Things I learned lately- 10/28-10/30/13

1. There is a fit-thrower in my new class.  Thus far, I have kind of been ignoring the fits and hoping he would cut them out.  Monday, I took a stand and let him know they would not be tolerated any longer.  He spent about 15 minutes crying in the hallway, and then rejoined the class and had a great day.  Fingers crossed the fits will soon be discontinued…

2. Well, the Titans didn’t lose this week!  We had a bye.  I am again in last place in the Pro Pick ‘Em League and my fantasy team lost again.  My fantasy team is now 3-5 and one of my players made 0 points, even though he played in the game.  Urgh!

3. Sammy decorated his first pumpkin Tuesday night.  He actually had a lot more fun undecorating the pumpkin, but it turned out pretty cute!

Argh!  I'm a pirate pumpkin, matey!

Undecorating the pumpkin is way more fun!

4. Mike and I rented “Oblivion” from the Redbox Tuesday night.  It was really confusing.  I thought I knew what was going on, but then I totally didn’t.  It reminded me of a combination of “Wall-E,” “A Wrinkle in Time, and “The Matrix,” with a bunch of weird clone stuff thrown in.  I give it a solid “hunh?”

5. Sammy is TERRIFIED of his beard bib.  Anytime it even gets near him, he screams his head off.  This bums me out, as I wanted some cute pics of him in his first Halloween costume.  Screaming pics are not so cute.

This picture was just the beginning of the meltdown.

6. I survived my first Halloween at Mother’s Day Out.  The kids all came in their costumes and went trick-or-treating among the classrooms.  I must say, kids in Halloween costumes are pretty adorable.  In our room, we had a cat, Thomas the Train, a witch, a pumpkin, Spider-Man, Batman, a fighter pilot, Bumblebee from Transformers, Captain America, a fairy, and two Little Mermaids.
