Grasshoppers On Windows

I walked into the living room this morning to find Sebastian writing with his window markers on one of the living room windows. The random placement of words and art and the fact that he was writing very intensely, very motivated, reminded me of Good Will Hunting, when Matt Damon is doing math equations on the glass. Sebastian had drawn a picture of a grasshopper & had labeled the different parts of the grasshopper's body. Apparently they are learning a song about a grasshopper at school.  He'd also written some facts about the grasshopper all around it. The patio door had 3 heads drawn on it - 2 angry faces and 1 happy face (which was labeled "Sebastian"). The other door had a big pink splotch the size of the dog. Unfortunately we had a brand new aide starting today & our house is pretty funky looking as it is.. so the window drawings were cleared later that morning.

Sebastian is also learning , "Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes" in Spanish at school. He's been singing that.

I got my hair cut today - same lady that cut it last time, same lady that shaved Judah's head (well almost). She was his first ever normal haircut experience. I'll never forget that. This lady & I have such random things in common. It's always fun talking with her. Willow waited patiently on the floor behind us... she was laying on the hairy floor making funny noises pretty much the entire time. My kids are never boring.

Sebastian was writing pages & pages of numbers in his notebook.. and had been asking us what the very last number was. We explained that numbers never ended, that they just went on & on forever. Apparently he was very motivated to prove us wrong, because when I asked him why he was writing numbers in his notebook he told me that he was trying to get to the last number!

The new aide turned out to be a musician, artsy beautiful gal. It was her first day on the job. She was helpful & apparently spent hours chasing Judah on the playground this afternoon. She came back exhausted, but was still very positive & looking forward to spending more time with Judah. She let me know that Judah had been running because he was playing with other kids on scooters that entire time! One of the parents told her that he wished he would have brought their extra scooter so Judah would have one to ride. Total strangers. I love hearing things like that. :) She should be here regularly on Tuesday afternoons from now on.

Judah said, "Ross! Jacob!" when his friends were getting off the bus at school this morning. One of the school aides cued him to tell them, "Hi Ross, Hi Jacob", which he did. One of the boys came up and wrapped his arm around Judah's neck, giving him a tight head to head hug. They were both wearing huge smiles.

Willow is saying the funniest thing. "Are you ok Willow?" and her response.. "I'm doing just fine."  Gosh, I can't think of any others right now. But she is pretty hysterical! And of course so serious when she says these things!

Sebastian had Gramma study time today. We're having a lot of trouble getting him to bed at night - he starts acting up around bedtime, he gets really loud, once he's in bed he continues to be loud & act crazy. This of course keeps his brother awake. We need a new idea. Our ways of handling this are not working.

Judah missed fish oil, DMG with folinic acid, nebulizer, bethanecol, beta, coconut butter & had about 1/2 tsp molasses (supposed to have 1 tsp). He had a big poop.
