2-1-18 Ice skating with Coach Meegan after school. Working on her new program. Meegan said this will most likely be her last competition at the basic skills level, then she will move up to non test and possibly regionals this summer.
2-2-18 Ice skating with Coach Meegan again.
2-3-18 Daddy took her to her ice skating lessons this morning. Free Skate 6 and on-ice jumps. Playdate with Lilly all afternoon. They made cupcakes and slime.
2-5-18 Ballet in the evening.
2-6-18 She said her classmate, Grace asked her if she was a dwarf today because she’s so tiny. She’s perfectly proportionate, just small. She’s 9 and looks as if she’s 7 and only weighs 49 lbs. I’m just glad that she has self-confidence (at least she appears to), and she doesn’t seem upset by it. Ice skating with Coach Arlene after school.
2-7-18 Cousin Zarah’s birthday today, so she left a voice message for her. Went to my kid’s yoga class, then picked up her new glasses.
2-8-18 She said her friend, Addy stuck up for her today. Apparently, some 5th graders were talking about her and laughing because she is so petite. Addy told the to stop. She said that made her feel good and I told her she was just right and everyone comes in different sizes. Ice skating with Coach Meegan, then we went to Health & Fitness night at her school. She played with her friend, Max most of the night. At home, she’s online doing her iReady homework and she gets one too many answers wrong, and I hear her say, “How am I supposed to know this shit?!?” She sounds like me…not my proudest mom moment.
2-9-18 She brought home her report card today. So proud of the comments her teacher provided. The kid is such a better person than her parents! Lol! Dropped her off at daddy’s work after school, so he could take her to her ice skating lesson since I had to meet a client.
2-10-18 Daddy took her to her morning ice skating lessons, then dropped her off at Aunt Cindy’s because it’s Cousin Zarah’s 7th birthday. They went to a gymnastics place, then had birthday dinner at their house. I had to teach classes in the afternoon, so I skipped and took a break.
2-12-18 Daddy took her to school this morning since I had a morning class. The PTA is selling candy grams again for $1 this week. Students or parents can buy candy (Laffy Taffy) for their friends, kids and teachers. She bought one for everyone in her class. When I picked her up, she said she was the only one that didn’t receive one…I reminded her that’s because she bought all her classmates one. She said it didn’t bother her, but I think it did. I usually buy a few for her when they sell them. She asked if I would buy her some. She had ballet in the evening and daddy bought her soda since he felt bad for her. They started their secret pal gift exchange today through Valentine’s Day. She received 2 bottles of purple nail polish.
2-13-18 She took her Valentine’s box that her class was required to make for their cards. I stopped by the school at lunch and bought her 5 candy grams. Her friend, Max’s mom was there and said Max had bought her one today, so at least she’ll receive one from him. I went shopping for her secret pal, teachers and Max’s Valentine’s gifts after teaching my evening yoga class. Target was sold out of everything, so had to go to Fred Meyer…didn’t get home until 11pm. Daddy helped her make cupcakes because she wanted to take them to her classroom party tomorrow.
2-14-18 I volunteered at the school today and she received 3 more candy grams from me and Max gave her 2 and another friend gave her one. Ice skating with Coach Arlene after school. Classroom Valentine’s Day party…they made slime and had ice cream sundaes. Went to my kid’s yoga class after school. They did a partner pose and we called it Hershey Kiss pose. She received a cute clip on bear from Max and she gave him some Star Wars toys.
2-15-18 “Dress like food” day tomorrow…she tells me after school she wants to be a strawberry. I was thinking a fried egg would be easy (white fabric, cut into a shape of an egg, cut a hole in the middle to go over her head, glue on a yellow circle). But, noooooo, that’s not cute, she wants to be a strawberry! So, after ice skating at 5pm, we go to Target, Burlington, Old Navy, Sears, Fred Meyer looking for a plain red t-shirt or dress…nothing! After yoga, I run to another mall and find a pineapple shirt at Macy’s 15 minutes before they close…I’m done! She can be a pineapple! Decide to stop at another Target on the way home just to check and find a red t-shirt in the BOY’S section…she refuses to wear it because it’s a boy’s shirt! Good! Because I am not cutting the seeds and gluing them on at this point!!! Red t-shirt and fabric glue getting returned tomorrow!
2-16-18 Dress Like Food day today. She’s the cutest pineapple ever! Ice skating in the afternoon with Coach Meegan.
2-17-18 Daddy took her to her morning ice skating lesson, then the neighborhood kids congregated at our house to play and make slime. Why is our house ALWAYS the house they hang out at?!?
2-18-18 I taught yoga classes all afternoon, so not sure what her and daddy did all day.
2-19-18 No school today. She went to Mid Winter Camp all day, then had ballet.
2-20-18 No school again. Went to camp again for half the day. I picked her up early, then she had ice skating with Coach Arlene.
2-21-18 Back to school, then to my kid’s yoga class.
2-22-18 Volunteered in her class today. Taught the art docent class on Chinese art. Some of the students are great artists. Her teacher said their math specialist is running a challenge, high level thinking math group once per week for a select group of students and she has been selected to participate…she has her daddy’s engineer brain…he’s the only person I know that likes Common Core math. Had ice skating with Coach Meegan after school. After her competition in March, she will start working on her axel.
2-23-18 Ice skating with Coach Meegan.
2-24-18 Daddy took her to her group ice skating lesson.
2-25-18 Daddy bought her Minecraft for her xBox, so the neighbors came over all afternoon to play. Apparently, they didn’t tell their mom where they were because I received a text asking if I’d seen them because she couldn’t find them.
2-26-18 Ballet in the evening.
2-27-18 Ice skating with Coach Arlene, then daddy took her to PTA Roller Skating night since I had to teach yoga.
