It's Wednesday again. Had a terrific night last night with The Peanut. Picked her up from tennis lessons and took her for dinner at a restaurant. While we waited for our orders we worked on her homework assignments, played her math game and practiced spelling. She has a huge spelling test coming up on Friday. She was given a list of 40+ words to study and the teacher will select about half for the test. I am proud to say she got every word right. It's my blog, so I can also say my child is a genius! We truly had the nicest dinner out that we've had in a long time. Came home and told her how much fun dinner was and that we were having an exceptionally good night. The praise seemed to fuel her behavior...so I kept praising her. Sat in bed with her while she read for 15 minutes and then turned the lights out. Felt very good last night.
I continued the "let's have a great time" theme this morning when I was getting her out of bed. Had our usual giggle time and then breakfast. She got dressed when I asked her to, brushed her teeth without incident and even remembered to flush! We were out the door on time and enjoyed a pink sunrise on the way to school.
We were at school on time and neither of us felt rushed. A great way to say goodbye for a couple of days. I wish it were like this every Wednesday.
