Project Life Week 26

Karen was in Maryland consulting for a client this week.

Tropical Storm Debby hit Florida this week dumping tons of rain and causing some minor flooding. Thank heavens we got our new week.

Kylie was named Class Ambassador this week. She wore a badge attached by a magnet to her shirt each day. In class, she got to bring the calendar over to the middle of the circle, hold the flag during the pledge and roll all the rugs during circle time. Ms Robin said Kylie took her roll seriously. At home we made a crown out of cupcake liners and crowned her several times. Way to go Ambassador Kylie!

Kylie made me a wonderfully goofy hat. She made it from a piece of newspaper with yarn and colored-picture attachments. It was tricky but I dutifully wore it in the house. She loves it when I act goofy for her.

On Thursday, Kylie & I made zucchini muffins. We gave a batch to her summer camp teachers Ms. Robin & Ms. Diane.

Kylie saw the preview for singer Katy Perry’s documentary movie and she heard the song, “Firework”. Every day this week she’s had me play it on the way to school (that’s seven repeats). She’s learned a lot of the words and has been singing the song at the top of her voice all week. And she’s announced that she wants to be a rock star when she grows up.

Kylie has been affected by night terrors. They happen about 1 1/2 to 2 hours after she falls asleep. She wakes up sobbing, sweaty and crying “Oh my gosh” over and over. We hope it is due to her ear infection and that once she recovers, the terrors will stop. It’s unnerving for all of us.

Kylie is learning how to write her name with a lowercase y.

Kylie likes to draw a picture of her digital clock and record what time she wakes up. And most of the time it is between 6:00 – 6:10am.

You have an incredibly beautiful family.
I must admit I went right back to the beginning of your blog and I've started working my way through chronologically after reading a few of your most recent posts.
I hope all three of you are well

Hi Wendy,

Quick note on the night terrors from a friendly neighborhood queer family therapist. Try waking her up (completely, not just a little bit) about a half hour after she falls asleep. It will reset her sleep system (I can send you empirical articles if you wish.) :-)
