Anyone who thinks I do things on my own is totally and completely wrong. I received two phone calls about homework last week....my daughter's teach emailed and stated: "Windy is not getting her homework completed and not having you sign where you need to" Adam's teacher had Adam call his dad and report he was also missing homework and signatures!! During week 2 of school???? We as parents come home and "get on them" give them the "this is unacceptable" talk and the warning and the punishment to come if this happens again!
In conversation I tell my mom of the conversations I had with teachers and the kids and she immediately jumps in I am off this day and this day I will come and get the kids from the babysitters and get them on their homework. My mom, Nana, states "maybe I can help get them in the routine of homework after school". I accept the help and move on. So glad Nana offered and I accepted, the first day has gone great, kids with homework done and Nana made dinner (YES)!! Kids are in bed, reading, but quiet and in bed (8:20) I am amazed and need the rest. I was also able to get a couple of other things done around the house along with taking one to practice and pictures and all the other in between!!! May I take a moment to say YEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAA for NANA she always helps us out so much!! I hope this puts the kids on the right track and NO MORE Homework calls!!!
And the "trying me" has had a good day with choices, food choices!!! Still keeping on, thanks for all the encouragement!!!
Special thanks to NANA, for all her amazing help!!!!
