So far so good

I know it has only been a week and the newness of being back in school hasn't worn off yet, but J-man has really impressed me.

He is bringing home his agenda -- signed by his teachers, his homework, and any papers that were given out for our signature. This is a 100% turn around from last year.

I only hope he doesn't get "bored" and start back pedaling. In the mean time I am praising him to the heavens. He really is a good kid and this was an eye-opening experience for him.

And one I don't think he wants to repeat.

Kid L is so not ready for school to start so I am scared that we will be starting the year with hell.

CCW: Girl, I can totally relate. My stomach has been in knots for the past week. I've got my fingers crossed for you.

Melanie said...

I don't know the whole story, but sounds like he is ready to be responsible. Hope for you both this lasts.

Melanie: Thank you for the good wishes. Long story made short: J-man failed 6th grade last year, and boy did he struggle. This year is a fresh start for him and we are hoping it jolted him into reality. He is making MUCH wiser choices so far.

We need all the luck we can get.

Sounds like an auspicious beginning. I hope he spends the REST of the year like this.

Good work, J-man. I know you can do it!

Valerie said...

Woo hoo! Keep up the good work J-Man.

Marni - Positive reinforcement is always good. You are a great mom. :)
