O.B.S.E.S.S.I.O.N.




This is my hell. My son, while a loving and joyful little boy is OBSESSED! Anything with letters, completed words, numbers he is your man. The first 2 pictures are from Wednesday afternoon. I was working on my webpage before lunch. He kept talking about something and I could hear him counting on his fingers and finally I was getting a little aggrevated as I was trying to concentrate. (WHICH IS NOT EASY WITH 4 KIDS +1 HUSBAND) So, A light bulb went off and I told him to go and grab the abacus. (Yes we have an abacus in our home, I told you the kid was obsessed) I showed him how to use the abacus instead of his finger. The Boy sat there and did 10....10 pages in the workbook. O.B.S.E.S.S.I.O.N. He had to pry the book from him little fingers to eat lunch. After lunch he went and washed his hands and face and came back and got his book and abacus and started back in.

This morning, (6:45am) I was just getting snuggled back down in my covers all nice and warm, baby nursing and I was sure I could get a few more winks in. (Baby was up nearly all night with a croupy cough) and I hear.

Ga be: "Psst...MOMMY"
Me: *grunt*
G abe: Psst MOMMY
Me: GO back to bed it is not time to get up yet.
G abe: Mommy, we have to get up! I HAVE to do MATH!!!
Me: Buddy, crawl into bed. You can lay on Daddy's side.
G abe: Mommy, I HAVE TO DO MATH NOW!!!!
Me: Buddy come on I am tired. After breakfast.
G abe: Mommy, I have to do it right now. I JUST HAVE TO!

Least to say, that last picture was taken this morning. Around 7am. It is 7:57am now and he is S.T.I.L.L. D.O.I.N.G. M.A.T.H.

Wow. It seems you've got yourself a smart little boy there. Conor likes words and letter but she could care less about numbers. She really is her mother's daughter.

As for Gabe's headaches and all that other stuff, you *know* that he's always in my prayers. I hope it's resolved for good very soon, Michelle.
