He's got homework

Well....Christopher came back with 2 pages of homework yesterday. According to the principal, it's homework time for his age group.

Part of me is thinking.....what is he doing during daycare? Not his homework? Or was there too much that he could not finish it in the 4 and a half hours he was there. Or was the teacher too busy to look out for his homework?

Sigh....anyways, homework for kid is homework for mummy.

Allowed him some TV before dinner. Took him 1 hour to finish his dinner. Let him rest a bit for 30 minutes. And then another hour of homework. Everything was done only by 10 pm. He whined for some cartoons so allowed him 30 minutes more.

And while Christopher was studying, Caylee was upstairs with the daddy. Most of her toys have been taken upstairs now until I can get the other room prepped as Christopher's study room. Daddy is sulking coz he is also stuck upstairs from 9 pm onwards with the girl. :)

I was exhausted coz at 10pm after teaching Christopher, I still had to hang up the laundry, iron his uniform, wash his bottle and tidy up for tommorrow.

Some restructuring required to get the jives in motion for this year. Maybe I need to put my personal plans aside for a while.

Jonathan yet to bring back homework. Hope not everyday. Last year he brought back homework only on Friday. He needed some pushing and coaching to get his homework done. *headache*

Oh..I thought the daycare supposed to take care of his homework too. Maybe you can ask the teacher and see. It is really not easy to take care of 2kids n the house.
