Ok, BB was/is having trouble adjusting to school. I wrote about this in a PREVIOUS POST. BB is not what you would call a calm kid. By any means. He loves to push and rough-house!
This is frowned upon at his kindergarten. Strange, huh?As the older, male role model, I feel partly responsible for this, because I am the one who tickles, wrestles and throws him around at home. He probably thinks this activity should be normal, and fun, because he loves it when I knock him down on the bed. Why wouldn't his classmates like it as well?
Anyway, we have had a couple reports that he is still pushing, but at least it is down to every other day or so. To me, GREAT VICTORY!! To the teachers, eh..not so much.
So I asked him how school was going, and he doesn't understand that question. I asked if he pushed at school, he said "no." I then phrased it "you pushed at school today, didn't you?"and he of course said "yes" which is leading the witness, so I have no clue what is really going on.
Until later, when BB shed a little light on the matter.
We were riding home in the car last night, just me, BB, and Peach. I reached into the back seat to tickle Peach's chubby little legs. She laughed and laughed, I then reached for BB's and he responded with these words:
"No, Daddy....Keep your hands to yourself!"
I have never said that to BB.
I called Mommy, and she said she may have said that to him once or twice.
I asked BB if his teacher said that to him and he said "Yeah."
So, I think the school thing is coming along. He DESPISES coloring and gets work sent home to finish what he didn't do in class. But he loves painting. I think he likes the messiness. He sings weird songs with melodies we can't recognize, and he doesn't remember the words, so I assume he listens in music.
All in all...so far so good...but we got a long way to go!!! And I look forward to every (other) minute!
