His favorite teacher is his math teacher, Mrs. Sorino. She adores him. He always has been a good student.
I am learning that older boys love food...and that is one way to win them over. But instead of otter pops, they need Pizza, and soda.I am worried that they wont be around as much. I don't really know how to entertain them...other than to let them play x-box, and feed them. They don't need as much entertainment. They can take care of themselves in lots of ways. They can ride their bikes to 7-11, or the movie theater. They can play air soft in the gully for hours. They can organize their own night games. In fact the only thing I feel useful for is tellling them to "turn off the x-box, do your homework, practice guitar, go to bed, get up out of bed, brush your teeth, feed the dog, mow the lawn, take out the garbage, clean your room..."I have become a nag instead of a fun mom, "be home before it gets dark, don't forget to call me, stop teasing your brother..."I hope I can still be the mom that Clint needs me to be. But adolescence is a whole new world.
At least I still have a few good years left with Derek and his friends.
