A Successful Day

"Finn had a good day," were his teacher's exact words.

Now when I asked Finn about his day, he happened to mention, "I hit some kid." Nice. Why? "He was making a lot of noise and wouldn't be quiet." So we had a discussion that we don't hit people (as if we'd apparently never had conversations before that we don't hit people). He did get a "time out" as a result: he had to clean up the toy area. Much more to my liking than sitting facing the wall.

And then we had a further discussion about repercussions at home if he is hitting people at school. Don't want you to think I'm lax on discipline or anything.

Yipee! For a good day at school. (minus the hitting) I hope the mean man teacher is history and will be a thing of the past. Learning is a good thing.

Glad he had a good day. And I L-O-V-E the idea of time out being work related. I'll have to use that here at home!!

No wonder Ashley has an "aura" about her when she ends her frickin message with "blessings" like she's all sweet or somethin!


OK, about Finn - great news and I'm so glad to hear it.

Yay for a good day at school (minus the hitting, but hey, loud noise can get annoying)! Hopefully the memories of his old class will soon be a thing of the past.

Yay for a good report at school, and no fights on Sunday night. So maybe he wasn't the perfect student - you gotta take what you can get! Sounds like it's a good start. :-)
