Weekend Reflection #49 The Chocolate Milk Song

Grab the Weekend Reflection Code

I can not believe that it is the weekend already. Have I said that before? Probably.

Anyway I have to make this brief because I am writing at 6:30 in the morning and it is Palm Sunday so I need to be at mass before 9.

Sorry I am publishing Weekend Reflection so late. Yesterday was a busy day. I had to clean our messy home and take care of laundry mountain all before 3pm. We had a party to go to that afternoon for a couple of friends of ours who are moving to Denver.

The party was a lot of fun and the weather was nice so the kids played outside the whole time. It is supposed to hit 78 degrees today.

Chris put in some overtime at work this past week, which was nice. He talked to his boss about why they are not offering benefits even though they are now working full time. His boss said that if he requests benefits the company would probably cut his hours.

Courtney had a good week at school. She had her jogathon and ran 26 laps. So I was pretty proud of her. We took her to the gym recently and since her last doctors appointment in October she has lost nearly 10 pounds. She used to have a little bit of a pot belly but now it is gone. I am so proud of her. She looks great for age 12.

Ciara is still misbehaving so we are trying something new this week. I made a behavior modification chart for her. I have the days of the week on top and all the behaviors that I want to alter on the side. For example, slept in my own bed, was nice to siblings, and kept my clothes on. Those are just three out of the seven that I listed. Yes she needs a lot of work. Then I picked up some small toys at Wal-Mart and the Dollar Tree and put them in a bag. (eventually I will make a prize box for them, I just haven’t gotten around to that yet.) We are going to start off slowly. If she gets four stars then before bed time she can pick a prize. Eventually we will increase it to all seven stars. She’s only had the chart for two days so we’ll see how it goes.

I’m also making a potty chart for Conan. His chart will only have three things on it, sat on the potty, went pee pee on the potty, went poo poo on the potty. He can pick a prize at the end of the day if he has a star on his chart. Eventually I will increase his stars too.

Conan has been cracking us up lately. He made up a song. Yes he is 20 months old and is now a composer…well sort of. He dances around the room singing, “I want chocolate milk because I love chocolate milk. Give me chocolate milk.” Every day he puts it to a different melody. I NEED to get this on video so I can share it with you. It is so funny!

Okay, I have to run. Need to get ready for mass. I would love to hear about how your week went! I’ll put up the Prayer Chain and Faith Filled Sundays this afternoon. And remember I am on Pacific Standard Time so it might be later this evening for some of you.

    It is so hard to believe how much Conan talks at 20 months! Neither of my kids are talkers. Blake is 19 months now and only says maybe 10 words, but he is picking up new words constantly. There is no way he’d be singing us a song that we could understand! LOL! If you catch that on video, I would love to see it! 🙂

    He is something else. I have to get more video of him. Conan has always been cognatively advance ever since he was born. When he was two months he was already doing raspberries. By the time he was 10 months he had a 50+ word vocabulary and was talking in complete sentences shortly after he turned a year. Now at 20 mos he repeats everything that you say. Can sing at least a dozen children’s songs and a couple of pop songs that his big sister listens to (Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers), can count to 20 all by himself, knows all his primary colors and can count to ten in Spanish. He also knows a few words in sign language. I need to work with him more because his little brain is such a sponge.
