Alice knocked Joe off a bottom stair today. I was furious. Poor kid took a header. I had warned her three times on her way down the stairs not to whack into him. Guess how much she listened?
This was J’s second header in 12 hours. Last night he fell on top of a sippy cup and gave himself a bloody nose. He got promoted to Toddler yesterday, and his new word is “coat”. When I picked him up today he went running for the coat rack. In the wrong classroom.
Catherine is very bothered by the injustice of getting tasked with cleaning up most of the messes the girls make. I just want them clean and it is too much trouble for me to divide it out, so R and A take terrible advantage of the fact that she’s the only one who listens and she gets stuck with it. This is a longstanding problem I haven’t solved yet.
R fell into hysterics earlier when someone mentioned “pants” and didn’t want to leave school today until she’d hugged a boy named Justin four times.
