Tali got accepted to his school!!!! It’s a great day. They want him to come in and meet his teacher and take a few assessments on Monday (yes, my birthday). That’s okay though. I couldn’t ask for a better birthday gift than getting him enrolled in the only Blue Ribbon Public School in the City (and it’s FREE!!!!!).
The youngest Tali has been going through some emotions lately. He’s 2 and he’s entitled. If he weren’t so funny, I would have a breakdown. My mom was here on Saturday and we were sitting outside with the boys. He was engrossed with my neighbor’s cat. He was more than engrossed, he was stalking him. The cat looked like he wasn’t having it. So whenever he got close…..the cat started hissing. My mom yelled out “Tali, don’t touch that cat.” He waved his little finger at us and said “I Be Right Back. I WANNA TOUCH A CAT!”…..So I said, ” Son….stay away from that cat.” “MOMMY, I WANNA TOUCH A CAT” “No.” “I WANNA TOUCH A CAT!”
“Tali….don’t do it.” “**waves finger** I WAAAAAANNNNNNNAAAA TOUCH A CAT, I BE RIIIGHT BACK”.
So finally he touches the cat and gets scratched. Does he cry? No, he tries to punch the cat. Whew. Can we have a group prayer for the Taurus child? (Thanks for cursing me Slish). That boy is gonna require a lot of work.
The oldest is getting so big I can’t even fathom where the time is flying. He was a baby last week, now he’s off to Kindergarten in September. I will be doing school shopping and everything. It feels surreal. You know, I keep telling you guys that I have these moments when I have to shake my head like….WOW, I am someone’s mother.
Here’s a picture of my Trini boys at Philly carnival last week…..
If that doesn’t make you smile…..I don’t know what does. Have a great day.
