Mr. Stefon is student of the month!!! I figured I would give him his own post since I give him such a hard time. The boy is not bad, he is just different then his brother and sister. When they were little you never knew they were in the room. They sat down nice and quiet and didn't move. Perfect, I tell you. When Mr. S was born, I don't think he took kindly to the quietness and decided to mix things up a little. So, when you tell him to do something he has to ask why? how come or any thing else (because we said so). A brilliant child but dang.
Any who, Mr. S has been on t.v. restriction a little before Christmas. Not because he was bad, but because I felt like he was behind in school, not on level. One thing you should know about me is I value education (I think that is why my folks have so many problems, we got away from it) Enough preaching about that. Anywho, I told him that he could no longer watch t.v. during the week. On the weekend is fine, but he did try to get over in the beginning and said. Well, since I can't watch t.v. during the week, does that mean I can play my game. Um, no. What does one have to do with the other? My kids can't play video games during the week.
So, last Thursday, he wanted to know if he could get off restriction and I told him no. Not until I receive something from your teacher (although, I was going to let him off, because I saw improvements). He said, well what if she doesn't give me anything. I let him sweat and said, well.
Friday, I get a phone call from his teacher and she said that she see a tremendous improvement. He is not only on level - he is doing much better. She said he is participating in class, raising his hands (and making gestures, saying stuff like - all man, I know that one) and helping others with their work. Go Stefon, it's your bday!!
I am so proud of the little monster - we made a big deal and told everyone like we did Anger Mgmt and he was so excited. He wants approval from his big bro College Boy, so I made sure I told him and he went upstairs and especially congratulated him and he was cheesing for days.
What was a trip though was when he said.....you know people get stuff for being students of the month. And I said from who your school, he said, uh yeah and your parents too......
