We had parent teacher conferences last night. Things went well.
He's above average on knowing his numbers, letters (and sounds of letters), shapes and colors.
He needs to work on being in groups. I'm thinking maybe we'll try a reading group at Borders again. They told us that in the middle of a group activity, Mica got up and started singing "I like to move it move it" from Madagascar. Silly boy.
He has to work on cutting. They said that it's like he can't cut. His muscles in his hand aren't developed enough. So I brought up having him play with a sponge or sponge ball in a bucket, and ringing it out. This sounds silly, but I think it might help to develop those muscles.
They told us that he's a perfectionist. He doesn't like art because when he creates something he gets frustrated if it doesn't look perfect.
He's above average with puzzles. They were shocked that he could figure out a puzzle of the United States with small pieces.
They told us that him and Evan (his cousin close in age) do not hang out together at preschool. They act more like brothers, so I'm sure they get sick of one another.
At Elijah's birthday party we had a fun time. I was cracking up over one incident. It had nothing to do with Elijah.
I told Mica to go potty. Kids forget when there is lots going on. Anyway, he opened the bathroom door, Travis just saw my grandma in there washing her hands, and Mica shut the bathroom door with my Grandma and him in there together. They were in there for a little while. Long enough for Mica to go to the bathroom anyhow. I'm sure Mica just went in there, hopped up on the stool, and went pee right in front of her. My grandma is pretty forgetful, so we didn't know what was going on in there. We didn't think anything bad; we just found it funny. My grandma usually calls the boys, "girls". I was wondering what she was thinking when she saw Mica peeing standing up. Probably deep down inside she knows he's a boy. Mica has no modesty. I'm still laughing about it.
Thomas is loved at our house. We have this Thomas the push-ride toy, and a dump truck that the boys push around. I thought Isaak and Elijah (cousin's 2 months apart) could start using them. The big boys always take them before the little ones can get to them. They run around in circles in our house.
