavior issues from Charlie that we attribute to the crazy mixed-up schedule earlier in the week. He actually had 2 incident reports from daycare on Friday, one where he bit a kid because the kid was in front of him on the playscape, and another where he was pushed first and he bit that one too. I know it's frustration over lack of language, change of routine, Roman getting a ton of attention, and all that. But Ro was never a biter so we don't quite know what to do about this!
Meanwhile, our house has been decorated for the holidays and we're entering Broken Leg, Phase Two: Daddy Stays Home on Monday. I'm sure I'll have another update soon!
