And This Is What He Looked Like

Sai 1st Grade

This is what Sai looked like on his first day of school. What a goofy face! I like his natural smile much better than this posed one. He had a good first day. He couldn’t remember the names of any kids in his class and didn’t play with them. He played with his friend from the neighborhood, though. He has a maximum of 20 minutes of homework a night, 15 of which is supposed to be reading. I guess we better be heading to the library soon!

Jay was awake this morning when Sai and I left. Oh how he cried! I felt so bad for him! I made a compromise, though. Usually when the babysitter is over they get to play Nintendo or PlayStation but not until AFTER they eat breakfast. I told him he could play for a half hour before breakfast. That made him stop crying.

One thing I really like about getting back to school is getting the kids to bed early! It means I don’t get to spend as much time with them a day as I would like, however, I have more time to relax without them running around and yelling and playing. Ideally 8:00 bed time is best. I’m shooting for 8:30 this week. Last night the boys were in bed by 8:45. We’re working on it. Sai was pretty tired last night and had huge dark circles under his eyes.

    We haven’t even started school yet (next week!) but we’re aiming for 8:00 bedtimes this week. Last night (FHE!) it didn’t happen. Ugh. Those first few weeks of school it seems like everyone is so tired!

    He looks so cute!

    Well, bed times are getting better! I had the boys in bed by 8:20 last night. YAY! But they each got up once. I’m hoping by the end of next week we’ll make 8:00 or 8:15. Last year I spent the week before school transitioning them to the earlier bed time. I didn’t this year because it takes away from the time I get to spend with them after work. This is one part of being a working mom again that isn’t fun.

    That is a great picture of Sai. I need to get his little bag made up and bring over for Jay. It has been too hectic.

    Thanks for the bag. Sai and I rushed out this morning so I didn’t get a chance to tell the babysitter about it.
