Thursday, I was not a happy camper when Emma came back from school. She told us her teacher, also the director of the school, slapped her 3 times on the head because she was talking with a schoolmate . I think there are other way to discipline a child ... She could have given her some work to do at home. Emma is a bright child who always get good grades so she doesn't deserve being treated that way (No children deserve to be slapped on their head !) Chuy went to see the teacher but that woman always try to avoid the parents . When you think Emma is in a private catholic school that uses the Montessori pedagogy ... Anyway her teacher is leaving the school as she's going on maternity leave, so we hope the substitute teacher is going to be nicer ...
Yesterday, Steb had his school play. The play included the 3, 4 and 5 years old. It was about the colors based on the book: Mouse paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh. The little blond in blue who is running in mine !!! I tried to cirlcle him and used the pic but it didn't work ... I'm so bad at doing anything with my pictures .... So Steb is like Pierre: he's not too happy being watched by a crowd.
I wonder what my boy was checking .... Is it a guy thing?
Then someone hit him by accident (or a mean 3 yo tried to ruin the whole show? I caught it on picture !!! )
And my baby started to cry ... See these teary eyes?
You can't see it but his girlfriend came to confort him (yes, he aleardy have a girlfriend; her name is Audrey. He likes them older: she's 4 yo !!! ) The teachers did a great job considering the kids are so young. I think that Pierre and Steb won't become actors but Emma asked me to join an acting class next year (she used to love those plays and was often the first role because she was not scared and had a great memory!)
We are working on the house yesterday. This is our dining room window: bare and white like the whole house.
So we headed to the home improvement store and we got those curtains (do you notice something?):
Yes, there is something stitched on it !!!! Isn't it neat?
The curtain is in natural linen. I really like them. Do you think I should get the same curtain for the french window in the living room? (same big room actually.) Or should I get a different one in the same color?
I'm still working on the leaf (the one I forgot ... )
Of course, I did stitch most of the 2/2 and left the 1/2 : I like to treat myself with little pleasures ...
The kids are now on winter vacations for two weeks! It's good as they are tired. This morning, Steb and Emma woke up at 9 am !!! Hard to believe as my kids are known to wake up early when there is no school ...
My baby is growing: he doesn't say "moma" anymore but grand'ma like the older ones. I asked him: "say moma". He looked at me with a serious look and said "grand ma!" (like: I'm not a baby anymore so I don't baby talk ... )
Before I forget! Blue tagged me. I have to show my sixth picture in my last folder and tag 5 persons. So here it is:
It's Beary sweet memories by Dimensions. I'm going to tag Andie (I'm sure she has beautiful pictures to show us.), Marita, Yvonne, Pumkin, and Tanja !!! If you have already did it maybe you can do it with the 7 th picture in your 7 th folder
You're still here? Congratulations, you deserve a big
