Spaz Attack

Thoughts from a big spaz who has lots to spaz about.

Sunday, July 04, 2010

I woke up with a hive or a bug bite on my left cheek- nothing like a big ol' red WELT on your face to make you feel beautiful and ready for the world! :)

Tyler is turning into a big NAG! (Sorry, Tyler, but it's true!) I call him my little "ha la bul gi" (grandfather in Korean) because he is always nagging a Korean halabulgi would! If I change lanes without doing the blinker, he asks, "Aren't you suppose to make your lights blink when you're changing lanes?" OH MY! If I check my phone when I'm driving in the car, he yells, "Give me that phone! You are not allowed to touch your phone when you are driving! It is ILLEGAL and you will go to jail!" He is really into learning what is legal and what is illegal these days. One day, he wasn't getting ready fast enough to leave the house so I told him I was leaving him at home alone. He surprised me when he calmly said, "You can't leave me here alone. You're not allowed to leave children at home by themselves. You will go to jail or maybe do community service." I was laughing so hard. Where do they learn these things?!!!

Another thing that Tyler does is tell me when he does something bad. We went to a pool party the other day and he kept coming out of the pool and whispering something in my ear. After the fifth time, another mom asked me what he was saying. I told her that he was telling me that he thinks he was swallowing some of the pool water which I had asked him not to do so he felt the need to confess to me. Another thing that I ask him not to do is stare at people. I must have told him once that he shouldn't stare at people who might be handicapped or might be different in some way. Yesterday, we were at the play area of a mall and he ran up to me a couple of time to tell me something along the lines of, "I stared at that woman right now, but I was staring because I thought she had the same shirt as you but she doesn't. I'll try not to stare at people." Haha... That is my Tyler....wants to know what is right/wrong, what is good/bad and wants to do the right and good thing.

Which reminds me. Tyler forgot to do one sheet of homework for Korean school last month and the teacher told me he cried for a good hour. When I went to pick him up, he had red eyes and his folder was wet from tears. The teacher told me that half the class didn't finish their homework and that she had repeatedly told him that it was ok but that he just kept crying. She also told me that not one other student cared that he/she didn't finish their work...only Tyler. I felt so bad...I completely feel like if a preschooler, kindergartner, or 1st grader doesn't finish his/her homework, it's the parents fault! In this case, I take full responsibility. I even told him that morning not to check his folder for unfinished work because I was thought he had finished all of it. After I picked him up, I hugged him and I told him not to worry, that sometimes things like this happen and it's not the end of the world. He was still very sad about the whole situation. Very typical Tyler story. I don't know where he gets this. Katherine told me the other day that her kids' personalities, which are all so different from one another, have nothing to do with what she or her husband did, but that her three children are the way they are because that is how God made them. I'm starting to think that is true.

Hope you are enjoying your 4th of July!!! Some competitive eating contest is on TV right now. Why in the world would people force feed themselves? I would never do this...that is just plain gross. I know nothing of it but maybe the the prizes are great.

Motto for the year: (I know that it's probably weird for some of you that I make goals in the middle of the year,  but if you are a teacher, you understand....cause for teachers, summers are the beginning of the next year, right? This is when I buy my new calendar!) 1. Save money 2. Don't THINK about doing things, don't LOOK up how to do things online, don't READ about it....JUST DO IT! JUST DO IT! JUST DO IT! :)
