Lack of Sleep

I didn't sleep well last night. Troubles with mouthy monster. The school is saying that she has some form of learning disability, what they don't know. They want to test her. I had a parent/teacher today. I agreed to have her tested. But I also went digging through boxes at 3 am to find the hooked on phonics that I bought at a yard sale this past summer. All but one of the cards is there. So guess what we started doing today! Yep, you got it! She is doing better then they said she was doing in class......hmmmmmm! Go figure. But she will be reading and doing much better with the math by the end of this year. And if she isn't then Grim and I have already talked that we will need to do something more drastic. I really don't want to have to homeschool but I will do what is best for my monster.

I did an hour yesterday and an hour today on the treadmill. As long as I keep doing it at least my core will get stronger and maybe I will loose some weight....but then again with the holidays right around the corner I will be happy not to gain any....LOL!

Tomorrow we are going to take my FIL and lay his ashes to rest at a military cemetary. He passed away a year ago. And my MIL wasn't sure what she was going to do with the remains. Then she was speaking to someone at another funeral and they said they would help to get a spot for my FIL. The color gaurd will be there and from what I understand he will be placed in a tomb thing, not in the ground. All this will take place while 2 of the 3 monsters are at school and we need to get back by the time they get out of school. The cemetary is about an hour away. I don't think it will take long but I have never been to this type of service before. Then band monster has a concert that she is part of all weekend.

Now I'm off to get band monster from practice!

Gotta Run,

busy woman you are.... Glad to hear you were able to work with your child in regards to the so called issue the teacher said existed.... I hate the labels they give to kids these days at school... there seems to be a label for everything these days.... Hope your day goes well.

I'm sorry about your Father in Law, but I'm glad that there will be a form of closure for you guys.

My son is going to be meeting with the Child Study Team at his school (7th grade) because his therapist thinks he has ADD or NVLD (Non Verbal Learning Disability, a new one for me, but it sure does fit). I'm also fighting for my daughter to get an IHP or a 504 through the school district for her Celiac Disease, so I feel your pain, both as a mother and with what you hopefully won't have to deal with as far as the school board. Keep me updated!
