Bullying

J picked out the book EllRay James is NOT a chicken.

It’s about a third grade boy named EllRay James who is being bullied by two boys in his class.

I talked to J about it. I told him he is to tell his teacher about the bullying. I instructed him to advocate for himself and tell the bully ” Stop what he was doing. To state that he did not like that behavior.”  And he is to tell me about any bullying behavior. I half jokingly said I would unleash my crazy on the student and administrators. He chuckled and said he would tell me.

On Monday, a boy grabbed J and without me telling him he advocated for himself and told the little boy to stop his behavior and let go of him. The boy was put in timeout by his caregiver.

I am proud of J, he handled the situation calmly and directly. I know as a child I would have warned that kid and if he didn’t listen…I would’ve made him listen to my not so nice actions.

Sweetest Moment!

I was sleeping and J came over gently rubbed my head.

He rubbed my head the way I love rubbing his head at bedtime.

J quietly whispered ” I love you, see you later!”

J came by later and brought me a picture.

It was a picture of a circle and the numbers 1,2,3,and 4.

He made a pattern of blue and red on the numbers.

Memorable Quotes

While twisting my hair J looked at me in wonder. He said “Mommy, your are beautiful!”

He enjoyed touching my hair and he laid his sweet little head on my shoulder and I put my head against his and read our bedtime story Atlantis.

While he was playing at McDonald’s playing with kids. J told a little boy ” I have the best Mommy.” The little boy continued to talk about his Daddy and tried to get J to talk about his father. J listened quietly to him and ignored questions about his father and rebutted with ” I have the bestest Mommy, she loves and takes care of me.”

J tells me almost everyday. “Mommy, you love and take care of me!?” It is both a statement and question. I always answer back yes and that he is my joy and happiness. He smiles and hugs me.

If you talk to him or ask him a question and he doesn’t want to communicate he says ” I am not available.” or ” I don’t want to talk, please leave me alone.” or sometimes he screams ” Noooooooo! don’t talk to me !” or he will completely ignore me.

He made me chuckle when he told me “Raven has anger issues!” J loves Teen Titans Go!

J is my memorable happiness and joy because of him I smile everyday. God has blessed me infinitely.

Sorting by Color

J usually likes to line his trains and cars up.

Lately, he has been sorting by color.

He gathers different objects from different rooms and sorts miscellaneous objects together.

He has done this sorting with books; taking out several books and stacking them together.

He focuses on a color for several days, then moves on to another color.

The first was red. Next, orange. Last, was blue.

The funny thing is today in the morning it had been orange and by the evening it was blue.

J also enjoys dressing monotone. His shirt, pants, underwear, and hat will all be the same color.

This morning he was decked out in red and in the afternoon it was blue,

He says everything has to match.

I enjoy the zany and awesome  outfits he puts together.

He puts most of his clothes on backwards.

J has lost his TOTAL focus on Thomas trains. He enjoys art, especially painting. J will paint pictures or paint a page one solid color. Several months back he only wanted to use crayons when he was being creative. For Christmas, he received art supplies. Paint brushes, finger paints, storage bins , sun catchers, and beads.

I updated his art, music , and study room for his Christmas room. He enjoys it.

     

J has had a immeasurable success with his dog Gordon-Henry Issac. He informed me Issac is his last name which differs from ours.

GHI has eased anxiety. For example, he HATES to be ALONE. Yesterday, he was in his Grandparents home , while we all talked outside . He opened up the back door and asked ” Mom, can you come inside with me?” and I replied ” I am enjoying being outdoors talking to Grandma. You can bring your toys outside.” He said ” No, I don’t want to.” he shut the door and played inside.  Last, we he would have whined , cried and demanded that I play with him exclaiming he was scared and lonely. My Mom noticed a difference in his behavior .

J has NEVER slept in his own crib  or bed. He used to scream just passing his crib. He has had his bed three and a half years and hadn’t slept in it. For the last 3 nights he has been sleeping in bed without complaint.

Today, we experienced our first day of cooler weather.

A smooth cool breeze with overcast.

The High today was 72 C and 62 C for tonight’s weather.

This is the outfit J chose.

This is our current book storage situation:
