He lost tooth #5 yesterday, thank goodness, it was the 2nd one on the top front to go and I swear to you, t was looking like it was starting to stick straight out of his mouth!
It is a funny look, I have to take some pictures for prosperity sake!
I don’t write about it daily but I want everyone to know how hard i work as a stay at home dad. Pick-up from school is at 2:38 pm, then we head straight to the NYC public playground behind the school, broken into 2 parts, one for younger kids and one with several basketball courts. It has been freezing cold and there are very few of us out there but this is what we do all winter long (and Spring as well, I can’t wait!). I do dress warm and sometimes we are out there for 2 hours! I come home needing a major defrost! As long as he is running around having fun and staying away from the TV I am happy to do this, that’s why I am here!
There are always at least a couple of people from Kindergarten to 5th grade from school that he can run with/after. He was playing tag with 3 fifth grade girls the other day and as athletic as he is he never caught any of them. He is just happy to get attention from older kids, and luckily I knew the mother of one so we could talk about NYC life TO DISTRACT OURSELVES FROM THE FACT THAT WE WERE FREEZING!
Today is Friday, he has behaved all week in school (knock on wood, and I have yet to hear today’s report), so we head first to game Stop to see if they their in-house Wii set-up and then Blockbuster where there is an in-house XBox 360 set-up. I am not buying anything that hooks up to a TV at this point, after all he just got a Nintendo DS that he is addicted to, that’s enough for now. As long as it is something that he can earn he tries harder in school to behave, me I am just grasping at whatever parenting tools I can grab to help my kid!
