|Micah's a "Koalaty" Kid!|
If you've watched the video, you know that the title of this blog is the sound that Jacob thinks our hearts make :-) He just love to "Doc McStuffins" everyone! (Doc McStuffins is a popular cartoon about a little girl who treats her stuffed animals like patients and mends their boo boos.) If nothing else, it has helped him be a lot less afraid of going to the doctor.
Micah received his special t-shirt this week for collecting Koalaty (read:quality) points all year. The kids earn these points by turning in completed homework (yes, kindergarteners have this!), listening to the teacher, helping others, and completing reading assignments at home. He was so proud to bring this home. At the end of the year, if they get 500 points, they get a trophy. He loves the one he got last year and displays it on his dresser at home. He is on target to get another one! Micah has been chosen to play Humpty Dumpty in the school production "Lemonade!" in March. He is pumped about his role and practices his lines every night. (Is that a twinge of pride I see on Daddy's face? :-)) We have to come up with a costume for him, which should be interesting. Micah's still dealing with bronchitis and is on another antibiotic. We're really hoping this will do the trick for him.
Jacob has entered the "I do it!" stage of toddlerhood. This has proved frustrating at times, but at least we remember this is a stage and a healthy part of him becoming more independent. This morning he was fighting me about climbing up in his car seat. But I told him that "Doc McStuffins" was needed--stat--at the school to treat some patients. That did the trick :-)
